A two or more weeks ago, the world got its first iOS 5.x untethered jailbreak exploit for their iPhones, iPods and iPads from the infamous hacker po2dg, which has recently made a new wave in the jailbreak community by claiming that he got a method to provide untethered jailbreak for A5 devices means iPad 2 and iPhone 4S. The iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak was launched by both iPhone Dev Team and Chornic Dev Team with help of pod2g’s discovered exploit, but the jailbreaking community doesn’t stop here.
We have found Pod2g’s a bit more social active than any other iOS dev in the community and learned that he has been successfully able to fix the iOS 5.0.1 untether exploit for the action time with the help of the iPhone Dev team, Chronic Dev Team and Saurik. The pod2g’s has recently also announced that they have formed a new developer team named “Dream Team” on the base of existence popular jailbreak hackers. It appears that the Dream Team had been contacted by the new jailbreak hackers team and to get the access on the latest iOS 5.0.1 untether exploit for their tool.
We have today learned that Pwn Dev Team had contacted the Pod2g for the iOS 5.0.1 A5 untether exploit access for their recently launched new tool to jailbreak iOS devices named “Ac1dsn0w” for the Mac OS users only. The new tool launched in the community with a bit controversial launch, as the tool at first contains some library files that are protected under the Apple’s copyright, but later fixed within the next update.
I just had a talk with @pod2g via email. Such a nice guy! He will share with us his iOS 5 untethered exploit. Ac1dsn0w untethered is coming!

However, according to the tweet of imRel0ad, the key member of Pwn Dev Team claims that he got words from the pod2g to publish the A5 untether through their newly launched jailbreaking tool.
For those who not know about the Ac1dsn0w and the Pwn Dev Team, it’s a new team of iOS hackers aim to provide new features and methods to provide jailbreak to iOS users and claimed the couple of big things with their first launch of the jailbreaking tool like remote jailbreaking, but has not been yet able to provide any clue regarding their project. Well, currently there is no advantage to select Ac1dsn0w over the other already available tools in the market, but if pod2g exclusively gave them its new exploit, then it becomes the new shinny star of the jailbreaking community.
