iOS 5.1 jailbreak using Sn0wbreeze is now possible. iH8sn0w has released Snowbreeze 2.9.2 to jailbreak iPhone on the latest iOS version 5.1 . The jailbreak is tethered and you require a PC to turn on the phone every time. However you can install Semi-Tether app from Cydia to get partial booting . Redsn0w 0.9.106 can be downloaded for both Mac and Windows OS .
Update : Snowbreeze 2.9.3 is now available for download with more fixes and support for Apple TV 2G users .
Note : Snowbreeze 2.9.2 does not support jailbreak on iPhone 4S and iPad 2 . The reason A5 based devices cannot be jailbroken is because of no bootrom level exploit on the new A5 chip . Tethered jailbreak on A4 devices is possible with Geohot’s Limera1n exploit .
