There is finally some good news for users who want an untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.
iPhone hacker pod2g of the Chronic Dev Team has just announced that he has discovered a bug in iOS 5 that could help in developing an untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.
pod2g announced the discovery of the bug via the following tweet:
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 not clear whether the bug also exists in iOS 5.0.1 beta that Apple has seeded to developers of iOS developer program. pod2g also hasn’t mentioned if the untethered jailbreak will work on iPad 2 and iPhone 4S.

Apple is reportedly testing a build of iOS 5 which includes Siri support for the iPhone 4, according to JailbreakNation.
Today, we have a very interesting bit of news, tipped to us by a source close to Apple. According to them, Apple is testing Siri on devices other than the iPhone 4S. The device specifically mentioned to us was the iPhone 4, but we can most likely assume that other devices are being tested as well. This means that we will potentially see a software update that allows Siri to run on older devices.
