How To Jailbreak iOS 5 on iPhone 4

September 23, 2011

The iOS 5 has got many good things in store for its users. The iPhone Dev- team released the tethered RedSnOw Jailbreak for iOS 5. As mentioned this method of jailbreaking is a tethered method, so in order to jailbreak your iPhone 5 (or iPod/iPad), you have to first connect it to a computer running RedSnOw and click on the option “Just boot tethered now”  and your iPhone will enter in jailbroken mode. Initially, RedSnOw was only for Mac users but now even the Windows users can use it.

But there are few points that have to be kept in mind before going ahead to jailbreak your iPhone and they are :-

  • This version can be used to jailbreak any of the following – iPod touch 3G, iPod touch 4G, iPad 1, iPone3GS, iPhone 4 GSM and iPhone 4  CDMA.
  • Unlocked carrier devices should NOT attempt to use any of this, since they’ll lose their unlockable baseband if are trying to install iOS 5.
  • As mentioned earlier this is a tethered jailbreak, so in order to jailbreak your iPhone, you need to connect it to a system running RedSnOw.

Steps to Jailbreak iOS 5

Step 1

  • download RedSnOw (Latest Version)
  • download iTunes 10.5 beta (requires Dev Account)
  • download iOS 5 beta (requires Dev Account)

Step 2

  • Restore iOS 5 beta on your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch and keep it connected to your computer via USB.
    ***You can skip this step if you’re already running iOS 5 beta.

Step 3

  • Execute the Redsn0w 0.9.8

Step 4

  • Hit the Browse button and select iOS 5 beta firmware (downloaded in Step 1) RedSn0w will recognize your IPSW file. Then hit Next.

Step 5

  •  In the next steo mark “Install Cydia” has to be  checked and then hit Next.

Step 6

  • Ensure your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch is turned OFF and Plugged in to your computer. Hit Next.

Step 7

  • Now you’ll be instructed to put your iDevice into DFU Mode. Follow the on screen instructions.s.
    1. Hold Down The Power (Corner) button for 3 Seconds
    2. Without releasing the Power button, also hold down the Home (Bottom Center) button for 10 seconds
    3. Without releasing the Home button, release the Power button BUT KEEP holding the Home button for 15 seconds.

Now once you are into DFU mode , your iPhone 4, 3GS, iPad, iPod Touch 4G, 3G will start getting  jailbroken throgh RedSnOw and after few minutes it will get jailbroken tethered on iOS 5.

So go ahead and try it out.
