For all those users who do not have that much technical know how about jailbreak or iOS, RedsnOw is a very good tool as the process is very simple and easy.
RedsnOw 0.9.9b1 requires an .IPSW file to be provided for applying the Jailbreak. For now users can use the iOS 5 Beta 7 firmware for the jailbreak as iOS 5 is not available for public yet.
How To Jailbreak Your iOS 5 GM iPhone 4, 3GS, iPad And iPod Touch :
Step 2: Click On Extras and click on Select IPSW and select the iOS 5 Beta 7 firmware to Jailbreak your iOS 5 GM.
Step 3: Click on Back and then click on Jailbreak option.
Step 4 : Click on Install Cydia and follow the on-screen instructions to boot into the DFU mode. By doing this the RedsnOw will now apply Geohot’s limera1n exploit to tether-jailbreak to you iOS 5 GM device.
Thats it you can now explore the Extras option which also has the Just Boot option. Now whenever you want to boot into the jailbreak stage just click in Extras and Just Boot by keeping your device connected to the PC or Mac.
Jailbreak is however not authorized by Apple and hence by doing this you can void the warranty of your device. However you can restore your device using iTunes and you can revert back easily to any version recognized by Apple. The possibilities becomes enormous once you Jailbreak your device as Cydia is the home of all good things.
Note : With iOS 5 being released on October 12th we expect an untethered Jailbreak to be available within days of the release. The current jailbreak is tethered you can either wait for the untethered or head right away with the tethered jailbreak right now.
