Among other fixes it appears to be one for the bug discovered by Charlie Miller, which allowed execution of unsigned code in App Store apps. iOS 5.0.1 contains improvements and other bug fixes including:

  • Fixes bugs affecting battery life
  • Adds Multitasking Gestures for original iPad
  • Resolves bugs with Documents in the Cloud
  • Improves voice recognition for Australian users using dictation

Jailbreakers and unlockers must stay away from iOS 5.0.1 until further notice. Better stay with iOS 5 because iPhone Dev Team, Chronic Dev Team and Pod2g are already working on iOS 5 untethered jailbreak.

That’s nice. Thank you. I mean for the warning regarding the 5.0.1 update. Now that even the moronest of all morons understands that (I hope), maybe the brains behind all these warnings could tell us if they really think they can come up with an untethered jailbreak before we all die of old age, clinging to our iPhone 18 or 19… In the mean time, there is a plethora of websites making money with ads by posting all these warnings and big statements telling us that some genius said that they have iOS 5 ‘covered’ (that was said on October 12), that every other site saying they can unlock and jailbreak 5.0 are scams, etc… etc… . I know… I know… It’s free, if I don’t like it I can shove it, blah blah blah… These guys have egos bigger than my car, and love to bask in recognition. So spare me the usual shitty moral lesson, and just try to tell us if we’re wasting our time checking these fucking websites of yours. Thank you (again).

iPhone 18 or 19? Don’t be paranoid!!!

We will have the 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak served on our plates just by the time the iPhone 7Gs hits the stores on November 2014, so it’s just a what, easy 3 year wait!!!!

mine is iphone 3GS running iOS5.0 (semi-tethered)

i accidentally installed an unstable or non compatible tweak package from cydia…
so, it crashed and got stuck in a loop for a few times…. and then, because its a semi tethered, it doesn’t boot into safe mode, but boots into semi tethered version of reboot (where some core apps can still be used like sms, calls and others, but no cydia or jailbroken apps can be used) so, i couldnt get myself to use iFile, or open cydia to remove or uninstall the last tweak package that was uncompatible… so, i tried to restore, but instead i encountered the error 3194…. tried everything to resolve this error but nothing works….

i think the only solution that might work is:

-if i get to boot manually from the semi tethered homescreen to safe mode, then, i might have a chance to open cydia and remove the bad tweak…

-2nd, if i get to resolve the error 3194, it might work as well…

-i cant use winSCP because i dont have wifi to connect to my iphone.

-if there’s a way to connect through usb cable from my laptop….

please help… anything will do… as long as i get my iphone to work again… i dont mind restoring as well… i’ll just jailbreak it again after that….. any solution that 100% works please…. anyone…
