Jailbreak 5.1 Tutorial iPhone 4,3Gs,iPod Touch 4,3 & iPad

This post will walk you through the simple steps required to Jailbreak iOS 5.1 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. Hit “Jailbreak” and enter DFU mode by following these easy 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 20 seconds (even after it skips to the next screen! YOU MUST COUNT TO 20 ON YOUR OWN)

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

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

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

6. Open Redsn0w and go to “Extras”

7. Hit “Just boot” and enter DFU mode again by following the instructions in step 2

You are now Jailbroken on iOS 5.1!

NOTE: you WILL need to follow steps 6 and 7 every time you need to reboot your iDevice!

IMPORTANT: Do you need to use your iPhone on another carrier? If so, you need to Unlock it! 


Redsn0w 0.9.11b4 for Mac
Redsn0w 0.9.11b4 for Windows

  • Thjohno

    i had trouble downloading redsnow at first too. all it is, is click on link that says “Redsnow o.910b8b for windows” (or mac). once you click on this, 2 “download” icons appear one orange and one green. do not click on them! they are ads! wait about 5 seconds and underneath those download icons, the real ink will appear! hope this helps

    Make the damn link to download more obvious please!!!!!!  Is the purpose of this page to advertise or is it to offer a link to download Redsnow?  FFS!  I hate it when the ACTUAL link is super hard to find due to the [DOWNLOAD] links to other websites and advertisements…

    Btw for those wondering where the hell the link actually is, like i was: its at the bottom a little above “Related Posts”  ctrl + f then type “Redsn0w” makes it easier.

  • Realbigfish104

    My itunes keeps popping up when I try to put in DFU mode

    • FaulkedUp

      Plug your iDevice into the computer, wait for iTunes to pop up, then close it. Then begin the DFU process.

      You can also change your iTunes setting so when you plug your iDevice into your computer, iTunes will not pop up.

      Not quite sure how to do it of my hand, but Google it if you’d like :)

      Hope this helped!-FaulkedUp

  • damien

    it says it doesnt recognize my device when i try to put it in DFU mode, what do i do?

    • FaulkedUp

      If your iDevice currently running iOS 5.1? If not, make sure it is.

      If it’s an iPhone 4S, iPad 2, iPod Touch 1st Generation, iPod Touch 2nd Generation, iPhone 1st Generation or iPhone 2nd Generation, it will NOT work.

      If you meet all those, and it’s still not working; I recommend Googling it. If you can’t find a solution, I’m sure iCUiD (iCrackUriDevice) will have one somewhere on his YouTube channel.

      Good luck!


  • Blablabla

    Do i have to connect my phone to the computer everytime i on it so it won’t crash?

    • FaulkedUp

      No. Only when your iPhone is off. Whether it’s because it ran out of battery, or simple because you powered it off, then it will have to be connected to your computer, ran with RedSn0w, and use the “Boot only” option.

      Note that Re-Springing your iDevice will NOT require a boot.

      Hope this helped!

  • Dineshanth

    Is it tethered or untethered ………..?????

    • FaulkedUp

      Tethered. Watch the video next time ;)

  • Wawyvilla

    This is tethered because it says “NOTE: you WILL need to follow steps 6 and 7 every time you need to reboot your iDevice!”

  • Mickey Christie

    every thing is done even cydia is also working but as soon as i switch off and start again my iphone cydia is not working pls guide me 

  • Deleon Alyanna30

    I have successfully jailbroken my iPhone 4 (5.1) but when I install an .IPA file, it always says that it has failed to install.

    • FaulkedUp

      That is not the jailbreak’s fault. Sometimes faulty IPA’s are posted on Installous and are either broken, or didn’t work to start off with.

      Try another link.

      Hope this helped!

  • Esantos1027

    help me i jailbreaked my ipod already so does that mean i just go to app store and download any game even though it has price i would get it for free? anyone answer please

    • Keith7384

      no it is not free you have to go into cydia and you will have to go online and find the url address that will let you download an app from cydia where you get paid apps from the app store for free; but i am warning you this app is illegal and it buys the apps for free through itunes which has your credit card number

    • FaulkedUp

      NO! Don’t do that! :P You need to get an app from Cydia called “Installous”. Google how to get Installous for your iDevice and you’ll be on your way to a lifetime of free apps! You know, until Apple released a new update and you install it :PHope this helped!

    • Apgordon

      No it doesn’t..I worked on it for 3 hours and it said it wasn’t made for this device. So if you have the 4s and 5.1 it doesn’t work.

    I really hate 5.1 coz i cant download any tweaks or anything. it says its a wrong device thing…. plz help if you know what i shall do<3!

  • Delsol1387

    What happens if I already have the 5.0.1 jailbreak. Should I first download and install the 5.1 release and then the redsnow jailbreak or I just use the redsnow directly? Help please.

  • Mortenpetters1

    The redsnow program crashes at the end there you hit “Just Boot” and everything is stuck. 

  • jailbreaklover

    I really like jailbreaking but hate tethered ones. This jailbreak worked once for me, but hasn’t worked since. It stops working at the “end of the exploiting with limera1n” and shows the apple logo like it’s rebooting instead of just the blank light up screen. And then it just turns on and nothing is there. Please explain if you can.

    • Kiss my ass

      and hold home then it will be in restore mode open itunes and ur set

    how do i update a jailbroken iphone 4

  • Shaneguitarpro

    Ok, so I downloaded the new version inadvertently today.  I lost my old Jailbreak setup, now when I try to do this it always comes up “Iphone is in recovery mode” looses all my info in the Itunes device and basically requires me to “restore” phone.  Any ideas?

    • Brandon

      Maybe restore it all the way through did you do that

  • Cornkob6
