Untethered Jailbreak on iOS 5.0.1 Achieved, Feel free to update to iOS 5.0.1 – Pod2G

Few days back we had reported about iPod2G, chronic dev team member & iPhone hacker, succeeded in untethered iOS 5.0 jailbreak and we had also posted demo video of untethered jailbreak on iOS 5.0 demo video. However since latest version is iOS 5.0.1 and many users would have accidently updated (though we did said not to update to iOS 5.0 if you want untethered jailbreak) it is fair to assume not all iPhone users would happy to see only iOS 5.0 untethered jailbreak.

The next task for Pod2G was to test untether iOS 5.0 exploit on iOS 5.0.1 and confirm whether it can be untethered jailbreaked or not. Well well well, the real good news is here, Pod2G has today confirmed that ioS 5.0.1 can be untethered jailbreak along with iOS 5.0 and users can free to update to iOS 5.0.1 however if you need unlock too then you must use preserve baseband option before updating to iOS 5.0.1.

Here is tweet from pod2g,

Got an untethered iPhone 4 running iOS 5.0.1. Feel free to update.

and for users who want to unlock on iOS 5.0.1 & 5.0,

Of course, if you want to SIM unlock, don't update using Apple's original FW nor update OTA.

Now that we have got confirmation that untethered jailbreak iOS 5.0.1 & 5.0 is almost ready then be prepared for jailbreak tool release any day.

So guys stay tuned with us and follow us on Facebook and Twitter for iOS 5.0.1 & iOS 5.0 untethered jailbreak.
