  • Bug to Untether iOS 5 Found by Ex-Chronic Dev Team Member Pod2G

    Ex-member of the Chronic Dev Team, pod2g, returns to the scene with news on an iOS 5 untether bug.

    The current status of the iOS 5 untethered jailbreak is still the same at this point; in progress. Both the iPhone-Dev and Chronic-Dev team are tackling this in full force in hopes of getting a working version as soon as practical. Two weeks ago, ModMyi reported that MuscleNerd released some screenshots of the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 jailbroken on iOS 5. As mentioned in the post, it is a preliminary step at this point but is still a major piece of evidence that the iPhone-Dev Team is working on the iOS 5 untethered jailbreak. So far, there is substantial evidence that both the iPhone-Dev team as well as the Chronic Dev Team are working to undertake the iOS 5 untethered jailbreak. Earlier this morning, an independent party has jumped on ship for the iOS 5 untethered jailbreak.



    Ex-Chronic Dev Team member, pod2g, tweeted out this morning that he has found a bug that will untether iOS 5. Known for his SHAtter exploit, he has been out of the limelight for quite sometime and hasn't been heard from publicly in the last couple of months. He has stated in prior tweets a year or two ago that he left the Chronic Dev Team for personal reasons and is now working independently. No release of this exploit/bug has been scheduled or estimated, however there are now three well-known parties working on the iOS 5 untethered jailbreak. This will prove beneficial as the time for a user-friendly jailbreak tool to support iOS 5 untethered is upcoming (sometime in the future - hopefully sooner than later).

    News and updates on the status of the iOS 5 untethered jailbreak will always appear here at ModMyi when they arrive.

      This is what we've been waiting for! Although it's not the actually release, but at least we know it's possible for an untethered jailbreak and should come in the near future!

      Hopefully it's for iOS 5.0.1 since the update supposedly fixes the battery life issues.

      I am shocked it is going this long for a untethered to be released. I thought dev team had one and just were sitting on. I am waiting for the drama where if this one gets ready to released, the Dev Team starts complaining about how they have one they want to release and don't want to burn two exploits again.

      With a tethered JB, anytime the device has to turn off, or be rebooted, it has to be connected to a computer, and rerun the JB software. I JB my iPad on 5.0 a few weeks ago, and have had to rerun the software twice. It's not as bad as everyone makes it sound. An untethered JB means that you run the JB software with your device connected to your computer one time, and that's it- makes it really easy.

      I can guarantee you that no news story is better than morning sex. What could possibly be better than that? Morning, afternoon, evening and "just because" delight? Very difficult to say...

      Tethered vs Untethered

      Why post this? Why not make the exploit then post. Sounds like a publicity stunt to me. Maybe I'm just being pessimistic....
