  • 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:

Just a nice piece of info if you did not already know this....
      Mine gets stuck on Respring and holding the power and home button for 10-15 seconds reboots but requires just boot for JB stuff to work again

      That JB was patched with update 4.3.5.


      This is awesome news, however, this is the first time i am in no immediate hurry for it to be released as I'm not eligible to upgrade for four more weeks. Take your time MuscleNerd.

      It's not going to happen for months if ever.
      The dev team has no idea how to jailbreak or unlock the new apple firmwares and hardware.
      Ppl are still waiting for a new baseband unlock for over a year.
      The 4s jailbreak will probably be out when the iPhone 5 is released

      Obviously you're wrong on the jailbreaking part of your post, considering your posting on a topic about proof of an upcoming jailbreak for iPhone 4S and iPad2.

      Unlocking is a bit of a challenge I'll agree, since they have to find usable exploits in the baseband. That's not easy to do with a small-ish group like the Dev Team and the time/resources/capital they have available. Also, most countries (including the US) now offer officially unlocked devices or official unlocking services, so the unlocking exploits are becoming less necessary unless you bought the phone cheap/contract/etc. Unfortunate, but true.

      Yes! Looks like I'll be getting a 4S whenever this JB comes out. It took months for comex to get the iPad 2 JB out. This time I'll wait till its out first.

      I consider a iPhone without a jailbreak, BROKEN! Thank you muscle nerd for fixing my iPhone 4S!

      I don't care if it is tethered I have only rebooted my iPhone twice and with semi-tethered it is a lot better.

      So jailbreak your iPhone even if it is tethered!

      It's best to tether jb and use semiTether. I have had to just boot several times thru redsn0w but I am new to tethered jailbreaks.

      that's talent right there. maybe a little inside info? who cares. i hope there will be a way to downgrade back to a jailbreakable 5.0 once apple patches and releases an update once this is released
