These days Untethered Jailbreak is a very hot topic and every one is after the Untethered Jailbreak for iOS 5.0 and iOS 5.0.1 on iPhone 4, iPod 4, iPod 3, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4S, iPad 1 and iPad 2. Those who got A4 chipped iDevices and lower are always on safe side. Rather than people owning A5 iDevices are not yet with any luck. People owning A4 chipped and lower iDevices are on safe side because these iDevices have been PWNED for life and can be Jailbroken Tethered on any firmware. Where as, people on A5 iDevices are not with any luck so far because Apple has equipped a whole new processor and made it little bit difficult to Exploit the Hardware.
It doesn’t matters, how hard Apple tries to put people away from the Jailbreak, every time with the release of new iOS update, there is a bug which leads to Jailbreak and starts the cat & mouse game. Now, with the release of iOS 5.0, there was a bug found by Charlie Miller, which could lead to iOS 5.0 Untethered Jailbreak. Unfortunately; Apple patched the bug in its new update of iOS 5.0.1. After the update of iOS 5.0.1 people started to loose hope in the hackers and some of them updated to iOS 5.0.1 to fix the battery drain issues. But, those who updated to iOS 5.0.1 are still facing the issues. So Apple is seeing the issues once again in its new update of iOS 5.1.
Things are going really fast. The Untethered Jailbreak for iOS 5.0 and iOS 5.0.1 has now became a reality. All thanks goes to @Pod2g for his great effort. It all started two weeks back when Pod2g announced that he has found an Exploit which will do Untethered Jailbreak on iOS 5.0. The Jailbreak was first demoed on iPod 4 running iOS 5. Then after a week of showing iPod 4 Untethered Jailbreak, Pod2g announced that every thing is good to go and testing is the next phase. He wouldn’t release the jailbreak for Beta testes because of privacy issues. Mostly testers leak the Jailbreak.
Today Pod2g announced on his blog about the new video showing iPhone 4 Untethered Jailbreak.
Here is a new video demo of the current status of the 5.0.1 jailbreak running on an iPhone 4.
This is meant to reassure people that were thinking it only works on older iPods.
The jailbreak is near ready for prime time (excluding 4S and iPad 2).
Patches are the same as redsn0w’s. Expect the same level of stability.
Some more days to wait. Be patient, we’re doing our best.
The Untethered Jailbreak is ready for all the A4 equipped iDevices where as the Jailbreak for A5 iDevices was stuck in the valley of Caches. Later on Pod2g solved the issue with A5 equipped iDevices and was able to port the exploit on them also.The work is in progress for iPhone 4S and iPad 2.
The hacker, Pod2g teases towards the release of the Untethered Jailbreak with the name of “Prime Time”. We think that the Jailbreak will be released before or on this Christmas. The Untethered Jailbreak would be a big present for Christmas by Pod2g for this year. If the Untethered Jailbreak is released on 25th of December, so we will be seeing the Untethered Jailbreak for iPhone 4,iPhone 3S, iPod 4, iPod 3, and iPad 1 running iOS 5.0.1.
iPhone 4S and iPad 2 Jailbreak might come after the release of these iDevices Untethered Jailbreak. Lets hope for the best and wait for the right time.
