Last week, pod2g announced he had managed to jailbreak the iPhone 4 untethered on iOS 5.1. Pod2g has now announced the successful untethered jailbreak of the iPad 3 on iOS 5.1. Up next, he will try to jailbreak on iOS 5.1.1.
Pod2g, one of the most influential members of the Cydia community, has revealed that he today managed to jailbreak his iPhone 4 untethered on iOS 5.1.
During the last couple of weeks of 2011, and subsequently the first few weeks of this year, iOS users were treated to two fantastic jailbreaks in the form of Corona – which catered to the older, A4 devices – and Absinthe, which followed on with an untethered solution for the dual-core iPad 2 and iPhone 4S devices.
Apple pushed out iOS 5.1 along with the release of the new iPad earlier this month, One of the additions that Tim Cook and his team talked about is the fact that they have removed the option to double tap the Home button on the lockscreen to display a camera shortcut button in favor of permanently displaying a camera icon that reacts to a swipe up gesture.
Well, it looks like we didn’t have to wait long for that iOS 5.1 update promised for today. The update is already rolling out to iPhones, iPads and compatible iPod touches. That brings with it a number of improvements and bug fixes, including the previously-announced Japanese language support for Siri, a redesigned camera app for iPad, the ability to delete individual photos from Photo Stream and, somewhat curiously, an “updated AT&T network indicator.” What’s more, as previously rumored, the camera shortcut is now also always visible on the lock screen for iPhone and iPod touch users.
We’re live from Apple’s event in San Francisco where Tim Cook has just announced additional language capabilities for Siri. That disembodied helper, ushered in by the iPhone 4S, is now getting a localized Japanese equivalent as part of the iOS 5.1 update rolling out today and slated to hit Japan over the next few weeks. Looks like those prior leaks were right on the money. Now we’ll just have to wait and see if that camera slider makes the cut.
