  • P0sixninja: "This A5 Jailbreak Is Quickly Becoming the Most Amazing One Yet!!!"

    P0sixninja is a member of the A5 dream team.

    The A5 untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.0.1, the one that we've all be waiting for is getting so close to completion that we're starting to smell the scent of it coming from the dream team's oven. It smells just as good as your grandma's cookies doesn't it? One dream team member, p0sixninja (also known as Joshua Hill) tweeted on Twitter shortly ago that the, "A5 jailbreak is quickly become the most amazing one yet". We know that a lot of work has gone into this jailbreak and the time put into it reflects upon their hard work which has been going on for weeks, even before the alliance of the dream team, when iOS hacker pod2g was single-handedly working on it.

    We know that the jailbreak is only a while away and that the hackers are racing the clock to get it released. Developers will certainly take advantage of the moment to release new tweaks that only the iPhone 4S can use right now, such as Siri plugins. We also know that the jailbreak for the iPhone 4S will open more doors for the Siri port to older iOS devices; something that we have been anticipating since the release of the iPhone 4S.

    While the jailbreak isn't necessarily being completed quickly, it's certainly becoming a hit quickly. The A5 jailbreak is so highly anticipated that even people who were stubbornly and comfortably using the iOS 4.3.3 untethered jailbreak already on their iPad 2 are updating to iOS 5.0.1 tonight with the news that iOS 5.1 (coming shortly) closes the Corona untethered jailbreak. P0sixninja didn't say that the jailbreak was almost done, but only that it's becoming amazing. It makes you wonder why. Maybe because the dream team is getting a lot of great work done in an orderly manner? We must admire how hard that they are working together to beat Apple at their game.

    With the constant updates from each of the hackers on a daily basis, we are proud to say that the jailbreak we are waiting for is in good hands. If you have an A5 device, please take time tonight or tomorrow to update to iOS 5.0.1 and make sure that you don't update to iOS 5.1 if you want an untethered jailbreak. There is no bootrom exploit for the A5 devices yet so there won't even be a tethered jailbreak if you update to iOS 5.1. Only A4 devices have the hope for a tethered jailbreak on iOS 5.1 at this point in time.

    Get those devices on iOS 5.0.1 folks, the window is closing.

      Dude relax bro. He's right not only is he right but I'm sure he can do more **** with his iPhone than u know about. No offense. I'm sure I can. U don't seem like u know too much maybe some simple save ap ticket bs but there's a lot more that goes into this than that. No where is this even saying the jb is close nor even possible. I've seen devs post **** saying this type of stuff and never being able to produce. Not saying the jb won't happen but if it didn't that would be a downer but not a shock. I see you posting a lot of nonsense on here stating your opinion. Well this guy is simply stating his. And to be honest I agree with him so before you go trying to push members around on here that have been here since before you thought about switching to android because there has to be a jb for a5 or you'd switch. If I remember correctly that's how you put it. iOS is more to us than a jb or a simple phone. It goes far beyond that. So please save the bs for us

      I have a question. I currently have an iPad 2 wifi model running on 4.3.3 . I want to update to 5.0.1 but I'm kind of scared to. I have download time umberlla and have saved my shsh blobs. I'm just wondering if I do update to the 5.0.1 and want to downgrade back to the 4.3.3, how can I do it? Is losing my jailbreak for a bit worth it? I'm using a Mac by the way. Please let me know how I can downgrade

      Yes, your 4.3.3 SHSH will work with a iPad 2 wifi version. You can use tiny umbrella to restore anytime to 4.3.3 if you want.

      Actually 4.11.08 is 4s aswell. I have a couple with 4.11.08 and one with 1.0.11 or 1.0.13 which ever the other 5.0 baseband is. The initial shipments contained phones with 4.11.08 and some with the 1.x.x baseband.

      Here's a link it tells you the stock basebands for which firmware/phone combinations.

      That Apple has patched the 5.01 exploit before its release is confirmation that someone in the JB Dev team DID give it up to Apple.
      The need to maintain the secrecy of exploits limits the number of Devs able to work on it - which increases the time required to produce the ultimate JB.
      Apple is winning the war - and if they release 5.1 to the public before the Dev team gets uJB-5.01 out, they'll have won this battle too.
      By any definition, 9 months of closure vs 3 days of an open JB'ing window has to be a near-win for Apple.
      It'll stop significant numbers from JB'ing ... basically, anyone not monitoring the JB situation on a daily basis.
      It's basically being driven underground.

      As long as you have the SHSH blobs saved for the firmware you are on, you should be able to downgrade with no issue using Tiny Umbrella and iTunes.

      What if by "this A5 jailbreak" he meant the most amazing A5 jailbreak and not the most amazing jailbreak ever?

      Corona is the same exploit used in A4 jailbreak that's already out.
      So Apple had access to it at the same time we all did.
