We’ve been waiting for months to see evidence that an untethered jailbreak for iOS 5 is indeed ready for prime time, and pod2g of the Chronic Dev Team has just released a demo video of the iOS 5 untether to wet our appetites.

The simple video indicates that the highly-anticipated jailbreak is nearly ready. However, we don’t have an exact ETA on when it will arrive.

Refer to our last state of the jailbreak post to learn everything you need to know about the iOS 5 jailbreak. The Chronic Dev Team recently introduced a tool for jailbreakers to use that indirectly helps find exploits for an untether. Both the Dev and Chronic Dev teams are working to bring us the iOS 5 jailbreak that we’ve all been waiting for.

  • Will I be able to untether with iOS 5.0.1? =/

    • Jobran

      not with this tool.

      • Joshua Rawlings

        wrong…. thanks so much for chiming in though

      • Jobran

        yep, in his first tweet it wasn’t clear, and my reply was before pod2g said that it’s gonna work on 5.0.1 as well.. i relied on his older posts saying he will use miller’s security flaw.

    • JT

      Just a heads up, on his Twitter page i0n1c said “It seems the current untether of @pod2g does rely on @0xcharlie’s code signing vulnerability. If true it will require major rework for 5.0.1”

      pod2g responded saying “hello. No it does not rely on it. Next step do the same on iOS 5.0.1. Should be quick.”

      • Yes!!! Thanks so much!

        I hope this is true 🙂

    • whot about iphone 4s and ipad 2????

      • Érico Gonçalves

        i dont think this is for us…

    • Yes. It Will. Just Confirmed

  • iphone 3gs on video?

  • Awesome news! Springtomize 2 has been causing some crashes since I installed (hopefully the update i downloaded this morning resolves it) and it has been very tedious having to find a computer to boot a few times. Seems to always crash when i am no where near a computer >.< lol

    • Dan

      same here man, bought the tweak, phone started to crash, then developer told me it was not his app and ignored me afterwards.

      Almost wish I had pirated the damn thing, least I wouldn’t of paid for garbage.

      • Well looks like he owned up to it. Patch notes on latest update says he fixed issues with springboard crashing so fingers crossed i can go a day without a crash >.<

      • and just had a random crash again. Man I hope this comes soon v.v

  • good thing I’m still on iOS 5.0 . :))

  • Dan

    good thing I’m still on OS5.0 … but more importantly, iPad 2????

    This would be the perfect Christmas gift!

    • Nope..in semitethered mode,you can’t launch Cydia after restart

      • Anonymous

        thats what L-mar Abbasov said 😉

  • Kent Lee

    why he is using iPod 3G instead ?

  • Does it matter what kind of device he is using?! No it doesnt all it matters is the version he is on which is ios 5.0!!

    • Anonymous

      Yes it actually does, if your using a device with old bootrom like the 3GS I had, ou are able to have an Untethered 3GS Jailbreak. I was running 5.0.1 Untethered and Unlocked

  • Follow his twitter, says that he doesn’t own a 4s or ipad 2 but will test when complete..

  • PLEASE HELP!!! my phone died,after boot tethered none of my jb tweaks work or show in settings but are still installed.. Any ideas why? Thanks HELP!!!

      Try a respring.

      • An settings isn’t working either.. Won’t let me respring in the app icon

  • Anonymous

    for the lucky ones (like me ;-p), you can already have untethered iOS 5 jailbreak if your 3GS has the old bootroom!

    • How do you know what bootrom u have I have a 3GS on 5.0 I didn’t even know there was A jailbreak for it?!

  • sorry everybody but is there any update on ultrasn0w for 5.0.1 because i downgraded to 4.3.3 and i use ultrasn0w to unlock my 1.59.00 on iPhone 4 OR a fix because i don’t want to get left behind … thanks anyway
