iOS 5.0.1 beta 2 has already been pushed to the developers by Apple to fix a couple of issues in the current iOS 5.0 most notably the quick battery draining issue we presume. If you have access to the iOS 5.0.1 or you want to simply jailbreak the existing iOS 5 on your iDevice then you will be happy to know that popular jailbreak tool called Sn0wBreeze has now been updated to the version 2.8b10, and include some notable although minor improvements. Most notable is the support for the iOS 5.0.1 that should be available to the public very soon. It also fixes the iBooks crashing issues as well as fixes the location service issues on the iPhone 3GS. Also removes the beta timer in the iOS 5.0.1. Here is the complete changelog:
- Supports iOS 5.0 (9A334)/5.0.1-b2 (9A404)
- Fixed iBooks sandbox crashing issues (as of 2.8b9).
- Fixed location services issues with iPhone 3GS
users running the iPad baseband (as of 2.8b9).
- Re-added iPad baseband install option to iPhone 3GS.
- Removes UDID requirement/Beta timer in 5.0.1.
- Tethered devices are booted via iBooty which is
extracted to the Desktop after running sn0wbreeze.
iPhone 3GS iPad baseband (06.15.00) users:
- Re-flash the iPad baseband via sn0wbreeze
if you restore(d) to a stock 5.0 firmware.
If you want to jailbreak your iOS device such as iPhone 4/3GS, iPod Touch or iPad you have two options either you can use the Redsn0w 0.9.9b8 or this release of the Sn0wBreeze to jailbreak your device. Although Redsn0w is available on both windows and Mac while Sn0wBreeze is only available on Windows. Also both Redsn0w and Sn0wBreeze allow cooking custom ipsw files that you can restore using the iTunes to preserve the baseband of your iPhone that will allow to unlock the device later using the ultrasn0w tool available for free in Cydia.
Procedure to use the Sn0wBreeze 2.8b10 to jailbreak your iDevice is exactly the same as mentioned earlier in our step-by-step guide: Jailbreak iOS 5 & Preserve Baseband For iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad 1 Using Sn0wbreeze 2.8. Of course, you need to use the iOS 5.0.1 firmware that is currently available to the iOS developers but should be available soon to the general public.
