After a long wait, iPhone Dev team and the Chronic Dev team released Redsn0w and Corona iOS 5.0.1 Untether to perform an untethered jailbreak on iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod touch 4G, iPod touch 3G and iPad 1 yesterday.
iPhone Dev team has provided the following information on their blog about the latest version of Redsn0w:
The b2 version of redsn0w includes the launchctl-related fix by @planetbeing as mentioned by @saurik here and here. As usual, you can just re-run redsn0w in jailbreak mode over your existing 5.0.1 jailbreak (even a PwnageTool one), making sure to de-select “Install Cydia” if you do. Always be sure to do a controlled “slide to power off” shutdown of your device before running redsn0w.
Update: It looks like the launchctl bug was causing authentication issues, which was affecting jailbreak apps such as IntelliScreen.

Please note a number of readers are reporting issues after re-running Redsn0w. So please proceed with caution and run it only if you’re having any issues with your current jailbreak.
As always, don’t forget to let us know how it goes.
