Untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.0.1 was recently made available by pod2g and the Dev-Team, though the jailbreak is only for none-A5 idevices which means that those who got a new iPad 2 and iPhone 4S this holiday season, needs to wait for the jailbreak for your A5-based iDevices that I bet is just around the corner.
I have not tried it on my new iPhone 4S and iPad 2, since Yugatech posted that the jailbreak has a minor issue with that will wipeout all your apps except the newstand. Though some commenters are successful in jailbreaking their device, I guess it’s good to have that RESTORE feature on iTunes, incase of emergency. You can find the complete instructions on how to jailbreak your device running iOS 5.0.1 here.
