Apple just dropped iOS 5 Beta 2, and, of course, one of the first questions that comes to mind is: can we jailbreak it?

The answer came from Dev Team frontman MuscleNerd who confirmed that it is still possible to jailbreak iOS 5 Beta 2 using the latest version of RedSn0w, the same that was released a couple weeks ago to jailbreak iOS 5 Beta 1…

Of course, a lot of things are going to be broken so developers only should take the jailbreak road for iOS 5 Beta 2 so far, but if you like adventures, feel free to go ahead.

In order to jailbreak iOS 5 Beta 2, you will have to use RedSn0w and point it to iOS 5 Beta 1. As usual, you can read our complete step-by-step RedSn0w guide. Note that, for legal reasons, we cannot post links to the beta downloads.

This is still a tethered jailbreak, which means you will have to plug your iPhone in every time you reboot.

Have you done it yet? Let us know by leaving a comment below.

  • I want to update to iOS 5 so bad but i am not a developer and im too afraid to go through other means to get it.

    • I was skeptical too at first then I found and in less then 15 minutes i was running iOs 5 Beta 1 and now Beta . For only 5 dollars you get iOS 5 and great customer support if you run into any problems.

    • I will just wait for the official realease.
      By the way when will the official IOS 5 (no beta) will be coming out.

    @iosappfinder Find some developer to activate the UDID of your device then you can update. Thats how i did it and i was happily enjoying iOS 5 on my iPad

    When i try to jailbreak my ios 5 beta 2 it says the ipsw cant be recognized i have successfully jailbroken beta 1. Help

    • Sean

      You’re supposed to pick the iOS 5 beta 1 firmware, not beta 2 when you browse for it in Redsn0w

  • Max

    For those of you who wonder how to get a UDID and be registered as a developer, I tried registermybeta;com …They are very fast and friendly, my iPad is now registered and activated 😀
    Hope this helps 😉
    Have a nice weekend
