iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak release is just days away

It looks like the prospect of the iOS 5.1.1 jailbreak being released during the Hack In The Box security conference is becoming more likely, as pod2g announces on twitter that the jailbreak release is mere days away.

A few days ago, pod2g said that “something big” will happen during the event regarding jailbreaking. Honestly, what can be bigger than the 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak?

Get ready ladies and gentlemen, it’s almost here…


Not only did pod2g give us a timetable for the upcoming jailbreak, but he’s also updated the list of devices that the new jailbreak will support.

Previously, it was stated that the iPod 3G and the iPhone 3GS would now be supported, yet the list was only updated with the iPod 3G as being absolutely confirmed.

Now, it appears that the iPhone 3GS has been definitely confirmed as well. Here is the latest list of supported devices according to pod2g’s blog:

Devices that have been tested to work:

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

Unsupported devices:

  • Apple TV 3

Still need to test (but that should work):

  • iPad 2 Wifi, R2
  • iPad 3 Global
  • Apple TV 2

If pod2g’s progress is any indication, then I’d say it’s a sure thing that every device listed outside of the Apple TV 3 will be supported from day one of the release.

There’s still no word as to what the tool will be called that incorporates pod2g’s work, but it’s been stated that the upcoming tool will be the work of the Chronic Dev Team.
