iPhone 4S and iPad 2 Untethered Jailbreak FAQ

Pod2g has posted on his blog to answer some questions about the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 Untethered jailbreak.

With every passing day, the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.0.1 inches closer. To hold us over, pod2g has been great about releasing updates and details revolving around his progress. His latest blog post answers questions that’ve undoubtedly been on the minds of many who are highly anticipating the jailbreak. For starters, how and why doeshe have a jailbreak, yet the dev teams have yet to release it to the public?

The exploit I used to inject the untethering files to the 4S relies on having a developer account, and can’t be released publicly.

It’s the same reason why @MuscleNerd has an iPad 2 tethered jailbreak but couldn’t distribute it.

So, we need to find a distributable exploit to remount the system partition read/write and to set Corona files at the correct places.

But that’s not all; pod2g also touches on reasons why the A4 jailbreak was easier to achieve than the A5 jailbreak. As always, it’s an interesting read. Head over to pod2g’s blog and check it out.

How could pod2g have an untethered 4S and dev teams still haven’t released tools to achieve this at home ?

Why A4 version of Corona was easier to release ?
Because a tethered jailbreak is a good way to install Corona!

Why don’t you do a tethered jailbreak then ?
A tethered jailbreak also relies on an exploitable vulnerability that we still haven’t found yet !

Earlier this week, pod2g posted that he had made good progress on the jailbreak for A5 devices and said with some luck we could expect a release in a week.
