Finally some good news for iPhone 4S and iPad 2 users! Remember how there’s no untethered jailbreak out yet for the iPhone 4S and the iPad 2, all because they run on an A5 processor. Well, looks like pod2g, the same developer who released the untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.0.1, has sent out a tweet saying that an iPhone 4S and iPad 2 untethered jailbreak may be released next week.
Users who’ve been waiting to jailbreak their all new iPhone 4S and year old iPad 2 on iOS 5 can finally take a breather. iPad 2 last received the jailbreak love with the release of JailbreakMe 3.0, but that was only on iOS 4.3.3. Now, Apple has stopped signing all those iOS versions, including iOS 4.3.5 so people have been really looking forward to such news. iPhone 4S users on the other hand haven’t had access to any kind of jailbreak, because the A5 processor had issues with the latest untethered jailbreak that was released for iOS 5.0.1.
There have been so many Cydia tweaks released for iOS 5 and 5.0.1 that all the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 users are going to be really happy. Also, people working on the Siri to iPhone 4 port will get better things from a jailbroken iPhone 4S.
He has also just confirmed that users who aren’t running iOS 5.0.1 on their iPad 2 and iPhone 4S should upgrade right away. Looks like he just gave us the Go signal indirectly. This means that the iPhone dev team may already be working on a Redsn0w upgrade to support the untethered jailbreak.
Pod2g has gained a lot of respect in the jailbreak community now, as he has been helping the community in figuring out the untether. Now that he has given his word, it’s best that we keep our fingers crossed and hope that the jailbreak is released next week.
