iOS 5.0.1 Untethered Jailbreak Advisory

Yesterday, pod2g advised iOS jailbreakers to NOT update to iOS 5.0.1 due to untether exploits being closed in Apple's update. Charlie Miller found exploits in iOS 5 and created an Apple App specifically to showcase the security breach potential. This bug found is supposed to simplify an iOS 5 exploit for jailbreakers looking for an untethered version of the latests jailbreak.

The previously rumored pod2g exploit exists in iOS 5.0.1, but will require more time to develop a package for jailbreak users. MuscleNerd reiterated pod2g's warning in updated to iOS 5.0.1. So updating to iOS 5.0.1 isn't the end of the world, and jailbreak developers are likely to accomodate iOS 5.0.1 since it was released abruptedly today. Here are the download links if you are unable to get your OTA software update to function correctly.

Here are the official download links to iOS 5.0.1:
