iOS hacker iH8sn0w has discovered a way to untether jailbreak devices powered by the Apple A5(X) processor for life, which includes the iPhone 4s, iPod touch 5, the iPad 2 / 3 and iPad mini. Details are relatively scarce at this moment regarding the iBoot exploit, although if the exploits were ever bound together and released in the form of a jailbreak utility, those in ownership of either device would be able to enjoy an potentially indefinite, untethered jailbreak.

Even though the jailbreak scene is very much a here-and-now kind of pastime in that most enthusiasts are keen to find way to breach the latest versions, it’s always nice to see progress of any kind. And by the sounds of things, this is a pretty significant inroad. Taking to his Twitter feed,iH8sn0w posted A5 AES keys:
