  • Pod2g Assembles A5 Jailbreak Dream Team



    A5 Jailbreak research just got a Pulp Fiction style adrenaline shot to the cerebellum this morning as pod2g announced the assembly of a jailbreak hacking “dream team.”

    The list of hackers working together to produce a public release of the A5 jailbreak is daunting. @planetbeing, @MuscleNerd, p0sixninja, and of course pod2g are combining their hacking prowess into the Jailbreak equivalent of Captain Planet.

    Here is pod2g's entire blog post entitled "Sandbox difficulties."

    @planetbeing, the legendary hacker behind iPhone Linux and lot of jailbreaks (seehttp://theiphonewiki.com/wiki/index.php?title=User:Planetbeing) has joined the A5 research!

    The famous @MuscleNerd (User:MuscleNerd - The iPhone Wiki), the leader of the iPhone Dev Team, who did a lot of tests for Corona and whom integrated it and made it simple in redsn0w is willing to help also.

    And last, but not least @p0sixninja (Userosixninja - The iPhone Wiki), the leader of the Chronic Dev Team, and my partner for years on iPhone security research has started to code and fuzz the Apple sandbox.

    We now have a dream team to find a path for a public release of the A5 jailbreak.

    Cross your fingers.
    If anyone can produce an A5 jailbreak in a timely fashion it will be this group of hackers. Our fingers are crossed, our pockets filled with rabbit feet, our walls covered in four leaf clover wallpaper, and I personally haven’t stopped dressing like a leprechaun and talking with an Irish accent for days.

    *Again thanks to all those who tipped us off to pod2g's announcement (JP you were first)*

      I have an iPhone 4 but am excited to see this group of hackers come up with the A5 untethered JB because that just means the Jailbreak community hasn't given up! Thanks again to pod2g for the latest untethered JB for A4 devices and for his current work going into the A5 JB. Also thanks to the hackers joining forces with him to help out with the process. I can speak for the grateful ones out there that we are truly thankful for what you do for the jailbreak community! Keep up the great work!

      So ungrateful........u have no idea as to how difficult this creating a jailbreak process is. Neither do I, that's why I am patient and confident that I will have a jailbreak soon. Stop being a troll and reverse engineer your own jailbreak....thought so!

      Maybe there's an irony in that the people who are chastizing AUZambo are also being sarcastic. You think...?

      Otherwise we have a bunch of people running around here trying too quickly to be pod2g's internet white knight. Lol

      Dream team thank you so much for even giving us a chance!! Without guys like you a JB wouldn't even be possible, yet people still hate....

      For those who have been hating on these past post, JB it yourself or just STFU already.

      I'm confident enough now that I just put in my order for an ipad 2 =)

      As for AUZambo, I hope he's being sarcastic or he's a complete douche bag .. the work of jailbreaking these devices isn't a simple chore .. As an end user you just need to be patient and shut up because without these folks, the possibility to jailbreak just simply wouldn't be there in the first place.

      HAHA I love this man. I completely agree. If you cant crack it, dont bash those trying to hack it. Everyone thinks they are owed something.

      No apologies necessary, foolishness is what it is I suppose. You should go ahead and learn though. His sarcasm was a slight to the same people that you take issue with on the "sore subject." But thankfully we have you and many others to defend the internet message boards from jokes and ignorance and so on. Fight on my friend (re-insert sarcasm)

      Pod2g already has an A5 untethered jailbreak and musclenerd has a tethered. They just work under dev accounts.. They should have no issues getting over the last hurdle that can be released to the public. Just need to be patient.
      on a side note..I still suggest donating. Troll all you want, he's not buying some island and retiring on paypal donations. I seriously doubt he even made over 1500. Hardly enough to put up with such ignorance. If i recall the first programmer to just unlock an iPhone received a car and 3 new iPhones..I'm sure the internet scammers leeching their work and selling jailbreaks on the web have made more.

      Totally agree. The people that give him stick are idiots. If they could already release an A5 JB, why wouldn't they?

      The fact that these hackers are still working really hard to make their work public is a real credit to them.

      Give em Hell Dream Team! Forget about adding Geohot and Comex the two guys you need to add are @i0n1c and @Saurik. @i0n1c because he is the one that has found many entry points for the past jailbreaks and @Saurik, well he is the Man, the Capo de Capo and the Godfather of the whole jailbreak scene!

      FINALLY THEY HAVE SOME SENSE and Work Together =D Been saying this for ages on their twitter pages to Join forces !!!
      But it looked like that all wanted the name Fame, ignoring the fact that apple is joining forces with hacker to prevent JB.
      If you can't beat them buy them or join them. If you can't out hack them or out release hacks faster then Join forces to JB faster.

      Good news this is indeed,

      Now if any one just would work on the stinker Unlock BB bc that project been dead since over a year now.

      People like this are a terrible excuse for what passes for a human these days. You want to call them lazy figure out a jailbreak for yourself.

      Apparently so! Maybe I should have put a little laughing emoticon or something.
