For everyone that’s already waiting for the iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak, now you can use Cydia is saving the iOS 5.0.1 SHSH blobs for the untethered jailbreak. Just two days ago, we reported here on this blog that an iphone hacker with support pod2G of Chronic Dev team has confirmed it that the iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak is completed and he also demonstrated it live in a video posted on his blog with an iphone 4 device running the iOS 5.0.1 – you can access the video here.
You can now make use of Cydia to save SHSH blobs for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch running iOS 5.0.1 software version.
Since we now know that the Chronic Dev team will be releasing the iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak, it means that Apple will definitely release a new iOS firmware immediately after the release of the iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak.

Also, in case you’ve upgraded your iPod Touch, iPad or the iPhone to iOS 5.0.1, then you should now save SHSH Blobs of iOS 5.0.1 so that you can just downgrade your device back to older firmware in case you needed to in future.
