Jailbreaking iOS 5.1.1 With RedSn0w [TUTORIAL]
On the other hand, if you have a device that is currently jailbreakable on iOS 5.1, you can use the latest version of RedSn0w to perform a tethered jailbreak iOS 5.1.1 with a few easy steps.
Following video would guide you to the process to jailbreak your device and we will explain the steps also:
Now we move ahead with explaining the procedure for those who are not able to watch the video:
To jailbreak your iDevice, you will need your 5.1 firmware in it. This is because currently RedSn0w does not recognize iOS 5.1.1. This is for A4 devices only. This procedure has been tried and tested. But even then, you are doing this at your own risk and The Apple Bites would not be responsible if anything goes wrong with your iDevice. This procedure has been tested with RedSn0w 0.9.11b, not with RedSn0w 0.9.11b1. Thus, you are free to make your decision on whether you really want to do it or not.
STEP 1 – Download the latest version of RedSn0w.
STEP 2 – Connect your device to your Mac. Place your device into Device Firmware Upgrade (DFU) mode, and run RedSn0w.
STEP 3 – Go to Extras > Select IPSW > and point to your iOS 5.1 firmware for this device.
STEP 4 – Once RedSn0w successfully identifies the 5.1 firmware, go back to the main page of RedSn0w and click Jailbreak.
STEP 5 – Once it identifies the build, click Next button where it asks you to install Cydia.
STEP 6 – Cydia will be installed, and your device will reboot. Upon reboot, place the device back into DFU mode.
STEP 7 – Now you can perform a tethered boot via RedSn0w by going back to the Extras page and clicking Just Boot.
STEP 8 – Your device will reboot, and you will have a usable Cydia icon on your Home screen.
We want to remind our readers that this is a tethered iOS 5.1.1 jailbreak. Once RedSn0w is updated for iOS 5.1.1 you will no longer have to follow Step 3. You should also remember that this procedure is only for iOS 5.1 jailbreakable devices. It would NOT work with the iPad 2, the iPhone 4S, or the new iPad.
