pod2g passes A4 jailbreak off to Chronic Dev Team focuses on A5 jailbreak
Just a bit ago, @pod2g updated his blog once again with more progress on the untethered 4S jailbreak. At this time, the A4 jailbreak is pretty much complete so he has passed it off to the rest of the Chronic-Dev team(presumably so they can continue testing and begin packaging the exploit into a user-friendly GUI tool). In doing so, he has also freed up his time to focus solely on the A5 jailbreak now for iPad2 and iPhone4S.
He still has not provided an exact release date but he does keep saying "soon." Honestly, at this point, I'd rather have him wait until 5.1 is released before burning the exploit. For those unfamiliar with how the cat&mouse game of jailbreaking goes, if pod2g releases the jailbreak before 5.1 is released it is EXTREMELY likely that Apple will patch it before releasing 5.1 publicly. This would be terrible news for iPhone4S users who are depending on the upcoming 5.1 release to fix their battery drain issues.
He also made an update on his Facebook page saying nothing more than "A4 soon," this could be an indication that he plans on releasing the A4 jailbreak as soon as it's finished, packaged and tested instead of waiting to release the A4/A5 jailbreaks at the same time(again I hope this is not the case).
I need to focus on A5 and hope I can find a path quick, and I have the feeling that chronic-dev could help me.
So, here is what I did:
- I gave all the details to the chronic dev team so that they can finish, test, integrate and release the A4 jb ASAP.
- I'll put all my energy from now on on the A5
Hope I don't disappoint.
We will continue to keep you up to date whenever pod2g makes a new post.
