  • Pod2g and MuscleNerd Publish Jailbreak 5.1.1 FAQ, Users Can Safely Upgrade to 5.1.1


    "You can safely upgrade to 5.1.1 now if you want to be ready" Pod2g tweeted after reposting a Jailbreak 5.1.1 FAQ MuscleNerd published earlier today.

    As usual unlockers who want to preserve their baseband should hold off on the upgrade to 5.1.1. Below is the FAQ in its entirety.

    • All info below is tentative and subject to last minute refinements
    • @pod2g's 5.1.1 jailbreak+untether is working out great. All devices are covered except for AppleTV3,1, which currently has no path for jailbreaking.
      the initial 5.1.1 plan used a kernel exploit from @westbaer which unfortunately precluded use in iPod3,1 and iPhone2,1
      @planetbeing stepped up and provided a kernel exploit that covers both of those. Those two JBers are the bomb!
    • The 5.1.1 A5 JB is very similar to the A5 5.0.1 JB. @pimskeks has done a tremendous job supporting both 5.0.1 and 5.1.1 in absinthe
    • Similar to 5.0.1, there will also be a 5.1.1 CLI "cinject" binary and redsn0w version of the 5.1.1 JB+untether. Absinthe, cinject, and redsn0w will all provide the same JB in different fashions.
      timing is indeterminate. Plans are for this week, but a number of factors can influence that.
    • For those wishing to donate, we've set up a new 5.1.1 paypal URL: paypal
    • Please don't pirate AppStore apps (seriously, please do not).
    It appears the release of the 5.1.1 jailbreak is imminent, but MuscleNerd is careful to note that the timing is "indeterminate." Nothing worse than setting deadline and missing it, especially with something as unpredictable as a jailbreak.

      5.1.1 (and 5.1) disable the URL scheme as part of Apple's effort to kill off competing apps (including official App-store apps) prior to "inventing" their own SBSettings-like shortcuts in iOS 6.0. That means many useful shortcuts to apps like Skype and maps (e.g., the very useful navigatefrommaps tweak) will no longer work in 5.1 or 5.1.1 :-(

      I'm curious what has stumped these folks on the new firmware found with the ATV3? I've heard lots of rumors from the ATV Flash site that Apple has really cranked down on this one so people are not pirating downloaded HD .mp4's from Apple and sharing. In other words, paying for a 2 day rental, open ssh and saving the mp4 permanently.

      I would be worried if they implemented this into iOS6... but it seems that Apple leaves these exploits in the iPhone/iPad none the less? I suspect they need the creativity from the Cydia Supported Community? Thoughts?
      Well is Apple going to......think for themselves?!? *gasp* hahaha

      No need to update to save your SHSH or APTicket. Tiny umbrella can save them for you now.

      If i remember correctly, the big issue with it is that there is just such a tremendously lower amount of actual code in the ATV3 which naturally lowers the number of vulnerabilities in it. It's not so much that Apple beefed up it's security rather than the areas these vulnerabilities (one or all) are found are in parts of the code that are not necessary on the ATV3. That's my understanding of it though and I'm no expert.

      If you are unlocked with SAM you need to backup/save your lockdown folder. To unlock after the update/restore you simply rejailbreak and put that lockdown back onto your phone overwriting the lockdown folder that will be there.

      So help me here for a moment....
      Is this the steps needed for preparation?
      1-unjailbreak my current i4 (Verizon) from 5.0.1 to 5.1.1 via iTunes
      2-wait for absinthe 2.0
      3-DL absinthe 2.0 and JB success!!

      And secondly,
      For my iPad 3, just update to 5.1.1 and then JB via absinthe 2.0 like usual?

      Thanks so much for any help. And thank you JB team. Going to donate on this one for sure.
