iPhone Dev Team leader MuscleNerd has again taken to his Twitter timeline to let his followers and jailbreak enthusiasts know about the intimate details of the iOS 5.1.1 untether.
The majority of the offered information relates to the behind-the-scene events that have been happening throughout the production of the jailbreak, and although it isn’t relevant to the usage of the new tools, it is extremely interesting and worth knowing.
All devices capable of running iOS 5.1.1 will be covered by the jailbreak when it is released, with the exception of the third-generation Apple TV which currently has no path available for jailbreaking. So yes, if you don’t rely on an unlock, you are safe to update your iOS device to the latest iOS 5.1.1 today.
MuscleNerd revealed Legendary developer Planetbeing stepped in to save the day for iPod 3,1 and iPhone 2,1 users after the initial kernel exploit that was discovered by westbaer precluded those devices.
The released information gives insight into the tools that will be available to users. The Absinthe tool will be updated with the latest files and exploits, but it has also become apparent that Redsn0w will be updated with the jailbreak plus untether as well as a new command line interface tool.
MuscleNerd finishes off his ‘Quick info sheet’ by confirming that they are hoping to push out the jailbreak by the end of this week, but as always this shouldn’t be taken as gospel as there are a number of things that can affect the release. Finally, a note about users pirating App Store apps is found at the end of the text, something that we know the iPhone Dev Team feel strongly about, as do we.
