Shortly after Apple released its new iOS 5.0.1 to developers which aims at fixing a lot of the previous iOS 5 version bugs like the battery life bug, the iPad 2 smart cover issue, adding original multi-tasking gestures to the original iPad, resolves bugs with documents in the Cloud and more, it released an iOS 5.0.1 beta 2. The update seems to bring nothing more to the table than better stability.

iOS 5.0.1 beta 2 can be jailbroken using RedSn0w or Snowbreeze. A new version of RedSn0w 0.0.9b9 was released to jailbreak the iOS 5.0.1, and according to MuscleNerd the new RedSnow version will jailbreak iOS 5.0.1 b2, but you just have to point it to IPSW 5.0 or 5.0.1. Maybe, we`ll receive a fully compatible version soon. Today, iH8Sn0w has updated his SnowBreeze jailbreak tool for the beta 2.
