Previously, we posted about Apple iOS 5.01 Jailbreak Untethered Demo Video on iPhone by Pod2g showing us he already manage to jailbreak for A4 processors devices. What does this means by A4 devices? A4 devices are referring to the processor running on iPhone 4, iPhone 4 (CDMA), iPhone 3GS, iPad 1, iPod Touch 4G & iPod Touch 3G. Newer device from Apple such as iPhone 4S or iPad 2 are using A5 processors.


Step 1

Create a folder on your desktop called Pwnage

Download the latest version of RedSn0w from here and place it in the Pwnage folder. Likewise, download the 5.0.1 firmware from here and place it in the Pwnage folder. (Note: you do not need to download the 5.0.1 firmware if you are already on iOS 5.0.1)

Extract the RedSn0w zip file by double clicking it.

Step 2

(You can skip this step if iOS 5 is already installed on your device)
Connect your iPhone to the computer and launch iTunes.

Select your iPhone from the list of devices on the left. Now hold down Shift and click the Restore button. Restore is preferred as it won’t create any wasted space on your iPhone.

Navigate to the Pwnage folder on your desktop and select the 5.0 firmware ipsw. Click the Choose button to continue.

iTunes will now update your iPhone to the new firmware.

Step 3

Launch the redsn0w application from the redsn0w folder we extracted earlier.

**Windows 7 users may want to try running the redsn0w executable mode as an administrator in Windows Vista compatibility. You can do this by right clicking the executable and selecting Properties from the contextual menu.

Step 4

Once RedSn0w opens click the Jailbreak button

Step 5

Plug your iPhone into the computer and make sure its OFF then click the Next button

Step 6

RedSn0w will now guide you through the steps to get into DFU mode. You can find more help with DFU mode here

Hold down both the Home button and the Power button for 10 seconds.

Release the Power button and continue holding the Home button until RedSn0w detects the device.

Step 7

Your iPhone will now reboot

Step 8

RedSn0w will now prepare the jailbreak data.

Step 9

Select Cydia from the list of options and click Next.

Step 10

Your iPhone will now be rebooted again and RedSn0w will begin uploading the new RAM Disk and Kernel.

Step 11

Once this is complete you will be notified that RedSn0w is done. When your iPhone finishes rebooting (5 minutes or so) it will be jailbroken with Cydia on the SpringBoard.
