Recently we had posted on how to Jailbreak your iDevice running on iOS 5.1. The jailbreak now available is tethered but you can later the SemiTether package which will allow you to boot your iOS 5.1 without having the need to connect to a computer having Redsn0w but with the Jailbreak Apps and many functions will not be available. Now the Chronic Dev Team have released the Sn0wbreeze 2.9.2 to jailbreak iOS 5.1 devices.
A present both the tools Redsn0w and Sn0wbreeze provide only tethered jailbreak and that too for A4 devices namely the iPhone 4, 3GS / iPad 1 & iPod Touch. The iPad 2 and the iPhone 4S which have an A5 chip currently cannot be given any Jailbreak due to lack of bootrom level exploit on the A5 chip.
The current Jailbreak for A4 chip may possibly be due to the Geohot’s limera1n exploit. The current tool Sn0wbreeze can jailbreak iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad 1 & iPod Touch. It is available only for Windows while the Redsn0w is available for both Windows and Mac.
