When last week, an untethered jailbreak for all iOS 5.01. devices was unraveled except for the most important ones of the bunch – the iPhone 4S and the iPad 2, a lot of people were puzzled and wondered what was going on?
Apparently, just a little time lag. Hacker pod2g is all set to deliver the jailbreak that will land on Apple’s golden boy in just one week. The news couldn’t be more exciting for those wanting to set their iDevices free. It’s a good step for pod2g as well. He tweeted the following:
“I made a step today for the A5. With some luck we could expect a release in a week.”
Pod2g is pretty popular in the world of hacking and jailbreaking and previously released a bunch of popular jailbreak tools such as redsn0w, PwnageTool and Corona. The upcoming jailbreak for the iPhone 4 is expected to be untethered, which basically translates into devices being able to reboot freely without some additional software boot tethered to a computer.
Pod2g is not the only hacker in the business of trying to jailbreak the iPhone 4S. Just last week, another well known iPhone hacker called p0sixninja announced that users who wished to get their iPhone 4S and iPad 2 jailbroken would have to update them. This is proof that a jailbreak is on its way. No specific details are known, nevertheless.
