Untethered iOS 5 jailbreak demonstrated on video, coming soon to your device
The Chronic Dev Team is close to finally releasing an untethered jailbreak solution for iOS 5 and it will be the world’s first, if it works. French iOS hacker pod2g just posted a video of what looks an almost finished version of the jailbreak tool. Up until now, iOS 5 has only allowed for a tethered jailbreak and the benefit of having an untethered solution for your iOS device is that you don’t need to have your gadget connected to a computer for each reboot.
“Hey jailbreaking friends, I’ve found a bug that can untether iOS 5. Don’t expect a release soon, but I’m gonna work hard in it,” pod2g tweeted a month ago.
The hacker hasn’t yet tested the solution with the latest iPhone 4S and iPad 2 as he doesn’t own the devices, but promises to test them once everything else is finished. All of the unanswered questions around this come also a bit too early. Luckily, we now know that the untethered jailbreak is possible - all we have to do is wait for a tool for the common man to get released.
