Finally the long awaited iOS 5 had been released hours ago. I had posted an update on that several months back and after iPhone 4S was released last week, the long awaited iOS 5 had finally been released by Apple today. And the iPhone Dev Team took no time in exploiting the new iOS 5 and gave us the JB for it. Well it come with no surprised actually if you are following the updates (like I did). They had already JB iOS 5 GM version which is pre-loaded for iPhone 4S so they just need to tweak a bit before releasing it to the mass after Apple releases iOS 5. You can download Redsn0w and Sn0wbreeze to JB your iDevices now.
I am going to explain here how to JB using Redsn0w 0.9.9b4 for iOS 5 devices. You can download Redsn0w [HERE] and Sn0wbreeze 2.8 beta 8 [HERE]. Note that Redsn0w only support the following iOS 5 devices:
- iPhone 4
- iPhone 3GS
- iPod Touch 3G
- iPod Touch 4G
- iPad 1
Nope, there is no JB available for iPad 2. God bless those who are running on 4.3.3. Since it won't support iPad 2, that goes the same with iPhone 4S. Cause both of this iDevices are running on the new A5 processor. Both Redsn0w and Sn0wbreeze are tethered JB unless you are using 3GS running on an older bootrom which is untethered. I am not gonna go step-by-step with the JB in here. Well unless my friends or readers out there requested it (a bit lazy). There are reports saying their iPhone got stuck on the loading page. This might be cause by the Cydia apps crashing as it's not supported by the new iOS.
Some of you JB owners used AptBackup, PkgBackup or xBackup from Cydia to backup your apps but do take note that not all apps support the new iOS as mentioned earlier. It may crashed on your iDevices in some cases. And even in iTunes, you will need to reinstall all your apps since not apps are supported on the new iOS. Here's a YouTube video showing how to JB using Redsn0w. Enjoy~! And again, please back up your iDevices before you do anything. And the writer won't be taking any responsibility for anything that happens to any reader's iDevices.
