Chronic Dev Team is putting finishing touches on what is set to become the world’s first solution for 5 and 5.0.1. Team member and French hacker pod2g just released this video showing off the , which appears to be near-complete and functioning properly.
Unlike tethered, did confirm that the untether will work on :does not require that the device be connected to a computer each time it needs to be booted. It appears you won’t be able to untether with .0.1 using Chronic’s tool, but pod2g
Tons of questions from my nice followers. Too early to answer. Will work on, will try 2 and 4S after others are ready.
First indication of a possible untethered iOS jailbreak came in pod2g’s tweet last month:
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.
There was no word on availability of the solution at post time, but we reckon that it will be sooner than later.
Chronic Dev Team explained in a recent blog post that patched the jailbreak-prone exploits found in iOS 5 betas with the release of the golden master build in mid-October. The company is apparently using their iTunes-based crash reporting system in order to find jailbreak exploits before they are released into the wild. If you’re into jailbreaking, you should consider iFaith, a Windows application that circumvents ’s restricted downgrade system which prevents people from downgrading their devices to an older iOS 5.x firmware. The program permits unsigned user restores based on dumped iOS 5 signature hash blobs. Additionally, it’s possible to restore to iOS 5.0.1 and preserve baseband by dumping the blobs with iFaith first.[iframe width=”420″ height=”315″ src=”http://www.youtube.com/embed/kp_Mz6rs9fc”]
