Last year in 2011, we got the Untethered Jailbreak for iOS 5.0.1 on iPhone 4, iPod 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod 3 and iPad 1. These all iDevices are equipped with A4 processor that’s why they can be Jailbreaked easily and Tethered Jailbreak for life. Before the Jailbreak of iOS 5.0.1 and after the release of iOS 5.0.1, people were told to stay on iOS 5.0 because there was no way to downgrade back to iOS 5.x. That’s why many of you will/are still on iOS 5.0. Till now there is no Untethered Jailbreak for iOS 5.0 and no words have been said by the hacker about the Untethered Jailbreak to come for iOS 5.o.
Like always, this time also people are still in a great hope for the iOS 5.0 Untethered Jailbreak. Till now there is no hope shown by the Hackers for the iOS 5.0 Untethered Jailbreak and people are still waiting for it.
Today the member of The Chronic-Dev Team, P0sixninja (Joshua Hill) Tweeted that those people waiting on iOS 5.0 should update to iOS 5.0.1. They still got a chance and Unlockers should stay away from this iOS 5.0.1 update. He didn’t mentioned anything about the A5 processor people. Whether they should update or not. This is only for people who own A4 devices.
Everyone should upgrade their devices to 5.0.1 (except unlockers) now while they still have a chance!!!
Those who rely on an unlock should stay away from this update because there is no unlock for the future basebands on iPhone 4. If you are an iPhone 4 user so you should know about the Unlock thing. You must be waiting for the unlock from last 2 years. That’s enough time. There is a temporary solution for the Unlock which is Gevey SIM.
GEVEY Sim came in the market from no where to unlock the iPhone 4 baseband from 2.10.04 till 4.10.01. You can still unlock these basebands.
The new baseband of iPhone 4 on iOS 5.0.1 is 4.11.08 which is not yet Unlockable by GEVEY Sim or Ultrasn0w. So you people should stay away from the update.
Those of you are planning to update to iOS 5.0.1 should update now because Apple can patch the Jailbreak and release iOS 5.0.2 anytime or the iOS 5.1 will be released some time soon. iOS 5.1 is also around the cornet because Apple released iOS 5.1 Beta 2, two weeks back. So we can expect the release of iOS 5.1 really soon.
As per my guess the release would be made this week.
If you are on old baseband and wiling to enjoy the iOS 5.0.1 update, So you can keep the unlock and update o iOS 5.0.1. If you don’t know how to do that, So no need to worry because we got that covered for you. You can see the guide here on how to preserve the baseband and get the Untethered Jailbreak.
Once again don’t forget to save the SHSH Blobs for iOS 5.0.1 because they will help you to g back to iOS 5.0.1 after 5.1 is released.
