Well, as we reported that iPhone-Dev team may release iOS 5.0 jailbreak tethered today, guess what they just did. redsn0w 0.9.8b1 has been to jailbreak iOS 5.0, this jailbreak is tethered for now because i0n1c’s untethered exploit was patched in iOS 5.0 b1.
In release notes iPhone-Dev team said :
WWDC 2011 is winding down to a close, and developers of jailbroken apps for Cydia are probably itching to get started on all the iOS 5 goodness. It seems like a good time to release the tethered redsn0w jailbreak for iOS 5.
Redsn0w 0.9.8b1 will support following devices :
- iPod touch 3G
- iPod touch 4G
- iPad 1
- iPhone4 (GSM)
- iPhone4 (CDMA)
iPhone-Dev team also made it clear that this jailbreak is only meant for developers only, and it will not hacktivate iOS 5.ob1 they said:
THIS JAILBREAK IS INTENDED ONLY FOR DEVELOPERS OF JAILBROKEN APPS! There are just too many broken components (Apple’s official apps, 3rd-party App Store apps, Cydia apps, MobileSubstrate apps, etc) for this to be useful to anyone but those truly looking to fix bugs in their iOS 5 apps. (Seriously!) jailbroken
THIS REDSN0W WILL NOT HACTIVATE 5.0b1! You need to be an iOS developer with a registered UDID to get past all the new activation screens. PLEASE DON’T PIRATE APPLE SOFTWARE! Only registered devs with Macs can develop iOS applications, and only those people will have legitimate access to the beta IPSWs
Warning: If you’re using a carrier unlock, don’t use Redsn0w 0.9.8b1 , or the default iOS 5 firmware, it will break your unlock.
