Download PwnageTool 5.0.1 For Mac OS X To Jailbreak The iOS 5.0.1 Firmware Untethered

The iPhone Dev-Team have been busy the last few days! They have not only released the RedSn0w 0.9.10b1 to Jailbreak the iOS 5.0.1 firmware Untethered, they have also released a much needed update for the PwnageTool, dubbed PwnageTool 5.0.1. For all of you wondering, PwnageTool 5.0.1 supports all iOS Devices that can run the iOS 5.0.1 firmware, except the iPhone 4S and iPad 2.

PwnageTool 5.0.1 Supports: 

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

In case you have never heard of the PwnageTool before, it is a different way of Jailbreaking your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad Untethered. You see, instead of Jailbreaking directly over the iOS 5.0.1 firmware, PwnageTool 5.0.1 requires you to restore your iOS Device to a custom Pre-Jailbroken firmware. While this may not suite some people because the need to restore, it does allow for advanced customization of the iOS 5.0.1 Untethered Jailbreak.

If you would like to download the PwnageTool 5.0.1 for the Mac OS X operating system (PwnageTool does not support Windows) you can head on over to the iJailbreak Downloads Section, or use the direct download link below:

    updated 5.0.1 ipsw, got into DFU mode, opened iTunes and tried to restore with alt-Restore, but repeatedly got an error 1600, unable to restore with the custom ipsw. iPhone 4 currently at 4.3.5 jailbroken :-(

  • Sk8erboy929

    I have an iPhone 3Gs and am trying to do an untethered jailbreak and unlock on iOS 5.0.1 with Pwnagetool 5.0.1 but when i browse for the 5.0.1 IPSW file it says that it is the wrong file and searches for a 4.1 IPSW. Why isnt it working?

    Download Corona 5.0.1 if that happens from Cydia first.

  • Rishi

    The jailbreak worked on my iPhone 3GS 5.0.1, but Cydia isnt opening up. Is there any way for it to make it work?
