Special Thanks to Kimlo for the simplified text tutorial

Video Tutorial

Text Tutorial by Kimlo
Can confirm this worked for me.

Here's a good set of instructions.

PREPERATION STEPS - Highly recommended you do these first.

Launch iTunes with iPhone/iPad plugged in and make sure it completes a backup of your device.
When the backup is 100% complete, quit iTunes, unplug your device, replug your device then follow the instructions below.

Doing that first will make for a much quicker process.


Completely new guide for noobs. I just found a way to do it on my iPad 2 [Wifi only] on iOS 5.0.1..
1) Download the file above in step 3, then extract the folder to your Downloads. (Start Menu, your name, then on the left, downloads.)
2) There should now be a folder called: "cinject_0.4.3"
3) Open up CMD and type this (Without "" quotes..): "cd downloads"
4) Then, do: "cd cinject_0.4.3"
5) After so, type this command into cmd.. "cinject.exe -i payloads/jailbreak.mobileconfig"
6) On your device, click on install, and when prompted to type in a password, just click next, with no password in.
7) After so, type this command: "cinject.exe -j payloads"
8) Just wait a little bit. ( Don't freak out, or jizz ;) )
9) Now after a few minutes from step 8, now type this command: "cinject.exe -w"
10) On your device, after doing step 9, toggle the "VPN" switch on in the settings, in about a few seconds after, it should say error.
11) Wait, then it should restart. Cydia is now installed, and your device is now free!

Worked on my iPad 2 5.0.1 fine.
Trying on my 5.0.1 iPhone 4S.

It's been at Creating backup for ages but I will assume it's all going well. Will update with what happens.

Its strongly recommended to restore and then do this.

I have windows XP.

When I follow your steps:
- I put the CLI tool in C:\Documents and Settings\MyUsername\My Documents\Downloads
- I open cmd and type in "cd downloads" it says "the system cannot find the path specified"

Any idea on what I might be doing wrong? :confused:

Thanks for posting the tutorial :)

Thanks...if I do a restore and set up as a new phone, will I lose my Safari bookmarks? If so, is there a way to make sure they are saved?

7) After so, type this command: "cinject.exe -j payloads"
When I type in the cinject.exe -j payloads I get:

Finding slide...
Failed
Error

Any ideas?

i'm having the same problem on 5.0..and don't want to do a restore since i want to keep it at 5.0 for a future unlock if there is one..guess i'll wait for the GUI to be released.

after the payload command this is what happens...

Creating backup...
427 files backed up
Adding custom com.apple.ipsec.plist to backup
Restoring...
recv: Bad file descriptor
FATAL.<__LINE__>: Assertion Failed <1266>: got == sizeof<size>
1266



No idea what error means... Any help?

when you open command prompt what path does it open in?

You have to manually navigate into the folder by using cd command

I downloaded the package into my user/download folder, made a backup in itunes, and followed the walkthrough. Everything is working perfectly! Took me all of 3-4 minutes total.

Finally jailbroken (my first iPhone too) :D
