How to do untethered jailbreak of ipad 1 and 2 on ios 5.01

A day after Christmas, iOs users were given a gift in the form of an untethered jailbreak for ios5 devices.  Sadly, this did not yet include A5 devices which meant no jailbreak yet for iphone 4s, and also none yet for ipad 2.

If you’re wondering where do i download the firmware for ios 5 5.01 ipsw for ipad to update and restore my apple device?

Look no further, we’ve compiled it here in one link.

Here are the official download links to Ipad iOS 5.0.1 ipsw firmware:

Download redsnow here: Redsn0w 0.9.10b1 (Windows/Mac)

Download the latest Itunes here:  iTunes 10.5.2

NOW WE’RE READY! Part of the step by step instruction below is from inspiredgeek.com

Step 1: Download the ipad 5.01 firmware above, and run it.  , you can shift-click (PC) or option-click (Mac) theRestore or Update buttons in iTunes. A file dialog will open and let you choose the downloadedipsw-file.  Browse to your downloaded ios5 file, and click it.

Step 2: Your Ipad 1 should update to iOs 5.01 normally, after it boots to the springboard (ipad desktop), and Itunes says you’re done, proceed to the next step.

Step 3: Run RedSn0w application from the folder where it was extracted earlier.
