  • More Progress Made on Untethered iPhone 4S Jailbreak


    There are many eager iPhone 4S users waiting for iPhone hacker @pod2g to jailbreak. Earlier today we reported about his update regarding caching issues he was experiencing with the 4S jailbreak. It seems that the obstacle has been overcome. In an update to his blog post, the iPhone hacker acknowledged that he had solved the A5 chip cache issue, which means the iPhone 4S jailbreak is in its final stretch.

    His recent blog post mentioned the following:
    I discussed with @saurik today about the launched boot process, and hes found one missing piece of the puzzle I needed to have a perfectly stable jailbreak. Hes definitely one of the best iOS gurus out there. Thank you saurik!
    It appears that the untethered jailbreak stability was fixed alongside with the caching issues. Previously, it was uncertain how much time the fix would require but it turned out to be a quicker fix than expected. This gives us the impression that the iPhone 4S untethered jailbreak is nearing completion with a release date rumored to be set around Christmas time.

    What is left unconfirmed is whether or not the iPhone hacker has a working tethered jailbreak for the iPhone 4S. Many people seem to be willing to settle for a tethered jailbreak while waiting on an untethered one, as any jailbreak beats none. With work progressing quickly though, everyone has high hopes of quick release. As usual, we will keep you updated with the latest news. You can stay tuned by checking back on the site and/or following us on Twitter (@ModMyi).

      So what do you guys think people that have been waiting on 4.x should do?

      Update to 5.0.1 to avoid the possibility of being locked out of this JB if Apple releases 5.1 soon? I have my 5.0.1 SHSH saved but it sounds like that may not be enough without the APTicket.

      I'm not convinced this will work on 5.1 or they will wait for 5.1 to be released.

      I would go and update to 5.0.1 now knowing that there will be an untethered jailbreak for
      iPhone 4 (4S can't be on iOS 4).

      Right, I am on iPhone 4. I guess I just don't want to be stuck un-jailbroken on 5.0.1 too long .

      I can wait as long as it takes for an untethered jailbreak for my 4S.

      Looks like 2012 may start off very nicely. Happy Friggin' Holidays!!!

      Can the SHSH or AP Ticket even be saved on a 4S on 5.0.1?

      Well @pod2g already has the iPhone 4 untethered jailbroken. He's just working on jail breaking the A5 devices, 4S and iPad 2.

      Don't think so.

      Silly question but does anybody know if I'll be able to apply an untethered jailbreak over a tethered jailbreak? Or do I need to restore then rejailbreak when the untethered comes out?

      Just jailbreak tethered. You will like it way better being in ios5 than ios4.

      I'm sure he's referring to the untethered iOS 5 JB, which while it "exists", it isn't released.

      So yes, this will work on older devices, I assume they will all be released together.

      Yes you can jailbreak using redsn0w , but its a tethered jailbreak, which means you will have to use redsn0w every time you reboot your phone. The jailbreak we are talking about here is an UNtethered, which just makes life a little easier by not having to use redsn0w when you reboot the phone... it works in the same way, untethered is just better to have.

      SO if you want a tethered jailbreak on your iPhone 4 5.0.1 then go ahead and use redsn0w, but since it seems like you are new... you should probably wait until the untethered comes out in a week or so (I"M ASSUMING) just for the love of god DONT UPDATE lol... cuz if you post a "i updated oops" thread, you will be laughed at .



      Happy holidays !
