Jailbreak 5.0.1 iPhone 4,3Gs,iPod Touch 4,3 & iPad With Redsn0w

This post will walk you through the simple steps required to Jailbreak iOS 5.0.1 and the best part is that thanks to the new Redsn0w, you can be Jailbroken in a matter of minutes!

Steps (for Mac and PC users):

1. Download Redsn0w from the download section below and run it

  • If you’re on Windows Vista or Windows 7 then you should right click Redsn0w and set compatibility to windows XP (service pack 2) and then run it as the administrator

2. Go to “Extras”, hit “Select IPSW”, point it at iOS 5.0.1 and then go back to the main screen (NOTE if you get errors while pointing it at 5.0.1, just point it at the 5.0 IPSW for your device)

3. Hit “Jailbreak” and enter DFU mode by following these steps:

a. Hold down the power button for 3 seconds
b. Continue holding the power button and start holding the home button and continue HOLDING BOTH for 10 seconds
c. Let go of power and continue holding home button for 15-20 seconds

4. Select install Cydia and any other options you want (except “Install custom bundles”)

5. Wait for it to finish and reboot (the video shows how long the process takes)

6. Close out of Redsn0w – this step is VERY important

7. Open Redsn0w, go to “Extras”  hit “Select IPSW” and then point it at iOS 5.0.1 (NOTE if you get errors while pointing it at 5.0.1, just point it at the 5.0 IPSW for your device)

8. While you’re still under the “Extras” page, hit “Just boot” enter DFU mode again by following the instructions in step 3

You are now Jailbroken on iOS 5.0.1!

NOTE: you WILL need to follow steps 7 and 8 every time you need to reboot your iDevice!

    i want only to ask you questions , if I turn my iPad off , I must be jail break again how I can fix that , Please ??!!

    • Pavivirito

      This is a tethered jailbreak meaning you cannot turn the ipad off without you having to reinstall the jailbreak. You want an unteathered jailbreak which is harder to find and get to work. But just search google for one.

  • Shadowtm

    I tried this jailbreak a couple of times and I keep getting the same result, after the jailbreak, it will boot to the apple logo and then the spinning circle, and will stop at the spinning circle and just hang there. I’m originally running iOS 5.0.1, and I am using the 5.0 IPSW to jailbreak. I can’t even get it booted to do a tethered boot. Also, whenever I try and select 5.0.1 it says “uncatagorized build” or something like that, any tips? o ya, iPhone 4.

  • Omar420048

    and i have to restored withthe itunes

    • Samuelimazeki

    • Bigmac12

      ur dumb. this is tethered. now you have to restore you’re iPod.

  • Norwegian Dude

    When I’m tryin’ to dowload themes and stuff, it just says: “Note: Cannot Locate Package”! Whats that all about??

  • Anonymous

    Is it semi-tethered or untethered?

  • Shaneee

    The CDMA approves with redsn0w, but the GSM doesnt. i dont know if theres a difference.. either way, i try to “Just Boot” after I got that whited out cydia, but then it makes my phone freeze. It goes from apple logo, to the loading symbol, then a chime. and repeats itself.

  • WORK!

    Note: Your browser may change the ipsw-file into a zip-file. In that case, just rename it to end in .ipsw and iTunes will accept it.

    I really want to get my phone jailbroken… but everytime I put it in DFU mode, and it goes to jailbreak it… It winds up telling me that the ipsw is wrong. and the one I downloaded for my phone won’t work with it. It says something about a fingerprint not working and I have no idea how to fix it. Can anyone help?

    • Mwatts830

      and also, I downloaded the correct ipsw (the iphone 4 5.0.1) and then saved it to my desktop and everytime it says my ipsw is wrong I highlight that one and try to use it and it says it is not compatible with this version of redsnow. can someone please help me!?!?

      • Sherrick woodside

  • Hanan4ik

    i dont understand if i have the ipsw(700mb ios 5.0.1) i dont need to download the ios 5.0.1 from itunes becuase now i have 4.3.5 

    • Luisjossue

      Well if you are gonna upgrade firmware, you dont really have to download your firmware again from itunes
      Just plug yoyr device to your computer open up itunes press SHIFT and the UPDATE BUTTON from itunes at the same time, chosse the your 5.0.1 and thats it

      Hope it works for you

  • Weiquan_asd

    guys if u want to download the 5.0, it is at the bottom of the list of devices compatible for the jb

  • Marty

    i have watched this 50 times and yet still way to fast for me !! seems so simple but to be honest  your a little to fast for me, shame

  • Ut2729

    Is this an untethered JB?

