  • Pod2g Posts Demo of Working iPhone 4S Untethered Jailbreak


    A ton of brief updates flooded the Twitterverse today highlighting minor advancements in the iPhone 4S and A5 untethered jailbreak. However, none of them were quite as telling as the video above of a working iPhone 4S untethered jailbreak.

    The video made by @DHowett, Chronic Dev Team member and famous iOS developer, shows a jailbroken iPhone 4S successfully shutting down, rebooting, and remaining jailbroken. @DHowett even launches Cydia to confirm that the iPhone is indeed recognized as an iPhone 4S by Cydia.

    Those working on the A5 jailbreak still haven't announced a release date, but this video indicates a public release is closer than ever.

      Man. Being in the jailbreak community has made me really appreciate all the hard work these guys do. Without them, or any other member that has even contributed remotely, the iphone would not be the phone of my choice at all and im sure this feeling is the same to you guys/girls as well. By having a 4S and by having to use the phone without tweaks, has also made me appreciate the value in apps like ISX or my3G. So whenever the new jailbreak lands to us end users, i will take that extra minute to donate to the "dream team". These guys deserve every penny for all their hard work. They are the reason the iphone continues to be MyPhone.

      I will definitely donate at least $40 once a software unlock for the 4s running on 5.0.1 comes out. Anything short of that isn't worth my hard earned dollars.

      Without a jailbreak, there is no unlock. (I am guessing you meant carrier unlock?)

      Yes I do mean a carrier unlock. Unlocking my phone is the sole reason why I Jb in the first place. MN already mentioned the dev team has managed to dump the baseband from 5.0. Hopefully that same exploit will work on the 5.0.1 baseband. Time will tell.

      We should be seeing a brand new shiny video showing another jailbroken A5 device running Cydia today. Ive actually started expecting them rather than the actual Jailbreak...

      Theres major testing currently underway to solve the respring loop, then it needs to get wrapped in a GUI for release... So patience is all we need.

      There also looking into if siri is being effected and possibly disabled by detection of a jailbroken kernel.....grrr its torture isn't it.
