iPad iOS 5 Beta 4 Jailbreak using Redsnow

Redshow has just got a minor update and is now fully compatible with the just released iOS 5 Beta 4. For those who do not know, Redsnow / Redsn0w is an easy to use program. However this jailbreak is tethered in nature, meaning you will have to jailbreak it again after you do a reboot of your iPad. Follow these instructions carefully.


Download the iOS 5 Beta 4 from the torrent sites. Just search for them as we cannot provide the links here for legal reasons. If you are a developer, you can download it directly from Apple. Download iTunes 10.5 beta (again on torrents) and redsnow from the link given at the bottom of this post. Start redsnow and browse for the iOS 5 Beta 4 you just downloaded.

Now, turn the iPad off, but leave it connected to the computer. Now you will be asked to put it into DFU mode. For that, hold the power and home buttons for 10 seconds. Then while keeping the home button pressed, leave the power button for another 10 seconds. The screen will go blank which is a confirmation that the iPad is in DFU mode.

It will then do the magic and jailbreak your iPad. Note – This jailbreak is not compatible with iPad 2.
