Jailbreak iOS 5 Beta 5 Running On iPhone 4, 3GS, iPod Touch 3G, 4G, And iPad 1 Using Redsn0w 0.9.8B5

iOS-5-beta5

iOS 5 beta 5 was released for developers last week, soon after the release people expected a jailbreak and finally it’s here. You can now jailbreak iOS 5 Beta 5 with Redsn0w 0.9.8B5. This jailbreak is tethered for now, which means you will have to connect your iOS device to your computer and boot it in Jailbroken state every time you restart your iOS device.  Redsn0w 0.9.8b5 update took a longer than previous jailbreaks because all hackers including MuscleNerd core member of iPhone-Dev were attending world’s largest hacker’s gathering “DEFCON” in Las Vegas.

Redsn0w 0.9.8b5 release notes :

redsn0w has been updated to 0.9.8b5, adding support for Apple’s new iOS5 beta5 (point it directly at the beta5 IPSW). Please use this only if you’re a jailbreak app developer with a legit Apple dev account, and remember it’s a tethered jailbreak for now!

Redsn0w 0.9.8B5 supports following devices:

  • iPod touch 3G
  • iPod touch 4G
  • iPad 1
  • iPhone3GS
  • iPhone4 (GSM)
  • iPhone4 (CDMA)

Redsn0w uses limera1n exploit to jailbreak your iOS device it’s really important to remember here that iPad 2 is NOT supported by redsn0w 0.9.8b5. Limera1n exploit only works on devices with A4 or lower processor as its a bootrom level exploit. If you’re thinking when is iOS 5 untethered jailbreak coming out ? well it’s not coming out soon, not until iOS 5 final release which is planned this fall. All these beta version are experimental versions of iOS 5 and if developer find any exploit they will be patched before final release. However an immediate Untethered Jailbreak for iOS 5 is also not possible as it’s a really time taking process to find and make use of an exploit.

Redsn0w 0.9.8b5 is really simple to use like always, if you’re familiar with jailbreaking than you won’t be facing any problem during the process.

Remember: You will be needing iTunes 10.5 Beta 5 in order to sync your device and restore your iOS device. You can download iTunes 10.5 Beta 5 from here.

Warning: Redsn0w 0.9.8 b5 won’t jailbreak your iPad 2, the only jailbreak solution for iPad 2 is JailbreakMe 3.0 and it only works on iOS 4.3.3.
