It seems now a matter of days to issue the long-awaited tool that enables untethered jailbreak of the iPhone OS 5 devices. As reported by 9to5Mac , in fact, the Chronic Dev Team had completed its work on the tool and has already performed several tests to confirm the soundness of the new untethered jailbreak for iPhone OS 5.
The Chronic Dev Team, therefore, would have finally finished work on the first tool in the world that would allow the jailbreak of the iPhone OS terminals 5 and iPhone OS 5.0.1. A team member, pod2g , has also released a video that shows a device fully functional jailbroken, unlocked with the new tools developed.
The release of a tool like this was already in the air for about a month when their pod2g, through his Twitter account, he spoke for the first time the possibility to unlock iPhone OS 5 with an untethered jailbreak :
” Hey jailbreaking friends, I’ve found a bug that can untether iOS 5. Do not expect to release soon, but I’m gonna work hard at it.
The work, therefore, seem to have reached a fairly advanced, although there is no official word yet on a release date of the alleged tools .
Please note that the jailbreak procedure, as well as to void the warranty of the terminal , it is potentially dangerous to the terminal.
The biggest benefit of an untethered jailbreak is that users can restart the device IOS jailbroken state without necessarily having to connect to a PC.
Pod2g in the message on Twitter did not mention that exploits or bugs has been exploited to jailbreak IOS 5. Rumors may have been used by some bug found on November 7.
The video linked on Twitter by pod2g has been incorporated for convenience below. Articles will be published in the coming days with more information about it.
The jaibreak iOS 5.0 untethered mode seems to be very far: in Pod2g demonstrated in video.
Each new version of the IOS platform has a right to jailbreak iOS 5 but gave a bit of trouble. If the tethered jailbreak is already possible , new features integrated into the OS made it more difficult to create an untethered jailbreak tool (jailbreak permanent without having to repeat the procedure every reboot of the device). But things are progressing and a developer, Pod2g, has just published a video demonstration of an untethered jailbreak iOS 5.0 with Cydia alternative access to the portal. The procedures and tools to achieve this have not yet made public, but should not delay in hearing about it.
Casually, it’s been a while since we expect the arrival of the untethered jailbreak for iOS 5 . While the last version of the Apple platform can be unlocked, but it is for the moment that a semi-tethered solution . Yep but apparently, the total release of the beast would be on track. In any case, what can be deduced from the video posted by our compatriot pod2g since the latter is simply directed an iPhone running iOS 5 and enjoying a untethered jailbreak.
But be careful because everything is not lost, however. Of course, this video is sure to delight all those waiting to unlock their phone, their player or touch pad for a while, but it should be noted that this solution has not been tested on an iPhone 4S or an iPad 2 . And for good reason, because our friend did not . Similarly, it has yet to turn on Bouzin iOS 5.0.1 but, according to him, this should pose no problem. Personally, I tend to take his word. I’m like that, I trust the people.
This suggests that pod2g will now refine this a bit before throwing his solution on the web. Anyway, we will not fail to congratulate him on his performance. And even to applaud with both hands, either. Casually, it is not every day a little frenchie manages to shake up the scene of jailbreaking and still do not forget that all the teams working in this sector bossent on the subject for a while … without being successful in their aims.
In any case, feel free to subscribe to his Twitter account to be kept informed of progress.
