Just few moments ago we had reported about C-Dev Reporter, a tool of mass exploitation which enables iOS device users send device crash reports directly to Chronic Dev Team Servers. Now we have received another report of a new tool Ac1dSn0w Beta by a Unix hacker – in the form of an update sent out from his Twitter account.
The tool Ac1dSn0w Beta, is particularly not such different from the available tools like Redsn0w and Sn0wbreeze apart from some promising features like remote jailbreaking, custom firmware creation and iRecovery Remote. The tool is currently available for OS X devices only.
I’m pleased to announce that we’ve just released Beta 1 of Ac1dSn0w for Mac OS X Lion (should also work on Snow Leopard). Ac1dSn0w allows you to jailbreak your iDevice tethered. It also provides features like Tethered Boot, Pwned DFU, and Exit Recovery to get your device out of Recovery Loop.
The Jailbreak this tool offers is currently Tethered, currently supports iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPod touch 4G and original iPad on iOS 5 and iOS 5.0.1 for tethered jailbreak and NOT iPhone 4S or iPad 2.
How To Jailbreak iOS 5 / 5.0.1 On iPhone 4, 3GS, iPad And iPod touch 4G Using Ac1dSn0w Beta 1 :
Step 1 : Download Ac1dsn0w Beta from here and Launch it.
Step 2 : Connect your iOS device to your Mac using USB Connector.
Step 3 : Switch off your iOS device.
Step 4 : In Ac1dsn0w click on Show Assistant, follow on-screen instructions to enter DFU Mode.
Step 5 : Once you enter the DFU Mode simply click on Jailbreak and let the tool Jailbreak your device.
Step 6 : Your iOS device will reboot again.
Step 7 : Put your device again in DFU mode and click on Tethered Boot from Ac1dSn0w to jailbreak tethered on iOS 5 or iOS 5.0.1.
That’s it, if you have followed all the above steps correctly you have successfully applied Tethered Jailbreak to your iOS 5 device.
The Jailbreak is only Tethered but however you can also install SemiTether tweak which will allow you to use basic features when you reboot your iOS device and do not have any Mac near you which has Ac1dsn0w Beta installed. To know more about SemiTether click here.
