  • Pod2g Shows Us Even More Progess With the iOS 5.0.1 Untethered Jailbreak

    The untethered iOS 5 jailbreak is so close, you can almost taste it.

    Are you excited for the iOS 5 untethered jailbreak? We know that pod2g has been working on an untethered jailbreak for some weeks now and he had a successful untethered jailbreak on both iOS 5.0 and iOS 5.0.1 on the iPhone 4. This means that we will definitely have an A4 untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.0.1. Pod2g has also been working hard on A5 devices. What we know right now is that pod2g is close to finishing a successful and stable untethered jailbreak for the A5 iPhone 4S and is working hard to make it as fluid and bug-free as possible. He was tainted by a cache issue, but after taking to Saurik, he was able to shift into four-wheel drive and roll right over that tough terrain.

    Pod2g has released another video on his blog, this time showing us an iPhone 4 running iOS 5.0.1 with the untethered jailbreak that he has been working on. He mentions on his blog that he added the video to try and kill off any rumors that the untethered jailbreak was intended for older iPod touches and not for the newer iPhone 4. You can see from the video that the device is indeed running iOS 5.0.1 and not iOS 5.0 which means that it is certainly safe to update your iDevice if you haven't already.

    While we will don't know exactly when the jailbreak will be released, we are hoping for a Christmas time release or sometime close after. We don't want to rush these hackers in their job because if they aren't taking their time and being careful with their skills, they could miss something important that could cause a stable jailbreak to simply topple over on its users. Since pod2g is close to having an untethered jailbreak on the iPhone 4S and because we've seen that it's possible to have an untethered jailbreak on the A5 devices (Comex's jailbreakme hack worked on the iPad 2), we have no doubt that an iPhone 4S untethered jailbreak is almost here and we will surely be there to tell you about it when it comes out.

    There are many, still, that would give anything to have at least a tethered jailbreak for the iPhone 4S because so many people upgraded to the iPhone 4S from the iPhone 4 this year to take advantage of the new hardware specs and camera features. A tethered jailbreak is one that makes you use a computer to boot up your iDevice after you turn it off while in the jailbroken state. The only way around using the computer to boot up the iDevice has been using BigBoss's Semitether hack which lets you boot up with native iOS features but no access to jailbreak features. Only A4 device users have had this luxury thus far. As there are currently no bootrom exploits for the A5 devices, there is no ETA for any tethered jailbreak.

    My advice to you? Stay patient. Be supportive. Donate to the hackers if you like. It's coming and it's going to hit the ground hard. When the untethered jailbreak comes out for all of the iOS 5.0.1-running devices, what will be the first thing that you install from Cydia? Share in the comments.

      If pod2g hasn't confirmed either way on his tweets how are we to know? I highly doubt that he's going to be able to afford buying devices for each carrier (with donations) so I'd say it'll probably be something that's known after release and people try. I wouldn't think it'd be a problem because it's an exploit on the OS not the carrier, but I am def no coder so I couldn't say for sure.

      It amazes me at the amount of ungratefulness and sense of entitlement that some people have. Pod2g doesn't have to release any videos nor does he have to work so hard to find all of us an untethered exploit or any exploit for that matter. He could simply keep it for himself and say screw you to all the people like you. It's simply a video to show all of us that it's being done on a newer device. He doesn't have to explain or prove jack to us. When you purchased your iDevice all that money went to Apple and your monthly costs go to your provider (if an iPhone), it doesn't entail a JB nor does it give any proceeds to anyone to find one for you. So instead of your sarcastic remarks, open your wallet and donate to all these devs who bust their asses to find and give us these exploits for absolutely FREE! I honestly can't believe that these geniuses are not charging for the software anyways. I'd gladly pay because they deserve it, which is why I donate constantly. I don't think you actually realize how much work they put in for all of us to have this possibility.

      Omg dot get your panties in a bunch. If you wanna give pod2g a bj go ahead and say it.
      There dope for what they do but they do it knowing donations and rep will come in along with it.
      Very few would do it if they knew nobody would donate or even say thanks. And they would charge.

      If he released it before it was stable, everyone whining to "release it now!" would be yelling for his head.

      As for the 4S users, you bought the phone knowing it would be a while before it was jailbroken. It will be when it is.

      The guy is doing something nice, the most that should be posted here is "thanks!"

      I've been running a stock i4 w/5 (now 5.0.1) and, except for some GUI issues (I hate the lock screen look, so... ugly!) I'm actually quite happy with my phone. This after having a heavily modded phone for years. Apple is getting closer to making the iPhone a good phone without us having to "adjust" things. I'll probably jb again when this comes out, if just to mod the lock screen.

      Ungratefulness? LMAO Yeah ok since you know who I am. I can guarantee you that I have contributed to the Jailbreak community a whole lot more than you have, THAT'S A FACT!

      My point is that all the RUMORS AND VIDEOS have become nothing but a nuisance! I am nothing but grateful that pod2g is working on this but that doesn't mean that I have to be grateful to see ********* videos and rumors all the time. Been seeing the same ********* videos for over two months now! WHO CARES ABOUT THE ******* VIDEOS AND RUMORS, BE PATIENT AND WAIT FOR THE JAILBREAK!!!

      Although i agree with almost everything you said here Poetikly, I just have to add that these DEVS are not hurting man. Yeah they bust their asses. Some more than others, but nevertheless, they aren't hurting. Pod is doing an amazing job, and I for one hope he holds out on the release to include the 4S and iPad 2. But the dude got a 4S and an iPad 2 through donations! I mean...we the users bought him 2 brand new iDevices. I'm not trying to take away anything from him, or insinuate that he or any of the DEVS owe us ANYTHING, but in all reality, there's no point in scolding the children for making sarcastic remarks, or demand he release it, or insist he ignore 4S/iPad2 users so that they can have theirs, because they're just kids and leaches who DONT donate. I have a hard time staying away from comments on any of these stories because they all say the same thing! They cry their little butts off because they can't jailbreak their old and ancient devices with an untether option. For crying out loud if it bothers you SO much go tethered!! How often do you turn off your phone?!! I NEVER do! I don't know anyone who does! LOL

      On a side note can people please stop saying Sunday Funday? I can't even remember the last time a jailbreak was released on a Sunday that was predicted as such. Secondly-he never said he was releasing it THIS coming weekend/christmas/sunday funday/ or any other date.

      So anyway guys, things seem to be moving along nicely for pod2g and his untethered jb. Hopefully a public release is just around the corner.

      Happy Christmas everyone

      I've donated and waiting on whenever it's good to go. First thing off Cydia: IntelliScreenX, Winterboard, SBSettings, iFile and the rest of my 145 packages on backup.
