iOS 5.0.1 Untethered Jailbreak For iPhone, iPad And iPod Touch

It is already possible to jailbreak iOS 5.0.1 tethered using redsn0w on Windows and Mac. What about an iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch?

At the moment, the state of iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak is that this latest firmware, currently only available for developers (not quite), can be jailbroken tethered as well as semi-untethered. What is a semi-untethered jailbreak? Read on below to find out more.

Basically, a semi-untethered jailbreak eliminates the need to boot your device tethered every time it runs out of battery or needs a reboot. Though there is a drawback to it. If the device reboots in semi-untethered state, you will not be able to use Cydia, any jailbreak tweaks or apps or the native Mail app. Regardless of that, you’ll be able to use your device for making calls and sending texts, if its an iPhone, as well for web browsing through mobile Safari. All Cydia and jailbreak functions will be restored once you properly boot your device in tethered mode using a computer. While this may not be a full iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak, it does somewhat bridge the gap between a tethered and untethered jailbreak. Semi-untethered jailbreak solution is particularly good for those who own iPhones as losing phone connectivity on the road due to a reboot can really be a big pain in the sitter.

To get this iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak of sorts, you will first need to jailbreak your device. If you’re still not on iOS 5.0.1, first download iOS 5.0.1 IPSW and install it

After jailbreak has been applied, launch Cydia and add new repository: semitethered jailbreak | iPhone News, Apps, BigBoss, Guides & Jailbreaking. Once that’s installed, search for SemiTether package and download it.

As far as a full iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak is concerned, the developers are working on an untethered jailbreak solution that will also be compatible with the iPhone 4S and iPad 2. We’ll keep you posted about that. If you face any problems with this iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak of sorts, do leave a comment down below and we will help you out
