The jailbreak dream team have managed to successfully break the sandbox that had prevented pod2G from releasing an untethered jailbreak publicly.
This means that the eagerly awaited untethered iOS 5.0.1 jailbreak for iPhone 4S and iPad 2 users is imminent. In fact, pod2G says it "should be a matter of days".
Here are some news about the current work on the A5 research.
@planetbeing escaped from the sandbox with the help of @saurik. Thanks to their awesome work, there should be nothing left blocking for the A5 jailbreak.
Now it should be a matter of days. Still no precise ETA of course.
We all want this to be finished ASAP, we're getting tired!
It remains to be seen if they will wait for Apple to release iOS 5.1 that is currently being beta tested by developers. But as there is always a risk that Apple can fix the exploit that was used to perform the untethered jailbreak in the next iOS firmware update, we feel that jailbreak dream team are most likely not going to wait for Apple to release iOS 5.1, just like they have done for non-A5 devices.
