We don’t know what’s going in the iPhone Jailbreak Community about the iOS 5 untethered jailbreak, and the jailbreak for iPhone 4S. Most recently we heard from the iPhone Dev team that they just got hands on the iOS loop hole which allows them to port their jailbreak hack and Cydia on iPhone 4S and iPad 2, but they quickly mentioned both devices are currently running very earlier stage of iOS 5 jailbreak.
While they are trying to produce jailbreak for iOS 5 running devices and for the latest Siri-enabled devices, we learned Apple is also actively fixing the old loop holes of iOS which allow developers to perform jailbreak on their devices. It appears that Apple has successfully fixed the SHSH blobs method of downgrading device from newer version to older version. The iPhone Dev Team announced a while ago about that, but still most of the users are not aware of this sad news. With iOS 5 public releases, users now cannot downgrade their devices to older iOS versions anymore with save SHSH blobs, such as you can’t downgrade your device from the latest iOS 5.0.1 to older iOS 5.0.
iPhone Dev team actively commenting on twitter about their products, and keep updating their Redsn0w to at least perform tethered jailbreak on new iOS 5.x.x versions, but the tethered jailbreak is also a big problem for simple users, because it requires computer on every boot of the iOS device, as well as does not supports the new iPhone 4S and iPad 2. On other hand, we also learned from the Chronic Dev Team that they have some kind of iOS 5 security holes that easily allow them to port jailbreak on the device, but till now we have not seen any proof update from them.
The Chronic Dev team claims on JailbreakCon that they discovered more than five user land exploits for the iOS 5 untethered jailbreak, and will release the jailbreak right after the launch of iOS 5 and iPhone 4S. Later, jailbreak community claimed they will launch jailbreak within the couple of next weeks, sadly, We are still blessed with nothing. It appears later today that Apple has tried another move to finally kill of the jailbreak scene from their iOS age. They have blocked several old tricks of jailbreak hacker, which allow them to take full control on the device.
After all this, we can only say that “iOS 5 Untethered Jailbreak Seems To Be History Now.” However, still with all the delay in release of iOS 5 untethered jailbreak, we can surely say that they will soon release jailbreak. So don’t lose your hopes and trust from them! They are not working to earn any bucks, or wasn’t a part of Apple!
