Hot on the heels of MuscleNerd’s status update on the iPhone 4S jailbreak, a short video of the iPad 2 has surfaced showing the tablet jailbroken and running Cydia on iOS 5.

No ETA has been given for the iOS 5 untethered jailbreak, but we can only assume that a jailbreak will be released for all devices at once, meaning that you’ll be able to jailbreak A5 devices like the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 as well as older generation iDevices…

Remember, the Chronic Dev Team is still working on a jailbreak, too. It’s not a race to see who finishes first, but we have to congratulate MuscleNerd and the Dev Team for making such progress.

We’ll let you know when more develops. In the meantime, don’t believe anything you see about an untethered iOS 5 jailbreak unless it’s from a trusted source.

    +2 yes

  • Manuel

    I don’t know why they both don’t just work together to speed things up for those who really desire a jailbreak instead of making it a longer process. Or at least that’s how I see it.

  • MrMBerman

    Will the first A5 iOS5 Jailbreak be just tethered? My guess is yes.

    • kokhean

      Isn’t the untether exploit already coded?

  • Manuel

    I mean chronic and the dev team by the way. They should just work together and get things moving or should we just call geohot to do it again?

  • kokhean

    Is is the A5 exploit? Because if it isn’t, the jailbreak’s going to be patched in one single update.

    • Hello elgin! There will be no untethered jailbreak for ios 4.3.5 coming out, but I can help you. Use sn0wbreeze 2.8beta8 to gety a modified ipsw (for ios5). That will be the one to be used on iTunes 10.5 when upgrading to ios5.
      If you need help, Im in Manila. You can find me at UDMC, Capitol or MCU Hospitals. Leave your reply on this if you are interested.

  • elgin

    i cant also downgrade it…bec there’s no shsh…dev team i know you will release an untethered for ios 4.3.5…i hope you release it asap…so i can enjoy my iphone…huhuhu

      I doubt very much you’ll get 1, why would they release 1 for that firmware when every1, well almost every1 is on jailbreakable 1’s that are untethered, it’s completely pointless to waste an exploit on an old firmware.

      What irritates me is the amount of people who say they can’t enjoy their iPhone unless it’s jailbroke or unlocked, why the fuck do you buy 1 in the first place if you hate it so much without a jailbreak, especially when you rely on shit like Gevey to be able to use it, if I hated my iPhone without a jailbreak I would never have bought 1 in the first place just to moan about the lack of a jailbreak !!

        well maybe some people already know the jailbreak thing before they bought iphone..they already expected that iphone can be jailbreak that’s why they bought it..but too bad apple increase there security in ther new IOS update and preventing IOS downgrade to prevent jailbroke.just like me..the reason i bought ipad because i knew that ipad can be jailbreak..for now i can say that i cant enjoy my ipad coz it’s boring..but i still wait of the realease of jailbreak for IOS 5 no matter how long it is..and i don’t regret i bought this..we just need patience to wait till the right jailbreak comes out..good work to all jailbreak developer..^_^ v

      • Dan

        well when I bought mine I already knew about all the jailbreak features, which was why I bought it. After years of being jailbroken, I just can’t go back lol

    • junex

      well i suggest to update your 4.3.5 to IOS 5..there’s no luck on releasing untethered jailbreak on IOS 4.3.5 coz IOS 5 already released.the jailbreak developer is focusing now on IOS 5.there’s no luck to go back to 4.3.5..besides you’ll gonna enjoy the new features of IOS 5 than 4.3.5..

  • Tbv

    There will not be an untethered JB for 4.3.5. The hackers are concentrating on IOS 5.0 untethered JB. You can use Sn0wbreeze and go to 5.0 while preserve your 4.10.01 BB to use the Gevey Sim on.

    Hi Jeff.
    Do you know when we can expect a untethered jailbreak for IOS5?

  • iamlynda

    YAY!!! Can’t wait!! Love my 4S but I’ll love it even more once it’s jailbroken and I have all my fac jb apps back on. Still haven’t upgraded my iPad2, I’m still on 4.3 I think – didn’t want to lose my fav iPad jb app splitscreen for email

  • Damian

    Great work by the dev team.

  • novzulu
