With the recent release of iOS 5 BETA 5 a jailbreak wasn’t far behind, while it is a tethered jailbreak using Redsn0w it’s still better than nothing right? iPhone Dev team have confirmed that the jailbreak does indeed work but the tethered jailbreak maybe troublesome for those of you who run out of battery or have to restart their devices so do proceed with caution and keep in hopes of an untethered jailbreak to come in the near future.
Redsn0w is a popular application compatible with Windows and MAC OS’s to help users who own Apple devices such as iPod Touch 3G / 4g, iPhone 4, iPad / iPad 2 jailbreak their device (tethered and untethered) to the latest Apple iOS, with the release of iOS 5 beta 5 Redsn0w has already released the latest version of their software which SHOULD help users jailbreak their iOS 5 device but do keep in mind that untethered jailbreak is a bit of an inconvenience but it does the basic job of a jailbreak well enough.
You can download the following tools needed for the jailbreak below, while the steps are simple to follow and are the same as any other tethered jailbreak you may have done before.
