    Default Friend wants to JB her iPhone 4 on 5.0

    She wants to jailbreak her iPhone 4 on 5.0. From what I read, there are only tethered jailbreaks correct?

    What is the best program to use for this jailbreak?

    Also, I have never done a tethered jailbreak before. What else is there to know besides the "can't reboot without computer"?

    You can do an untethered jailbreak using redsn0w. IOS 5.1 is the tethered jailbreak. If she defiantly has 5.0, use the latest version of to apply an un-tethered jailbreak here:

    Mac:

    Windows:

    Any problems, give me a shout here. You should be fine with these links.
