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.
Pod2g has posted a photo confirming the successful untethered jailbreak of the iPad 2 on iOS 5.0.1.
Yesterday, pod2g posted a video made by DHowett showing the successful untethered jailbreak of the iPhone 4S on iOS 5.0.1.
Pod2g has just tweeted some interesting information regarding the A5 jailbreak. Apparently, pod2g has made good progress on the jailbreak for A5 devices and claims that if lucky, we could expect it in a week!
Pod2g has resolved the cache troubles with the iPhone 4S untethered jailbreak, according to a new progress update.
OK, figured it out, the A5 cache is not a problem anymore. I sorted it out by doing the untether in a single thread and by flushing all the dcache then all the icache in a row at a strategical point of the process. It took me like a hundred of tests to find the key. Hard for the nerves.
For the tech guys, here is a link explaining issues related to self modifying code ( or code patching ) on the ARM platform : http://blogs.arm.com/software-enablemen … ying-code/
Another news : I discussed with @saurik today about the launchd boot process, and he’s found one missing piece of the puzzle I needed to have a perfectly stable jailbreak. He’s definitly one of the best iOS gurus out there. Thank you saurik!
Pod2g has successfully implemented an untethered jailbreak of iOS 5, as this video demonstrates.
In earlier November, pod2g announced that he had found a bug that would be able to untether iOS 5.
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 appears that his work has paid off; however, the untethered jailbreak isn’t compatible with the iPhone 4S or iPad 2 just yet.
Tons of questions from my nice followers. Too early to answer. Will work on iOS 5.0.1, will try iPad 2 and 4S after others are ready.
But… I don’t own a 4S nor I an iPad 2.
