Today I want to show you how to jailbreak your iPad 2 or iPad 1 using RedSn0w 0.9.10b8b on Mac and Windows. All you have to do is to follow my steps. But first you must check compatibility of your iOS to untethered and semi-untethered jailbreak.
Untethered and Semi-untethered iOS Compatibility
- iOS 5.1 for iPad 1G – Semi-Untethered
- iOS 5.0.1 for iPad 2G, iPad 1G – Untethered

Jailbreak iPad 2, iPad 1 Using RedSn0w
Step 1. Get RedSnow:
Download RedSn0w 0.9.10b8b for Mac
Download RedSn0w 0.9.10b8b for Win
Step 2. When you download RedSn0w, start it by double clicking on on Mac. On Windows just extract the tool by right clicking on redsn0w .zip file:
and after extracting choose Redsn0w .exe file and Run as administrator using right click.
Step 3. Click Jailbreak button.
Step 4. Enter the DFU mode. If you don’t know how to do that then use this link for more instructions.
Step 5. When you enter the DFU mode RedSn0w will prepare your iPad to jailbreak.
Step 6. Choose Install Cydia and click Next.
Step 7. Jailbreaking process have just began.
Step 8. After jailbreaking process your iPad will reboot and that will be the end for untethered jailbreak. To finish semi-untethered jailbreak perform these two steps:
Step 9. In case you jailbreak your iPad semi-untethered you’ll need to connect it to your Mac or pc every time your iPad loses ability to restore all functions. As you have not yet utilized the Semi-Untethered patch though, your iPad is formally jailbroken tethered, meaning it’s not going to actually reboot without first re-running RedSn0w. Consequently to reboot your iPad in a functional and jailbroken condition you’ll need to start RedSn0w again, click the Extras then click the Just boot and you will just need to put your iPad into DFU mode once again.
Step 10. As soon as your iPad is functional go to Cydia => Manage => Sources => Edit => Add and add this repo:
Look for SemiTether Cydia package and install it.
Step 11. Restart your iPad.
After restarting you can be sure that you have just jailbroken your iPad 2 or iPad 1 running iOS 5.1, iOS 5.0.1, iOS 5.0 and can enjoy it.
