Hacker pod2g Updates iPhone 4S Untethered Jailbreak Status

By , Dec 19, 2011

For those of you waiting for an iPhone 4S untethered jailbreak, we’ve got good news and bad news.

The good news is that skilled hacker pod2g is working hard and making definite progress on an iPhone 4S untether. The bad news is that he’s hit a stumbling block on his way to finding a solution…

From pod2g’s blog:

The untether fails right now because I’m having processor cache issues.

I’m close, but I can’t figure out what happens. It certainly has something to do with the multicore cache management.

Update: pod2g has changed the “multicore cache management” statement to the below:

I’m close, but I can’t figure out what happens. It certainly has something to do with the Cortex-A9 cache management.

pod2g says he will have an updated status tomorrow, so there’s no doubt that he’s working mighty diligently to make the 4S untether happen as soon as possible.

As of now, there is no jailbreak — untethered or otherwise — for the iPhone 4S, but we presume it’s only a matter of time before it happens. If you can remember, it took a similar period of months before we had an iPad 2 jailbreak, and this appears to be a similar situation from a time perspective.

Are you optimistic that we could see the iPhone 4S jailbreak before the end of the year?

    He needs to look at the set flags for read and write and how they are handled by each processsor subroutine. When in a multiple processor enviroment unless the memory cache is specific to each processor the memory cache is generally shared unless for some reason Apple decided that dedicated memory cache would speed things up it really depends on the intent and style of the microcode programmer.

    and what about releasing an untethered for non-A5 devices meanwhile? 🙂 😛

    • Then he’d need to find a new exploit, because Apple will probably patch it before the 4S untether’s released.

    iphone 4s means also iPad 2 IOS 5.0.1 Jailbreak?

  • Thanks for your hard efforts on this, Pod2g!

  • Thanks :)) But I have an important question : which version of iOS is he trying to JB with iPhone 4S? iOS 5.0, iOS 5.0.1 (9A405) or iOS 5.0.1 (9A406) ? Right now I’m on 5.0. Shall I update to 5.0.1 (9A406) ?? I don’t want to miss the train and be ready for the untethered iPhone 4S JB. Thanks in advance for your guys clarifications :-)) IDownloadBlog really rocks! 😀

    • I would of thought both 5.0.1’s will be covered…the update was only for sim issues..as for 5.0 who knows ..I’am still on 5.0. And waiting for any news on which ios I should be on for this jailbreak..

  • I’ll get you the best coffee that i can make for you @pod2g, i know you work till late at ninght just to make us all happy

    I just want the iPhone 4 untethered JB. Wish he would release the A4 and A5 when ready (A4 being ready now!)

    • No because then Apple will patch the exploit before the one for A5 is ready/released.

  • Dan

    just give me a iPad 2 tethered and i’ll be happy

    Well I have given up already on iPhone 4S jailbreak. If I could wait up till now without jailbreak, I think I don’t need it anymore. One one I ever wanted just came my way like breeze. Tether. How apple did it I don’t know. But that one day approval was magic. So all I ever wanted for jailbreak is here for me.

  • Sorry to burst everyone’s bubble, but the jailbreak won’t be out by Christmas. You can count on that.

  • Hellll yeeaaaa props to ten a hOpefully will happen either way I’m happy for th work that he does for themselves and us

  • Jhonneri Munoz

    Nice to see that he’s giving us up to date information on the blog plus in a way I think he’s asking for help so all hackers should feel free to lend a hand it will benefit us all!!!

  • Lemme restore my jailbroken iPod Touch iOS 5.0.1… Wait, where’s my sync cable?
