  • 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.

      Awesome!!! Take your time. If 5.0.1 is still buggy, then wait for 5.0.2. iOS4 wasn't jailbroken publicly till 4.0.1 anyway.Semi-tether is working good for me, so I can wait just fine. Although all the 4S users are hurting from lack of a Jailbreak... But his untether may not even work on a 4S....

      What's to be shocked about?
      The dev team always ******** to make it sound like they are legit.
      They also said they had a iPhone 4 new baseband unlock over a year ago, where is it?

      For those of you ******** about the lack of the untethered jailbreak...Why not try the Semi-tether after jailbreaking? Applied by app through Cydia, this works great, and the only caveat is,not to run the apps listed as not compatible with IOS 5;and not to reboot unless near a computer.There are seveal sources available from Google for the list of compatilbe/partially compatible/not compatible.Examples: Cydiahelp.com and Appletell.com

      If they are idiots, why don't you just figure it out? You complain about something these people are doing for everyone's benefit! You don't contribute and you don't pay for it. So stop complaining. You don't deserve a jailbreak.

      Way to go fellas! Looking forward to jail breaking my iPad 2, hopefully can still do multiple profiles!People seldom realize that things such as jail breaking get harder as time goes by due to the producers of the product (in this case Apple) refine their product. However, jail breaking also provides Apple with a means to advance the security of their product Keep up the great work!

      Hm, I'll have to respectfully disagree. I've only done untethered JBs until this one, and initially I thought tethered wasn't that big of a deal either until one of my tweaks - listed as compatible - was causing some minor issues, so I rebooted (right next to my computer) and when I booted tethered I got the 1/4 screen issue. Despite all the fixes found online (it's hard to use SBSettings to fix it if it's in only a qrtr of your screen) I still ended up having to restore and rejailbreak my phone. I've since decided that I simply WON'T reboot in this "semi-tethered" JB state. I also won't be using tethered JBs any longer. Patience (for an untethered) will be a virtue.
