Here’s a good news for Gevey Ultra users who have updated to iOS 5.0.1 by preserving baseband. FuriousMod has been updated to support iOS 5.0.1. But this update is unofficial, i.e. it is not directly from ApplenBerry.

Update: ApplenBerry Officially Updates FuriousMod for Gevey Ultra users on iOS 5.0.1

A user named mcbaron15 has updated FuriousMod for iOS 5.0.1. He has posted the updated FuriousMod on MacRumors forums.

Gevey Ultra provides untethered unlock. You don’t need to dial 112 each time your iPhone 4 reboots. FuriousMod performs the procedure itself without any user intervention. After the release of redsn0w which provides untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.0.1, Gevey Ultra users have been eagerly waiting for the update of FuriousMod. ApplenBerry is still working on an official update. Here’s what they tweeted recently:

We are working on an update for Furiousmod to work on iOS 5.0.1 with preserve baseband 4.10.01. Will be out soon.

How To Install & Use Unofficial FuriousMod Update with iOS 5.0.1?

Note: You must have a jailbroken iPhone 4 running iOS 5.0.1 if you want to use FuriousMod for untethered Gevey Ultra unlock. If you haven’t already jailbroken your iPhone 4, you can use redsn0w to untether + jailbreak iOS 5.0.1.

1. There are two ways in which you can install the unofficial update of FuriousMod on your jailbroken iPhone 4:

  1. Install FuriosMod.deb using iFile or via SSH
  2. Install FuriousMod from Cydia from the following repo: http://cydia.myrepospace.com/Squuiid/