    • Luisjossue

      no is not

  • niggerfaggot

    guys for those of you getting the unsopprted error, JB follwoing this guide but instead of selecting 5.0.1, select 5.0.0 and then when its done, go to just boot with 5.0.0 still selected. worked for me and im on apple’s 5.0.1.

  • Ars297_92

    It seems to be that almost for sure,if u r on windows,u cant use 5.0.1 ipsw when u have to “select ipsw” in redsnow.However u still need it as of course you first have to RESTORE ur device(not UPDATE) TO 5.0.1.So after restoring,go to redsnow and select ios5.0 ipsw.And then do all the stuffs shown in  the video above.IT WILL WORK.

  • melanie

    what do you mean point to 5.0? where can i find that? do i need to download it? somebody help me pls…

  • Huy Uyen

    i just solved my problem. 
    1.  you hv to download the IPSW 5.0 and point to it instead of 5.0.1.  this is also explained above.
    2.  This was my problem. if you are using Windows 7 or XP, make sure you right click Redsn0w and set compatibility to windows XP (service pack 2) and then run it as the administrator.   this is also explained above.

    good luck

    I also tried custom IPSW option but i get error saying “this verion of redsn0w does not support thi feature”

    Please help :(

    • Itony97

      Download the 5.0.1 firmware from the site given above. MAKE SURE that you have the current redsn0w software (also linked above). It sounds like your redsn0w is out of date :/

  • Prabhat Singh374

    the pineapple logo in not going  i waited for half an hour for that

  • Goodluck

    Too everyone who failed to jailbreak and is getting usb errors and recovery errors. Ya your iPod is toast and can never be fixed ! BEST OF LUCK TO YOU.

    • zeebo6230

      no your lieing. all you have to do is reboot ur idevices with redsnow

    • Itony97

      Dont listen to him! just Restore it. 

    • Yjhgjfghjfghjfghjfghj

      or you can restore it

  • Laurajohnson76

    Hi  I have just done the jailbreak and am now doing the “just Boot”. It has been loading for over 30 minutes now, is this alright or has something gone wrong. I have the iPhone 4. All i see is the apple logo then the timer 

  • NiceguyPD

    • matt776

      If you were smart and not so much on the side of being a dumbass then you would of extracted the IPSW file to the desktop

  • Lol

  • Kyle0522

      • matt776

        You really that fucking stupid to look on the site that he gave you?! I mean its really right on that page! fucking retard

  • Rachel Stewart67

    download ipsw 5.0 NOT 5.0.1 and it works and NO it dont unlock the networks you need to pay for that ( ive not found anything that can do it yet )

  • MW3

    When i try to select IPSW it says that IPSW is not supported for this version of redsnow

  • Naylous111

    i dont get the ipsw part

  • Lucas J

    does this unlock the phone to all networks aswell??

    • matt776

      No! If you think that it did than you must be a retard. You have to pay for that extra service. LMFAO…

  • TheTiger2398

  • Rmcgraw1014

  • Anonymous

    I’m getting my iPhone 4 tomorrow, but would this clear my basebands? and what would happen to my phone if that is the case?

  • Rizh

    nice job
    how can i restart my device without connecting it with redsnow (except semitethered) or not.
    because semitether is not working on my phone.

  • karen reyes

    download the 5.0 i was fine…but i hit other roadbumps..but maybe u wont. Goodluck

  • karen reyes

    So i have the 5.0 IPSW then it prompted me to find out after how many weeks my particular 3gS was released it was the newer one after 41 weeks.
    then as im “jailbreaking” it stops and says i have a usb problem. however before that it simply told me it failed now i just keep getting that error usb
    What to do?
    Thanks =)

    any solutions .. please 

    • Naikdhruv09

      connect yur phone to pc and open redsnow software then select ipsw after that dont close it now see on top just boot it .after that as per instruction do dfu mode . yur iphone will be start

    • Homen09

      u need to switch off your device then open up cydia from your computer and go to extras then select Ipsw then click back and select just boot and your device would go back to normal.
      Also you will need to install something from cydia and its called semitether .
      and you will be able to reboot your device, but ur only aloud to ring people and go on safari and you would need to do the same thing  

    • Leafhunter

      same thing here but i fixed it you gotta recover your ipod

  • David

    I’m also wanting to know if it is safe to jailbreak my White iPod touch 4G, which is already running 5.0.1? Thanks in advance.

