Good news for iOS 5.0.1 jailbreakers eagerly anticipating EasyRa1n untethered Jailbreak and Unlock iPhone 4/3Gs iOS 5.0.1 has been released. The infamous EasyRa1n.com Team has just updated their EasyRa1n to jailbreak and unlock iPhone ios 5.0.1 , iPod Touch and iPad 1 untethered on iOS 5.0.1, and is available for download. The updated EasyRa1n 0.9 for both Windows and Mac OS X can perform unlock and untethered jailbreak on iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad 1, iPod Touch 4G and iPod Touch 3G (all A4 devices) running iOS 5.0.1.
More Details on the official website www.EasyRa1n.com
It has been nearly eight weeks since the first declaration by easyra1n that he had found a bug that he believed could provide an untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.0.1. We find ourselves exactly fifty days down the line, and what I imagine has been a lot of sleepless nights for the developers involved, but we now officially have the release of an unlock and untethered jailbreak iPhone 4/3Gs iOS 5.0.1.
On December 27nd, they have announced via official blog that would be passing all of his work and details across to the researchers at the team partly to allow him to concentrate on progressing the development of an A5 jailbreak, and partly because he believed that the Team could integrate and package all of his work into a distributable jailbreak. It seems that his instincts were correct as only five days after that decision was made, we are seeing a release of a jailbreak for A4 devices on iOS 5.0.1 which has been implemented by both the EasyRa1n Teams.
The iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak and unlock contains the exact same set of files that they have provided to the Team, and can be distributed as either a download via Cydia by searching for a package named ‘EasyRa1n’, for users who are already jailbroken tethered, or through a bundle for users who have running stock iOS and have been waiting for this untether. At the time of writing, it is worth noting that this jailbreak currently only supports iOS 5.0.1 with the tweeting out that 5.0 will follow soon after a number of small bugs have been eradicated and more testing has been carried out. It has also released some advice to A4 and A5 users advising not to update their devices to iOS 5.0.2 or 5.1 when released as this would cut their chance of a future jailbreak.
