Since Apple seeded the first beta of iOS 5 back in June of this year, the jailbreak community has been eagerly waiting for an untethered exploit. We’ve been able to jailbreak the firmware since practically day one, but it’s always been a tethered solution.
But that could soon change thanks to iOS hacker pod2g. He’s been working hard on an untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.0.1 and keeping the community updated via Twitter and blog posts. Now it seems that he’s just hit a major milestone in his progress… Read More

The entire jailbreak community has its eyes on pod2g right now. The Chronic Dev Team-affiliated iOS hacker has shown a lot of progress over the last few weeks in his efforts to create an untethered iOS 5 jailbreak.
Pod2g has demonstrated a working untethered jailbreak on a third-generation iPod touch running the latest iOS software, and recently confirmed it to work on the iPhone 4. Now he’s added several more devices to the list. Read More

We’ve received more information regarding the current status of the iOS 5 jailbreak. Famous hacker pod2g has just announced that he has successfully jailbroken his iPhone 4 running iOS 5.0.1.
More importantly, the jailbreak is untethered — something we were previously concerned about regarding 5.0.1. We found out that an untethered jailbreak was possible a few days ago, and now it’s been confirmed as working on the iPhone 4. Read More

Another quick update on the state of the iOS 5 untethered jailbreak: French hacker pod2g has confirmed that the iOS 5 untether will in fact work on iOS 5.0.1.
It was originally thought that 5.0.1 had patched the untethered jailbreak, and we recommended that jailbreakers stay on 5.0 if they wanted an untether in the near future. We’re pleased to report that potential jailbreakers on iOS 5.0.1 can breathe a sigh of relief. Read More

There hasn’t been much talk in the jailbreak community regarding progress with either an iOS 5 untethered jailbreak or a 4S jailbreak. But we just received word from infamous iDevice hacker pod2g that, if you’re hoping for either one, stay away from the next iOS update.
Pod2g announced last night that the code-signing bug security expert Charlie Miller uncovered a few days ago could make jailbreaking “dramatically easier.” And since Apple is aware of the issue and will likely patch it in iOS 5.0.1, he recommends not updating… Read More

Some encouraging news was revealed this morning via Twitter for all of you dying to have an iOS 5 untethered jailbreak. It appears that Chronic Dev Team member pod2g has found a bug in iOS 5 that will make it possible for an untethered jailbreak.
The team of hackers already confirmed to have found multiple exploits in iOS 5, but this is the first news that we’ve had in a while regarding the progress of an untethered jailbreak… Read More

As we near the public launch of iOS 5, many jailbreakers are wondering what the future holds. It was originally thought that Apple was out to kill jailbreaking in iOS 5, and many became even more worried when famed hacker Comex announced that he had been hired by Apple. Was the end drawing near?
We can all rest assured that jailbreaking is alive and well. And after months of there being no untethered jailbreak for iOS 5 or the last two releases of iOS 4, the Chronic-Dev Team has said that it is “actively working” on an untethered jailbreak for iOS 5… Read More

Looking at the drama going on between MuscleNerd and P0sixNinja on Twitter, I feel like I am watching a full season of the Young and the Restless. Quick heads up for those of you who didn’t follow the whole conversation.
A few months ago, hacker pod2g found a bootrom exploit in iOS 4.0.1 which was quickly named SHAtter. Chronic Dev Team later started using SHAtter for their GreenPois0n jailbreak for iOS 4.1. Then GeoHot came in the game with a new exploit that he was going to use no matter what in his LimeRa1n jailbreak. At this time, Chronic Dev didn’t have a choice but to put SHAtter on the side for later, and use GeoHot’s exploit.
Everything was going fine until rumors started going around that SHAtter had been leaked… Read More

That’s an interesting tweet that pod2g, the hacker would found out the SHAtter exploit, sent out a couple hours ago in reply to someone asking when we should expect to see GreenPois0n released. According to him, the long awaited GreenPois0n jailbreak for iOS 4.1 will be released in days.
A few days ago the Dev Team demoed a perfectly working PwnageTool jailbreak that took advantage of the SHAtter exploit and successfully jailbroke an iPod 4G. There is every reason to believe that the Chronic Dev Team is near completion here… Read More

pod2g, the guy who discovered the SHAtter exploit that will hopefully allow the GreenPois0n jailbreak to come to life, just announced he is leaving the Chronic Dev Team.
In a series of tweets, pod2g explained that he’s not working with the Chronic Dev Team anymore and that he will now be working independently. The question that comes to mind when reading this is: will the developement of GreenPois0n be affected? Read More

The “Fun Day” is arriving as Chronic Dev Team is working hard to release their first ever all iDevices jailbreak tool named GreenPois0n. It took them a while to release the Greenpois0n jailbreak as it was announced earlier this year but they were never able to push it out as promised.
Chronic Dev Team and their Greenpois0n were even blamed to be fake as they accepted donations but never made a release. Some days ago, they made a strike by revealing a new bootrom exploit named SHAtter Exploit. This achievement means that iPhone 4, iPod Touch 4G, and iPad are jailbroken for life until Apple introduces hardware change in the devices by replacing the bootrom. Read More

Yesterday we reported about the new exploit found by pod2g, and today, MuscleNerd confirmed that it will work with the iPhone 4, the iPad and the new iPod Touch.
This bootrom exploit will require a hardware fix for Apple to prevent future jailbreaks. If you have an iPhone 4 now, that means you’d potentially be able to jailbreak it, no matter what iOS you install on it in the future. Of course at this point it’s just theories… Read More

Well well well. Here are some good news coming from MuscleNerd and co about a new exploit found by a hacker that goes by the name of pod2g. Apparently, pod2g found a bootrom exploit in iOS 4.0.1.
Why should we care about 4.0.1, I hear you saying? Since it’s a bootrom exploit, it means Apple cannot patch the exploit with a software update. The only way to patch the hole would require a hardware modification. In other words, Apple won’t be able to prevent us from jailbreaking until the iPhone 5 comes out. Read More
