pod2g has been working feverishly to give us an untethered jailbreak for the iPhone 4S and iPad 2. While the untether for A4-based iOS devices and older on iOS 5.0.1 has already been released, the A5 untether has yet to see the light of day.

Now, pod2g has listed 3 legendary jailbreak hackers, planetbeing, MuscleNerd, and p0sixninja, to help him with the A5 jailbreak for iOS 5:

@planetbeing, the legendary hacker behind iPhone Linux and lot of jailbreaks (http://theiphonewiki.com/wiki/index.php?title=User:Planetbeing) has joined the A5 research!

The famous @MuscleNerd (http://theiphonewiki.com/wiki/index.php?title=User:MuscleNerd), the leader of the iPhone Dev Team, who did a lot of tests for Corona and whom integrated it and made it simple in redsn0w is willing to help also.

And last, but not least @p0sixninja (http://theiphonewiki.com/wiki/index.php?title=User:Posixninja), the leader of the Chronic Dev Team, and my partner for years on iPhone security research has started to code and fuzz the Apple sandbox.

As pod2g says on his blog, he now has a “dream team” to help him test and release the A5 untethered jailbreak available for the public.

    The epic battle between pod2g’s team and Apple can be made into a game, movie, book, whatever, you name it!

      Your not wrong there after all they made a movie about Facebook

    • Thanks to your noble works gentlemen. You made us asking ourselves: Who are Geohot and Comex? Just remember, there is always someone out there with same or better skills or talents. Please do not let greed destroy us all.

  • Keep it up Pod2g. Your the MAN!!!

  • i worry that this delays things considerably. but hey, we’ve waited this long…a little longer won’t hurt. look how long it took to get the first ipad 2 JB out there.

    thanks for the hard work fellas!

      I don’t think it will delay things at all. :S
      He’s got the “A-listers” of the jailbreak community working with him.
      This going to do nothing but help him finish things quicker.

    4 hackers, 2 are alone :p and two are leaders of great teams.

    • planetbeing is part of iphone dev team. (even though he’s now developer of Intelliborn)

  • great news!

  • sylvan feghali

    Let’s do it Heroes !

    not that I don’t appreciate all the work they do, but this seem contradictory.

    He said recently that it would be ready next week, then he says he has problems since we would need dev accounts, and now he enlists others for help.

    Are things going as scheduled or not?

    • again…he said “with any luck”. so that leaves the door open for a longer delay which is fine. again, this stuff is free and by no means a right…it’s a privileged.

      • Dan

        I think you’re taking what I said the wrong way.

        I do realize that they are doing this for free and I appreciate it greatly. It just seems that we’ve been getting mixed signals for a while. Personally I would prefer realistic statements. It’s like when they said the untethered jailbreak was ready for 5.0 and we got it months later.

        anyways, they can do what they want, just gonna take the updates a bit less seriously 🙂

        Especially over musclenerd’s empty promises others had stated.

  • Siv

    In other words, no 4S jailbreak next week.

  • What is up with some of these people. Be patient….damn

      I need it now! I need it now! You lazy good for nothing devs, I need it now!

      I am too busy popping pimples and playing xBox to figure out how to jailbreak my own device, or tweak my own springboard. You owe me a jailbreak, and your not doing it fast enough. I need installous and Xcellize cause I don’t have a job and my dad quit giving me money.

      Damn it…. Mom, I don’t have any clean socks and all the captain crunch is gone.

  • jay jimenez

    Hopefully its out soon! Iphone seems like a regular phone without a jailbrake.

    It aint the Dream Team without GeoHot and Comex.

  • jay jimenez

    At least is the next best thing .

  • Anonymous

    It’s not THE best job, but it would be really cool for me to be like them in a not so far future.

    And how old is pod2g anyway?

  • Thanks to your noble works gentlemen. You made us asking ourselves: Who are Geohot and Comex? Just remember, there is always someone out there with same or better skills or talents. Please do not let greed destroy us all.

  • More like the A-Team, pod2g as Colonel John “Hannibal” Smith musclenerd as B.A., Baracus, p0sixninja as Templeton “Faceman” Peck, and planetbeing as Murdoch. Let’s hope the plan comes together.

  • Christian Campana-Emard

    Dang, I hope they really get this jailbreak to release soon. They’ve been working so hard just to give us a FREE jailbreak. I always wonder to myself: why do they do this? Especially anonymously!

    • Panayiotis Philippou

      They are also making some money from the cydia store!

  • Awesome news!
