pod2g Enlists Chronic Dev Team’s Help to Expedite Untethered Jailbreaks

By Jeff Benjamin on Dec 22, 2011

pod2g has handed over the keys to his iOS 5 untethered jailbreak for A4 devices (which includes the iPhone 4) to the Chronic Dev Team. In doing so, he hopes to focus primarily on the A5 jailbreak, which covers the iPhone 4S and iPad 2.

Since the untethered jailbreak for pre-A5 chip devices is basically finished, this will allow pod2g to get the iPhone 4S jailbreak back up to speed. This is very good news for owners of both A4 and A5 devices, because that means that both are being heavily worked on simultaneously… Read More

By Cody Lee on Nov 27, 2011

We are now going on two months (five, if you were using developer betas) since Apple released iOS 5, and we still don’t have a viable jailbreak. There have been tethered and semi-tethered solutions available, but not an untethered jailbreak tool.

i0n1c Confirms iOS 5 Untether is “Covered”

By Cody Lee on Oct 9, 2011

With iOS 5 scheduled to drop this Wednesday, the question in the back of everyone’s mind (at least here at iDB anyways) is when will it be fully jailbroken? A tethered jailbreak is already available for the new software, but it’s just not the same.

A tethered jailbreak is inconvenient, it means you have to reconnect your iDevice to your computer after every restart. Luckily it sounds like we won’t have to wait long for an untether to hit web, as i0n1c has confirmed it’s being handled… Read More
