Last night we have served you with news from the Chornic DevTeam head Joshua Hill which posted a hint on its Twitter account regarding the progress of iPhone 4S and iPad 2 Jailbreak from the combined iOS hackers team. The report told us that actual process of jailbreak is completed, and now the developers are testing it to fix several bugs from the core of the service. In addition to Chronic DevTeam words, the iPhone DevTeam key member, MuscleNerd also publishes a detailed blog post on their website about the details of iPhone 4S Untethered Jailbreak.
We know; we have been seeding the same news of iPhone 4S and iPad 2 Untethered Jailbreak launch from the couple of last weeks, but at this time the iOS hacker team claimed us that they have finished their work on the exploit and now getting ready to get pop on the publication websites/blogs with their new tool. MuscleNerd has published a post on an iPhone Dev Team blog, with title “Corona A5 Jailbreak nearly ready to pop!” The post only provides the insight of the newer tool and the combined efforts of both iPhone Dev team and Chronic DevTeam behind the launch of Corona A5 untethered jailbreak for iPhone 4S and iPad 2.
“Due to the combined efforts of @pod2g and members of the iPhone Dev Team and Chronic Dev Team, we’re nearly ready for a general release! All technical hurdles dealing with the underlying technique have been overcome, and its now all about making the jailbreak as bug free as possible…
To be as flexible as possible, the A5 version of the corona jailbreak will take multiple forms:
Chronic Dev have incorporated the overall flow into a GUI that runs on your Mac or PC. The goal is for the GUI to be enough for most cases.
iPhone Dev have incorporated the exact same flow into a command-line interface (CLI). This will allow us to help users through individual steps of the jailbreak manually, to both help the user and help improve the overall flow. Although the CLI will also allow the user to perform the entire jailbreak from beginning to end, we anticipate it will be more useful in debugging the occasional errors. The CLI currently has over 20 individual options (in addition to the single “jailbreak” option) that should be useful during debug after the GUI release.
Once all the bugs in the flow are worked out, we’ll also incorporate it into the redsn0w GUI (but still leave the CLI freely available too). In order to maximize the chances of the jailbreak working for everyone, the redsn0w GUI will use native Apple iTunes libraries — this technique is slightly different than how the Chronic Dev GUI handles communications, and should provide nice combined coverage for all the odd computer configurations out there.
The supported firmware versions will be:
iPhone 4S: 5.0 (9A334), 5.0.1 (9A405) and the “other” 5.0.1 (9A406)
iPad 2: 5.0.1 (9A405)
iPhone 4S owners looking to maximize their chances of achieving an eventual software-based carrier unlock should be staying at 5.0. Everyone else should be at 5.0.1. If you’re an iPhone 4S owner who already updated to 5.0.1, it’s too late to go back down to 5.0. But if you’re on 9A406 it is possible to downgrade the BB by going to the 9A405 version of 5.0.1 while the window is still open.”
As a part of the untethered jailbreak development, both teams have devoted their big time of their life for the public launch of iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak on iPhone 4S and iPad 2. The team has been now running a shared PayPal account to receive donations from you to cash a bit of their efforts. So, if you really love the combined efforts of the team must donate to them to keep up their spirit in the community. The post also shares a part of the jailbreak actual work, and therefore, now we will recommend you to must take a backup of your important data from the device, before applying the newer jailbreak on your device.
