After more than a month of wait since the release of the iOS 5, the Untethred jailbreak was released just few days ago by the Chronic Dev Team and as expected thousand of iDevice users went ahead with the Untethered Jailbreak. While the process went flawless for few, many users had reported their device getting stuck in the Safe Mode.
The bug actually was that with the Redsn0w tool being used for overwriting a previous jailbreak the, MobileSubstrate – a key element of most of the the better Cydia tweaks and apps – kept crashing.
The Dev Team blog post :
The b3 version of redsn0w fixes a problem where re-running redsn0w over an existing jailbreak would cause MobileSubstrate-based apps to stop running until MS was installed again. Now you can re-run the redsn0w jailbreak step without worrying about that (but still remember to de-select the “Install Cydia” option if it’s already installed).
We had earlier also reported about Redsn0w 0.9.10b2 which fixes the launchctl error and now with this update we can expect the Untethered Jailbreak to be pleasant experience for all. Also if Redsn0w is unable to detect your devices firmware version you will have to select it manually your device’s 5.0.1 IPSW by navigating to Extras > Select IPSW in Redsn0w’s menu.
