Springboard crash attributed to Winterboard seems to have been fixed. Winterboard is now up and running without any glitches. Thanks Jay for the fix :)

I still don't see the point in releasing this jailbreak especially since one can't use Winterboard.

Keep in mind that some of the app developer needs to update their apps to work with ios5. When u click in an app, it will note whether the app has been verified to work with the iOS you're currently on. Also keep in mind that and dependent apps required by the app you are installing would all need to be verified to work with IOS5. Or else you will experience crashes.

what if I used sn0wbreeze to preserve my bandwidth. Can I use this version of redsn0w to jailbreak?
DazexONE - October 18, 2011 at 6:18pm
Not sure what you mean by "preserving bandwidth" but if you are looking to preserve your baseband, you can use RedSn0w 0.9.9b5 or later to do so. Simply click on the Extras button first and create a custom IPSW file. Point it to the iOS5 IPSW file for your phone and it will create a No_BB_version of that file that RedSn0w will use to upgrade your iPhone without upgrading your baseband. To be certain, those are the steps I would do.

For me this update did not work.. I Have 3 iphone 4 and 1 3gs The new updated redsnow is unable to re-jailbreak any of these. I have the signal dropping problem on my 3gs but simply disabling location services seem to help. But so far I have been unsuccessful with this update..

I have not bought an iPhone 4S yet I've waiting for untethered jailbreak.. Still using Iphone4 on 4.3.3 .. I'm not buying one until the untethered Jailbreak is released . Even my 14 yr daughter doesn't want one until there will be an untethered jailbreak.. I think Apple will sell even more iPhone if there is a jailbreak? So just wondering when is going to be an Untethered available? Thanks DEV TEAM for your help and efforts Really I appreciated

you need to boot tethered, then Cidya will show up
DazexONE - October 18, 2011 at 1:22pm
You forgot the final step. You need to boot tethered. Watch this video for step by step of the process, including the final boot tethered step to allow Cydia to work properly:

Also, please write if it is tethered or untethered, most of the people want to know that. This is TETHERED jailbreak. Thanks a lot !

Does this mean I can use my GPS again on my 3GS?
Chilli - October 18, 2011 at 10:45am
I guess no - some users had gsm problems network searching all the time only a fix for that -_-

Does this work with gevey SIM ?
N3RVE - October 18, 2011 at 12:39pm
Provided you have one of the gevey compatible basebands, you can preserve the baseband and upgrade to iOS5 then use Gevey to unlock.

Works on iPhone 4 ? 4.3.3 , update to iOS 5 , and jailbreak ?
DazexONE - October 18, 2011 at 1:24pm
Yes, it works just fine. I upgraded from iPhone 4 running 4.3.3 to iOS 5. It's a tethered jailbreak, but that's no big deal
dancin_Smurf - October 18, 2011 at 1:25pm
Yes it will work but you must first use redsnow to create a custom ipsw, 1 that preserves your baseband...
