As if someone won from a lottery game after @planetbeing and @pod2g announced a couple of hours ago simply implying that they’re back in business to finish what should have been released last week – the untethered jailbreak for A5 or iOS 5 iDevices such as the iPhone 4S and iPad 2. There are so many iPhone 4S and iPad 2 users were waiting for the untethered jailbreak release for their devices. Unfortunately, last week they had some difficulties to progress because they were facing a sandbox issue. At that same week, I saw an updated information from @pod2g’s blog that almost all of the known iPhone unlockers/jailbreakers joined his crusade to come up with an untethered jailbreak for A5 devices. Some of the well-known Apple jailbreakers whose names came out were @planetbeing (an icon already in the world of jailbreaking and was also known for his work last 2007 when he released iPod Touch jailbreak), @MuscleNerd of iPhone Dev Team (redsn0w), and @p0sixninja of Chronic Dev Team.
So with this powerful team, if everything goes well then we should expect the release of the latest untethered jailbreak for iOS 5 or A5 devices like iPhone 4S and iPad 2 not later than next week. Although @pod2g is not promising any ETA as to when they would be able to release the jailbreak in public – let us just cross our fingers.
One important note for those who have plans to jailbreak their iPhone 4S and/or iPad 2 – DO NOT update your iDevice further than iOS 5.0.1 otherwise this release is not for you.
