If you refer back to our previous post about the development of iOS 5 jailbreak, we learned that Pod2g’s credibility is sky high with the proof showing iPhone 4 is successfully jaibroken. Pod2g is making the right decision by submitting his work to Chronic Dev-team for further testing before the public release, that way he can channel all his energy on jailbreaking A5 processor devices (i.e. iPhone 4S as well as iPad 2).
Recently he mentioned about several issues he encountered when he tried to jailbreak iPhone 4S and the issue mainly revolves around the A5 cache problem. Well, it doesn’t sound really good to many of us but he quickly updated his blog and the issue has been resolved with the credit goes to Jay Freeman a.k.a Saurik who happened to help him to gain stable jailbreaking state on iPhone 4S.
Ok, figured it out, the A5 cache is not a problem anymore. I sorted it out by doing the untether in a single thread and by flushing all the dcache then all the icache in a row at a strategical point of the process.
The latest update is given in layman’s terms for average people like us to understand what really going on behind the scene. Judging from Pod2g latest post, we can expect to have untethered jailbreak iOS 5 and iOS 5.0.1 released to the public right after testing is done iPad 2. One may question why he won’t release the untethered jailbreak iOS 5 and 5.0.1 for all devices except iPad 2 and iPhone 4S. The real reason is any premature releases of his breakthrough can be easily patched up by Apple in the next firmware updates, renders all his hard works till this day useless. So the release will be put on hold at least for a while.
As this post is written, there are still no sign of official release of the untethered jailbreak to take place this week, perhaps a couple more weeks to iron out everything before the showdown. We will update you guys with the latest news soon.
