In pod2g's latest blog post he talks about the progress of the iOS 5.0 and iOS 5.0.1 UNTETHERED Jailbreak. recently we heard news that Apple has patched his exploit he was going to use for the iPad 2 and the iPhone 4S so research has to start all over again. People who donated for the support of the Jailbreak should be happy to know that pod2g spent the donations on an iPhone 4S and an iPad 2 for testing.
The blog post titled "Progress" says:
"Hello my friends,I know that I've been silent yesterday and that it was annoying.
Sorry for this, but I had to organize things for the release.
Also, I've tested iPad 1 and it worked.
Today I hope I can test a 3Gs.
BTW: please don't propose to be a beta tester because I'm too paranoid, fearing leaks.
Now the time to finalize the jailbreak for old devices, fix some stability issues and package the whole.That will take some days.
In the meanwhile, I'm starting the research for iPad 2 and 4S.I'll take you informed of my progress.
Finally, I want to thank all who donated. I now can buy both devices! I don't know what to say.
Thank you very much my friends.
Have a good day!
So hopefully if all goes well, we should at least be seeing a Jailbreak for the older devices soon. Let's hope that the Jailbreak for the older devices will be released for at least those users sooner. More news as the story unfolds!
