  • 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.

      Crossing my fingers
      Not to burst your bubble, but the iphone 4S most likely won't be jailbreakable until a jailbreak solution is introduced for the ipad 2 at a minimum. Just saying.

      It won't. You have to have a custom bundle to work with 5.0. Like I said though the jailbreak is worthless to the avg user b/c NOTHING will work without an updated mobile substrate from saurik.

      someone should be thinking ahead of the game and looking into how apple will be allowing you to download uploads over the air now.. is there a Jailbreak on a server somewhere that would allow us to point our phones to it and download the new software? This is the next step..

      You don't.

      The exploit is there and usable but that does not mean it is easy or available yet.
      The untether looks like it has been patched
      iPad 2 users should NOT update beyond 4.3.0

      Nice, I just hope that the iOS 5 won't lag on iPhone 4's and below like the 4.x.x lags now...

      Musclenerd didn't have to do any hacking for this jailbreak. Since the exploit is at the bootrom level, it's impossible for Apple to patch the exploit without a hardware upgrade. That's why the iPad 2 jailbreak is taking so long. I bet Apple was VERY careful to patch any and all holes in the iPad's bootrom and bootloader.

      I dont understand why people rush on upgrading to iOS 5 when its only beta and contains a lot of bugs.

      The integer overflow is gone at the very least, which essentially means we're starting from scratch on the untether.
      Jailbreaks (even tethered ones) will take a bit longer to cook up, even for developer-only purposes, simply because the ASLR (Address Space Layout Randomization) in the kernel and libraries makes writing patches a lot harder.

      iPad 2 GSM and CDMA users absolutely should not update to iOS 5.0 if you want a 4.3 jailbreak, because if you try and downgrade, you'll get hit with the baseband mismatch/unbootable recovery loop (and your recovery loop will be unbootable--all tools to fix that loop are based off of limera1n). I also advise Wi-Fi iPad 2 owners not to upgrade to 5.0 on principle, but you will be more likely to be able to downgrade with SHSH blobs.
