  • Another Update on A5 Jailbreak: 'It should be a matter of days'



    Yesterday @Pod2g, @Musclenerd, @Suarik, and @Planetbeing made a huge step in surpassing the sandbox issues in their A5 jailbreak efforts. Pod2g updated his blog this morning claiming the A5 jailbreak is imminent.

    Here are some news about the current work on the A5 research.

    @planetbeing escaped from the sandbox with the help of @saurik. Thanks to their awesome work, there should be nothing left blocking for the A5 jailbreak.

    Now it should be a matter of days. Still no precise ETA of course.

    We all want this to be finished ASAP, we're getting tired!
    Not much new from yesterday’s report, and there is still no ETA (no sense making promises that could be broken) but, pod2g's claim that the a jailbreak is only days away is extremely encouraging. IPad 2 and iPhone 4S owners can rejoice. The dedicated efforts of @pod2g, @saurik, @MuscleNerd, and @planetbeing will soon be realized.

      It doesn't offer deb backups before the servers go offline. It's AptBackup.

      I just prefer the jailbrake to be release after Apple releases the 5.1 update.

      I share your thoughts, in my opinion we should be patient and waits for Apple to release the 5.1

      Just downgrade back to 4.3.3 for your jailbreak. It'll be awhile before 5.1 is dropped and this to be released. 5.1 beta 3 expires march 18.

      once the jailbreak is released....

      1. I will wait a couple days to install the jailbreak because the servers will be completely swamped

      2. Bugs will arise, and I'm pretty such updates will be issued within the first day or 2

      I will wait on the stability of the A5 jailbreak before installing it

      This is all history material! If someone made a documentary or a movie based off of this stuff, I would watch it in a heartbeat!

      Seriously: I'm craving the break!

      Does anyone think it will ever be possible to decrypt the updates that are dropping from apple and just replace the files or do byte level patches to allow us to upgrade our devices without losing the jb?
