The iPhone Dev-Team has updated RedSn0w to jailbreak the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 on iOS 5.0.1.

Version 0.9.10b7 of redsn0w adds a collection of useful features: It finally implements the corona-A5 jailbreak for iPhone4S and iPad2 devices still at 5.0.1. It can also re-install that jailbreak for those who accidentally uninstalled the untether. When stitching an IPSW, it can now grab your blobs directly from Cydia. It now shows a lot more info about your device (for instance, whether your iPhone3G has the vulnerable baseband boot loader, or whether your iPhone3GS has the old exploitable bootrom. (And the next new feature to be added will be built-in restore support, to provide an alternative to iTunes restores.)

Previously you needed to use Absinthe to jailbreak the iPhone 4S and iPad 2.

You can download the new version of RedSn0w from here.

Re-jailbreak? - April 21, 2012 at 10:14pm
I've been having issues with my current jailbreak, need to re-spring a few times a day. Will this new update fix any issues? Worth re-jailbreaking?

It's funny how people talk so lightly about what Dev Team's have or not to do... as if they were paying for their work. So ungrateful!

Most of them do get paid, they get paid a ton.

@ishu no one is working on unlock for your baseband. No body has ever said they were working on it. Buy a factory unlocked phone. It's sold all over the world.

@Paul they DID say they were working on and unlock for the newer basebands then it died... Then muscle herd said they were working on brute force "NCK" unlock then again died... I confronted him on his twitter then he denied it, then I posted the link of his words on it and I got banned... Hmmm Paul search before you speak!

There is an unlock for your baseband actually. Just do a barrelroll. It really works!
