  • Hacker i0n1c Taunts An iOS 4.3.5 Untethered Jailbreak

    Was i0n1c joking or not joking? That... is the question.

    There are many people who have still not upgraded to iOS 5 because they are stubborn and want to wait for the untethered jailbreak that pod2g and the Chronic Dev Team have been working on. Some of those people are running iOS 4.3.5, which doesn't have an untethered jailbreak because iOS 4.3.3 was the last untethered jailbreak made. For those people - we have some possible humor (or maybe a serious concept) to share with you. iOS hacker and security expert, i0n1c, said that he will be working on an untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.3.5.

    We in the jailbreak community have found that i0n1c can sometimes be very sarcastic - many times he is simply misunderstood. While it really wouldn't make sense to release an untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.3.5 with an iOS 5 untethered jailbreak underway, i0n1c appears to have polled all of his followers in what they thought about an untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.3.5. Most of them were negative comments - so of course, i0n1c was the first one to say that he would do it. No one really knows if he was serious or not - but chances are that it would seem like a waste of time and it won't ever surface.

    Since iOS 5 has so many more features than iOS 4, any jailbreakers that would choose iOS 4.3.5 overs iOS 5 right now would be making an insane decision. All of the devices capable of running iOS 4.3.5 right now are capable of running iOS 5. With that in mind, even if i0n1c does release an untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.3.5, we suggest that it would be a better option to update to iOS 5.0.1 and use the Chronic Dev Team's untethered jailbreak for iOS 5. This way you get the most amount of features from iOS and the most jailbreak tweak support as possible on your iDevice while developers continue to update tweak support for iOS 5 and drop support for older versions.

    While the whole tweet was probably a joke, we don't recommend taking what i0n1c says about it in vein. If he ever does release an iOS 4.3.5 jailbreak, we will let you know about it and you can make your decision from there. For now, save your iOS 5.0 and iOS 5.0.1 SHSH blobs and APtickets so that you have a way to get back to iOS 5.0 or iOS 5.0.1 if need be.

    Are you the kind of jailbreaker that would take an iOS 4.3.5 untethered jailbreak over an iOS 5 untethered jailbreak? Share in the comments...

      I would only be useful if the 5.0.1 jailbreak wasn't followed by an unlock for iPhone 4, or pwnage tool

      Interesting....He can just cook up an untethered explot just like that? It would have been a lot better for him to do this when everyone was still on 4.3.5......I'm thinking it may have just been a joke.. But who knows...

      What's your point? You only quoted a fraction of the sentence and mislead it.

      well i think this is pointless since 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak is very close. or at least i hope its close to being done.

      OK i have no idea why there are so many negative comments from everyone about jailbreaking the 4.3.5 firmware. alot of people just like my self bought an ipad 2 on firmware 4.3.5 and are now stuck and have the choice to either update to ios 5 and join the crowd on waiting for a dam near impossible jailbreak for it ,or stay where they are meaning to sit and wait to see if someone will even consider jailbreaking the old but much needed firmware of 4.3.5! this by any means would NOT be a "pointless" jailbreak because as the article states, THERE are alot of people sitting,waiting on 4.3.5! waiting for ANYTHING to happen that will get there device jailbroken Soon! ios 5 could take forever as it has been (for a5 devices) agin in my case an ipad 2. either way it goes this jailbreak could REALY clean up on unjailbroken people. (on ipad 2's running 4.3.5 atleast!!)

      I personally think as long as it doesn't burn a still-useable exploit, go for it!

      It's great to have as many firmware versions as possible untethered. People are always going to have differing preferences. Some people, particularly older and/or less tech-savy people, don't like upgrading and restoring all of the time and having to redo all the jailbreak tweaks and settings every 2 months when apple releases a new firmware (exaggeration for illustration). Even though I, and I'm sure many others, think its fun to do it (succesfully)! I know someone is going to give me crap about this, but it's just my opinion. I know most of the people on these forums restore weekly give or take, so it's hard for us to understand the people that don't want the new features, but you have to remember that iPhone is the best selling smartphone with less technologically literate individuals (LTLI's).

      In short, if the exploit that will be used is closed in iOS 5, and S.E. is willing to take his time to work on it, and it's not taking him away from any A5 untether project (since A4 is already in the bag thanks to @pod2g, & soon A5 -fingers crossed); why not? Why not let those people who are comfortable on iOS 4 stay there and have the same freedoms as those of us on 5 will (hope, hope)?

      Wasting iOS5 usable exploits = BAD
      More jailbroken iOS versions = GOOD
      Untether any iOS version/device = IDEAL

      ^OBVIOUSLY^

      I'm in almost the same titanic iPad 2 boat as you, except on 5.0 and agree with you 100%. Sadly I don't think this would be an A5 jailbreak, and if it were, it'd be a long way out most likely. Maybe when Chronic-Dev releases the new tool it will be capable of jailbreaking 4.3.5/4.2.10; we don't know. It doesn't do us any good to speculate, as we may be let down.

      Like I said I (WE) HAVE NO IDEA, and I shouldn't be speculating... Patience is all I'm working with! Lol

      Because it's a waste of time when the 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak for A5 devices (including your ipad 2) is just on the horizon. Jailbreaking old software that hardly anyone even still uses especially when the 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak comes out doesnt make sense.

      ionic is obviously joking. Look at the logic he used and you can see it was just a joke. Funny though to see everyone freak out about it
