Due to the much awaited untethered jailbreak solution for iOS 5, the jailbreak community has currently set its eye fixed on pod2g. Over the past weeks now, we have been keeping ourselves in the loop regarding pod2g's progress on his untethered jailbreak. And today, pod2g has yet another update for those who are eager to get their hands on an untethered jailbreak.
Just yesterday, pod2g posted an update on his blog which shows the iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak working perfectly on an iPhone 4. Pod2g has posted the video because he wanted to put to rest the rumors that the upcoming untethered jailbreak will only work on older iPods. Unfortunately, it seems that the working untethered jailbreak is only applicable for A4 devices, meaning A5 devices such as the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 has yet to be jailbroken on iOS 5. But pod2g has already started working on A5 devices and it looks like he will now be focusing his work on the said devices. Here's what he has to say on his latest update:
I need to focus on A5 and hope I can find a path quick, and I have the feeling that chronic-dev could help me.
So, here is what I did:
- I gave all the details to the chronic dev team so that they can finish, test, integrate and release the A4 jb ASAP.
- I'll put all my energy from now on on the A5
Hope I don't disappoint.
It seems that the Chronic-Dev Team is already on the case of wrapping up the iOS 5 untethered jailbreak so that it can be ready for primetime release. Pod2g on the other hand will be focusing his time and resources on working with A5 devices. Our advise for users is to have more patience. According to pod2g, it took him months before he has found the exploit that made way for the untethered jailbreak. While the jailbreak for A4 is pretty much guaranteed, A5 device owners will have to wait and hope for the best. Don't worry because it seems that the Chronic-Dev Team will be lending their hands as well.
So there you have it, we do hope that Chronic Dev can iron out the kinks with the iOS 5.0 and iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak and have it released once ready. [via Pod2g Blog]Contact Us for News Tips, Corrections and Feedback
