A few days ago the hacker @ pod2g, author of last untethered jailbreak of IOS,Twitter has announced the release within the week the release of the A5 chipdevices, namely the iPhone 4S and the iPad 2. In an update of his blog, @pod2g has responded to some questions common to him posed by many usersthese days. The answers cast new doubts on the dates of final release of the tool.
It seemed almost done, but the new details on the jailbreak untethered iPad 2 iPhone 4S and may take 2 to discomfort those owners who want to unlock theiriDevices generation. We analyze the post, articulated in the form of FAQquestion-and-answer, just published by @ pod2g on his personal blog:
How can it be that untethered jailbreak iPhone pod2g own the 4S and the dev team has not yet released the tool to run it?
The exploit that I used to place the files inside of the untethered jailbreak of the iPhone 4S need a developer account, so can not be released to the public. Forthe same reason @ MuscleNerd has tethered jailbreak iPad 2 but can notdistribute it. So we need to find an exploit distributed [public] to mount the partition read / write and insert the files in the proper place of Corona.
Apparently the hacker already has the key to jailbreak devices with full A5 chips, but to execute the release should be necessarily a developer account, or an entry all’iOS Developer Program. This limit does not allow the public release of the tool, given as the untethered jailbreak for the A4-based devices, the Chronic Dev Team.
The guidelines for the work @ pod2g, as better explained in the next lines of the last post, provide the initial release of a tethered jailbreak for the A5-baseddevices and the subsequent release of an update of Corona, which transformsthe tweak of Cydia tethered to untethered jailbreak, thus eliminating therequirement to reboot the PC / Mac every time you restart the terminal. Here the following questions and answers:
Why was it easier for the release of version A4 of Corona?
Why a tethered jailbreak is a good way to install crown.
So why not do a tethered jailbreak?
A tethered jailbreak also refers to an exploitable vulnerability that we have notfound!
In short, the release of the Crown to A5, which enables untethered jailbreak on iPhone 4S and iPad 2, requires an initial tethered jailbreak, not yet done so it canbe publicly released. The answers to the questions have no doubt reassured theupcoming release of the jailbreak tool, but a few days ago can just @ pod2g to recommend to update their iPhone 4S and iPad 2 5.0.1 the latest version of IOS.
