  • MuscleNerd Provides Proof Of An iPhone 4S and iPad 2 Jailbreak - No ETA Given (Updated)


    Popular iOS developer and hacker MuscleNerd of the iPhone Dev Team has recently tweeted what many people have been waiting to see: proof of an iPhone 4S jailbroken on iOS 5. His tweet did mention that this is a very early version of the jailbreak and it is far from a public release. Furthermore, no ETAs have been given as of right now so we will have to continue to be patient.



    This does give us some hope though that the iPhone 4S jailbreak will probably be released sometime over the next few weeks. At the very least, we know it has been achieved and there is progress being made to have it packaged for a public release. It has currently not been confirmed whether the method was a tethered or untethered jailbreak but I am sure for the many iPhone 4S users, having any form of a jailbreak beats having none at all. It is also possible that the same exploit might be usable on the iPad 2 (which also runs on the same A5 chip) but there has been no mention of that either.

    Stay tuned for more information regarding the matter!

    UPDATE

    MuscleNerd has tweeted again, this time with video proof of the same preliminary jailbreak working on an iPad 2. The assumption previously made was correct! You can see the video below:

      I can't wait till this is ready. I miss my wi and pdanet. I used that all the time now I have to find a McDonalds for a wifi spot while working. However I did sell my iPhone 4 in order to get my 4s and I could not be happier! Just being patient for a jailbreak is boring haha

      iOS5 is pretty awesome and at least makes the 4S "usable" without a jailbreak. The notification bar and lockscreen notifications are the key. However, I can't even count the times I have swiped the top of my screen to open SBSettings out of habit and then sadly reminisced about my jailbreak days on my 3GS. Or hit my volume button to compose a quick message in bitesms... I am super excited for a jailbreak and do miss "my phone." I am getting sick of using Apple's phone. keep up the great work MuscleNerd!

      Great! Once that comes out I'll turn off the i4 (power button/not line) and reboot the 4s. I have to have a jailbreak. I hope apple redesigns the iOS UI for iPhone 5. I can't stand the stock look, especially the god awful BG's of the folders, multitask, and NC (now).

      If your on a tethered jailbreak and your out and about and happen to install something from cydia that requires a "reboot device" to prevent yourself from being screwed either just hit the home button and exit cydia and wait till you get home, or you can use sbsettings to respring and you will be able to get back into cydia without rebooting the device. Just a nice piece of info if you did not already know this....

      I rather apple release the new firmware asap since the earlier it releases the least chance it patch the hole.

      I think the devs are waiting for a couple more upgrades before public release as they dont want to waste thr exploit

      I agree, I would guess its a month or two, before the public see it. The cat and mouse game with Apple has just began. The Devs aren't going to show there hand first.
