    Default i0n1c Confirms iOS 5 Untethered Jailbreak is On The Way


    Now that the public release of iOS 5 is just around the corner, as well as the iPhone 4S launch, the jailbreak community is begging the question; when will the next untethered jailbreak come out? Ever since the beginning of the iOS 5 beta cycle, the redsn0w 0.9.x beta has been able to allow users to jailbreak iOS 5, however it has only been tethered. For the hardcore users who will jailbreak no matter what, this may not be an issue. But for the majority of us, we need an untethered jailbreak to move forward with jailbreaking our device(s). Although there may have seemed to be no progress in formulating an untethered for iOS 5, this is not the case.

    About ten hours ago, Stefan Esser (i0nic), known for his infamous exploits that got us untethered jailbreaks on 4.3.x, tweeted out that the untethered jailbreak for iOS 5 is "covered" already. And to conclude his tweet, he left us with "Guess who?" The answer is much more obvious than it may seem to be.



    On numerous occasions, members of the Chronic Dev Team have dropped us little hints that progress is moving ever forward in regards to an iOS 5 untethered jailbreak. Chronic Dev members posixninja (@p0sixninja) and OPK (@iOPK) at mentioned at MyGreatFest, the world's first jailbreak convention, that the Chronic Dev Team has found at least five userland exploits that could be potentially used for iOS 5. Finding these "loop holes" is exciting within itself however the process is just at the beginning.

    Stefan's tweet "out to the world" is just a reiteration of what has been happening. If you were in doubt that something is coming or being worked on, be reassured. Stefan made it clear that he doesn't have an ETA on the release of this jailbreak tool, and I can guarantee you that the Chronic Dev Team doesn't either. Continue to be patient, supportive, and be extremely excited that it is on the way!

    Stay tuned.

    IOS5 is better but it still needs to be jailbreaked to be great.
    It still doesn't do a lot of things that jailbreaking does.

    Don't forget if it wasn't for jailbreaking and the cydia apps IOS5 wouldn't look like it does. 99% of the new features were from a jailbreak/cydia app first.

    iOS 5 is pretty lame to say the least. Won't be putting it on any of my devices anytime soon.

    I'll be putting iOS 5 on my phone even if there's no jailbreak. It's too big of an upgrade for me to pass.

    For some, "too big of an upgrade" is quite a fine reason not to.
    4th gen, and iPad2s should be okay. But I'd be a bit leery with anything older...

    Patiently awaiting the release of the untether. For now, my iPhone 4 on iOS 5 with tethered jailbreak is awesome. Cant wait for my 4S!

    I can't wait! Really, I can't. I had to restore my phone due to a mishap updating stuff from Cydia.

    a software unlock in not necessary anymore, with apple selling unlocked iPhones its not a priority, also you can just use gevey sim ultra which works like a charm. i rather them devote the time to jailbreaks instead of trying to crack the baseband, so as of know you have options for an unlocked iPhone, so i don't even want to hear whaaa... where's the unlock. its at the store... go buy it.
