New Details about the most awaited untethered jailbreak for iPhone 4S and iPad 2 have been posted on Pod2g blog! As we told you yesterday that Pod2g has announced that the iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak for iPhone 4S and iPad 2 will be released within week. And as we used to see always a new details comes every day straight from Pod2g regarding his progress, here’s a short FAQ on A5 (iPhone 4S / iPad 2) jailbreak have posted on Pod2g blog…..
How could pod2g have an untethered 4S and dev teams still haven’t released tools to achieve this at home ?
The exploit I used to inject the untethering files to the 4S relies on having a developer account, and can’t be released publicly.It’s the same reason why @MuscleNerd has an iPad 2 tethered jailbreak but couldn’t distribute it.So, we need to find a distributable exploit to remount the system partition read/write and to set Corona files at the correct places.
Why A4 version of Corona was easier to release ?Because a tethered jailbreak is a good way to install Corona!
Why don’t you do a tethered jailbreak then ?A tethered jailbreak also relies on an exploitable vulnerability that we still haven’t found yet !
As you can see in the Pod2g words above that the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 untethered jailbreak can’t be released to the public because it will require a developer account. So we are waiting for more details and progress from Pod2g…..
keep following us we will let you know once more details is available……..
Update: Here’s some more details. Pod2g has announced on his blog that he have now a dream team working with him to find a way to release the A5 Jailbreak for public.

And last, but not least @p0sixninja (http://theiphonewiki.com/wiki/index.php?title=User:Posixninja), the leader of the Chronic Dev Team, and my partner for years on iPhone security research has started to code and fuzz the Apple sandbox.
