If you are a regular user of Koolmobile you must be aware of the development going on for the upcoming iOS 5 for which iOS 5 Beta 6 has been released nearly a week ago which is the 5th revision of iOS Betas for Developers. Although the iOS Beta are destined for developers only but Jailbreak community has offered Sn0wbreeze and Redsn0w Jailbreaks for iOS 5 Beta 6 which allows normal iPhone users to upgrade to iOS 5 Betas.

Note: Jailbreak on iOS 5 Betas is tethered therefore we dont recommend you to upgrade your device to iOS 5 Beta however if you still want to give it a try make sure that you save your SHSH blobs using  TinyUmbrella or iFaith before upgrading to iOS 5 Beta. SHSH Blobs will allow you to downgrade your firmware later when required.
