Chronic Dev team had released Rocky Racoon 5.1.1 Untether jailbreak on Cydia, which allows users who have a tethered jailbroken iOS device on iOS 5.1.1 to convert it into untethered jailbreak.

Chronic Dev team has released an update for Rocky Racoon 5.1.1 Untether (v1.0-2) to add support for the revised iOS 5.1.1 9B208 software update released by Apple for GSM iPhone 4 users few days back.

If you’ve a tethered jailbroken iOS device on iOS 5.1.1 then you can follow these simple steps to convert it into an untethered jailbreak.

  • Launch Cydia
  • Tap on the Search Tab
  • Then search for Rocky Racoon
  • Select Rocky Racoon 5.1.1 Untether from the search results
  • Then tap on the Install button, followed by the Confirm button
  • After it is successfully installed, reboot your device.
If your iOS device reboots without having perform a tethered boot then you’ve successfully converted your jailbroken device to an untethered jailbreak using Rocky Racoon.
There is also no harm in installing the updated version of Rocky Racoon 5.1.1 Untether, even if you have successfully converted your tethered jailbreak to the untethered jailbreak or have used Absinthe 2.0 to jailbreak your iOS device.

    I jailbroke my iPhone 4S using Absinthe 2.0.1 yesterday, it worked well. And then today I got a “Rocky Racoon 5.1.1 Untether” update showed up in Cydia, what does it mean? Should I run that update or no?

    • There is no harm in installing the update. But you can also skip it as it is meant for GSM iPhone 4 users who have installed the revised iOS 5.1.1.

      I updated mine through Cydia but it gave me a slight problem. When I had my iPod touch 4g rebooted (through holding the power button), it rebooted but constantly went through a respring. I had it fixed by rebooting it through holding the power and home button simultaneously.. After it booted, it went back to normal..

    • Manu

      You can’t say you just can’t “install” it. How did you do it? Which ios? What was the error messages? Etc etc.

    Installed jailbreak yesterday but having issues when ever I phone someone. It locks up and I need to restard. Anyone help?

  • Frank

    I had to reset all setting going back to factory original then jailbreak to get it to work. Then when I used pkgbackup it didn’t restore everything so now I am pretty much just starting over I can’t even remember half the great tweaks I had till I try to use them and don’t remember there names :/ to reinstall …….

      Had the same problem on iPhone 4, but worked ok on my iPad 2 first edition. I think i may do a clean install or count my loses and just roll with watever works. I managed to get everything to work on the iPad by retoring from iCloud and then jailbreaking after as the option is not there if you jailbreak right after a restore. Ts seems to not work the samon the iphone 4, buti only tried once.

    Hi, installed rocky racoon on my 3GS (IOS 5.1.1, BB 6.15, new bootrom) but still need to “just boot” in redsn0w. even after rocky racoon update, same result. anyone solved this problem. thx for replying.

    • Richy33

      I just updated my Iphone 3GS and boot untethered is now impossible… I also had to boot tethered using redsnow. I solved the pb by uninstalling Racky Racoon from cydia and install it straight away again…. Reboot was successful and untethered.
      good luck.

      Hi Benji, sorry but my english is very poor. (I’m from Argentina)
      My situation is same your, finally works for you?

      (I installed rocky racoon on my 3GS (IOS 5.1.1, BB 6.15, new bootrom) but still need to “just boot” in redsn0w)

      Doesn’t work for me! please help!

      Maybe Richy33 has old bootroom, I think so!

      • Benji

        hi, try uninstalling tweaks and games, results remain the same. uninstalling Rocky racoon and reinstalling it did not solve my problem. reboot several times, as propose in other forums, with negative results. so I did the something that I didn’t want to do, “RESTORE” 🙁 , then jailbroke it and installed rocky racoon. Works perfectly. Sorry, didn’t find any other solutions.

        • cristian

          It works! Thnx!.. Sometimes is better restore, however we don’t want it!

  • ismi

    hey guys does i just upgraded my i phone 4 to 5.1.1 9b206 but i had no luck jailbroke the phone please help

    • Doggz

      Update via iTunes, then when it’s restored and your at the ‘slide to open screen make sure you don’t go any further before running Absinthe to jailbreak. After doing that you may restore your backed up setting from iTunes. iCloud will not restore anything as the option is taken away by the Absinthe jailbreak.

      Apps will need to be re-downloaded as they won’t install automatically.

      On my iPad 2 1st gen I restored my iCloud backup before jailbreaking. It worked fine, but had a problem when I launched Cydia and ran Pkgbackup as it restored my previous setting which screwed everything up and lost my Cydia icon.

      Hope this helps bud.

  • Grecco

    3GS is easy to get fixed, just buyy an iPhone 4 or 4s.

  • Thanks

    Thanks, works perfectly!

  • craig

    Was wondering if this will work on an idevice sporting a 5.1 tethered jailbreak or only if it has the 5.1.1 tethered jailbreak.


  • David

    Over the weekend I came across the newly released Absinthe 2.0 jailbreak app for 5.1.1 and decided to give it try on my iPhone 4 and it was a breeze, Now I’m trying to convince my boss who has an iPhone 3 that was bought already unlocked and with a jailbreak ( but I’m not sure what app was used ) to install Rocky Racoon 5.1.1 Untethered because his is a tethered jailbreak to free his iPhone but the only thing I’m not sure about is will it leave the unlocked hack untouched ?

    Thanks for any help –
