For users of older iOS devices such as the original iPad, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, or fourth-generation iPod touch, you have been fortunate enough to have a tethered jailbreak on iOS 5.1.1 for quite some time thanks to redsn0w. But now that the iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak via Absinthe 2.0 has been released, you might be wondering how to make the jump to the full jailbreak experience.
Thankfully, a new Cydia package called Rocky Racoon has been released to help you convert your tethered jailbreak to untethered. If you have already have a tethered jailbroken device with redsn0w, you’ll simply want to launch Cydia and search for and install the “Rocky Racoon 5.1.1 Untether” package. Then, reboot your device and you will have an untethered jailbreak without needing to restore or lose any content.
