It sure is a busy day today within the jailbreak community. There have been tons of news concerning the jailbreak community thrown our way. One of the most prominent news that was brought into our attention today is the release of a new jailbreak tool called Ac1dsn0w by the Pwn Dev Team. Aside from the new interface, as of now this jailbreak tool doesn't bring something new to the table but it promises a few new features for future updates. Today we are going to provide a tutorial on how to jailbreak iOS 5 and iOS 5.0.1 using Ac1dsn0w Beta 1.
NOTE: iPhone Dev Team frontman MuscleNerd has confirmed that this jailbreak tool on its current form contains some codes that are deemed to infringe copyright laws. So we will not be providing the download links for the tool due to legal reasons. We are only providing the tutorial for the sake of imparting information. So proceed at your own risk. And also keep in mind that this is a very early beta so it is bound to have bugs. If you want a more reliable jailbreak, use Redsn0w or Sn0wbreeze.
