Hacker “Dream Team” Makes Significant Progress on iPhone 4S Jailbreak

By , Jan 10, 2012

The dream team of p0sixninja, MuscleNerd, planetbeing, and pod2g have made more progress on the iPhone 4S untether, according to a tweet from pod2g this morning.ย pod2g also extended out special thanks to saurik for his major contributions to the long-awaited project.

It looks like the team has overcome one of the last major hurdles in preparing the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 untethered jailbreak for public distribution…

The latest stumbling block involved difficulties with sandboxing, but those issues are no more as pod2g tweeted this morning:

Now that the team has escaped the sandbox, they should be on the home stretch when it comes to packaging and releasing the jailbreak, although they acknowledge that there’s still no ETA:

Sad news for developers hoping to get their hands on the iPhone 4S untethered jailbreak early for testing tweak compatibility:

We can certainly understand where pod2g is coming from, seeing as someone leaked Comex’s 4.3.3 exploit prior to him releasing it. Be patient guys. They team indicated that it would come this week, and I’d say the likelihood of that is still high.

    Nice!!! It feels like its been so long since I’ve had a jailbreak. It will feel like a new phone. I’m hopping it still comes out this week.

  • I’ve had a iPhone 4S for over a month, I’m so excited to finally use it. Will donate once it’s released. I’m currently using a broken iPhone 4, the recipient can’t hear me 80% of time when I make phone calls, but it works 100% fine on VOIP services. Weird issue, but a jailbreak is far more important to me. Which is weird too, I know. :I

  • F****** ages… What will happen to the iPhone 5 etc.?

    • Haven’t you been following the rumors? iPhone 5 has been cancelled.

      • HAHA very funny…

        I meant what will happen with the jailbreak when any new iDevice will come up? I’ve had my iPhone 4S since they day it came out. That’s nearly 3 months! 3 months without jailbreak! Do you get it? iOS without a jailbreak is shit! Two different things!

      • Old Chinese Proverbs: Waiting makes the heart grow fonder. All good things come to those who wait. Three months without a jailbreak never killed anyone. You chose to buy an unjailbreakable iPhone no wong put a gun to your head to make that purchase. Do you get it? Chill dude, untethered jailbreak coming your way very soon.

  • F****** ages… What will happen to the iPhone 5 etc.?

  • *DANCES* I have been without a jb since my iphone 3GS died in August. X_X

    The worst part about this whole thing is reading these blogs every morning hoping there’s a small chance that you’ll read “A5 Untethered Jailbreak Released!” yet I’m disappointed everytime. I know the “dream team” is working very hard at this, and greatly appreciate all the work they’re doing BUT being an impatient man that I am, this is killing me! Ya feel me!?

  • Thank you to all the members of the “dream team ” for your continuing hard work and dedication for this jailbreak ,it will be well worth the wait !!

  • iamlynda

    Great job Dream Team!! Keep the great news coming!! Fingers crossed for sooner rather than later. just updated the iOS on my previously jailbroken iPad2 so lost all my cool tweaks – really don’t even care to look at the pad now. and to finally be able to jb my 4S – I can hardly wait!!

  • How am I passing my time? I am obviously checking iDb & Twitter far too often to see the progress of the geniuses behind the upcoming JB. It is similar to the feeling you have in the weeks prior to Christmas when you are 5 & been told “You are going to receive a special gift!”. You simply think about what that special gift is…& your mind wanders to many interesting places. Keep up the great work Dream Team…& iDb!! Thanks.

    Great work.

  • GREAT JOB !!!

  • Panayiotis Philippou

    Cydia must consider upgrading their servers before the JB release!!

  • I’m ready blood!!!!!

  • I’ll pass my time with my Apple TV and aTVflash (black) …;-) thanks iDB…

    • Is there anything significantly different between aTVflash and XBMC? I just isntalled XBMC the other dayโ€ฆ

      • Anonymous

        XBMC is ridiculously slow and unresponsive on the ATV2, and it seems to get worse rather than better over time. ATVFlash is much more lightweight and is tightly integrated with FrontRow.

      • Which is also reflective of the price issue though lol. Is it pretty much installed the same way?

  • btw could anybody explain to me what is Corona? its a name of company or the jailbreak file name?

    • it’s a file found in Cydia for those who were running a Tethered Jailbreak on iOS 5.0.1. Once downloaded it’s supposed to make your tethered Jailbreak Untethered. i would still recommend using redsn0w tho. i’ve heard it works better

  • Once this jailbreak drops, all those millions of people with A5 devices will make jailbreak developers tons of money buying their cydia apps/tweaks. Sooner the jailbreak, the sooner y’all can get that moneyโ€ฆ lol

  • Without jailbreak ma life is fucked up ๐Ÿ™

      maybe u need another hobby lol

  • Wow, they’ve got a logo now?

    Man ive been patient, My iPhone 4s is still sitting in my closest, I tried using it for a day without a jailbreak and I couldnt do it. My work email requires I have a passcode which I cant stand, I use a jailbreak tool so I dont need to have the code, plus lock info, sbsetting, installous!

    • Hey,
      my work also forces the passcode, this is really annoying.
      Which tool you used to bypass the forced passcode?

      I googled but couldnt find anything.

      Thanks!

    explain to me why they started to seriously tackle the A5 jailbreak only after the 4s?I mean the A5 has been around for almost a year with the ipad2. is jail breaking iPhone based? aren’t there iPad tweaks and jb apps?

    • Dan

      good question

  • Although i do not possess an iPhone 4S, i’m only anxious because with the 4S jailbroken, a properly working Siri Port for my iPod 4G (One that doesn’t need those fucking keys) can be dev’d, and custom Siri tweaks are indeed interesting, like Offline Siri for offline commands and such.
