An untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.0.1 has finally become available. That means you’ll no longer have to connect your precious Apple-made gadget to a computer for each boot.
Unfortunately though, this doesn’t work on iDevices powered by the A5 processor. So if you have an iPhone 4S or an iPad 2, you’ll have to wait some more before you’ll be able to load up an untethered jailbreak on your gadget.
But if you have any other iOS5-compatible iDevice (iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad, iPod touch 4th generation, or iPod touch 3rd generation), you’re in luck. To read more about the jailbreak, head over to pod2g’s blog (that’s the developer who made all of this possible). For instructions, the iPhone Dev-Team has you covered.
If you already have a tethered jailbreak on your iDevice, you can simply untether it by running an app called Corona (which you can find in Cydia). And if you like your iDevice jailbroken, you probably shouldn’t update to iOS 5.0.2 when that becomes available, since it will “cut your jailbreak possibilities”, pod2g has warned in a tweet.
