The iPhone Dev-Team – reliably as per usual – have updated its Redsn0w jailbreak tool, allowing those using the latest iOS 5.1 to set their devices free. It works for all iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices except, of course, the iPhone 4S and the iPad 2. Additionally, as you may already be aware, the jailbreak is tethered, meaning you will need to connect your device to a computer to boot tethered each time it is switched off for whatever reason. How to jailbreak iOS 5.1 using Redsn0w Step 1: Download the latest version of iTunes (10.6) Step 2: Open up iTunes, and back up your device. Step 3: Upgrade your firmware to iOS 5.1. Step 4: Download the latest version of Redsn0w Windows https://sites.google.com/a/iphone-dev.com/files/home/redsn0w_win_0.9.10b6.zip?attredirects=0&d=1 Mac https://sites.google.com/a/iphone-dev.com/files/home/redsn0w_mac_0.9.10b6.zip?attredirects=0&d=1 Step 6: Now we move on to the process where you will need to repeat every time your device is switched off. This is called tethered boot. Launch Redsn0w, select "Extras", then"Just Boot" in order to boot your device tethered.
