MuscleNerd and Pod2g Update Progress of A5 Jailbreak
Pod2g stated some important information on his Twitter this morning.
As we are waiting for the A5 jailbreak to become a reality, many were upset when pod2g
announced that an A5 jailbreak is currently not possible. It seems that when he said that, he was simply explaining why there wasn't one yet. The hacker and his dream team continue to barrel forward with progress. MuscleNerd
earlier retweeted pod2g on Twitter in that saurik
helped contribute with the A5 jailbreak's progress. So far this is saurik's second time helping with the A5 untether and we appreciate his efforts. The hope is that the already untethered A4 jailbreak that pod2g released at the end of last year will be ported to the A5 processors.
Pod2g afterwards tweeted that planetbeing
was close to escaping the sandbox of Apple's devices. Planetbeing put a lot of time and effort into doing it. This is great news because the sandbox is one of the tough security measures that makes hacking into an iDevice hard. Escaping the sandbox means that more progress can be made. It's great to know that level of the game has been beaten.
The current untethered jailbreak that pod2g has for the A5 jailbreak required an exploit that only developers could use which is why they could not release it to the public. As he mentions in the tweet, it is imperative that the exploit used is kept a secret as it could be of use in the future. Not everyone is a developer so that means that not everyone would have the jailbreak anyway. We know that a select few of the people out there with developer accounts would have settled for this jailbreak, but unfortunately you're going to have to wait until everyone can have the jailbreak.
The dream team is working hard and more progress has been shown. Pod2g Tweets on Twitter that there is no estimated time for arrival for the A5 jailbreak yet, but with more progress being achieved we know that it is only a matter of time before one of the genius hackers finds the light at the end of the long, dark tunnel.
