A couple days ago, pod2g shared with us the video of a jailbroken iPhone 4S. What could be considered as a tease is actually a way to keep us updated about the progress of the various teams working on the jailbreak.
Today, pod2g teased us a little more by posting the image of a jailbroken iPad 2 running iOS 5.0.1 on his blog…
A few days ago we told you that pod2g and his fellow hackers were getting close to completing an untethered jailbreak for A5 devices. This includes both the iPad 2 and the iPhone 4S.
While we still don’t have an exact release date, pod2g did give us something to wet our appetites. The hacker has just posted a video to his blog of an untethered jailbreak running on Apple’s latest handset…
After months of waiting, an untethered jailbreak compatible with iOS 5 was finally released in late December. Although it doesn’t work with A5 devices, the exploit is effective on a number of products, including both the iPad and the iPhone 4.
But it doesn’t look like it will be that way for much longer. Multiple jailbreak developers are reporting that Apple has patched the Corona exploit, used in the untethered jailbreak, in the latest version of its mobile operating system iOS 5.1…
If you’ve been paying attention to the jailbreak scene lately, then you’ve heard the warnings about preparing for Apple’s next counter move against jailbreakers. The question is this: have you heeded it?
It’s imperative that you update to iOS 5.0.1 now and save your SHSH blobs across all devices, including the iPhone 4S and iPad 2. That way, you can always downgrade to iOS 5.0.1 later, which means you will always have access to an untethered jailbreak.
We’ll show you how to create a firmware file for your A4 devices that can always be jailbroken. We’ll also tell you what to do to preserve the jailbreakability of your A5 devices as well. If you haven’t done this yet, now is the time to act…
With every passing day, the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.0.1 inches closer. To hold us over, pod2g has been great about releasing updates and details revolving around his progress.
His latest blog post answers questions that have undoubtedly been on the minds of many who are highly anticipating the jailbreak. For starters, how and why does he have a jailbreak, yet the dev teams have yet to release it to the public?
TinyUmbrella has been updated with support for saving SHSH blobs on the second build of iOS 5.0.1 that Apple released weeks ago for the iPhone 4S. As you cautioned earlier today, it’s important to update to the latest iOS firmware and save your SHSH blobs for the untethered jailbreak.
iPhone 4S and iPad 2 users could be getting an untethered jailbreak as soon as next week, so now is the perfect time to update iOS and save your blobs!
It’s a busy and exciting time for the jailbreak community. In the last couple of weeks we’ve seen the iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak for A4-based devices go live in the form of RedSn0w, PwnageTool, and The Chronic Dev Team’s Corona tool. Moments ago we announced that the security expert known as pod2g expects to drop the untethered jailbreak for iPhone 4S and iPad 2 users next week.
Now is the time to update to Apple’s latest firmware, iOS 5.0.1. Even if you rely on an UltraSn0w unlock, you should update as soon as possible before it’s too late to get the untethered jailbreak on 5.0.1.
Great news for potential iPhone 4S and iPad 2 jailbreakers. Infamous hacker pod2g confirmed a few minutes ago that significant progress has been made on the jailbreak, and we should except it in a week if all goes well.
As you already are aware of, the untethered jailbreak for A4 devices, iPod touch, iPhone 4, etc. was released last week to much fanfare.
Now the only thing left to do is release an A5 (iPad 2, and iPhone 4S) jailbreak for the full enchilada…
iOS hacker pod2g has posted a very enlightening synopsis of how he was able to pull off his 5.0.1 untethered exploit. Citing Apple’s blocking of the exploit methods used prior to iOS 5, he details the alternative methods used for the 5.0.1 untethered exploit and subsequent jailbreaks.
Apple has fixed all previous known ways of executing unsigned binaries in iOS 5.0. Corona does it another way.
Thus, for Corona, I searched for a way to start unsigned code at boot without using the Mach-O loader. That’s why I looked for vulnerabilities in existing Apple binaries that I could call using standard launchd plist mechanisms.
For those of you interested in the low-level workings of the latest untethered jailbreak to hit iOS 5 devices, we highly recommend you check out pod2g’s analysis on his blog.
Jay Freeman (known as saurik) has pushed an update for MobileSubstrate that addresses the crashing of jailbreak tweaks from Cydia on the iOS 5.0.1 untether. Coincidentally, RedSn0w was updated this morning with a fix for MobileSubstrate crash errors as well.
Users that are jailbroken on iOS 5.0.1 can install version 0.9.3955 of MobileSubstrate now in Cydia to fix tweak crashes. Another huge perk is that MobileSubstrate no longer requires that you reboot iOS every time you install or upgrade the package.
