Couple of days ago Pod2G had posted on his blog that, with some luck, he may be able to pull off an untetehred jailbreak for iPad 2 and iPhone 4S running iOS 5.0.1. Pod2g has been great about us up to date about the jailbreak progress…
Pod2g’s latest blog post provide more info about the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 jailbreak in the form of an FAQ.
How could pod2g have an untethered 4S and dev teams still haven’t released tools to achieve this at home ?
The exploit I used to inject the untethering files to the 4S relies on having a developer account, and can’t be released publicly.
It’s the same reason why @MuscleNerd has an iPad 2 tethered jailbreak but couldn’t distribute it.
So, we need to find a distributable exploit to remount the system partition read/write and to set Corona files at the correct places.
Why A4 version of Corona was easier to release?
Because a tethered jailbreak is a good way to install Corona!
Why don’t you do a tethered jailbreak then?
A tethered jailbreak also relies on an exploitable vulnerability that we still haven’t found yet!
pod2g, release this stuff quick, [your insult here], I’ve waited enough now.
If I could, I would!
Let’s hope he figures a way to make this upcoming jailbreak iPhone 4S and iPad 2 jailbreak publicly distributable. In the meanwhile, you can jailbreak iPhone 4, 3GS, iPad 1, iPod Touch 4G/3G running iOS 5.0.1 using RedSn0w and Corona:
