  • 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!

      You must not know the difference between a rumor and a fact because this isn't a rumor - this is pod2g saying it himself.

      i would not mind to wait for untether jailbreak for ios 5.1
      i have 3gs semitethered for now. it's not great but its fine.
      delaying the release will help him finish A5 jailbreak (if possible) and maybe till then 5.1 will be out and we could have an untether for ios 5.1 which is supposed to fix many broken ios 5 features..
      i dont mind to wait.. just get me ios 5.1 untethered instead of ios 5.0.1

      It'll work on 5.0 as well right?
      I have no battery problems and I like outdated software.

      I think we should let the guy take his time on it and not rush him into it. A4 users already have tethered and keeping ur device over 5% is not really a hard thing to do. On the other hand, 4S users like me are dying for anything. I hope all goes well and we can have it before xmas... No problem if it takes more time though great job everyone

      U could up date and find u have changed ur baseband to one that can't be unlocked! So I would hold off just now!

      By the sound of it, this thing is coming out any day now. AFAIK, Apple won't be pushing 5.1 within the next week. I would just stay on 5.0 at this point. if you need to upgrade to 5.0.1 I think you will be safe doing so when this comes out, assuming it requires it.

      I hear lots of people saying the A5 jailbreak is certainly for 5.0.1 but I've yet to see any citation. My 4S is factory unlocked so I'd don't have a BB to preserve. I just want someone to show me WHERE pod2g has said that this will certainly be A5 5.0.1. Only seen A4 confirmation so far.

      I spent 4 years owning all the iphone's waiting on jailbreaks and unlocks to be released just so I could use the device the way I wanted too. I finally got tired of all the BS and 2 months ago switched to the Galaxy S II. Best smartphone decision I've ever made! Now I still love Apple and continue to use my iPad and MacBookPro but I'm not the type of person that is going to continue to buy a phone that clearly is outdated just because it's made by Apple. The Galaxy S II is by far a much better device and experience than I ever had with an iPhone. It's not even close in comparison! If Apple steps back up to the plate with the next iPhone and release's a superior device I will gladly switch back to the iPhone. Until that time though, I am loving my Galxy S II!

      So great to hear a 4S jailbreak is on the way. I never had much jailbroken on my old 3GS but it made the phone so much nicer to use in general. Only had the 4S a couple of weeks, but loving it.

      Cheers!
