Fix iOS 5.0.1 Untethered Jailbreak Bugs With New Redsn0w 0.9.10b3

Update #3: The b3 version of redsn0w fixes a problem where re-running redsn0w over an existing jailbreak would cause MobileSubstrate-based apps to stop running until MS was installed again.  Now you can re-run the redsn0w jailbreak step without worrying about that (but still remember to de-select the "Install Cydia" option if it's already installed).
TIP: If auto-detection fails and redsn0w tells you no identifying data was found, you can always pre-select theappropriate 5.0.1 IPSW using "Extras->Select IPSW".

Here are the redsn0w download links:

Siri legal migration tool Spire, iOS 5.0.1 SHSH backup landing Cydia

It is a good day today
The perfect addition to iOS 5.0.1 JB (non-A5 equipment, ie non-iPhone 4S and iPad 2)
Also brought two good news for a Cydia
① Spire
Since the advent of Siri accompanied iPhone 4S together, the whole jailbreak community are waiting for it to be ported to other older devices.Before we have seen more in non-4S devices running Siri's film, but has not been released until the final tool.
Recently the famous JAILBREAK developer Ryan Petrich and Chpwn released a tool that:
Spire .
It can be iPhone 4S all of Siri's functionality has been ported to escape
iPhone 4/iPhone 3GS/iPod Touch 3 / 4 / 1 on the iPad.
Spire has now landed Cydia, users can download free of charge , the size is 100MB. Developer said that due to file size reasons, we recommend users to use Wi-Fi network to download, rather than flow data.
Prior to Pre-Siri also has several tools to publish, but due to copyright issues, these tools are not legitimate. Chpwn said: "Spire using the new approach to obtain certification to the Siri file, it does not exist after copyright issues that plague us."
(Previously the news that there is a new version of iOS 5.0.1 iPhone 4S Siri open the message authentication data. Details: )
Of course, on such transplants, users should note that: through their own servers and get iPhone 4S authorization .
Chpwn explained as follows: "But the Spire is not able to completely solve this problem, Apple still requires users to be able to have authorization to use Siri, so the authorization message from the iPhone 4S is still necessary. To insert such a message, Spire allows Users enter their proxy address.
Siri by using a proxy server SiriProxy, users can use the iPhone 4S to set a proxy server, the authentication information must be easy to enter."
Steven Troughton-Smith said: "JB the iPhone 4S is perfect before, this is the best Siri transplant program. IPhone 4S is JB, we can avoid the problem of the proxy server." 
In short, now if a friend is to use iPhone 4S, you can find him Certification
Then you can install the normal use of the Spire Oh ~
1  Open the Cydia search Spire, install 
2.   waiting for restart
3  set -> Spire-> server (Proxy Host) to play:

Run the command python (python for windows, recommended python 3.2.2)

(2)  production of private certificate
(windows under cmd, cd to a directory, such as the D drive generated in the D drive, the certificate is ready, directly available. later available for download)

 to 4S connect WiFi, DNS is set to receive data in the computer ip (if the 4S and the computer in a WIFI network, you can use the internal network ip, otherwise you must use the public network ip, use your own router's port mapping or direct 443 DMZ). Make sure step 2 to do the certificate has been installed.

 Use Applidium tool, make sure to do step 2 has been placed Applidium server.passless.key and tools folder.
Run the command ruby siriServer.rb

redsn0w 0.9.10b2 is Out

Update #2: The b2 version of redsn0w includes the launchctl-related fix by @planetbeing as mentioned by @saurik here and here.  As usual, you can just re-run redsn0w in jailbreak mode over your existing 5.0.1 jailbreak (even a PwnageTool one), making sure to de-select "Install Cydia" if you do.  Always be sure to do a controlled "slide to power off" shutdown of your device before running redsn0w.

Untethered holidays [DIRECTLY FROM iPhone-Dev Team Blog]

@pod2g has created a terrific gift for iOS fans — an untethered 5.0.1 jailbreak for non-A5 devices! 

Many of you have already been following @pod2g’s blog where he’s been keeping everyone up to date on his progress. And so you know that he recently decided to push the button on a release for all devices except the new iPhone4S and iPad2. @pod2g’s untether involves two separate exploits and a few other “tricks” — and since he’s taken the @comex approach of doing nearly everything himself, you know his plate has been full these past few months!

A few days ago, @pod2g gave the untether to both the iPhone devteam and the chronic devteam. We’ve put it into redsn0w 0.9.10 and PwnageTool, and the chronic devteam put it into a Cydia package (the same set of exploits is in all three).

