  • Untethered Jailbreak Code Finished for All A4 Devices on iOS 5.0.1

    Everyone in the jailbreak community is eagerly anticipating the release of an untethered jailbreak for iOS devices on iOS 5 (confirmed to work with iOS 5.0.1 as well). Therefore, everyone has their eyes on @pod2g right now who is the iOS hacker currently showing significant progress with the jailbreak.

    The hacker previously released a video demonstrating a working untethered jailbreak on a third generation iPod Touch running the latest iOS software. He then recently confirmed it to work on the iPhone 4 as well. In a string of posts found on his blog, he continues to inform the community of his progress, which consists of several devices being added to the list.

    Pod2g noted that he has completed the code for his jailbreak for the iPad (first generation), the iPod Touch 4G, the iPhone 4, the iPhone 3GS, the iPhone 3G and the Apple TV 2G. The next step will be proceeding with testing on these devices over the next few days. Once he is done testing the exploit used in the iOS devices hes developed the code for, his jailbreak will be nearly complete for all A4 devices.

    The news is quite exciting for the jailbreak community as a whole but not quite for everyone. There hasnt been any new information regarding whether the jailbreak will be compatible with A5 devices such as the iPad 2 and the iPhone 4S. Wed recommend continuing to be patient and showing support while waiting for further developments. As always, you can stay tuned by checking back on the site and/or following us on Twitter (@ModMyi) for any developments with the jailbreak.

      Good job Pod2g, that's awesome news for all of the jailbreak community, there's no doubt in my mind that once this is released the iPhone 4s and iPad 2 will be focused on a lot more, I can't wait for a jailbreak, thank you for your contributions

      I hear you. I made the same mistake when I bought my iPad 2. This time I held out on the 4S. Hopefully not much longer.

      I love how everyone can't be patient and always expect the devs to pull magical jailbreaks out their ***... Remember they are only like a core group of 20(dont quote me on number) people actually doin this. And even that some devs don't get along with other devs.

      They aren't funded by millions like apple devs. It's not their faults they can't do everything a team of 1000's could do on a legit salary. Most these iOS hacker devs got regular school life or a 9-5.

      Not to mention some of Original devs basically who were inplemental in the scene are now being paid for apple to work for them.

      What that 2 ok saying... "beggars can't be choosers" and "patience is virtue".

      Keep up the work pod2g, take all the time you want, I rather have a perfect working product than a half assed product.
