iOS 5 Untethered Jailbreak is Finally Out
Finally iOS 5 and iOS 5.0.1 untethered Jailbreak is out. As always this untethered iOS 5 jailbreak is provided by Dev-Team.
Dev-Team has posted how to jailbreak iOS 5 untethered video tutorial on YouTube along with necessary download links that you will find in description of the video. This video is featuring a simple step by step guide to untethered jailbreak any iOS 5.0.1 device on Mac and Windows.
This jailbreaking methond works with the following iDevices:
- iPhone 4/4S
- iPhone 3GS
- iPad 1 and iPad 2
Chronic Dev Team member @pod2g – whose tweet caused a ripple across the web regarding the untethered iOS 5 jailbreak – has recently updated about the status of the jailbreak in another tweet. The untethered iOS 5 jailbreak update comes right after Charlie Miller found a serious bug in the iOS 5 which Apple got plugged after Charlie demonstrated the bug’s vulnerability by planting an app in the App Store!
So, first off, Charlie Miller showed us all that Apple’s iOS 5 had some bug which was probably going to be serious down the lane. It was a bug known by Apple coders, because they needed to fire up Mobile Safari faster and had to use some exception – which caused the bug to be readily available for hackers like Miller.
Once it’s on the internet, Apple of course, gets all the details. It worked up a patch – and the bug vanished. That’s where iOS 5.0.1 update comes up. So if you have updated to the latest version of iOS 5, you are technically safe from any app attacking through that security hole.
But, @pod2g has tweeted about this update. And that’s not good news for jailbreakers and the likes.
The Chronic Dev Team that’s been working on the untethered iOS 5 jailbreak says if you need to jailbreak your iOS 5 device, you should not update it to iOS 5.0.1 because that might simply make the jailbreak non-workable. That’s some news people should know, if you intend to wait and get the untethered iOS 5 jailbreak.
The untethered jailbreak – as mentioned before on our website – is a boon because it lets you reboot your iPhone or iPad without having to connect it to the PC/Mac and run the jailbreaking software. You can just use your iPhone or iPad without worrying about it freezing because of the jailbreak.
There are several people working on the jailbreak. We had a tethered and semi-tethered iOS 5 jailbreaks come up on the radar sometime back – but these worked on iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS devices only. The untethered iOS 5 jailbreak that @pod2g talks about – if it turns out into a software hack (which it increasingly seems like) – could be very much workable on iPhone 4S – which would open quite a lot of possibilities for developers!
