Today is the day of jailbreaking tools. With the news of release of C-Dev reporter by Chronic Dev Team which will send crash reports to Chronic Dev Team servers (instead of Apple’s) so they can find exploits, now that news has been followed up by the news of yet another jailbreaking tool. It’s called Ac1dSn0w and it jailbreaks iOS 5/iOS 5.0.1 tethered on OS X Snow Leopard and Lion.
Although, Ac1dSn0w isn’t really different from established tools like Redsn0w and Sn0wbreeze but it is a promising alternative with its features like remote jailbreaking, custom firmware creation and iRecovery Remote. Also, it is currently available for OS X only.
I’m pleased to announce that we’ve just released Beta 1 of Ac1dSn0w for Mac OS X Lion (should alsowork on Snow Leopard). Ac1dSn0w allows you to jailbreak your iDevice tethered. It also provides features like Tethered Boot, Pwned DFU, and Exit Recovery to get your device out of Recovery Loop.It currently supports iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPod touch 4G and original iPad on iOS 5 and iOS 5.0.1 for tethered jailbreak. Once you go through the steps, your device will be jailbroken tethered, just like redsn0w or sn0wbreeze. iPad 2 and iPhone 4S are NOT supported.
Step 1: Download Ac1dSn0w [Google Docs Link] and launch it.
