How To Jailbreak iPhone 4S And iPad 2 With Redsn0w [Guide]
Couple of days ago iPhone-Dev team released an updated version of their redsn0w jailbreaking tool silently. Redsn0w 0.9.10b7 and b8 are both capable of jailbreaking iPhone 4S and iPad 2 untethered on iOS 5.0 (iPhone 4S only) and iOS 5.0.1. Most people have already jailbroken their iPhone 4S and iPad using Absinthe jailbreaking tool which was released in January earlier this year. iPhone-Dev team also released a command line jailbreaking tool but it was little too complicated for some people. But if you’re still kicking iOS 5.0 or iOS 5.0.1 on your iPhone 4S or iPad 2 you can jailbreak it untethered using redsn0w 0.9.10b7 or b8. This jailbreak is based on Pod2G’s Corona 5.0.1 untethered which was developed by Dream Jailbreak team.
The process is going to be really simple because you don’t need to switch your iPhone 4S or iPad 2 on and off again and again or put them in DFU mode because this is a userland untethered jailbreak. So let’s start
