sdm_2.0_featured

It’s been a long time coming, and it’s not exactly relevant anymore, but Safari Download Manager 2.0 has finally been released. It’s a pretty big update, and its biggest feature is iOS 5 support. You’ll find the full list of changes below. If you’ve already paid for SDM 1.x, 2.x is a free update. For new users, the current price in Cydia is $5.00. It’s also known that this works just fine on iOS 6.0 beta 1 and 2.

For those tweakers who are interested in what jailbreak tweaks work in iOS 6 beta 1 or not, the below list is a good place to start. The list comes courtesy of an anonymous source, and includes the status of many popular tweaks. Check the list out below. As expected, very few tweaks and packages actually work. Command-line-based packages work fine (obviously), but packages that rely on Icon Support or even Notification Center will ultimately fail.

There’s a lot of information in there that you’ll probably want to read over.

The wait is finally over. For those with iOS devices on iOS 5.1.1, you can finally have an untethered jailbreak, thanks to Absinthe 2.0.1 by the Chronic Dev Team. At this point in time, it works a little differently than before, but it’s still fairly easy to do. It’s only a matter of time ’till it’s added to redsn0w, but if you don’t want to wait, you’ll find the Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux download links below, as well as the jailbreak instructions.

New jailbreaks are always exciting, especially when the people who actually created the jailbreak come together to bring persistent status updates regarding it (yay, @pod2g!). This is the case with tomorrow’s iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak. One huge feature of this upcoming jailbreak is the ability to jailbreak the new iPad in all of its hardware varieties. Continue reading this post for information, tips, and recommendations surrounding this great jailbreak. I recommend reading the entire post before actually doing some of the things that are mentioned.

Untethered iOS 5.1.1 jailbreak to be released this week – Safely update to 5.1.1 now

ios_5.1.1

As noted by both @pod2g and @MuscleNerd, the untethered iOS 5.1.1 jailbreak is just about completed. More information has been released by them, which you’ll find below. Essentially, the jailbreak can happen in one of three ways, similar to the untethered iOS 5.0.1 jailbreak back in January. The jailbreak itself, according to the above jailbreakers, is very similar to the iOS 5.0.1 jailbreak. Because of this, anyone can freely update to iOS 5.1.1. However, if you rely on a software-based carrier unlock, make sure to not update (as usual).

redsn0w 0.9.11 released – Supports downgrading to iOS 5.0.1 (SHSH blobs permitting)

If your iOS device has previously been jailbroken on iOS 5.0.1, but it was “accidentally” updated to iOS 5.1/5.1.1, you can now downgrade it via redsn0w, assuming your SHSH blobs have been backed up. Cydia usually took care of that automatically, but to check, download a copy of TinyUmbrella. You’ll fine the full release notes for this version of redsn0w down below. Also, @pod2g mentioned on Twitter that a stable and clear untethered iOS 5.1 jailbreak is still weeks away.
