Hot on the news of untethered iOS 5.0.1 jailbreak success on the iPod touch 3G, we can share major progress on an iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak for many other devices.
iPhone hacker pod2g has been toiling away at the first real jailbreak for iOS 5 and iOS 5.0.1.
An untethered iOS 5.0.1 jailbreak is great news for average users that are excited about an iPhone jailbreak, because it allows the iPhone to be restarted when it is not connected to a computer without lost access.
iOS 5.0.1 Untethered Jailbreak List
Pod2g shared late last night that he had completed the code for the following devices, bringing us closer to an untethered iOS 5.0.1 jailbreak.
- iPhone 4
- iPod touch 3G
- iPod Touch 4G
- iPad 1
- Apple TV 2
While there is no known release date for the untethered iOS 5.0.1 jailbreak, with this speedy process, we could see something before the end of the year — if we are lucky.
Before You Update
It is safe to update your iPhone or iPad listed above to iOS 5.0.1 via an over the air update, and still be able to jailbreak your iPhone when this is released.
Before you update though, you should back up your iOS 5 signature hash blobs with iFaith so that you can downgrade to iOS 5 in case you need to downgrade. You can watch the video below to learn more about iFaith and blobs.
iPhone 4S Jailbreak Status
Unfortunately, there is no word on the iPhone 4S or iPad 2 jailbreak. These devices use a new Apple A5 processor, which requires a different jailbreak hack to work. There has been progress on an iPhone 4S jailbreak, but it is not ready for public release.
