  • iOS 5 Jailbroken (Tethered)


    About two hours ago, MuscleNerd (@MuscleNerd), a prominent developer and hacker for the iDevice, has confirmed that iOS 5 (Beta 1) is jailbreakable. The picture above shows MuscleNerd's iPod running Cydia. According to him, the jailbreak was done in conjunction with the limera1n exploit and a tethered boot. He mentioned that the boot rom exploit has not been patched and will work on iOS 5 final.



    Although a tethered boot is aggravating as you have to connect your iDevice to your computer every time you reboot, the sign that jailbreaking is still capable so early on is a huge plus for jailbreakers worldwide. For those of us who are die hard jailbreak users and will for life, it is no longer a matter of will iOS 5 be jailbroken but when untethered will be available.

      I love seeing all these "Can't wait" comments. LOL! It's not going to be released to the public until iOS5 gets a public release. You might as well post "Can wait"

      Have you even used it? I've been using it on my phone for a couple days and it's literally bug free. I had 4.2.6 jailbroken before this and it's exactly the same, stability-wise.

      The Dev Team never release PwnageTool for betas, but redsn0w often accidentally works on betas anyway, by pointing at previous IPSW

      This is tethered jailbreak. i think its better not to jailbreak untill iOS 5 final version or untethered version of redsnow not come in market.
      Hats off to iphone dev team for an early jailbreak.

      I have provided a link. If MMi want to host it, that's fine, but providing links to other download sites is not right. Please don't do it.

      I'm pretty sure its the same process, as resn0w is the same program used to jailbreak ios 4.x
