Pod2G is working hard.
Remember Pod2g? He's the guy that made a successful iPhone 4 and iPod touch 4G unethered jailbreak for iOS 5 just within the past couple of weeks. Now, as he promised, he is working hard to get the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 untethered so that the rest of us using newer devices can be happy too. The untethered jailbreak is the one that you can use even after rebooting your iPhone. Whilst in a tethered jailbreak, you cannot reboot your iPhone at all until you connect to a computer and use software to reboot it. There is a semi-tethered option which allows tethered jailbreak users to reboot their iPhone except without and jailbreak features - only the functionality of stock iOS features.
Pod2g is shifting into top gear and attempting an untethered jailbreak for the iPhone 4S completely disregarding the tethered jailbreak; but that's what we wanted anyhow so there aren't any complaints. What we know about Pod2G's jailbreak so far is that it will be untethered for A4 devices such as the iPhone 4 and iPod touch 4G running either iOS 5.0 or iOS 5.0.1. At this point in time the iPhone 4S doesn't have any jailbreak; not even a god-given tethered jailbreak which most of us would give an arm to have on our iPhone 4S at the very least right now. Pod2g is on the case though.
So what's the update for the iPhone 4S? Well, if you refer to the image above, you can see that Pod2g has reported on his progress for the iPhone 4S untethered jailbreak. In case the image doesn't load for you, the message reads:

The processor cache issue is keeping the jailbreak from being untethered at this moment in time and hopefully if he can bypass that issue we can have an untethered jailbreak for all devices up to date.
