Step 5 – Now launch RedSn0w up >> click on [Extras] >> then click [Select IPSW] >> locate the iOS 5.0.1 .ipsw file >> then hit the [Jailbreak]. Just don’t forget to install Cydia.
Step 6 – Put your iPhone into DFU Mode by following on-screen instruction.
Step 7 – Now RedSn0w should start jailbreaking your iPhone. Sit tight, wait and pray.
