How to Perform Untethered Jailbreak of iPhone 4, 3GS, iPad 1 and iPod Touch on iOS 5.0.1 [Windows]


The wait is finally over and iPhone Dev-Team has released the untether jailbreak solution for iPhone 4, 3GS, iPad 1 and iPod Touch. In this article we will explain how to perform untethered jailbreak of iPhone 4, 3GS, iPad 1 and iPod Touch on 5.0.1 using RedSnow for Windows. The Mac version of this tutorial is here.

If you have already jailbroken your iOS 5.0.1 firmware using a tethered method, you can upgrade to the untethered jailbreak using Corona Unether jailbreak tweak.

The procedure described in this article will force you to upgrade your baseband potentially ruining your chances for an unlock. If you want to jailbreak iOS 5.0.1 but want to preserve your baseband, you should follow a different tutorial provided here.

If you want to jailbreak a lower firmware version you can find the appropriate tutorial here.

How to Perform Untethered Jailbreak of iPhone 4, 3GS, iPad 1 and iPod Touch on iOS 5.0.1 [Windows]

Step One

Create a folder on your desktop and name it as “Pwnage”. You would need to put a couple of things in this folder.

Download the latest version of RedSn0w from here and place it in the Pwnage folder. Similarly, download iOS 5.0.1 firmware from the links provided below and place it in the Pwnage folder as well. If you are already on iOS 5.0.1 you do not have to download and place iOS 5.0.1 in the Pwnage folder.

Double click the the RedSn0w zip file to extract it.

  • Connect your iPhone to the computer and launch iTunes.
  • Select your iPhone from the list of devices on the left.
  • Hold down Option and click the Restore button.
  • We prefer Restore it does not waste any space on your iPhone.

iTunes will now update your iPhone to the new firmware. This step will take some time so you need to be patient.

Step Three
Launch the RedSn0w application from the RedSn0w folder that we extracted earlier. Windows 7 users may prefer running as an administrator in Windows Vista compatibility mode. In order to do this you would have to right click on the executable and select Properties from the contextual menu.

Step Four
Once RedSn0w opens up, a window would be displayed. Click the Jailbreak button.
