After weeks of anticipation, the iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak is finally here, compliments of pod2g, the Chronic Dev Team, and the Dev Team. As we explained a little earlier today, you currently have two ways to untether.

Depending on your situation, you can either run the latest version of RedSn0w, or if you’re already jailbroken, you can use the Cydia package called Corona Untether 5.0.1 to do the job. The latter is what we’ll focus on in this post…

We realize there isn’t much to Corona Untether 5.0.1. It’s fairly easy and straightforward, but to make things very clear and simple for everyone, we thought we’d have a dedicated post for it.

First and foremost, you should definitely make sure to read our post about the iOS 5.0.1 untether. It has all the details you should know.

Who should use Corona Untether 5.0.1?

Anyone running a tethered jailbreak for iOS 5.0.1 may use this Cydia package to untether. That means that if your device is running iOS 5.0.1, and that you have a tethered jailbreak, then Corona Untether 5.0.1 is for you. Supported devices include the iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4 CDMA, iPad 1, iPod touch 3G, and iPod touch 4G.

How to untether?

Because you’re already running a jailbroken version of iOS 5.0.1, the untether process is going to be fairly easy for you.

Step 1: Launch Cydia and search for Corona Untether 5.0.1.

Step 2: Tap “Install” and let Cydia do the rest of the job for you.

That’s all there is to it. You can now safely reboot your iPhone, iPod, or iPad without the need of an external tool, such as RedSn0w, to boot tethered.

  • hey, tell me plz i have the IOS 5.1 does it work the same on this last one or not !! Help guys !!

  • cydia doesnt let me install corona untether 5.0.1

  • SO.

  • i finally found the up to -date firmware. which as of may 9 2012, with ios 5.0.1 you gotta download:
    open it on your desktop, set your ipod up to itunes, dfu mode and wait for conversion
    2.using the ipod after all install is done -go into cydia and then download the corona file.
    3. in cydia, tap the bottom tab called manage, click on sources, click on big boss, find the Corona Untethered 5.0.1 file and install it….
    OKAY, finally after queing and denying me like 3 times- finally downloads it.
    but this is wehere im confused. you mention that its possible to not show it as being downloaded. but when i install winterboard (like hello the first thing i wanna do is alter the font and change that wifi logo and customize the carrier banner,, its all winterboad stuff!!!!)
    … winterboard installs and says you gotta reboot. So fine, go for it.
    TETHERED OR NOT?>? so i did it untethered… giving Corona the benefit of an okay installation.
    well great, now i cant open either Cydia Or Winterboaard. So
    i gotta go back to tethered boot and do this all over again?
    This is just about rididulous. why is apple so damn difficult. Im not stealing anything im just altering the customization. OFFER WINTERBOARD IF YOU DONT WANT US JB ON YOUR iOS. NOT ALL OF US ARE doing all that other stuff. AND YOU should always let your customer feel the option in knowing that you can customize your electronic device howeer you want. Its being an Artist and having something different.
    NOT ALL IPODS ARE CREATTED EQUAL when you jailbeak and customize. Yea
