If you are waiting like other jailbreaking entusiasts have been for has means almost arrived! here’s the video which has been uploaded by the well-known iPhone hacker and member of jailbreak community and it gives us the first look at the Untethered jailbreak for iOS 5. Get detailed info (video) after the break.
Most popular iOS hacker pod2g and discoverer of exploits – in the form of an update sent out from his Twitter account which links to an embedded YouTube video in which untethered jailbreak for iOS 5 is showcased.
Po2g is not only an iPhone hacker but also a well known member of Chronic Dev Team, today uploaded a video showing iOS 5 untethered jailbreak in action. Pod2g also showed his new discovered jailbreak exploit on his own iPod touch.
We have got no full details at all about this untethered jailbreak other than that infact that, well, it works on iOS 5 sucessfully (not on iOS 5.0.1 as yet) on an iPod touch. We’re not sure it will working on other, as of yet non-jailbroken devices like the iPad 2 and iPhone 4S but we wil, of cource, update you is we receive any relevant information.
As we all know that Pod2g announced that he has found a bug in the software that can untether iOS 5. After few days that, a very dangerous flaw in the security system for iOS was discovered by security researcher Charlie Miller which allowed any app to be remotely download and execute malicious, system-level code on an iPhone.
So, Apple to fix that security found by Miller has released iOS 5.0.1. Pod2g faily adviced iPhone users who rely on jailbreak to stay away from the 5.0.1 iOS update since the flaw makes iOS 5 jailbreak “severely easier”.
While Pod2g haven’t mentioned which exploit thius untethered jailbreak using, but this may just have something to do with a certain, bug he found on November 7th which he claimed could make untethered iOS 5.
This will change the world of Apple iOS users with the greatest benefit of an untethered jailbreak over a tethered one is that users can now restart their iOS devices into jailbroken state without having to connect to a PC. Until the Untethered jailbreak is released, enthusiasts will have to make do with Redsn0w or Sn0wbreeze. After that to make Semi-untethered, you should surely install the SemiTether package which allows you to reboot your device with limited functionality until can get access to a PC.
Here’s the catch – The video has been removed by the user and no one can be able to watch it right now. The reason may be the copyright issue from the Goog’s YouTube terms and condition, but there’s still there as the tweet on pod2g’s.
The video uploaded by pod2g has been embedded below for your viewing pleasure
We already mentioned that we have no hard deatils about how the jailbreak works and when it will be released, so, please be patient!
There’s currently no ETA for the jailbreak. Stay tuned, we’ll be back once we get a release date or download links. Besides this, stay away from iOS 5.0.1 if you plan on untethered-jailbreaking your iOS device.
