  • 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.

      Ok... I have a hypothetical question...
      Let's say I was a nefarious person and wanted to jailbreak someone's phone without them knowing it??
      Is it possible to jailbreak someone else's phone and show no trace of the jail break?

      Its possible, but you need to make sure that you back it up first. Some app data might be lost though.

      If your talking about iOS 5, make sure you find a sufficient guide on how to before hand b/c the details on downgrading iOS 5 are still murky

      So in short, yes it's possible, if the victim doesn't have apps that don't store data in iTunes.

      No... It would be on a 3Gs, iOS4, So if I jailbreak it, can you just delete the iSSH or Cydia icons that may load? What else would be visible to the user to show it was jailbroken?

      What you are discussing is immoral and almost certainly illegal.
      Please don't do it.

      That is correct; the beta is now available however.

      Yes, just back up the iPhone before jailbreaking(left-click in iTunes, choose back up), and when you want to erase the jailbreak, go into iTunes again, restore it, and when asked about setting it up, choose the backup file you have from before.

      Ok.. I think this is sooo awesome! Im leaving this comment as a sort of cry for help! lol
      Im new at this jailbreaking thing. I have cydia on 4.2. and Ive gotten pretty good at it, but Im lost when it comes to the whole "tethered" and "untethered" and SSH stuff.. If someone could point me in the right direction that could help me learn more then it would be GREATLY appreciated! I want to be good at it for when iOS 5 comes out.

      I jailbroke my iphone 4 with Green Poison, and bought a new laptop, and now my stuff wont transfer over... PLEASE HELP!! Sorry to sound like a newb.

      So funny reading everyone's comments! Has anyone bothered to watch the keynote on the new features on IOS 5 and Icloud? Like someone mentioning why someones Ipodtouch has messaging on it? IOS 5 has new feature called Imessages that you can message to any other device running IOS 5, Ipad, Iphone, Ipodtouch, 3G or wireless. And when texting to another IOS 5 device the text bubbles will be blue, not green.

      couldnt agree more. that being said, im surprised that one thing in the keynote that wasn't brought up was the split of ipod into music and videos

      I thought IOS5 wasn't coming to the 3Gs? Correct me if I'm wrong.
