  • Pod2g and the Untethered A5 Device Jailbreak

    Pod2g is just about done adding his finishing touches.

    Everyone is excited about the iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak. But, what people are really waiting for is the iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak for A5 devices such as the iPad 2 and iPhone 4S. There are still a great number of people using iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod touch 4G, iPod touch 3G, and iPad (these are A4 devices) handsets, but there are still many using the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 which use Apple's A5 technology - a new processor where the limera1n exploit has been sealed.

    The good news here is that iOS hacker, pod2g is looking to expedite his progress on the iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak for A5 devices (the A4 untethered jailbreak is finished already) by having the Chronic Dev Team help him with it. Pod2g mentions on his blog that he, "gave all the details to the chronic dev team so that they can finish, test, integrate and release the A4 jailbreak as soon as possible" and he made the promise that he will "put all my energy from now on on the A5." This means that the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.0.1 will be shifted into full throttle and be released very soon.

    There are the impatient people out there that simply said, "gimme gimme gimme" when the untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.0.1 for the A4 devices was built. However, releasing a jailbreak for the A4 devices and waiting for the A5 devices later on would have been a bad idea. It would give Apple the chance to seal the exploits in A5 devices while the A4 devices had their jailbreak. Towards those impatient people, pod2g had this to say, "Also, I know there are tons of people out there with A4 or even earlier devices who wants the untether now and don't care about it could be interesting to wait A5 is finished to release or even 5.1, so that we don't waste an exploit that took me months to find and develop. I need to focus on A5 and hope I can find a path quick, and I have the feeling that chronic-dev could help me."

    With the combined efforts of the Chronic Dev Team and hacker pod2g, Apple has been officially pwned once more. Their attempts to seal off jailbreaking for good simply won't work because we have a dedicated team on the case after every iOS release. Hopefully by Christmas or as early as the new year, we may have our untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.0.1. If you want to show your gratitude and thanks to the hackers who are providing you with these amazing features, we recommend that you do so by kindly offering a donation to them - even small ones if you would like. Hackers celebrate Christmas too!

    How excited are you to get your hands on an iOS 5.0.1 untether for all iDevices? Share in the comments!

      Think about this? Do Apple want to stop jailbreaking altogether? My answer would be a big fat NO!!!! How many of us have bought devices - ipads, iphones, ipod touches, Xbox 360's, PS3's, wii's even going back to PS1..........just becasue we knew they could be hacked. I know from the whole list of gadgets I have named I have bought all of these at one time or other becasue I knew it can be hacked. So my point is stop hacking/jailbreaking altogether and they will lose a lot (I mean a LOT) of custom.

      "If it can connect to the internet or can be plugged into a computer it can be hacked" I don't know who said that but very very true.

      Instead of wanting, excited, wanting, excited wanting we should have patience so it's done correct and not rushed.

      Also other than every wanting post I've seen so far no one up to now has asked how do we donate (no matter how small) to the hackers hard at work that make our lives easier as mentioned in the original post.

      The people that post things like "OMG WTF WHERE IS MY JB?!?!?!?!?!" are not going to be donating anyway. Most people that make donations will do so anonymously.

      That's very true or if they do they have to post it numerous times to feel like they are one of the groupies. If I didn't have bills if throw in $10

Keep up with the bs and he just might flat line the project. Appreciation keeps people motivated. Show it, donate to it, whatever. The only people that really deserve a jailbreak, are only the ones smart enough to create it. All others better thank the man for being so kind as to share.
