Note: Jailbreakers and unlockers must stay away from this update. A tethered jailbreak is available for iOS 5.0.1, but Apple might have fixed the exploit that Charlie Miller discovered recently. So, untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.0.1 might take time. Also, it’s not possible to downgrade to iOS 5.0 once you’ve updated to iOS 5.0.1, because the SHSH downgrade method has been patched by Apple.