Here are the basic steps for how to get it:
The untether is for iOS 5.0.1 on iPhone3GS, iPhone4, iPhone4-CDMA, iPad1, iPod touch 3G, iPod touch 4G
If you have one of those devices and are not on 5.0.1 yet, update now! The SHSH window is still open for 5.0.1 If you unlock via ultrasn0w or gevey, make sure you only get to 5.0.1 via a custom IPSW! See the guides at places like if you don’t know how. Once you’re at 5.0.1, use the latest redsn0w 0.9.10 to both jailbreak and untether.
If you’re already at 5.0.1 with a tethered jailbreak, you have two choices: either run redsn0w 0.9.10 over your current jailbreak (deselect “Install Cydia” if you do that), or install the Cydia package prepared by the chronic devteam. The patches are the same regardless of which you choose.

Some of you are using a hybrid 5.0/5.0.1 configuration. If so, do not attempt to install this untether over that setup! You will most likely get into a reboot cycle. Do a sync and fresh restore to 5.0.1 then install the jailbreak + untether.

As mentioned earlier, @pod2g has spent months working on all the exploits and tricks in this untether, and many of you may be wondering how you can send donations. Although the iPhone devteam itself doesn’t take donations, we thought it was appropriate to provide a link at the end of the redsn0w run for you to more easily donate directly to @pod2g if you wish (alternatively, you can go right here). There’s a link in the Cydia package for donating to the chronic devteam for the Cydia version of @pod2g’s untether.

@pod2g is now looking for a way to extend this to A5 devices. Because those devices cannot use geohot’s limera1n exploit to inject the untether, they require exploits above and beyond those used for this release. Keep following pod2g on twitter or his blog for any progress reports!
Here are the redsn0w download links:

redsn0w 0.9.10b1 for OS X
redsn0w 0.9.10b1 for Windows (be sure to run in Administrator mode

Unetethered for iOS 5.0.1 by Pod2g Released [DIRECT LINKS]

Directly from Pod2g's Blog

A4 release

Hello, as expected, the Chronic Dev Team and the iPhone Dev Team have released the A4 untethered for 5.0.1 based on my work.

It is exactly the same set of files, either distributed as a Cydia package for those that are already tethered or a redsn0w bundle for new users.

They both did a great job testing and integrating the payload.

TinyCFW Windows Fix Maximum Heap Size Error {HOW TO }

For those using yesterday's TinyCFW release to downgrade iPad 2 to iOS 4.3.3 and are running into issues with the executable there is a fix you can try below. For me I got the error " jvm could not start-the maximum heap size (-Xms) might be too large or a antivirus is blocking the execution." Since i didn't have a firewall or anti-virus running I knew that wasn't the problem. Below you can find the fix I used:

Start - Control Panel - System - Advanced system settings

Advanced (tab) and click on "Environment Variables"

Under "User variables.." click on "New"

Then add :

For Variable name = _JAVA_OPTIONS
For Variable value = -Xmx1g

For Mac users, you can just use the jar file, be sure to rename the jar file to tinycfw.jar and then run it normally.

Downgrade iPad 2 And iPhone 4 From iOS 5 To iOS 4.3.3 With TinyCFW For Untethered Jailbreak [How-To Tutorial]

TinyCFW is a simple tool I put together for a friend of mine. He has an iPad2 GSM and has his 4.3.3 SHSH but since Apple is no longer signing 4.3.3, it isn't possible to downgrade to 4.3.3 without getting stuck in a 1015 recovery loop.
What TinyCFW is:

  • It will modify an existing ipsw for an ipad2 gsm/cdma or iphone4 gsm/cdma
  • It will create an ipsw that you can use with TinyUmbrella AND iTunes to restore to a version of iOS that you have SHSHs for.
  • It is primarily for iPad2 with a baseband OR iPhone 4.
What TinyCFW is NOT:
  • A jailbreak
  • An unlock
  • A tool to protect your baseband.
  • A tool that will restore your device to any firmware
  • A tool for use with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 3G, iPad, or iPhone 4S
The usage is simple. Start the application (double click on the jar or run the .exe file). You must have java and at least 2.5gb ram. (Yes I know. It's a lot. Get over it. I didn't write this to be massively distributed. I wrote this for a friend and am now just sharing it with everyone). Once the window comes up, click the top button and choose an ipsw for which you have SHSHs for. The app will scan it and tell you the firmware and baseband versions in the ipsw you selected and the firmware and baseband versions that will be in the target ipsw when you click the second button. If you're ready, click 'Save Target IPSW'. This will take a minute or two and when it is finished, you will have a file named:

<your original ipsw name>.bbupdate.ipsw.

You can use this ipsw with iTunes and TinyUmbrella to restore your iPad2 GSM/CDMA back to say 4.3.3 (if you have 4.3.3 SHSH).

This is a VERY initial release. I never intended on it being a massively supported tool. It's just something I used in passing. If it helps you great! This functionality will exist in far more robust form when I finally ever release TinyPwn.
