The iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak now supports the iPod 3G and iPhone 3GS

By , May 18, 2012

Great news for those of you who own 3rd generation iPods and/or the iPhone 3GS — both devices have gained support for pod2g’s upcoming untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.1.1.

The reason these devices were initially excluded was because the kernel vulnerability used to accomplish the jailbreak on other devices didn’t appear to work on the iPod 3G and the iPhone 3GS.

Although the hacker hasn’t provided more details on how he was eventually able to verify that the jailbreak will be possible, he says he will update us with more details later.

Check inside for the updated list of devices that will be compatible for the 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak…

 

Devices that have been tested and guaranteed to work:

  • iPhone 4
  • iPhone 4S
  • iPad 1
  • iPad 2 Wifi
  • iPad 3 Wifi
  • iPad 3 CDMA
  • iPod 3G
  • iPod 4G

Devices that have yet to be tested, but should work:

  • iPhone 3GS
  • iPad 2 GSM
  • iPad 2 CDMA
  • iPad 2 Wifi, R2
  • iPad 3 Global
  • Apple TV 2

Devices that won’t work:

  • Apple TV 3

Be sure to stay tuned to iDB for the latest on the iOS 5.1.1 jailbreak situation, and be sure to visit pod2g’s blog to stay in touch with his ongoings.

    Great news indeed :)

    So again all of the devices will be supported except for ATV 3. I can’t wait to hold an iPhone 5 untetherd on iOS 6 in my hands :D

    Thank you so much for doing this for free @pod2g! Now my cousin can finally experience the power of jailbreaking.

    You placed iPhone 3Gs in the wrong category. Pod2g says in the above tweet that iPod 3G and iPhone 3Gs work.

    • http://www.youtube.com/myjailbreakmovies/ Jeff Benjamin

      Nope. Apparently the iPhone 3GS jailbreak has been confirmed to be possible, but not 100% tested. His blog still shows the list as I posted above, hence I will leave it that way until he updates it.

      He copied the list from @pod2g’s blog.

    i am kind of lazy updating from 5.0.1 to 5.1.1 altho i can jailbreak untethered. any big differences from it? updating need to re-install tweaks again….

      Battery improvements and lockscreen camera change.

    I would prefer support for ATV 3 instead of Support for 3G[S] and iPod touch 3G

  • http://twitter.com/FashionablyLana Lana Covington

    I really dnt see the point in them releasing a jailbreak right now when iOS 6 is coming out nxt month. It’s just pointless.

    • http://twitter.com/warrenskipper Warren Skipper

      I’m sure iOS 6 won’t be officially released until the new iPhone comes out in October (same as iOS 5 with the 4S last year). You’re talking about the beta version which will only go out to app makers and the like…

    What’s iPad 2 Wifi R2?

    • http://www.facebook.com/antman217 Anthony Antunez

      That is the new version of the iPad 2 that is being sold now after the new iPad came out. Apparently it has some hardware changes that Apple didn’t mention.

    Great news! I’m so exited, can’t barely wait :D Thanks Jeff for updating + thanks @pod2g for your work to bring us jailbreak :)

  • B Navarro

    I own an iPod Touch 3G, I was upset to hear that the Jailbreak would be incompatible with my model but now pod2g has found a way for the JB to work on iPod Touch 3G, Thanks pod2g!

    I will do it! I will feedback if it works or not. Thanks to pod2g.

  • http://twitter.com/13xavi131 13xavi13

    Pod2g will become so famous in the near future why? Because he is the only one who was able to jailbreak all iOS5 and he is willing to do this for free :) so he now #1 of jailbreak community for doing this :).

    hey guys im on tethered ios 5.1.1.. it is possible for me to update to untethered 5.1.1 when offficialy release? thanx

    • http://twitter.com/Mrarkon Lady Mrarkon

      Yeah. They should come out with a Corona release on Cydia and you’ll be able to untether your phone from there. You won’t have to restore or anything, it’s just like installing a normal Cydia tweak.

        Thank you!

  • David XAVIER

    If this is true this will mean that the 3gs will now become even more valuable than the i4 and i4s, they are still using the a4 cache hack on the 4 and 4s, all the 4 and 4s has got going for it now is the screen/camera

  • Anonymous

    There should be a poll for 3gs support being released later after A5 and A5X devices. Just like when Absinthe was released it only supported 4S on 5.0 and 5.0.1.. The world is waiting for the new iPad Jailbreak and 4S on 5.1 and 5.1.1. The last priority should be 3GS and i4′s eventhough it is still a good phone. Pod2g the survey says free the new ipads now!!!

  • UZMAN -

    if i have a tethered JB for 5.1.1, and i use cydia to install the untethered, will all my data be erased (sources/tweaks) or cydia just gets installed over?

  • RUDI ERWA

    How about iPad 2 Wifi 3G because it not in the list?

  • Wassim Omais

    I hope Apple doesnt get a new chip for the iPhone 5. That would be bad news.

  • Anonymous

    Does this mean that the JB is out yet or that he is still working on it and the JB tool will be released soon?

    Your fantastic Pod2G. I can’t wait to jailbreak my iPod 4g untethered. I have it tethered at the moment. I will finally be able to get rid of tethered. I love jailbraking. It’s brilliant that you are doing it for free as well.
