  • 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).

      Actually you are right, but I think for a different reason. Userland jailbreaks are untethered only because they take place AFTER the codesign check takes place. We got truly lucky with the bottom exploits however. Between 24kpwn and lime rain almost every iDevice is Pwned for life.

      I think in time they will find one in the A5. People worry that they are closing up all the holes with each new device, but with each new set of hardware and each new major firmware revision, there are different holes, that weren't necessarily there in the older version. It's all a matter of finding them.

      I heard that he intended to, although I cannot remember where I read it now. However, just because it is Userland does not mean it can be done by jailbreakme.com. Spirit for instance was userland. Jailbreakme.com requires an exploit in the Safari browser, if I remember correctly.

      Someone feel free to correct me if I am wrong. I am shooting from memory and its almost 2am here.

      I think this is fantastic news...I'll settle for a tethered jailbreak(while we wait for untether) although I've never had to use a tethered 1 before.
      Thank you for all the hard work as always pod2g
      And it would be a excellent Xmas present(I'd be saying to all my Samsung phone buddies now this is what you call a jailbreak and theming lol

      While this is great news, I seriously doubt there will be any JB until the release of iOS 5.1

      Hopefully he gets the jail break for the CDMA version. As of right now it's only for gsm based iPhones.

      We can also assume that it's plausible that they wanna release it before Christmas because there gonna be busy with Christmas and new years and I don't think they wanna sit at a computer all day so we can only hope 24-25th. 4-5 days

      I can't wait then I can finally update my iPad2 to 5.01 and also jailbreak my 4S. I'm hoping for before Christmas and I will for sure be donating. If it's done by Friday it will be a Festivus Miracle.
