iOS Developer pod2g Finds Bug To Untether iOS 5
Are you an iOS 5 user and have been waiting dreadfully for an untethered jailbreak for your iDevice? Well there’s good news for you- @pod2g, iPhone hacker of the ex-Chronic Dev Team announced that a bug has been discovered in iOS 5 and could help towards an untethered jailbreak.
@pod2g tweeted officially on November 7th:
Hey jailbreaking friends, I’ve found a bug that can untether iOS 5. Don’t expect a release soon, but I’m gonna work hard in it.
It is unclear whether the untethered jailbreak will work on the iPad 2 and the iPhone 4S or if the bug exists in iOS 5.0.1 beta either. But as of right now, Redsn0w and Sn0wbreeze released by iPhone Dev Team and iH8sn0w have tethered jailbreaks for iOS 5.0 and iOS 5.0.1 betas only. BigBoss also released a SemiTether jailbreak (which has limitations) that lets users reboot their jailbroken devices without connecting it to a computer. With all these tethered and semi-tethered jailbreaks, STILL nothing beats a fully untethered one that everyone is anticipating for.
When will the untethered jailbreak be released? @pod2g has not provided an ETA, but it will hopefully be released after iOS 5.0.1 is released.
