Last week we gave you a status update on the latest jailbreak and speculated that it would be available very soon. Famous iOS hacker, @pod2g has finally released the untethered iOS 5.0.1 jailbreak. The hack only has support for non-A5 devices at the moment; this means the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 do not get a taste of freedom just yet.
The news broke via pod2g’s blog:
Hello, as expected, the Chronic Dev Team and the iPhone Dev Team have released the A4 untethered for 5.0.1 based on my work.
It is exactly the same set of files, either distributed as a Cydia package for those that are already tethered or a redsn0w bundle for new users.
They both did a great job testing and integrating the payload.
For more information on how to jailbreak and download the required files, visit the iPhone Dev-Team’s blog.
