We had reported the release of the Ac1dsnow tool to Jailbreak iOS 5 and iOS 5.0.1 devices. The tool had to be later removed due to copyright issues and was not available for download and also many users had reported few bugs and unstable performance of this latest tool.
Now the developers have released the Ac1dsn0w Beta 2 which fixes the copyright issue and also brings more stability to the tool.
Ac1dsn0w beta 2 can be used on Mac OS X Lion or Leopard and can be used to apply tethered jailbreak for the following devices :
- iPhone 3GS
- iPhone 4
- iPad 1
- iPod touch (4th Gen)
The procedure to jailbreak a device using this tool remains the same as in the previous version.
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 2 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.
The current version of the tool is not more promising than the Redsn0w or Sn0wbreeze tools which are already available and are much popular. In the next updates the developers have promised new and exciting features like the ability to jailbreak a device remotely.
