Potentially good news for those of you looking to update to5 this week but don’t want to lose your . Stefan Esser, also known as i0n1c if you follow him on twitter, has revealed that he believes an jailbreak for may already be in the works.
i0n1c, born Steffen Esser, is a prominent figure within the jailbreak community, and today tweeted that the iOS 5jailbreak was “covered”, Although he gave no further details (let’s face it, hackers don’t always like to completely clarify), it wouldn’t be far-fetched to presume he was talking about the Chronic Dev Team.
As far as I know iOS 5 untether is covered by other people already. Guess who 😛
We don’t know at this stage if this will include the2, which has proven difficult to Jailbreak, or the soon to be released 4S which has the same A5 processor. There is already a tethered jailbreak available for the iOS 5 Gold Master but that does not include the 2. Also the problem with a tethered jailbreak is the inconvenience caused each time your device needs a reboot; it has to be connected to a computer or it will not restart.
Let’s hope that we won’t have to wait too long for anfor iOS 5, it’s good to know that things seem to be “covered”.
