5.1 on horizon. All 4s owners get to 5.0.1 asap

Author: BigBoss  //  Category: News

Apple is due to release 5.1 soon. When that happens, they will stop signing 5.0.1. This means you will only be able to restore to 5.1. 5.1 breaks the upcoming jailbreak. If you are currently a 4s owner or an ipad 2 owner, you will want to get your device to 5.0.1 ASAP. This way when the jailbreak is released, you will be able to use it. If you do not restore to 5.0.1 now, in a few days when 5.1 is out, you may never be able to get from 5.0 to 5.0.1 and only option will be to wait again.

    I just tapped on the OTA update of 5.0.1, didn’t “restore”. I should be good right?

  2. SamAndSam Says:

    Yes. Over the air updating is fine. As long as you’re on 5.0.1 you’re ok.

  3. ethan021 Says:

    What if we use TinyUmbrella? Then can we still restore back to 5.0.1 if were on 5.1?

  4. Mark Says:

    I can restore to 5.0 with the stitch method right now. I’m anxious to test restores to 5.0.1 using this method once 5.1 is out. If we can restore to 5.0 we can probably restore to 5.0.1 as well.

  5. Prince Says:

    Not if you own a 4s or and iPad 2. iPhone 4 and the rest should be OK.

    I am on 5.01 on my 4S, but must I do something with those shsh blobs or whatever they’re called? Or am I okay as is?

  7. test12 Says:

    No. You can’t downgrade to 5.x firmwares, independently if you are using a new or older device.

  9. Mes Says:

    Must iPad2-WiFi owners upgrade to 5.0.1? WiFi only versions have fewer restrictions, but does this apply to 5.0.1?

  10. Coco Says:

    Can 1.0.13 be unlocked after 5.0.1 update?

  11. Asfarf Says:


  12. Lordkain Says:

    Download by preserving base band

  13. Khalid Says:

    Abo raein

  14. Coco Says:

    I tried to update 5.0.1 when running tinyumbrella and it doesn’t work. It is error when it try to update in iTunes. I had did that before on my iPhone 4 and it works but not 4S.

  15. Coco Says:

    Do I need to preserve the baseband or the future UltraSn0W will works for 1.0.13?

  16. ShanBall Says:

    I’m in the same boat – any suggestions?
    iPad2 on 4.33 JB from ole jailbreakme. Hadn’t updated yet waiting for a stable iPad2 5.0x release no?

    Will, at least get the current update downloaded I imagine.

  17. matheus Says:

    I have an Iphone 4 at 4.3.2 , what should I do?
    it isn’t jailbroken yet, what would be the best way to do it? sorry if i’m been to stupid, but i just don’t know a lot about those things…

  18. matheus Says:

    and i forgot to say the baseband, it is 4.10.01

  19. Anonymous Says:

    You shoul create a coustom iOS 5.0.1 with the final redsn0w and the new one that you cooked will be named NO BB
    Means no baseband
    Than you enter Dfu mode and on iTunes shift and restore with NO BB iOS 5.0.1 .
    And you have ios 5.0.1 firmware with your baseband

  22. Mes Says:

    If you need or want an unlock (either by ultrasn0w or ??) always preserve your baseband unless specifically stated it’s ok to update the baseband.

    I was on jb 4.3 with ipad 2 3g. i updated it to 5.0.1 as you told me. now cydia is gone and my cydia apps too. how can i put cydia on it again? sorry about my english i am from russia.

  24. aqsaa Says:

    You won’t be able to install Cydia and jailbreaked apps since your jailbreak is gone by upgrading. All what you need to do is have some patience and wait for pod2g to release the new A5 jailbreak 5.0.1 for iPad2 and 4S

  25. Kbrezzy Says:

    I just jail broke my iPod with cydia but it’s not letting me get the free apps ……do I have to get a app for it or something …….if I do what is the name of the app I have to get?

  26. Skipster Says:

    So the choice is jb now and lose all Curia apps until a new jb is available after Apple releases 5.1, or sit tight and just wait for a full jb is available for 5.1?

  27. aqsaa Says:

    Yep! I’ve done exactly the same I’ve upgraded my iPad2 4.3.3 to 5.0.1 to make sure I don’t miss the train in case 5.1 comes out before the new JB release

  28. Will Says:

    Google “how add installous”

  29. Thunderbyte Says:

    Yes you should, as this might be the only 5.XX version for a long time with a working JB. And there are a number of good reasons for iOS 5.

  30. Thunderbyte Says:

    Do you need an Unlock or not. If not, Redsn0w already supported a A4 JB for weeks now.

  31. 好的 Says:


  32. matheus Says:

    i do want to unlock it

  33. doug Says:

    so a 3gs on 5.0.1 should be ok? or do i need to do something to protect all this? i’m pretty much a newbie but learning quick. thanks

  34. Newman Says:

    What is the point of jailbreaking then in jailbreaking.
