Attenshun iPhone, iPad and iPod users! The wait is over! The iOS 5 untethered jailbreak is now available for iPhone, iPad and iPod using Redsnow. You just need to follow the following steps and enjoy your non-authorised apps right away:
Jailbreaking your iPhone is a glorious process that opens your phone to a brave new world of features and apps. But with iOS 5, the process has only worked with your phone tethered (or semi-tethered) to your computer. Until right now.
I used to jailbreak my iPhone because stock iOS couldn't do the things I wanted it to. But then iOS got better and I stopped. But one thing I desperately miss from my jailbreak days is SBSettings. It's a way to control your iPhone's settings from your home screen. And now you can (kind of) do the same thing with IconSettings. Without jailbreaking.
It's not going to help your battery life issues, but if you want to break free of Apple's checks and balances that prevent you from running any old app on your new phone, you'll be happy to hear that the iPhone Dev-Team is already demonstrating a preliminary jailbreak for the iPhone 4S and iPad 2.
