With the release of iOS 5.1, the latest version of iOS comes the need to jailbreak it and that’s what isn’t available as yet. You might be aware that on installing the latest iOS version any jailbreak if present would be lost. Right now it’s only the A4 device owners enjoying the 5.1 freedom. Here is how to tethere jailbreak A4 devices with RedsnOw.
The iOS 5.1 not only includes Siri support but also an improved battery life and lots of bug fixes. An all new iPhoto app for iOS was also released at the Apple event. This iPhoto app does sound great except for the fact that it needs iOS 5.1 to be installed on the device which again means the jailbreakers got to get started on it.
Typ0s2d10, a developer has released the iPhoto501Fix in the Cydia store that prevents the iPhoto app from crashing and at the same time enabling jailbroken iOS 5.0.1 users to get the iPhoto even if they don’t have an updated firmware. In other words the fix patches up the iPhoto app.
Following the steps below will help you learn how to install iPhoto on iOS 5.0.1 (iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch):

Step 2: Go to the /System/Library/CoreServices and then open the SystemVersion.plist at the bottom with a text editor.
Step 3: The .plist file comes withtags at the bottom consisting of the installed iOS version. Edit the string to read ‘5.1‘.
Step 4: Now save the edited .plist file and then exit. After that respring the device, open the App Store and download ‘iPhoto’.
Step 5: Open up Cydia and look for ‘iPhoto501Fix‘. Now install the fix in the same way as you would install any other Cydia package.
Now you need to respring the device. And after that run iPhoto app which will scan the photo library with full access to the application.
