Pod2g’s jailbroken iPad 2 running iOS 5.0.1.
After the release of untethered iPhone 4S jailbreak demo video running on the latest iOS 5.0.1 firmware.The A5 untethered jailbreak is inching closer with another update that was posted on pod2g‘s blog today. The update shows an iPad 2 on iOS 5.0.1 running an untethered jailbreak. The iPad 2 is one of the A5 devices, the other being the iPhone 4S, that the dream team has been working on releasing an untethered jailbreak for. With this news, any iPad 2 owners hesitant on updating their iPad 2 to iOS 5.0.1 in fear that their iOS 4.3.3 jailbreak will be gone forever should update as soon as possible because iOS 5.1 patches the exploits that are used in the jailbreak for iOS 5.0.1. iOS 5.1 is still in beta, so there is still time to get all of your iDevices running iOS 5.0.1.
If you have an iPad 2 and you want to jailbreak but are afraid that you won’t be able to use iBooks, then don’t fear. The Corona untethered jailbreak (redsn0w included) was updated not too long ago to fix the sandbox issue for the jailbreak. This will be integrated into the A5 jailbreak so that iPhone 4S and iPad 2 users can use their books while jailbroken. It will also fix any problems with other applications that didn’t play nicely with the sandbox problems because the Corona update was a kernel level fix.
Unfortunately, the public release of iPad 2 and iPhone 4S untethered jailbreak on the latest iOS 5.0.1 firmware is still missing in the post but indeed it must be a bit relaxing situation now to the A5-powered devices owners, at least hackers have finally find the loophole and performed an untethered jailbreak done.
UPDATE: Pod2g appears to have removed the image from his blog. Hmm, I wonder what this could mean.
