Everyone is waiting for untethered jailbreak of the iOS 5.1 badly and the latest news of the pod2g might put a smile on your face. The famous iOS hacker, pod2g, who gave us the iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak exploit, has updated the status on untethered jailbreak of iOS 5.1.
Recently, he tweeted some updates on the iOS 5.1 jailbreak stating that he has bypassed ASLR. That was an important stage getting the untethered jailbreak ready, but it seems that it’s nowhere close to being completed. This might be sad news for you but jailbreaking is getting more and more difficult now.
Pod2g tweeted recently about his progress, stating that the untethered jailbreak of iOS 5.1 is not going to be out for at least a month. His tweet is below:
“ETA for 5.1 JB: no clue! We’re going to set pieces of the puzzle together this week. We could have issues… Could be 1 month maybe 2… Maybe never… (!)
I know 1 month seems long, but it’s short to work on a project like this when it’s a hobby and you’ve other things to do as well.”
According to him the jailbreak can take some time as there are lots of problems that are needed to solve first.
But it was expected that this jailbreak would come earlier because the iPad 3 running on iOS 5.1 was jailbroken within 24 hours of its release, but that isn’t the case here. Keep in mind that iOS 5.0.1 jailbreak took more than 3 months so a month or 2 are normal and aren’t bad and if you’re getting an untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.1 than it’s worth the wait.
Therefore, no one is sure if there will be an iOS 5.1 untethered jailbreak coming anytime soon. All we can do is hope for the best and give our support to the hackers working on the jailbreak. iOS 5.1 has already been jailbroken on non A5 device but the jailbreak is still tethered which means you will have to boot your iOS device in jailbroken state every time you reboot it.Untethered Jailbreak of iOS 5.1 ETA from Pod2G,
