Pod2g Reveals That The iOS 5.1 Untethered Jailbreak Is At Least A Month Away


5.1 Jailbreak Untethered iPhone 4S iPad 3Tonight pod2g, a renowned iOS security expert and hacker, updated his followers on Twitter with a series of tweets regarding the iOS 5.1 untethered Jailbreak status. On April 18th, pod2g  announced that he managed to discover all of the exploits (presumably userland) required to create a “new [Untethered] jailbreak”.

Last week, just two days after announcing that all of the required exploits have been discovered, pod2g revealed that he successfully bypassed a “computer security” method known as ASLR (or address space layout randomization) – a difficult task in itself.

Up until today’s series of updates from pod2g, it was assumed that he and the group of hackers he’s been collaborating with have been gearing up for a release sometime in the not-so-distant future. Unfortunately, that doesn’t appear to be the case – the Untethered 5.1 Jailbreak may never be released, or it could be available as soon as roughly one month from now (according to pod2g).

If an untethered utility isn’t released for 5.1, untethered Jailbreak won’t die with iOS 5.0.1 (the latest firmware with an untethered Jailbreak). Pod2g likely meant that because we’re nearing the two month anniversary of the firmware’s release, it would be wiser to hold onto the discovered exploits for use with the next iOS installment.

As usual, aside from pod2g’s vague timeline of “1 month” to “never”, there isn’t an official release date for the untethered 5.1 utility. the With that said, stay tuned for coverage on the iOS 5.1 untethered Jailbreak and updates regarding its release as events unfold.

       Do you want a jailbreak  early that might DESTROY your idevice and force you to buy a NEW one or would you like a jailbreak that actually wont DESTROY your idevice?
      They need to make it SAFE!
      Kind of like you cant expect to get a car that is missing the front lights & seat belts.
