Pod2G Posts Picture of iPad 2 On iOS 5.0.1 With Untethered Jailbreak
Pod2g's jailbroken iPad 2 running iOS 5.0.1.
The A5 untethered jailbreak is inching closer with another update that was posted on pod2g's blog today. The update shows an iPad 2 on iOS 5.0.1 running an untethered jailbreak. The iPad 2 is one of the A5 devices, the other being the iPhone 4S, that the dream team has been working on releasing an untethered jailbreak for. With this news, any iPad 2 owners hesitant on updating their iPad 2 to iOS 5.0.1 in fear that their iOS 4.3.3 jailbreak will be gone forever should update as soon as possible because iOS 5.1 patches the exploits that are used in the jailbreak for iOS 5.0.1. iOS 5.1 is still in beta, so there is still time to get all of your iDevices running iOS 5.0.1.
If you have an iPad 2 and you want to jailbreak but are afraid that you won't be able to use iBooks, then don't fear. The Corona untethered jailbreak (redsn0w included) was updated not too long ago to fix the sandbox issue for the jailbreak. This will be integrated into the A5 jailbreak so that iPhone 4S and iPad 2 users can use their books while jailbroken. It will also fix any problems with other applications that didn't play nicely with the sandbox problems because the Corona update was a kernel level fix.
We have been getting comments from many Modmyi readers about how their mouths are watering from seeing all of these amazing jailbreak tweaks and applications that developers are releasing for use on iOS. It is only a matter of time before we get to see how a jailbreak works on that dual core processor and we get to see how lag-free it is. It's only a matter of time before we open up Siri. It's only a matter of time...
Now that we know for sure that an iPhone 4S and iPad 2 can be jailbroken untethered, we know for absolute sure that the jailbreak is imminent. Do you believe in the dream team now? We do!

Here's a question I find silly and yet still I have to ask ... I can't back up my blobs on 5.01 until a jailbreak happens.. can I?
I realize I can jailbreak when it comes out, but won't be able to restore without signed firmware.. if I understand the process correctly, the blobs are backed up from the device itself.. so I should be safe waiting for the jailbreak .. is that correct? I've been in the community a long time ( since iphone 1 ) but I just want to verify my logic =)
By the way - I'm talking about an ipad 2 .. my ipod 4g is already backed up and set.. custom firmware and all.

My iPad2 is crying out to be jailbroken. Can't wait to be able to theme the iPad and get all those lovely apps from Cydia.

This is just so mouthwatering

Oh sweet more annoying pictures of pod2g using Jailbroken A5 devices. Haven't seen these before Clearly it's become a game to just taunt people with the A5 Jailbreak.

I think I'm now in a position to predict with full confidence that by this time next week... we will for sure have another picture of a Verizon 4S, also running the development version of Cydia. Can't wait for that!

Question ----------- I updated to 5.01 - Is there a point in TinyUmbrella/SHSH saving my iphone 4s right now ?
I just did it anyway, and got these errors and messages:

"This device isn't eligible for the requested build." ?? Am I cool ? does this even work on 5.0 anymore?

Sandbox cracked, code running bug free.... Not sure what else is causing the delay. Great work though.
