4:13 PMUntethered jailbreak demonstrated for iOS 5, iOS 5.1
Are you itching for that untethered iOS 5 jailbreak that’s just around the corner? Do you like being teased? If so, you’ll want to check out the video that iOS hacker extraordinaire pod2g has posted. As advertised, it’s a jailbreak and it doesn’t require PC connection after a reboot.
The phone in the video is an iPhone 4, not theiPhone 4S. pod2g has also been working on aniOS 5 jailbreak for the A5-running iPad 2 and iPhone 4S, but they’re farther from release. This jailbreak will be for all iOS 5 devices other than those two. That means the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod touch 4th generation, and original iPad will be getting in on the untethered action.
Most developers hate being pestered for release dates, but pod2g has been generous with progress updates. Last week it sounded like the jailbreak was going through its final days of testing, but he’s had more kinks to work out. He now says that it’s nearly ready for prime time, but also asks for patience, saying that there are "some more days to wait.”
An untethered jailbreak for iOS 5 would be a welcomed holiday gift for iOS users. The firmware has been around for a couple of months now. Though it has been jailbreakable from the beginning, it’s a tethered jailbreak, requiring you to connect your device to a PC every time you reboot your device. The untethered jailbreak will remove those chains.
As nice as the untethered jailbreak will be, the real prize will be a jailbreak for A5 devices. The iPad 2and iPhone 4S have thus far proven to be nearly impossible to hack, but pod2g has been making progress on that front too. Last weekend he mentioned that the biggest obstacles were processor cache issues, but he quickly remedied that. The iPhone 4S and iPad 2 jailbreak won’t be release as quickly as the jailbreak in the video, but there’s a good chance pod2g will be releasing it before too long.
