When RedSn0w 0.9.12b1 was released, people were happy because this jailbreak was compatible with almost iOS 5.1.1 device. RedSn0w 0.9.12b1 compatible even with A5 devices like the iPad 2, the new iPad, and the iPhone 4S.
The only requirement for A5 devices is that you use the non-DFU method when using RedSn0w. RedSn0w also includes support for the older DFU-based (DFU stands for Device Firmware Upgrade) limera1n method as well. However, that is for A4 devices and below only. In this tutorial, we will show you how you can jailbreak your device using the universal non-DFU method that works with all devices.
This is the simpler of the two methods included with RedSn0w, and the iPhone Dev Team is recommending unless your device happens to contain a lot of media. You are doing this at your own risk. The Apple Bites will not be responsible for any unwanted or unexpected results. However, this is a tried and tested method and does work.

Now we explain you the procedure step-by-step.
You should start with a clean install on your compatible iOS 5.1.1 device. All devices running on iOS 5.1.1 (except Apple TV 3) are compatible with the untethered jailbreak. If you want to jailbreak the Apple TV 2, use the latest version Seas0nPass.
STEP 1 – First connect your iOS 5.1.1 device to your computer.
STEP 2 – Download RedSn0w 0.9.12b1 and run it.
STEP 3 – Click jailbreak. Wait patiently until the device restores, then resprings. The Cydia logo should appear on your Home screen, moments later.
STEP 4 – Run Cydia and let it initialize for the first time. Now your device is jailbroken untethered on iOS 5.1.1.
