Untethered iOS 5.0.1 jailbreak lands on all iOS devices except for the iPhone 4S and iPad 2

An untethered jailbreak has arrived for all iOS devices running on pre-A5 hardware - this excludes the newest iPhone 4S and iPad 2, but all other devices can enjoy an absolutely free iOS 5.0.1. It’s all courtesy of iOS hacker pod2g and is now released in redsn0w 0.9.10 and PwnageTool, and it comes as a Cydia package as well.
Currently, the hacker is looking for a way to introduce this jailbreak to the latest iPhone 4S and iPad 2, so keep your fingers crossed for that.
When attempting to jailbreak your device don’t forget that you might also need to unlock the baseband as well, and proceed with caution, especially if you’re new to the jailbreaking community. Hit the source link for all the tiny details and a way to thank pod2g for his efforts, and let us know how the jailbreak went in the comments below.

Finally it's untethered! But would a tethered jb hinder the performance of the iPhone? I just don't like how most all "cool" cydia apps (like multiflow) cannot function on the new ios! I think I might go back to the old ios until us iPhone 4 users can have a fully functional Siri!

I'm going to do this for two reasons and none of them have to do with Apple. One, I want my phone to think it's on wifi when it's really on 3G. AT&T locked down the iPhone and watching YouTube is terrible. The other is to tether. I shouldn't have to pay extra to tether my unlimited plan. The web on the phone shows up the same as web on my computer. f**k you AT&T... Also...for those who are weary about jailbreaking, it's actually quite easy. Making a lot of modifications can definitely slow your iPhone down. But a tweak here and there isn't bad at all.

Just used this on my iPhone 4 and it worked perfect, no problems during the actual Jailbreaking, however it is really slow when loading sources to Cydia and the iBooks app comes up with a few errors. I know theres a fix for the iBooks app out there but seeing as how I never really use it, I'm not all that bothered. But excellent Untethered Jailbreak!!
