We’ve seen 7 betas of iOS 5, iOS 5 GM, final release of iOS 5 and two betas of iOS 5.0.1 but we haven’t seen an iOS 5 untethered jailbreak yet. Only iOS 5 tethered jailbreak is currently available and that’s mean you’ll need to connect your iOS device every time it’s rebooted. However, iOS 5 semi untethered jailbreak was released two weeks ago closing the gap between the tethered and untethered jailbreak.
Today some news coming from pod2g about the iOS 5 untethered jailbreak. Pod2g, a member of the Chronic Dev Team, claims that he has discovered a hole that can untether iOS 5 jailbreak.
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.
We haven’t heard any news about what kind of exploits that jailbreak will be. It’s most likely going to be userland jailbreak like JailbreakMe jailbreak tool.
This bug discovered by Pod2g won’t jailbreak iPad 2 or iPhone 4S, instead, it will only convert iOS 5 tethered jailbreak into untethered one. iPhone 4S and iPad 2 jailbreak was discovered by the iPhone Dev Team few weeks ago.
The iOS 5 untethered jailbreak will not be released soon. Pod2g and other team members will be working hard to get it fully working on iOS 5.
