  • 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.

      Once it's out, then these Siri porters will know more. Till then, we have to wait and see...

      This makes happy as a fat kid eating cake. A hippie saving a tree. Or even the feeling of anticipiatment that the new Dark Knight Rises trailer makes me feel for the movie. Good job guys. I shower you with a thank you that has the strength of a thousand suns. Take a number, multiply it by infinity and take it to the depths of forever, and you merely have a glimpse of how thankful I am. I feel like its been forever for this. Years, multiplied by yearns and compounded by time with no end. But alast it is almost done. Ok I am finished.

      This A5 jailbreak is a software exploit in iOS 5.0.1 so it's untethered, ONLY.

      ***I'm not sure if 5.0 is covered in this exploit do you 'should' update to 5.0.1 since @pod2g hasn't specified if its 5.0 compatible
      Ah, for some unfathomable reason I thought this sandbox business was exploiting the hardware, but in retrospect that doesn't make sense. Thanks.

      It probably doesn't work on 5.1.

      Thanks everyone for the info. Ill go ahead and jump on the 5.0.1 bandwagon before it leaves.

      Also, as much as I would hate to wait any longer... I believe it would be a good idea to wait for a 5.1 jailbreak. If there is added functionality, it would be unfortunate to miss out on that. We will see... I'll take ANY jailbreak over nothing. I miss "My" iPhone. As for now, my 3GS sits on 4.3.3 as a dedicated SNES emulator and iPod. LOL. I need to sell that thing...

      iTunes won't let you update your iOS devices with unsigned updates. Apple will stop signing 5.0.1 (and shut it down forever) the moment 5.1 is released.

      So, if you are sitting on iOS 5.0.0, go update to 5.0.1 right now. Nobody is making a 5.0.0 Jailbreak and because it's no longer being signed by Apple, 5.0 is pretty much dead.


      ---Save all your SHSH blobs with Tinyumbrella of course, before doing any updating. Just in case.---

      If these functions come to be that useful I'm sure some genius dev will make a tweak for these functions for all of us on 5.0.1 jail broken. So I don't feel they need to wait until 5.1. With that mindset why don't they just wait until 6.0?.....

      What about the unlock 4s. I'm really confusing and don know what to do right now. MN said on twitter as always best hope for unlock is earlier baseband so he staying 5.0 on 4s even untether backport take longer but on other side pod2g said all A5 should upgrade to 5.0.1. I needed unlock 4s

      your best bet is still 5.01. if the jailbreak comes out for 5.01 and no 5.0, how are they supposed to make an unlock for the 5.0 baseband if you can't install ultrasn0w because you aren't jailbroken

      Sometime after 5.0.1 was released, we jailbreakers were told to stay on/upgrade to 5.0 to have the best chance of getting the jailbreak.

      Now we're being told to upgrade to 5.0.1. Is this confirmed?

      Also, any word on an unlock for 3GS on BB 5.16.02?

      It's very much confirmed. P0sixninja and pod2g have both said everyone should definitely update to 5.0.1

      @p0sixninja: "Everyone should upgrade their devices to 5.0.1 (except unlockers) now while they still have a chance!!!”

      That was the case. But then pod2G came out with Corona and started working on the A5 jailbreak and has said that 5.0.1 will be the firmware it is released on.
