@pod2g recently uploaded a video showing his jailbroken iPod Touch 3G running iOS 5.0. We heard from pod2g a while ago that he found an untether exploit in iOS 5. It is a userland exploit, so we could see another version of jailbreakme.com. Obviously he can’t give us details on how the exploit works just yet, because he doesn’t want Apple to patch the bug before he releases the jailbreak. He now tries to jailbreak 5.0.1 as well, then he will start working on the iPhone 4, iPad 1 and iPod Touch 4G. After that he will try to port it to the iPad 2 and iPhone 4S. Continue reading
Hey jailbreaking friends, I’ve found a bug that can untether iOS 5. Don’t expect a release soon, but I’m gonna work hard in it.
Two weeks ago, @MuscleNerd also tweeted that he had jailbroken the iPhone 4S and iPad 2. Pod2g said that, as far as he knows, @MuscleNerd found a kernal exploit, but doesn’t have a way to untether it.
@cpich3g @musclenerd MN has a kernel exploit, but AFAIK he doesn’t have a way to untether it. (?)
We can’t expect a jailbreak for our iPhone 4S or iPad 2 any time soon, but it’s nice to see that there are people working on it.