  • someone

    could u make a new program that will include ipsw 5.0.1 itself? it’s not working for me

  • SCUD

    hey iCU..is it perfectly safe to jailbreak my 5.0.1 using the 5.0 IPSW..won’t it affect anything?

    • matt776

      The top 5 list of the dumbest questions I have seen on here, this is number 2. You really the dumb asking this!? All it does is just puts it back to firmware 5.0…..Sereiously :/

  • Simeon0814

    hello , i need help with my iphone 3gs , i followed all the instruction using windows and in the course of jailbreaking this notice appeared ( mounting roofs as read-only……ERROR, after 60000 ms !! giving up ..)

  • Butters

    I didnt watch the video but just followed the written instructions and I was at the part of “preparing filesystem”. I accidentally locked my ipod and now when I try to reboot it with redsnow it doesnt boot but just keeps showing the loading circle. Should I restart the “jailbreak and install cydia” option or is there something else to do to fix it? I dont know how you respond but if you cant reply here then email to Butters6227@aim.com

  • Zheid_2000

  • http://twitter.com/Biofryd Nikolaj Jensen

    Hi guys.

    I really hope you can help me. I followed the guides to the letter, pointing to 5.0 instead of 5.0.1, tried just boot several times. But after jailbreak is done, and after doin just boot, my device is stuck with a ‘connect to itunes’ screen, and there is nothing I can do. I have iphone 4 gsm, and downloaded the latest ispw files and redsnow. 
    When trying to ‘just boot’ I get error: unrecognized build ffffffffffffffff70c71ebe7fe944ce
    What am I doin wrong? Any help will be much appreciated

    fucking bullshittttttttttttttttttt IPSW is not suppored by this version of redsnow !!!!!!!!!

  • Sirjuliusarquero

    I downloaded iPhone4,1_5.0.1_9A405_Restore.ipsw from the link that you’ve given. But the iOS that was downloaded to my computer was iPhone3,1_5.0.1_Restore.ipsw, is that normal? When I tried it with the redsnow 0.9.9b8 that I also downloaded from the link you gave, everytime I choose Select IPSW, then choose iPhone3,1_5.0.1_Restore.ipsw, a pop-up box says Unsupported IPSW. That IPSW is not supported by this version of redsnow. What am I doing wrong?

  • Bricden

    Your instructions confuse me.  Can you please explain to the Windows 7 users how to exactly do everything.  You say to run it under a program of windows xp and for a retard computer awarness guy like me.  I have no fucking clue what you mean by that.  Your training will be greatly apprectiated.  I have several other buddies who are doing the same thing with windows 7 and we cant figure this out. 

    • matt776

      Alright, so basically its somewhere around a good 5 step process:
      1. Don’t go fucking getting pissed off at him when he is doing the video on a Mac.
      2. When you get Redsn0w on to your desktop you have to right click it, and then click on the compatability option on the right click menu. Its usally like the 3rd choice down.
      3. After you get the compatability option up then you will go to the Windows Server XP 2 and click it once, then click “Ok” or whatever is at the bottom right corner of the box that popped up.
      4. When you have fixed the compatability that it runs on you then need to go back and right click on to Redsn0w and then click on the “Run as Administrator” option on the menu. Its usually like the first or second one right there.
      5. After you have opened up Redsn0w as an admin and went through the compatability deal then go through the rest of the instructions that he has laid out on here. They are simple and easy to follow.
      I know that he didn’t go into more depth about how to actually run Redsn0w on a Windows 7 PC, and that was something that everyone has seen when they right-clicked on a file/folder/program on their desktop or he just forgot about adding the process on how to do it. If you have anymore questions or problems with Redsn0w or anything else feel free to send me an e-mail. I’ve jailbreaking iDevices for free/cash for a some time now. Hit me up with an e-mail with your problems.
      Email: matt776@live.com
      Hope this helped!
