MuscleNerd from the iPhone Dev Team, Planetbeing a legendary hacker behind iPhone linux and p0sixninja the leader of the Chronic Dev Team have joined the pod2g’s jailbreak exploit for release.
Few hours ago, pod2g has posted a short FAQ session on why the A5 jailbreak (iPhone 4S & iPad 2) has not been released yet. The key reason being that the exploit used to inject the untethering files to the 4S relies on having a developer account. But now it can be possible to release untethered jailbreak of the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 soon. How? That’s what we are talking about!
From pod2g blog post:
The developer of iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak for A4 devices, pod2g announced that Planetbeing, MuscleNerd and P0sixninja have joined his effort to release iPhone 4S and iPad 2 untethered jailbreak.
@planetbeing, the legendary hacker behind iPhone Linux and lot of jailbreaks has joined the A5 research! The famous @MuscleNerd, the leader of the iPhone Dev Team, who did a lot of tests for Corona and whom integrated it and made it simple in redsn0w is willing to help also. And last, but not least @p0sixninja, the leader of the Chronic Dev Team, and my partner for years on iPhone security research has started to code and fuzz the Apple sandbox.
We now have a dream team to find a path for a public release of the A5 jailbreak. Cross your fingers.
With getting help from all these iPhone hackers and developers, pod2g is hoping to find a distributable exploit to remount the system partition read/write and to set Corona files at the correct places.
So, you and me and all A5 device owners such as iPhone 4S and iPad 2 will be able to jailbreak untethered on iOS 5.0.1 soon this week!
