Untether an Existing Tethered iOS 5.0.1 Jailbreak with Corona

Dec 27, 2011 - 28 Comments

Corona Untether for iOS 5.0.1 A new tool has been released that untethers existing tethered jailbreaks for iOS 5.0.1. This means that if you are using a tethered jailbreak right now, you can download a free package from Cydia to untether your jailbreak and never have to boot with redsn0w assistance again. The package is called Corona and it’s very easy to install.

The current version of Corona untether is compatible with iOS 5.01 on iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod touch 3rd or 4th gen, iPad 1.

How to Convert a Tethered iOS 5.0.1 Jailbreak into Untethered with Corona

Do this from the currently tethered jailbroken device running iOS 5.0.1:

  • Launch the Cydia app and search for “Corona”
  • Tap on “Corona 5.0.1 Untether” and then tap the “Install” button in the upper right corner
  • Reboot the device

The iOS device will now be untethered, able to reboot at will without connecting to a computer.

If for whatever reason you don’t want to use Corona, you can also download the untethered redsn0w and jailbreak iOS 5.0.1 untethered by running the new version over an existing tethered base, but that is more work than necessary. Corona is by far the easiest choice, and unless you plan on performing a clean installation, it’s the way to go.

    Help! untethered and tethered attempts do not work, tried it on both mac and windows. On Mac after it uploads 2nd step it says waiting for reboot and the phone boots normally, on Windows it boots normally during the exploit and checking build. IOS 5 Jailbroke fine when I did a tethered one on it when it was first released. I have tried dozens of times with the same outcome
