We assume that you have already read our previous post which says that the untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.0.1 is finally here thanks to pod2g and now comes the step by step guide on how to get your device untethered on iOS 5.0.1.
Before going forward, I advise you read our post about the specifics of this iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak.
- If you rely on a Gevey SIM or Ultrasn0w (for old basebands only) unlock, DO NOT update to the stock firmware update offered by iTunes. Instead, use this latest version of Redsn0w to cook a custom firmware file without the upgraded baseband. Preserving your baseband means you can unlock it with Ultrasn0w or Gevey SIM after you jailbreak iOS 5.
- To do this, click on “Extras” option and then select “Custom IPSW” option. Select the required iOS 5.0.1 IPSW firmware file, and let Redsn0w make the custom firmware for you. Once done, enter Pwned DFU mode by selecting “Pwned DFU” again from Redsn0w’s Extras option, and then restore [NOT update] to this custom firmware using iTunes. Once done, unlock your iPhone using Gevey SIM, or the updated Ultrasn0w.
- Below guide is for those who are running a stock iOS 5.0.1 version. If you are already on iOS 5.0.1 and jailbroken [tethered] use this Corona Untether 5.0.1 Guide to get your device untethered. [Coming SOON ]
