  • i0n1c Confirms iOS 5 Untethered Jailbreak is On The Way


    Now that the public release of iOS 5 is just around the corner, as well as the iPhone 4S launch, the jailbreak community is begging the question; when will the next untethered jailbreak come out? Ever since the beginning of the iOS 5 beta cycle, the redsn0w 0.9.x beta has been able to allow users to jailbreak iOS 5, however it has only been tethered. For the hardcore users who will jailbreak no matter what, this may not be an issue. But for the majority of us, we need an untethered jailbreak to move forward with jailbreaking our device(s). Although there may have seemed to be no progress in formulating an untethered for iOS 5, this is not the case.

    About ten hours ago, Stefan Esser (i0n1c), known for his infamous exploits that got us untethered jailbreaks on 4.3.x, tweeted out that the untethered jailbreak for iOS 5 is "covered" already. And to conclude his tweet, he left us with "Guess who?" The answer is much more obvious than it may seem to be.



    On numerous occasions, members of the Chronic Dev Team have dropped us little hints that progress is moving ever forward in regards to an iOS 5 untethered jailbreak. Chronic Dev members posixninja (@p0sixninja) and OPK (@iOPK) at mentioned at MyGreatFest, the world's first jailbreak convention, that the Chronic Dev Team has found at least five userland exploits that could be potentially used for iOS 5. Finding these "loop holes" is exciting within itself however the process is just at the beginning.

    Stefan's tweet "out to the world" is just a reiteration of what has been happening. If you were in doubt that something is coming or being worked on, be reassured. Stefan made it clear that he doesn't have an ETA on the release of this jailbreak tool, and I can guarantee you that the Chronic Dev Team doesn't either. Continue to be patient, supportive, and be extremely excited that it is on the way!

    Stay tuned.

      I was Gunna upgrade anyways but now I know that a untethered jb is close I'm stoked to get my other tweaks back as soon as they figure it out. I have spent a lot of Cydia apps. I will miss them even if just for a little while.

I did the tethered jailbreak to my phone last week but went back since none of the apps were working which was to be expected but I had to check just in case. Can't wait for an untheathed jailbreak.
      Why do you say iMessage is pointless? If it means my wife and I can text each other for free without using 3rd party buggy software, then I'm all for it. The stock SMS app runs soooo much better than any other messaging app I've tried and used (WhatsApp, Ping Chat), and we can't afford more than the 200 text/month plan.

      Fully agree. iMeassage has been great for me. Being international I am able to speak to people in other countries the same way I would text people where I live. No third party app offering the same has been as smooth and easy to use as iMessage.

      I will wait for the untethered JB that uses custom firmware to preserve my baseband. And hopefully create an updated version of ultrasn0w. I hear that the JB's won't be working on trying to crack the locked basebands (2.10 and above) since there will be unlocked phones for sale. But I hope they will keep updating the tools for the iPhone 4 users who still are fortunate to have 1.59.00.

      Thank God for the jailbreakers! May they keep up the great work for us all.
