iOS 5 Bug Found, Untethered Jailbreak Being Worked On [Updated]
Just moments ago iOS hacker pod2g announced that he has found a bug that has the ability to provide an untethered jailbreak for iOS 5 users. Currently the latest version of redsn0w provides a tethered jailbreak for all iOS users (except iPad 2 and iPhone 4S devices) but for many people, an untethered jailbreak is a must.
Hey jailbreaking friends, I've found a bug that can untether iOS 5. Don't expect a release soon, but I'm gonna work hard in it.
As mentioned in his tweet, it is unclear as to when the untethered jailbreak will be released. It is importent to note that though a bug (or exploit) has been found, it can often take a long time before a final release is made to the public. It can often take a lot of work for developers to code, test and package a jailbreak before it is made available. Pod2g has made it clear not to expect a release soon, we will keep you updated as soon as any new information is released though.
