Chronic Dev Team member @Pod2g has demoed video of iOS 5 untethered jailbreak on his iOS device . According to @Pod2g iOS 5 untethered jailbreak will also support iOS 5.0.1 . Currently iOS 5 and iOS 5.0.1 tethered jailbreak is available through Acidsn0w , Snowbreeze and Redsn0w which can be converted into partial tethered using Semi-Tethered app on Cydia .
Advantages of using iOS 5 Un-Tethered Jailbreak :
Unlike tethered and semi-tethered jailbreak an untethered jailbreak can be used without requiring a PC to reboot the phone . It can be turned on and turned off normally . In tethered jailbreak whenever you restart the phone the device will be stuck at Apple Logo . Then you cave to connect to your computer and run “Just Boot” on Redsnow to start your phone . Semi-tethered on the other hand allows booting but most apps are not functional when booted in this way . It also requires booting using PC for full phone functionality .

No ETA has been provided as when this jailbreak will be released as the exploit code needs some rework . iPhone 4S and iPad 2 are not supported yet . Stay tuned to our Blog for more updates .
