News Regarding iPhone 4S Untethered Jailbreak Hits The Web

December 19, 2011
In an update to his iOS blog, the famous iOS hacker @pod2g has posted a chunk of information regarding the status of an untethered jailbreak solution for the iPhone 4S. The update reads:
Hello. Here are the news of the 4S week-end. The untether fails right now because I'm having processor cache issues. I'm close, but I can't figure out what happens. It certainly has something to do with the Cortex-A9 cache management. I could sort it out quick, it's a matter of chance. I'll report you my progress tomorrow.
For the past few weeks now, @pod2g has been gradually working his way through Apple's line of Apple A4-equipped iOS devices, developing jailbreak solutions for each one running iOS 5. Though no solution has yet been released, @pod2g's various updates suggest that a solution will be available to download and utilize soon. However, this latest update cites Apple's fifth generation iPhone handset, the iPhone 4S - something @pod2g hasn't really referenced in the past (leading many of us to believe that he was only concentrating on Apple A4 iOS devices). Because of its dual-core Apple A5 chip, the iPhone 4S has proved to be difficult to jailbreak. Hopefully, @pod2g's update means we'll see a jailbreak solution (untethered or otherwise) become available soon. In the update, the hacker promises to update is fanbase on the situation tomorrow - we'll be sure to let you know if he does.
