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)

In this How To guide from iJailbreak.com 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.
