Redsn0w 0.9.10b6 Tethered Jailbreak for iOS 5.1 Available to Download

Mar 8, 2012 - 36 Comments

Redsn0w 0.9.10b6

The latest version of iOS 5.1 is already jailbroken thanks to the iPhone Dev Team’s newest release of Redsn0w. The jailbreak is tethered however, meaning that each time the iOS device is rebooted it will need to be connected to a computer running redsn0w for boot assistance. iBooks doesn’t yet work either, but an update is expected to resolve that issue shortly. If neither of these two things bother you, grab the jailbreak and enjoy.

Redsn0w 0.9.10b6 works with the following devices running iOS 5.1: iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 CDMA & GSM, iPod touch 2nd, 3rd, & 4th gen, iPad 1. Not supported are any A5 based hardware, including iPhone 4S, iPad 2, and iPad 3.

Download Redsn0w 0.9.10b6

For those jailbreaking from a Windows machine, remember to run Redsn0w in administrator mode in order to work properly.

    Hello, I’ve read on Dev’s web, I mustn’t restore after this jailbreak! However the jailbreak worked fine for me I can’t seem to unlock it to my carrier. I’d like to try to redo the process once more and see but is it safe? (as you can tell I’m a complete amateur) Can I restore again after redsn0w 0.9.10b6?

    I have an Iphone 4 and I’m running IOS 5.1, and I made sure I have the correct version of Redsn0w. For some reason after Redsn0w has me go into DFU mode it starts the jailbreaking process and it gets through the first 2 steps, then says waiting for reboot. Once my Iphone reboots and I look nothing has changed, am I missing something here?

  15. Hi,

    Sadly I’ve updated my iPhone 3GS to iOS 5.1 now it only showing me options to

    select: Language/Country/wifi/network

    But my iPhone was jailbroken (not 100% sure I got it second hand).

    I can’t connect to any wifi as there is nothing like this in Bangladesh(where I’m

    now). The iPhone gives me other options to set my network using iTunes and after

    taking a while iTunes keeps saying: “”there is no sim card installed in the iphone

    you are attempting to activate””

    What to do I even can’t use the phone.

    Please help me

  16. My-phone says:

    When you need to restart your phone, does it have to be on the same computer you used to jailbreak it? Or, if I use my desktop to tether jailbreak my phone, as I travel, can I use my notebook for phone reboots? I have a iPhone 4.

  22. nathan says:

    random thought come across , it was quickly thought up so dont judge but if in a tethered jailbreak u boot from the com to upload files and patch kernal and all and u can get a semi-tether with putting different files on ur iphone to semitether couldnt yall make a package for temp. untether (take a bit longer to boot ik) in the cydia store that has all the files and actions the tethered boot in redsn0w has to be done on your device without computer at reboot , , a while back , i forget exactly how i did it but 5.0 i think it was the first semitether i was messin with my phone a combo of sn0wbreeze redsn0w and messin with files i untethered it actuallyby mistake actually thought i screwed it up at first long story but i eather got really lucky or maybe theres something yall can do there
