  • 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)*

      Why would it be out of the question? I honestly do not believe it's difficult to fathom them still contributing, even if it is under a different alias. I really don't why they wouldn't.

      really have to give these group of people a round of applause.. It is awesome to see them taking their time to work on the JB for everyone, specially for free.. Keep up the good work and I will definitely be donating if this jailbreak is possible.

      They already have, and a lot. They helped lay some of the foundation for what is happening now to exist. Who's to know if there hasn't already been some kind of communication. Where ever this goes, they're included to an extent. Just a thought...

      I thought comex was currently employed by Apple. Am I wrong?

      Pod2g is a serious trooper. This guy is unrelenting and I hope to God the donations reflect the value of the jailbreak if he gets there. That said, I'm with the other guy: if there is no way to JB then I'm a lost Apple customer. I'm waiting to see where this goes to decide on the ipad 2 or a g-tab 8.9. Android's definitely the retarded step-son, but still at least you can throw a widget up on the homescreen.

      Guys, leave AUZambo alone. He was just carrying on the tradition of these kinds of posts. He's joking!

      I still don't believe that would stop him from contributing. It's my humble opinion, that the biggest change would be what alias he or Geohot would be using online for anything related to jail-breaking. To borrow an old phrase: You can't keep a code hacker down.

      Edit: Thanks, metaserph, you're right. Seems I replied a little too hastily there.

      *Edit: it was obviously not evident I was being sarcastic. Every single thread/article discussing the A5 jailbreak has been riddled with posts like mine and I just wanted to make sure this thread kept that theme.

      FWIW, I don't even have an A5 device I really want jailbroken, so I don't have a dog in the fight.

      REALLY?? I have used quite a few of the devices out there and Apples are still the best! Jailbroken or not! I love the tweaks available through jailbreaking but my iphone 4S is fantastic without it! Si is my ipad! The ONLY thing I really miss is tethering but you know what? I just got caught for the second time and they switched my plan to the $40 with tethering 4gb plan. I have NEVER used 4gb So I get my tethering back. No amount of arguing would change their mind oh well. I miss iblacklist but now I use youmail which works better in some instances!

      Thanks to all the devs from the beginning of jailbreaking the first Gen iPhone to those collaborating for the current Gen iPhone.

      Although I had to give up my iPhone when I was BB locked out by an update, I continue to find the subject interesting and hope one day a dream team of Baseband unlockers will triumphantly emerge.
