Now that a method exists for downgrading A5 devices, a greater number of folks will be looking for an easy solution to jailbreak their devices.
While the Absinthe jailbreak tool still works, RedSn0w may be more desirable to you due to its all encompassing nature.
For that reason we've put together a handy guide that shows you how to jailbreak your iPhone 4S and iPad 2 using RedSn0w 0.9.11b1...
A new version of the RedSn0w jailbreak tool was released today, bringing us a nice assortment of new features, and hinting at an even greater things to come...

Check inside for a full rundown of what's new, and what's new to come...
It's a big day for Corona. After being updated this morning to fix the DRM issues in iBooks, Saurik just tweeted that the untether has been updated yet again, this time to resolve problems with the iPhone 4S running iOS 5.
Corona 1.0-8: @sbingner noticed that 1.0-6/7 failed on iPhone 4S 5.0 (the only supported 5.0 build; absinthe's Corona had worked): fixed. :(

If you're having problems with iBooks on your jailbroken device, you can install Corona directly from Cydia. If you've already installed Corona, you can simply update it via Cydia and you should be good to go.
A couple days ago, RedSn0w was updated to fix the iBooks DRM issue where some images wouldn't display properly, or wouldn't even display at all. At the time, we noted that a Corona update shouldn't be too far out.
Saurik just announced on Twitter that Corona has been updated to version 1.0-7 to fix those issues mentioned above...
For those of you wondering whether or not iBooks 2 works on the iPhone or iPod touch, the answer is yes, with a catch.
You can update your current app to iBooks 2.0, but you still cannot download textbooks without an iPad. We also advise jailbreakers to stay away from the latest iBooks update...
If your iPhone is jailbroken on iOS 5.0.1, and you use iBooks, chances are you've encountered the dreaded "Configuration Error".
No worries though, as both RedSn0w and Corona have been updated to remedy the issue.
Inside, we'll show you how to use the Corona package from the Chronic Dev Team to fix the iBooks issue on jailbroken 5.0.1 devices.
Hot off the heels of the Corona iBooks fix, MuscleNerd tweeted that RedSn0w has been updated to 0.9.10b4 to incorporate the fix for Apple's mobile book app.
The good news for current RedSn0w users is that all you have to do is rerun the new version over your existing jailbreak in order to receive the fix.
The release of the Corona untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.0.1 hasn't come with its fair share of problems, which led the Chronic Dev Team to update the tool a couple weeks ago to fix the Launchctl error.
Unfortunately, this update was not enough to fix all the problems inherent to Corona. The main issue that users have been experiencing is with the iBooks app, which would just display an error message at launch. We shared a few workarounds with you to fix this problem, but we knew an official fix was on the way...
Having trouble with iBooks on the latest Corona untether for iOS 5.0.1? Never fear, pod2g has said that an update is coming to resolve issues with iBooks crashing on iOS devices running the Chronic Dev Team's latest jailbreak.
We've already told you how to fix issues with iBooks on iOS 5.0.1, but those of you that are still having trouble after using Corona can look forward to pod2g's upcoming update.
If you own an A4 device, chances are you spent your day jailbreaking. After months of waiting on a proper iOS 5 exploit, both the Chronic and iPhone Dev teams released untethered jailbreaks late last night.
There have been reports, however, of folks having some problems with the new untethers. One issue in particular, a "launchctl" error, has been fairly common. So Saurik has pushed out an update for the untether to fix it...
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...
