  • 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.

      Thank you! Just wanted to make sure that was the best way to do it.

      Please, I get about 12 hours out of a full battery my 4S on 5.0.1. That's total usage with standby included. 12 hours is horrible.

      OK I'm gonna ask an obvious question but just so ya know.....blame it on my ADD baby

      When this 5.1.1 JB+untethered occurs, will this work for us Verizon users using 5.0.1? I JB with Cydia. Will Cydia be available again to use for another JB + untethered session, or will I have to use some other means of JB? I read the article but I'm still a lil hesitant here. Any further clarification will be greatly appreciated.

      Yes, everything will be the same. It works for any 4S.

      I have a 4S on 5.0.1b JB and I haven't noticed that the music app is in any way slow, as you seem to imply*. Maybe you're using a previous gen device, I don't know, but I honestly don't see any gain to upgrading a well working untethered 5.0.1 device to 5.1.1, just to have to setup everything again just the way I like it and wait once again for non-working programs and tweaks to be updated, when everything is presently running perfectly on my setup. If you or someone can truly give me a solid reason to go through the trouble of re-doing everything, I like to be open minded, but I'm not going to blindly upgrade "just to be on the newest version", as someone else had posted.

      *If you or someone could shed some light on this music app speed issue, I'd appreciate it. A quick google search, however, proved rather fruitless.

      1. Play a track in Music
      2. Put device in sleep mode
      3. Unlock the device
      4. Enjoy the small lag

      It's silly that many ppl are complaining abt unlock ... When the SAM based unlock by bingner is out and working like a charm without any problems ...

      SAM unlock was only available for a short while before it was blocked by Apple.

      I'm pretty sure the dev hasn't found a legal way to do it, so don't expect it.
      I've been using spire since it came out. Being able to use Siri on my ip4 has been pretty cool. However, I as well have seen MAJOR lag on my phone due to loss of RAM, and it's slowed my phone down DRASTICALLY. SO, today after seeing the article about the new 5.1.1 untether being released very soon, I decided to delete spire and see how much faster my phone would be.

      Problem is..... After I uninstalled spire, my phone went into a constant reboot. Even after I plugged my phone into iTunes in recovery mode, it still went through the reboot loop. Thank God for Pod2g, musclenerd, and all the devs involved in the new jailbreak. I think I can wait a few days to be on the latest firmware, and have my untether back again.

      Siri was fun for a while..... But, definitely not worth my phone lagging all the time!!!!!

      Thanks again devs!!! I will donate....... NOW!!!!!!!!!

      I'll be surprised if its legit. most legit devs will upload videos before the jb is released. I've never even heard of this fellow

      I'm sure it's not real but if you want to give some Russians your money you should be able to buy it tomorrow - that's a full two days before the proper JB is released so I'm sure some suckers will try it...
