It’s late Christmas time for the iOS community, that just got a present through the release of the untethered jailbreak for the A4 devices with iOS 5.0.1. This is the result of two months of hard work and research done by pod2g and also by the iPhone Dev and Chronic Dev teams, making the jailbreak ready for the general public.
Following the A4 jailbreak, pod2g published a detailed blog post, offering the public all the info they need about the new software workaround called Corona. The text focuses on the problems a user encounters when trying to execute unsigned binaries and also the issues found in the development process. Pod2g recently announced his progress on the A5 jailbreak development and a release is expected within a week’s time. This means that the iPad 2 and iPhone 4S will finally get the jailbreak goodness, including some Cydia quality time.
A recent tweet from Chronic Dev Team member p0sixninja detailed to jailbreakers the fact that they must upgrade to iOS 5.0.1 while they can. A5 devices are targeted here and folks with a software unlock are excluded, as predicted. If you want information to jailbreak your iOS 5.0.1 A4 devices with an untethered method you’ll find details here, for the iPad, iPod touch and iPhone using redsn0w.
