Tethered iOS 5 jailbreak out for the iPhone 4, iPad, iPhone 3GS and iPod touch

Tethered iOS 5 jailbreak out for the iPhone 4, iPad, iPhone 3GS and iPod touch
The official iOS 5 release got the tethered jailbreak treatment mere hours after it was out, courtesy of the ubiquitous iPhone Dev Team. It works for iPhone 4, iPad, iPhone 3GS and iPod touch, no Apple A5 chips allowed. 

As for installing untethered jailbreak if eventually one appears, you will have to restore the iOS device to its previous state. As usual, with the tethered solution now you need to connect to a computer with Redsn0w every time you start the iOS device.

If you have applied Ultrasn0w or Gevey SIM for carrier unlock you shouldn't upgrade to the official iOS 5 release through iTunes, but instead cook a custom firmware with Redsn0w using the upgraded baseband. 

Written step-by-step guide you can find in the source link, but here is a video explaining the whole process.

ayephoner, you are so harmless that you can keep being my own personal little peanut gallery. I am so glad you have such a strong infatuation with me. I am almost blushing. Just in case you get some ideas, no I don't swing that way. Good I am so glad that is out of the way! lol Hey PhoneArena.com I got a fan! ayephoner loves me, well in a friendly kind of way, I hope? ayephoner it IS strictly friendly right? lol

wonderful contributions you're making. you can create whatever image you want of me. the one you seem to be drumming up sounds a bit disturbing, but it really doesnt matter to me.

Dude you just can't get enough can you? You talk about contributions but you today have not said anything remotely positive. You just seem to be on my tip for whatever reason! I don't know if I should be flattered or scared! lol Hey I will let you be my fan though. So keep it coming. It’s funny that’s all. If you give me your address I will mail you my autograph. That might make my fan so very happy! What do you say ayephoner?

Why do you seem more and more immature with every post you make? You make Android fanboys look like fools. If you actually want to stand up and give all your support to defend Android, quit being ignorant and do it like you're not 15 and have an education.

Ok I am sorry Boti95. You are right! I will be the bigger MAN & stop. There is no need to subject the other readers to this garbage. You have my humblest apology. I am being serious. I don't want your time on PhoneArena.com to be soiled by me & ayephoner's petty squabble.

your passive aggression yet again conveys your immaturity. and no one is buying your new found concern for readers' experience. you troll article after article. if you really want the PA experience to improve, stop it.
