  • 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.

      It seems that many think that just because a exploit is not used in public, Apple will never find it. So if everyone waited until 5.1, and the exploit was closed? Now everyone needs to update to 5.0.1 within a day or two until Apple closes that possibility, and you only can update to 5.1. Then very few would have been able to use the jailbreak. Now we are all ready on 5.0.1 and just have to wait for the jailbreak. It doesn't matter if Apple stops everyone from upgrading to 5.0.1, because we are already there, waiting for the jailbreak.

      Can someone clarify whether Apple still needs to be signing 5.01 in order for those already on 5.01 to do an untethered JB once it's released ?
      TIA

      To jailbreak no, Apple doesnt have to be signing 5.0.1. To restore to 5.0.1 yes, they do have to be signing it. At least for the A5 devices.

      It is important to remember 3 things today wit iOS 5.0.1
      1- OTA updates are delta updates so make sure you have the full iOS on your computer incase you need to restore it and want your jailbreak
      2- Just because apple stops signing doesn't mean you are screwed. Custom Host files and programs such as Pwnage Tool will save your ***
      3- Don't be stupid, save your shah blobs with tiny umbrella

      Your number 2 only applies to the A4 devices. None of that works with the A5 devices right now.

      You should be able to downgrade because Apple is still signing both firmware. Don't know if it will downgrade the baseband as well, but it should because it did so in the past.
