The famous iOS hacker @pod2g has recently updated his blog a number of times, noting that he has managed to apply an untethered jailbreak solution to his iPhone 3GS, original iPad and iPod touch (fourth generation), all of which are running iOS 5.0.1. The news comes following a previous update, in which @pod2g announced that he had been able to untether the iPhone 4 running iOS 5.0.1, also.
In a recent Twitter update, iOS hacker and Chronic Dev-Team member @pod2g announced that iOS 5.0.1 has also been untethered, noting that it is safe for jailbreak fans to update to the current version of Apple's mobile operating system.
Back in November, @pod2g (an iOS hacker) posted a Twitter update noting that a bug had be found that could untether iOS 5. Following this, @p0sixninja of the Chronic Dev-Team confirmed that this exploit is indeed legitimate, but added that it's being kept "highly guarded" for the time being. Now, a video has been uploaded to @pod2g's YouTube channel, demonstrating the untethered jailbreak solution on an iOS device running iOS 5.
In a number of Twitter updates which hit the Web earlier today, iPhone Dev-Team member @MuscleNerd confirmed that the upcoming version of redsn0w will make use of users' SHSH blobs for iOS 5.0+. Furthermore, he advised jailbreak fans to save their SHSH blobs using TinyUmbrella (if they haven't already).
In a recent Twitter update, Joshua Hill (@p0sixninja) of the Chronic Dev Team has announced that already 10 million crash reports have been submitted by jailbreak fans via the Chronic-Dev Crash Reporter.
Today has definitely been an interesting day for the jailbreak community. Both the Chronic Dev Team and the iPhone Dev-Team have made announcements regarding the untethered iOS 5 jailbreak and iPhone 4S unlock, and the good news is that solutions for both are in the works and will, at some point, become available.
The iPhone Dev-Team has released a new and improved version of redsn0w, its popular jailbreak tool. Now, users of the software can take advantage of a variety of exciting features, including the ability to kick an iOS device out of recovery mode, and support for those all-important SHSH blobs.
Following the release of iOS 5 beta 4, the iPhone Dev-Team updated its redsn0w jailbreak software. Now, the latest version of redsn0w has the ability to jailbreak iOS devices running the fourth beta version of iOS 5.
Yesterday, Apple released the fourth beta version of iOS 5, which was available to download "over-the-air." However, a recent Twitter update by iPhone Dev-Team member @MuscleNerd notes that these OTA updates are currently not compatible with jailbroken iOS devices. He notes that the limitation is "almost like a present from Apple."
Great news, jailbreak fans: The latest beta version of iOS 5 (beta 3, which was released yesterday) can already be jailbroken using the iPhone Dev-Team's redsn0w. While a previous version of the app didn't quite work, the Dev-Team updated redsn0w (0.9.8b2) and the jailbreak now works perfectly.
The online jailbreak solution JailbreakMe has the ability to “liberate” a variety of iOS devices, including the iPad 2. But in the process, the Web-based jailbreak also screws a few things up, namely Apple’s Camera Connection Kit. Fortunately, @comex has recently announced (via Twitter) that a fix for this issue will hit Cydia tomorrow, which is great news.
Earlier today, the jailbreak mastermind @comex released JailbreakMe 3.0 - an online, Web based jailbreak solution that even supports the second generation iPad. Now, we're hearing that @comex has also released PDF Patcher 2 in Cydia: A jailbreak package that fixes the PDF exploit JailbreakMe takes advantage of.
This weekend, it was revealed that the domain for JailbreakMe (that is, "http://JailbreakMe.com") was up for sale via GoDaddy, which left many wondering whether @comex' online jailbreak solution was ever going to be released, following the PDF's leak earlier in the week. Now, @comex has acknowledged the sale via Twitter, claiming that he does not own the domain, and that he is not the person "who put it on GoDaddy."
The famous jailbreak mastermind, @comex, has recently updated JailbreakMe - the online jailbreak solution, which has previously launched twice. For a while now, many have expected @comex to relaunch JailbreakMe with added support for iOS 4.3.3 and possibly even the second generation iPad. However, as of this moment, no such update has taken place.
Good news, jailbreak developers: Apple's recently released iOS 5 beta 2 software update can already be jailbroken using the existing version of redsn0w (a jailbreak solution provided by the iPhone Dev-Team).
Later this year, a jailbreak conference called "MyGreatFest" is happening in Old London Town (we already told you about this, remember?). While the conference is set to play host to a variety of influential speakers - including Jay Freeman (@saurik) and Joshua Hill (@p0sixninja) - the latter "hacker" could release a jailbreak solution for the iPhone 5 at the event.
Following the release of redsn0w for iOS 5, @iH8sn0w has released a new version of sn0wbreeze, which also supports the first beta version of Apple’s upcoming software update. The news hit the Web hours ago, via @iH8sn0w’s Twitter account.
