  • 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).

      Not true, a tethered jailbreak can be derived from a userland level exploit; in fact, most tethered jailbreaks are. A bootrom level exploit is one that cannot be patched due to firmware upgrades, since Apple cannot flash the bootrom without physical access to the device.

      People ask for an estimate all the time. How should we know? We can only go with what the dev tells us. Short of that, there is no way ANYONE here can give a decent estimate.

      Sorry but i think your mistaken. Name one device that currently has a tethered jailbreak that does not rely on a bootrom exploit. You cant. Every device that currently has a tethered jailbreak is that way because of its unpatchable bootrom exploit.
