    • Blake Cook

      Update to ios 5.0.1 on your iphone 4, then use the latest version of redsn0w to untethered jailbreak it.

    It works like a champ. iPhone 4 jailbreak untethered redsn0w.

    • But what version is it after that tweak? Is it still using iBooks 2.0, or is it using an earlier version? And can you still sync your bookmarks and books through iTunes after? I downloaded the latest version of iBooks on my iPhone 4 untethered JB 5.0.1 through corona 1.5, but I’m reluctant to do anything until I get solid confirmation that it works.

        2) iBooks 2
        3) Yes
        4) Sync your iPhone. Nothing is going to happen. You are going to be good.
