If you haven’t figured it out by now, this whole A5 jailbreak thing is kind of a big deal. The entire jailbreak community has its eyes on pod2g and the rest of the “Dream Team” as they finish up their work on the highly anticipated exploit.

iPhone 4S users are now going on three months without a jailbreak, and iPad 2 owners who upgraded to iOS 5 last summer are going on 7. But it looks like we won’t have to wait much longer, as pod2g says the A5 jailbreak is just days away…

The group has made some major progress over the last few days. Yesterday we reported that the hackers had finally cleared the sandbox, and resolved all major blocking issues. But we still had no idea when the jailbreak would finished.

Then today, pod2g posted this to his blog:

“Here are some news about the current work on the A5 research. @planetbeing escaped from the sandbox with the help of @saurik. Thanks to their awesome work, there should be nothing left blocking for the A5 jailbreak. Now it should be a matter of days. Still no precise ETA of course. We all want this to be finished ASAP, we’re getting tired!”

Of course, 100 things could still go wrong over the next few days to prevent the release. But we’re still excited. Make sure to keep checking back with iDB, as the A5 jailbreak could drop literally any day now. Great work guys.

        Most people would most likely not own iphones. And i think android would be a lot more popular and farther along then ios. If it wasnt for jailbreak devs, apple wouldnt have all the nifty little things it has right now. At least thats what i think. If i wasnt able to jailbreak my iphone for the past 4 years, i would have stopped buying them back in the iphone 3g days.

    • Tom

      I’m excited and I don’t even have a 4S or an iPad2!

      I’ve got a iPhone 4 which has been untethered since the day Corona was released.

    Hell yeah! Installous for my IPad 2….lol

  • hell yeah… Really.. I need my calendar on my lockscreen… Having an accessible calendar is the only thing I miss from android… You hear me apple?????

  • stoked!

  • While it will be nice to finally be able to jailbreak the 4s and Ipad 2 on 5.01 what I’m really looking forward to is that jb developers will have access to Siri and will hopefully be able to expand it’s use to other apps and add other tweaks to it. Cool beans!

  • iOS 5 A5 JAILBREAK is so much talked about more than the iOS 5 itself !!

    waiting 4 it eagerly !!

  • Im getting my 4S in 2 days, I wish it would time with the JB release
    Feeling so excited

  • the real question is will pod2g get sued or hired at apple before the iphone 6 is released? All the talent is being taken and i’m afraid apple is finally going to win the JB game…

  • 4s jailbreak 5.1
