Jailbreak iOS 5 on the iPhone4S and iPad2

Salam & Hello everyone!

I'm sure millions of people are getting excited about jailbreaking their iDevices on iPhone4S and iPad2 after waiting for so long. Here's a few steps that you might need to know before jailbreaking your device.

  1. Do backup your iDevices before jailbreak on iTunes. It's always better safe than sorry.
  2. You need to unable your lock passcode before jailbreak.
  3. For Macintosh jailbreak tutorial, you can follow this link: http://www.redmondpie.com/jailbreak-5.0.1-ios-untethered-iphone-4s-ipad-2-using-absinthe-how-to-video-tutorial/

Here's the video for you to watch on how to jailbreak iPhone4S and iPad2:



Cydia on iPhone4S


It's jailbroken!!!

What do you need to install on Cydia?

Like usual (refer to my old post how to add sources) , you need the same sources of repo:
  1. http://cydia.hackulo.us/
  2. http://cydia.xsellize.com/
  3. http://repo.benm.at/
What are the packages (please tap search button) that you need to install in Cydia by using those repos:
  1. Activator
  2. AppSync for iOS 5.0+
  3. Frash - Flash for iOS
  4. Hands-Free Control (for Siri on iPhone4S)
  5. iFile
  6. Installous 4
  7. OmniStat for Notification Centre
  8. Repo Icons
  9. Springtomize 2 - iOS 5+
Of course, different people will have different things to put on their iDevices. These are what I usually do. Too much tweaks may slow down your iDevices.

Do google or watch YouTube on how those packages function on your iDevices.

Activator Setting

Here's my personal setting for Activator. Hey, it works great for me!
Go to Setting and scroll down for Activator.




Tap anywhere



Scroll down until you see Slide Gesture & Tap Screen Bottom


Then set it to Activate Switcher


Next is to set up the gesture you can do on Status Bar
Scroll down until you see Status Bar
Set it for Double Tap, Swipe Right & Swipe Left


Double Tap for Compose Tweet 
(if you have Twitter account and like to tweet much on Twitter)


Swipe Left for Sleep button



Swipe Right for Home button

Last but not least, don't ever forget to save your SHSH using TinyUmbrella. It's very important in case you accidentally update your iOS firmware and need to downgrade the iOS firmware.

Let me know what did you do on iPad2 on comment section below. :)

Happy jailbreaking everybody!


p/s: Do pray for my surgery exam this thursday & my Medical Pro exam on June 2012. Thank you very much. Gotta go and study!
