While iPhone Dev team released a new version of Redsn0w 0.9.10b1 that allows iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod touch 4G, iPod touch 3G and iPad 1, Chronic Dev released a jailbreak app called Corona iOS 5.0.1 Untether.

Corona iOS 5.0.1 Untether allows users whose iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod touch 4G, iPod touch 3G, iPad 1 is on a tethered jailbreak to magically convert into a untethered jailbreak so that they no longer need to tether their devices to a computer to reboot them.

Chronic dev team provides the following information about the Corona iOS 5.0.1 Untether jailbreak app:

this package will allow your 5.0.1 device to install pod2g’s untethered exploits and reboot without requiring an external tool like redsn0w or sn0wbreeze, and without having to restore your device (so you get to keep all your apps, contacts, etc).

Update: Please note a number of readers have reported that they’re having issues with iBooks after using this method.

Here’s a step by step guide to convert your tethered iOS 5.0.1 into a untethered jailbreak. Please note that as the name suggests Corona iOS 5.0.1 Untether only works on iOS 5.0.1.
