Pod2g Successfully Jailbreaks ‘iPad 3′ On 5.1, iOS 5.1.1 Compatibility Is Next On His List


Jailbreak 5.1.1 untethered pod 2gSince the release of iOS 5.1.1 three days ago, on Monday, May 7th, pod2g and other developers in the iOS hacking community have been extraordinarily quiet regarding whether the iOS 5.1 untethered Jailbreak utility being developed will be compatible with Apple’s latest 5.1.1 firmware.

Today pod2g informed his followers that he’s managed to successfully get the iOS 5.1 untethered Jailbreak running on the new 3rd-generation iPad – this is the good news we’ve been waiting for!

After pod2g announced that the untethered Jailbreak was working on his iPhone 4, he hinted at A5 (iPhone 4S and iPad 2) and A5X (3rd-generation iPad) compatibility and it seemed obvious that the upcoming utility will include Apple’s newest iOS-based devices – but support hasn’t been officially confirmed until now.

However, even though pod2g has achieved a great feat, he still has to stabilize “the payload” before moving on. Once accomplished, pod2g will then attempt to Jailbreak iOS 5.1.1 on presumably all devices.

UPDATE: In another Tweet, pod2g announced that “if it works on iPad 3 and iPhone 4″, he can confirm that it will work on every current iOS-based device running iOS 5.1 and possibly 5.1.1 (except maybe the Apple TV 3): jailbreak 5.1.1

As usual, there isn’t a timeline or release date. Stay tuned for complete coverage regarding the iOS 5.1.1 Untethered Jailbreak.

    Just for clarification… The people that have been working on Jailbreaks all these years; MuscleNerd, pod2g, and any others. They’ve been working on jailbreaks when they have the chance. So basically, they have full time jobs and when they can they are working to make the people who want to jailbreak their iOS devices the chance to do so. They are not required to do so, they do it only for you. Give those guys a break, they use any free time they have to please you. Yeah, I’m a pretty impatient guy, I’ll be the first to admit it. They are making sure that they can jailbreak every device before thy release it to accompany everyone, including you. I’m not writing this to yell at anyone, I’m just pointing out facts so you can appreciate their hard work. There will be a utility soon released for the public, just hang in there while they perfect it, it will be worth the wait. Thanks. 

    BTW, I am in no way shape or form associated with the Dev Team, so no questions please. I’m just a fan who appreciates them, as you should learn to do. They are brilliant, and talented, so just give them the time they deserve.

    I literally have no idea why he is giving us updates on jailbreaking 5.1.1 when he hasn’t even jailbroken the iPad 3 untethered and released it to the public yet. I am all for him keeping the jailbreak to himself and grateful for the hard work he has done for this community. However, it seems as if she is teasing us at this point.

  • Robert K Herd

      Do you know how hard it is to create a Jailbreak? Not to mention that he has other things to do besides work on it.
