Here is a text and video guide on how to jailbreak iOS 5.0.1 using Ac1dSn0w.
Step 1: Download Ac1dSn0w from our downloads page and open it up.
Step 2: Put your device into DFU mode (If you don’t know how to do this, check the “show assistant” box in Ac1dSn0w and it will show you how to do it)
Step 3: Click Jailbreak.
Step 4: Once it has booted up, put your device back into DFU mode.
Step 5: Click “tethered boot”
Step 6: A white Cydia icon will appear shortly, don’t panic if you don’t see it immediately after booting.
Congratulations, your device is now jailbreak on iOS 5.0.1. Again, this is still a tethered jailbreak but this is much quicker and easier than RedSn0w in my opinion.
