Tethered Jailbreak for iOS 5 on iPhone 4, 3gs, iPad and iTouch with RedSn0w

Those amazing iOS hackers have done it again!  iOS 5 has only been out a few weeks, but there is already a tethered jailbreak for all but the very latest hardware supported by iOS 5.  That’s right, your iPhone 3gs, iPhone 4, iPad, and recent models of the iPod Touch can run a jailbroken iOS 5.  I expect soon we’ll see the iPhone 4s supported too.  What’s more, there are already a jailbreak for the still-in-beta iOS 5.0.1.

If you are ready to dive in yourself, it’s best to go to the source and download the Windows or Mac versions of redsn0w 0.9.9b7.

Almost Here, an Easy iPod Touch 2G Jailbreak

Good news!  I finally do a post about progress on an 2nd gen iPod Touch jailbreak, and the Dev Team anounces another big step forward.

The iPod Touch 2G is now another member of the “pwned for life” family. It has a fatal flaw in its bootrom that means you will always be able to pwn these devices no matter what firmware updates come along. This is the full, untethered jailbreak, something that iPod Touch 2G users have not had before today.

It’ll be a little bit before this is packaged for easy installation

RedSn0w: An iPod Touch Jailbreak Allready in Progress

This is old news at this point, but for anyone with an iPod Touch who missed it, there is now a jailbreak for it called “redsn0w.

This is definitely a work in progress.  “Caleb Mingle” has done the hard work of compiling a redsn0w FAQ.  It looks like it’s a bit out of date in spots, but it covers a lot of important ground.
