    I keep trying to jailbreak my ios 5.0.1 iphone 4 (cdma) with redsnow and it gets to the upgrading stage one and then it crashes! I start out by running redsnow, go to to "extras", then i click on "select ipsw", which i then proceed to select ios 5.0., then i click "back", then i click "jailbreak", then i turn the phone off and put into "dfu mode", doing all of this while the phone is plugged up! The phone gets to the upgrading stage one area and then i get a message that sounds "redsnow has crashed" and redsnow closes out! I keep retrying and i keep getting the same results! Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!

    Are you using the latest redsn0w (9.9b8)? I think with that you point to the 5.0.1 ipsw, not 5.0.

    That happened to me a few times while using the new version of redsn0w i ended up resetting the computer everytime it did it and everytime it worked fine after the reboot.
    Also i am running 5.0.1 and i jailbreak with the 5.0 ipsw..The 5.0.1 did not work.

    Yeah, the new version of redsnow doesn't recognize ios 5.0.1, but when I use iOS 5.0 it crashes redsnow! So are you saying I should reset or restart my computer?

    I had that same problem and ended up having to use snowbreeze.

    I also used an ipsw for 5.0 but I'm jailbreaking the 3gs.. I don't know if its the same for the 4..
    Here's a great guide
    Jailbreak 5.0.1 iOS Semi Untethered iPhone, iPad, iPod touch With Redsn0w/SemiTether | Redmond Pie
