  • 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.

    @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.

      I don't think I really want to release this and get constant e-mails. I'm only distributing this through PM's.

      Don't blame you there at all. Cydia (the apt front end) does a lot more than people think and without knowledge of how it works it'll all come back on you. I'm not saying you don't get it but other people might not have a clue.

      Wanna send me a link? I just wanna check it out.

      Tomorrow. I have to re-code it since I had to restore. I'm finishing up my iCloud restore now and I'm about to jailbreak and go to bed.

You need to install the dependency debs with the main deb, if that don't work dependencies first then main deb.
      That's something I didn't think of although that makes complete sense. I'll have to consider that when doing it this way.

      I'll definitely take a copy of this once you're all done. I understand why u wouldn't want to release it publicly since there are steps to getting it all working. In your 'modified' tweak, would it be too hard to automatically break up the dependencies and the actual packages into separate folders? It's not a big deal for me to separate them myself but I was just curious. Thanx again for ur hard work!!! I appreciate it!

      Is it ok if it's just a bash script that depends on the app and doesn't sort dependencies?

      That's awesome! Thanx for the work! Sorry it couldn't be implemented into your app But maybe you could submit it as an add-on feature warning others that you will not accept troubleshooting questions...just a thought!

      You ROCK!

      Zokunei should start a thread on this. I've got a little input into this and feel bad mucking up this thread in news section. If not one of us can.
