It has now been over 2 months since Apple released iOS 5 to the masses, and we still don’t have a working untethered jailbreak. The company has obviously made things a little more complicated for hackers.

But that doesn’t mean that it’s impossible, as infamous hacker pod2g continues to prove. The security expert has just uploaded a new video of an untethered jailbreak running on an iPhone 4, and has given a status update on its progress…

From pod2g’s blog post:

“Here is a new video demo of the current status of the iOS 5.0.1 jailbreak running on an iPhone 4. This is meant to reassure people that were thinking it only works on older iPods. The jailbreak is near ready for prime time (excluding 4S and iPad 2). Patches are the same as redsn0w’s. Expect the same level of stability. Some more days to wait. Be patient, we’re doing our best.”

Unless you are looking to jailbreak your iPhone 4S or iPad 2, this is great news. We’ll try not to read too much into the “near ready for primetime” comment, but we are getting the feeling that it’s close.

Be sure to keep checking back with iDB this week for the latest news regarding the iOS 5 untethered jailbreak.

    Damn….. excluding iphone 4s and ipad 2…..

      iPhone 4S and iPad 2 are not and never will be “excluded”!lol

      Just much closer to the iPhone 4 iOS 5 untether then they are iP4S untether,

      They are both being worked on, just more progress with A4 devices because they are more familiar with them.

      The 4S & iPad2 Jailbreak will be here, so rest assured.

      Just a little harder to crack then the A4 devices.

      There is no exclusion going on here. none at all. Well, maybe except for devices that cant run on iOS 5 I guess. (iPhone 2G,3G & iPod Touch 2G)

      Those devices will be excluded only because they cannot run iOS 5.lol

  • First time comment…wow great.

  • This is wonderful! Thank you!

    Just because there isn’t a video featuring the iPad 2 and the iPhone 4S doesn’t mean that the jailbreak isn’t supported. We all know that the jailbreak works on A5 devices too. Did everyone forget about the “problems” with the iPhone 4S untether? It’s fixed now and even when it isn’t fixed, we know that the jailbreak WILL work on the iPhone 4S and the iPad 2 because the exploit is not like the limera1n exploit.

    • how do we know this? everything i have seen says there is no 4S jailbreak.

  • I wanted my 4S jailbreak 🙁

  • thanks for de hardwork… really hope de jailbreak can come out before 2012

  • Wow, 50 seconds to start again??

    • are you seriously bitching about waiting 50 secs?

      • No dude, I’ve just did a comment without bitching …

  • Wow, 50 seconds to start again??

  • Still have my fingers crossed for a 4S jb to be released sometime over the holidays…already planning on what tweaks to put on my phone during my time off. Btw, I’m wondering if all the Cydia apps need to be updated for the A5? More waiting perhaps?

  • wtf i have an iphone 4s!!!!

  • wtf i have an iphone 4s!!!!

  • ohhhh very good

    Great job pod2G. Take as long as you need to make it work. I don’t mind waiting longer for the untethered jailbreak so those with iPad 2 and iPhone 4S will also get their chance at a jailbreak also.

  • Yeah take ur time and keep the good job 🙂

  • thank,s

  • Very good job but if I do shut down the cydia doesn’t work proper.

    O gotta say, seeing anymore videos of the untether for iOS 5 is not what I’m looking for.lol.

    I already know its done…………………Just want it to come out already.lol.

    However I completely trust that @Pod2g will choose the proper time for release.

    Anything to stop Crapple from grabbing the Exploit rite away………………….even waiting a lil’ longer.lol.

    At least I got my semi tether…….. Tho I wish the SemiTether package would be fixed to protect my widgets so I can install it.lol,

    Til’ then, a regular semi tether JB will have to do.

    this jailbreak “WILL NOT WORK”on iPhone 4S. You must have clearly “misunderstood” his Blog.

    At this moment, the jailbreaks are separate. But who knows, maybe the iOS 5 untether won’t even be out until the 4S untether is ready, and will engrave that key to iP4 untether, so only one tool will jailbreak A4 & A5 devices………………………………….But I highly doubt this. very very highly, because there is a hardware exploit for A4 devices, but not A5…………………that fact alone says there will be 2 different tools, or one tool with both functionality. But the iP4 JB function will not work on iP4S. If it does come out in one tool, It will still be 2 different jailbreaks. Has to be. Wouldn’t make any sense (hardware wise) for it to be otherwise.lol
