The Corona A5for the 4S and is nearly ready for release. The team has published some information you need to know.
A post on the iPhone Dev-Team’s blog reveals that ‘all technical hurdles dealing with the underlying technique have been overcome, and it’s now all about making the jailbreak as bug free as possible.’
To be as flexible as possible, the A5 version of the corona jailbreak will take multiple forms:
● Chronic Dev have incorporated the overall flow into a GUI that runs on your or PC
● iPhone Dev have incorporated the exact same flow into a command-line interface (CLI). This will allow us to help users through individual steps of the jailbreak manually, to both help the user and help improve the overall flow. Although the CLI will also allow the user to perform the entire jailbreak from beginning to end, we anticipate it will be more useful in debugging the occasional errors. The CLI currently has over 20 individual options (in addition to the single “jailbreak” option) that should be useful during debug after the GUI release.
● Once all the bugs in the flow are worked out, we’ll also incorporate it into the GUI (but still leave the CLI freely available too). In order to maximize the chances of the jailbreak working for everyone, the redsn0w GUI will use native iTunes libraries – this technique is slightly different than how the Chronic Dev GUI handles communications, and should provide nice combined coverage for all the odd computer configurations out there.
Because there were so many different people and teams involved in the A5 corona release, we all felt the most equitable approach to any Paypal contributions should involve a single shared account. If you do feel the desire to contribute to the “dream team” Paypal account, it will be distributed to the members according to internally agreed-upon proportions 🙂 The same link will be on both the Chronic Dev and iPhone Dev versions of the GUI. This method seemed like the fairest to everyone involved!
The supported firmware versions will be:
● iPhone4S: 5.0 (9A334), 5.0.1 (9A405) and the “other” 5.0.1 (9A406)
● iPad2: 5.0.1 (9A405)
As we mentioned earlier, if you are anowner and you want the best chance at an , you should stay at 5.0. If you are already at 5.0.1 you should make sure you’re on the 9A405 build or downgrade to that build so you stay at the lowest possible baseband.
