We’ve got some more good news on the iOS 5.1(.1) jailbreak front this afternoon. Pod2g just announced that his untethered exploit works on both first and second generation iPads, in addition to the newer model.

Earlier today, the hacker noted that the jailbreak should be available within the next couple of weeks. And that certainly seems to be the case, as he’s bound to be running out of devices to test it on…

In the past few weeks, pod2g has gone through several devices, confirming which ones will work with his iOS 5.1 jailbreak. The iPhone 4, and all three iPads are good. As is the iPhone 4S. But both the third-generation iPod touch and the iPhone 3GS seem to be out.

If nothing else, this is a good sign of progress. One of the many steps in creating a jailbreak is to test it across all available devices. Now that we’re coming to the end of that step, there shouldn’t be much left to do besides create the user-facing jailbreak tool.

And, if earlier tweets from pod2g and the Chronic Dev Team are to be believed, we could see that as early as next week.

  • I’m probably the only one pissed over this iPod touch 3G thing ๐Ÿ™

    • Anoush Khan

      I am also very pissed at this. After all, the iPod touch 3 is supported with iOS 5.1.1.

  • Wow. He’s plowing through this like a boss

  • sam

    Sweet! I’m looking forward to it!

  • If pod2g managed to jailbreak the iPod touch 3G, I bet he will change his name to pod3g

  • Just like toilet paper, he’s on a roll!

    Does it work for iPod Touch 4G?

  • I cant wait for this

  • Todd Young

    Going to donate to Pod2g upon the release, like last time. We need to support efforts like his, if the jailbreak community is going to continue to enjoy the benefits of an “opened” platform.

  • I wish he would have released a tethered jailbreak for the new iPad so developers could update and test their apps on it before the final release. I bet there will be a lot of tweaks that need retina updating and some just might not work and that would be a shame for those new jailbreakers.

      Im sure they will get it strait quick dont worry.

  • I just landed in amsterdam. Going to HITB. nah, Jk. Here in the good ole USA, just waiting for POD2G to release the greatness. YES, I also, contribute… With all the shit I buy, and crap apps that I spend a freaking dollar or more on, hell, I will drop a 20 to him… Donate to make him feel appreciated, we all appreciate what this guy does for us right? Well hell, if we all give the dude a dollar, he’d be sure to always know, every jailbreak he sends out to us, he will make some loot, and he would forever make it for us.. Unless you can do it yourself which doesn’t seem to happen. Lol. Donate is a plus.
