R.I.P. – I just heardkilled the ndrv_setspec() integeroverflow and his friends in .0b1 – if this is true the untether is dead
It was discovered yesterday that the tethered jailbreak in limera1n worked perfectly in iOS 5 with running smoothly, but for those hoping the untether from i0n1c would work, it looks like those dreams have been put to rest.
This doesn’t mean anotherjailbreak won’t be discovered, although the jailbreak community most likely wouldn’t release it until the is available to prevent from finding the exploit and patching it at the hardware level.
Would you be open to using a tethered jailbreak withor would you stick with iOS 4 until an is available?
