If you want to jailbreak your iphone running version 5.0.1 then you have come to the right place.
All you need to do is the following:

  1. Download redsn0w here (redsn0w_win_0.9.10b1) or (
  2. Turn off your phone once attached to the computer via the usb cable.
  3. Close any programs that may be trying to connect to your iPhone e.g iTunes or Media Monkey etc.
  4. Extract the contents of the download file (redsn0w_win_0.9.10b1) to a new folder.
  5. Run “redsn0w.exe”
  6. Follow the onscreen instructions

Once the jailbreak has been complete do the following to add extra sources so you can download extra stuff like installous the jailbreak app store.

  1. Goto the Cydia app icon on the iPhone.
  2. Goto sources
  3. Add a source (Top right hand button I think “edit” or a “+”)
  4. Enter the source e.g:
  5. Once added do a search
  6. Search for “installous”
  7. Install “installous”
  8. Then run the “installous” app from the icon on the iPhone.
  9. Then search for almost any app you want and install


Just remember dont update the iPhone when you connect it to iTunes as it normally disables the jailbreak and you then need to see if they have released a jailbreak for the next version. If there is then you can re jailbreak it. If there isnt one for your version then youll have to wait until one is released which normally is a few weeks or months.

means you do not need to jail break the iPhone everytime it turns off or reboots.

means you need to jailbreak it everytime you reboot or turn the phone off or when it occasionally crashes.

Extra Sources for the Cydia app:
I think if you add more sources it allows you to find more apps and games etc to download.
