It appears that the untethered jailbreak for A5 devices will surely be a team work (effort) with saurik making some major contributions yesterday. Last week Pod2g announced that the Dream team, Planetbeing, MuscleNerd, and P0sixninja joined his effort to release an iPhone 4S and iPad 2 untethered jailbreak.
Today, the iPhone Dev Team member, MuscleNerd tweeted on his Twitter account and noted that he received a major contribution from Saurik.
props to @saurik for major contributions to the A5 version of @pod2g’s untether yesterday! (still no ETA, but moving forward)
Pod2g also thanked planetbeing for his help in escaping from the sandbox.
And greetings to @planetbeing for the coding + research. Really great stuff to escape from the sandbox.
Pod2g updated and has also addressed the request that the A5 untethered jailbreak be released to developers. Previously, he revealed that there is a working jailbreak that requires a developer account.
Sorry, we can’t release the A5 for the developers, the exploit used have to be kept secret. I know this is unfair.
