How To: Jailbreak The iOS 5.0.1 Firmware Untethered With Corona 5.0.1 Untether Cydia Package

Earlier today we told you that Chronic-Dev released the Corona 5.0.1 Untether Cydia package to Jailbreak the iOS 5.0.1 firmware Untethered. The unique thing about the Corona 5.0.1 Untether Jailbreak is that it is the first Jailbreak based off of simply installing a Cydia package. Now, the reason you would want to use the Corona 5.0.1 Untether Cydia package is if you are currently Jailbroken on the iOS 5.0.1 firmware tethered and do not want to have to use a Jailbreaking tool like RedSn0w o.9.1ob1 or PwnageTool 5.0.1 to Re-Jailbreak your iOS Device. Corona 5.0.1 Untether supports all iOS devices that can run the iOS 5.0.1 firmware, except the iPhone 4S and iPad 2.

Corona 5.0.1 Untether Supports: 

  • iPhone 4 (GSM and CDMA)
  • iPhone 3GS
  • iPod Touch 4G
  • iPod Touch 3G
  • First Generation iPad

In this How To guide from you will learn How To use the Corona 5.0.1 Untether Cydia package to Jailbreak your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad running the iOS 5.0.1 firmware untethered.

Corona 5.0.1 Untether Jailbreak

Step 1) – The first thing you need to do launch Cydia from your SpringBoard (homescreen).

Note: This Corona 5.0.1 Untether How To guide assumes that you are already Jailbroken tethered on the iOS 5.0.1 firmware. If you are not then we suggest using RedSn0w 0.9.10b1 or the PwnageTool 5.0.1. Additionally, ensure you do not have the Semi-Tethered Jailbreak Cydia package installed on your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad. If you do then you will need to uninstall the Semi-Tethered Cydia package before proceeding.

Step 2) – With Cydia up and running you will need to head on over to Cydia’s Search tab and then type in the following phrase into the search field:

Corona 5.0.1 Untether

Note: If any essential updates are available upon launching Cydia you will need to first install these updates before proceeding.

Step 3) – When you see Corona 5.0.1 Untether displayed on the search results click it and then install it to your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad.

Note: If you don’t see Corona 5.0.1 Untether on the search results, go into the Changes tab and refresh your sources.

Step 4) – After the Corona 5.0.1 Untether Cydia package is installed to your iOS device you will need to simply click the Return To Cydia button.

Step 5) – To ensure that this iOS 5.0.1 Untethered Jailbreak worked you will need to power off your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad. Then simply power on your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad and wait for it to reboot itself. If your iOS device reboots into a usable state then this Untethered iOS 5.0.1 Jailbreak worked!

Troubleshooting: If you could not reboot after installing the Corona 5.0.1 Cydia package then you will need to re-boot your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad using a Jailbreaking tool like RedSn0w. Once you reboot your iOS device launch Cydia and go into the Manage tab, followed by the Packages section. From here double check to see if you have BigBoss’s SemiTethered Jailbreak installed; if you do you will need to uninstall it and try reinstalling the Corona 5.0.1 Untether Cydia package. If you still do not get success then we suggest trying another method of Jailbreaking such as using  RedSn0w 0.9.10b1 or PwnageTool 5.0.1.

Congratulations! You have just Jailbroken your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad Untethered on the iOS 5.0.1 firmware using the Corona 5.0.1 Untether Cydia package.

  1. where’s the ipad 2 & 4S untethered?

  2. Subhra1947 says:

    Thanks a lot, It’s working for my iphone 3gs upgraded with ios 5.0.1

  3. I can’t find it

  4. works like a charm! thanks pod2g!

  5. Can you use this on 5.0.0?

  6. what is the source repo link for it?

  7. it’s probably in an already default installed source so you shouldn’t need any additional sources.

  8. it doesnt appear in mine y??????

  9. Nicolaswohlers says:

    Amazing how well it works.. Great job. Thanks!!

  10. Robertsonrichard says:

    I can’t either…Help!

  11. It’s not out yet. Still being worked on according to a billion other articles.

  12. It hasn’t appeared in mine yet either. It’s because it’s a new file that was added to cydia so you would probably have to first upgrade essential packages when prompted to do so.

  13. I think it does, but if it doesn’t why don’t you just upgrade to 5.0.1 using itunes then jailbreak?

  14. Take it easy guys…just be patient eventually cydia will prompt you to upgrade essential package or something like that and then you’ll be able to find it. Just keep opening cydia or something until it asks you that.

  15. If you are on a tethered jailbreak 5.0.1 and you can’t find corona 5.0.1 untether in Cydia. Simply force close cydia, double click your home button until all your apps running in the background appear and close out cydia. Reopen cydia and once it fully loads you should be able to locate it.

  27. Every time I try to install Corona from Cydia I get the same thing. It keeps saying:
    Cannot Comply
    Note: The requested modifications cannot be applied due to required dependencies or conflicts that cannot be automatically found or fixed.


  28. guest_lololol says:

    I was on 5.0.0 tethered, but then I accidently updated to 5.0.1 and now I can’t reboot!
    Don’t know if its either that or the fact that I rebooted after installing corona.

  29. Hosmusic says:

    I have done everything possible and nothing works…
    some1 help???

  36. Turong Baliw says:

    Thanks, got it.  BTW, first things first, as stated above: “If any essential updates are available upon launching Cydia you will need to first install these updates before proceeding”, after this, it will go as smooth as silk

  37. Ramipaykin says:

    I have updated.. and still the Cannot comply error…

  38. Turong Baliw says:

     What application did you use for Jailbreak? Did you use redsn0w 0.9.10b or later? This is also important, I tried using redsn0w_win_0.9.10b5c, but of no success, so I tried this and it worked fine.

  39. Ramipaykin says:

    Well, I tryed this one and all of the versions.. lol,
    0.9.10b6.. only the this one is working fine, but it untethred, and I can’t download from Cydia corona 5.0.1 untethered because of a stupid Cydia error: Cannot Comply blah blah blah..

    As an untethered ipod(4g) after rebooting the device (for installing Installous for example) I can’t open Cydia any more, only after “JUST REBOOT” in the redSnow..

    Loosing hopes =[[

  40. Beast101 says:

     you have to “just Boot” on redsn0w to be able to use cydia
