How to jailbreak iOS 5.1 with Redsn0w 0.9.10b6

iOS 5.1 has finally dropped, and for the most part we totally recommend staying away from the update if you care anything about your jailbreak, as does the iPhone Dev Team.

That being said, for those with older A4 devices, it is possible to enjoy a tethered jailbreak on iOS 5.1 and still downgrade back to previous firmwares if you have your SHSH blobs for those firmwares.

With A5 devices like the iPad 2, and the iPhone 4S, it is impossible at the moment to downgrade to any older iOS 5.x firmware, even if you have your SHSH blobs saved. So don't upgrade to 5.1, especially if you care about your iPhone 4S jailbreak.

If you have an iPhone 4, iPod touch, iPhone 3GS, or original iPad, then check inside for a tutorial on how to perform a tethered jailbreak on iOS 5.1...

If you've been paying attention to the jailbreak scene lately, then you've heard the warnings about preparing for Apple's next counter move against jailbreakers. The question is this: have you heeded it?

Potential Jailbreakers Should Update to iOS 5.0.1 Before It’s Too Late!

It's a busy and exciting time for the jailbreak community. In the last couple of weeks we've seen the iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak for A4-based devices go live in the form of RedSn0w, PwnageTool, and The Chronic Dev Team's Corona tool. Moments ago we announced that the security expert known as pod2g expects to drop the untethered jailbreak for iPhone 4S and iPad 2 users next week.

Now is the time to update to Apple's latest firmware, iOS 5.0.1. Even if you rely on an UltraSn0w unlock, you should update as soon as possible before it's too late to get the untethered jailbreak on 5.0.1.

How to Save iOS 5 SHSH Blobs and Create Custom Firmware to Downgrade iOS 5.x Using iFaith

As we told you yesterday, iFaith — the Windows based tool that allows you to manage SHSH blobs on all devices sans the iPhone 4S — has been updated with the ability to save iOS 5.x blobs, and create custom firmware that you can use to downgrade your iOS 5 device.

It works very similar to RedSn0w's stitching feature, except the big difference here is that it encompasses Apple's APTicket and features iOS 5 compatibility.
