Redsn0w has been updated to 0.9.9b8 which allows users to jailbreak iOS 5 and iOS 5.0.1 beta for iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod Touch and iPad. This is a tethered jailbreak except for iPhone 3GS with old bootrom. Also, this method will update your baseband. So unlockers, please stay away from redsn0w until PwnageTool is updated. Or, you can use Sn0wBreeze to create custom IPSW which preserves baseband.
