pod2g, the hacker behind Untethered iOS 5.0.1 jailbreak, is working feverishly to bring us the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 Untethered jailbreak. Pod2G posts an update on his blog revealing that the planetbeing, MuscleNerd, and p0sixninja are now helping him in achieving the A5 untethered jailbreak.
This is what he posted on his blog:
@planetbeing, the legendary hacker behind iPhone Linux and lot of jailbreaks (see http://theiphonewiki.com/wiki/index.php?title=User:Planetbeing) has joined the A5 research!
The famous @MuscleNerd (http://theiphonewiki.com/wiki/index.php?title=User:MuscleNerd), the leader of the iPhone Dev Team, who did a lot of tests for Corona and whom integrated it and made it simple in redsn0w is willing to help also.
And last, but not least @p0sixninja (http://theiphonewiki.com/wiki/index.php?title=User:Posixninja), the leader of the Chronic Dev Team, and my partner for years on iPhone security research has started to code and fuzz the Apple sandbox.
We now have a dream team to find a path for a public release of the A5 jailbreak.
Cross your fingers.
While the untethered jailbreak for iPhone 4, 3GS, iPad 1 and iPod Touch 4G/3G is already out in the form of RedSn0w and Corona 5.0.1 untether, the jailbreak “Dream Team” is on to the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 Jailbreak. With such awesome hackers working together on an untethered jailbreak, it won’t be surprising that the untethered jailbreak for iPad 2 and jailbreak iPhone 4S will soon see the light of day.
Before this Pod2G posted iPhone 4S and iPad 2 Untethered Jailbreak – FAQ explaining that the exploit currently requires Developers account so could not be released publicly.
