How to fix Cydia Issues for iOS 5.0.1 Untethered Jailbreak (Corona and RedSn0w)

in How-to Jailbreak by

Cydia appYesterday, Pod2G and the Chronic Dev Team released a long awaited Untethered Jailbreak for iOS 5.0.1 users:

- Corona 5.0.1 Untether: a simple Cydia tweak allowing you to convert Tethered to Untethered [How-To Guide Here with Video]

- RedSn0w 0.9.10b1: a program [Mac or Windows] used to Jailbreak iOS 5.0.1[How-To Guide Here]

Since then, many have been experiencing problems with Cydia. Many repos have been getting hammered causing them not to load, packages not available, size mismatch issues, timeout errors, and so on. Thanks to @saurik & @planetbeing, RedSn0w and Corona have been updated to resolve this issue.

“The b2 version of redsn0w includes the launchctl-related fix by @planetbeing as mentioned by @saurik here and here. As usual, you can just re-run redsn0w in jailbreak mode over your existing 5.0.1 jailbreak (even a PwnageTool one), making sure to de-select “Install Cydia” if you do. Always be sure to do a controlled “slide to power off” shutdown of your device before running redsn0w.” – Dev-Team Blog

“The launchctl issue also affects you if you used redsn0w to install the 5.0.1 untether. I have built 1.0-3, which can upgrade redsn0w users.” – Saurik

 

 

How to fix launchctl issue:

Corona 5.0.1 Untether: If you converted from Tethered to Untethered using Corona, simply download the updated version 1.0-3 from Cydia.

**UPDATE**

There has been a second update to RedSn0w

The b3 version of redsn0w fixes a problem where re-running redsn0w over an existing jailbreak would cause MobileSubstrate-based apps to stop running until MS was installed again. Now you can re-run the redsn0w jailbreak step without worrying about that (but still remember to de-select the “Install Cydia” option if it’s already installed). – Dev-Team Blog

To fix the bugs and update to the new Mobile Substrate, simply download the following updated version of RedSn0w:

RedSn0w 0.9.10b3 for Windows

RedSn0w 0.9.01b3 for Mac

This also works if you used RedSn0w 0.9.10b1 to Untether Jailbreak.

Corona 5.0.1 1.0-3

Redsn0w 0.9.10b2

- Download RedSn0w 0.9.10b2 [Mac / Windows]
Window users: Run RedSn0w as Administrator
- Hit Jailbreak
- Set iDevice to DFU mode
- If already Jailbroken with RedSn0w 0.9.10b1, UNCHECK “Install Cydia”

- If you are doing a fresh Jailbreak, have “Install Cydia” CHECKED
 -Click “Next”

Window users: Run RedSn0w as Administrator
