Important: Corona A5 Jailbreak Is Nearly Ready To Release [Dev Team Posts]
Corona A5 untethered jailbreak for the 4S iPhone and iPad second-gen is nearly ready to pop up, that’s what the dream team members have published as a blog post earlier today. Finally it will be able to theme your iPhone 4S and iPad 2 just in the way you want it. Also, you’ll be able to install useful jailbreak tweaks and add widgets for your iOS 5 notification center, similar to what you got in the A4 untethered jailbreak. Details on coming to be true after this jump!
Now the iPhone 4S jailbreak is being once again tested and polished, as well as with the iPad 2 untethered JB before release.
According to the Dream team member, Planetbeing in a note and tweeted on his Twitter account that it should not be much longer before the jailbreak gets released “not much longer now” and:
“We’re testing & fixing problems with the jb app (that @pimskeks finished the majority of at incredible speed). Still needs to be polished.”
The iPhone Dev Team member, MuscleNerd post confirms that the A5 untethered jailbreak to the public since its as bug free as possible, and that’s nearly ready to launch. The Dev Team posts: important information you need to know about the jailbreaking programs.
The A5 untethered jailbreak Windows and Mac OS X will come from the Chronic Dev Team, might be Greenpois0n. Anyhow, there are other methods to perform the jailbreak.
A post on the iPhone Dev-Team’s blog reveals that ‘all technical hurdles dealing with the underlying technique have been overcome, and that’s what all about now.
To be as flexible as possible, the A5 version of the corona jailbreak will take multiple forms:
* Chronic Dev have incorporated the overall flow into a GUI that runs on your Mac or PC. The goal is for the GUI to be enough for most cases.
* iPhone Dev have incorporated the exact same flow into a command-line interface (CLI). This will allow us to help users through individual steps of the jailbreak manually, to both help the user and help improve the overall flow. Although the CLI will also allow the user to perform the entire jailbreak from beginning to end, we anticipate it will be more useful in debugging the occasional errors. The CLI currently has over 20 individual options (in addition to the single “jailbreak” option) that should be useful during debug after the GUI release.
* Once all the bugs in the flow are worked out, we’ll also incorporate it into the redsn0w GUI (but still leave the CLI freely available too). In order to maximize the chances of the jailbreak working for everyone, the redsn0w GUI will use native Apple iTunes libraries — this technique is slightly different than how the Chronic Dev GUI handles communications, and should provide nice combined coverage for all the odd computer configurations out there.
The supported firmware versions will be:
Paypal Contributions :
Because there were so many different people and teams involved in the A5 corona release, we all felt the most equitable approach to any Paypal contributions should involve a single shared account. If you do feel the desire to contribute to the “dream team” Paypal account, it will be distributed to the members according to internally agreed-upon proportions The same link will be on both the Chronic Dev and iPhone Dev versions of the GUI. This method seemed like the fairest to everyone involved!
For those iPhone 4S owners hoping to unlock their devices:
iPhone4S owners looking to maximize their chances of achieving an eventual software-based carrier unlock should be staying at 5.0. Everyone else should be at 5.0.1. If you’re an iPhone4S owner who already updated to 5.0.1, it’s too late to go back down to 5.0, but if you’re on 9A406 it is possible to downgrade the BB by going to the 9A405 version of 5.0.1 while the window is still open.
iPhone 4S and iPad 2 users, now ready your devices!
The overall flow used by the GUI and CLI to inject the A5 corona jailbreak has never been done before, and there may be unforeseen problems once it’s released to the public. It’s very important for you to sync your data, photos, and music before attempting any version of this jailbreak.
