What's the safest, cleanest way to jailbreak my ipad1?

I'm running iOS 5 I believe.

  • @Andrew Larsson I tried your answer and it broke Safari and the app store, so I just stopped bothering. Oh well I only ever use the ipad as an ereader/video machine anyway

I'd recommend redsn0w. It's what I used. It's not hard to do, plus it has a lot of other tools in it that can help if you mess up. The link to the official download and a quick tutorial can be found here. You'll need to upgrade to iOS 5.0.1 beforehand.


I haven't used it myself, but this came to light after a quick Google search. Looking deeper it appears that this is the only untethered jailbreak available for A4 devices that doesn't first require a tethered jailbreak.

Good luck.
