800,000 New A5 Jailbreaks In A Little Over 3 Days

With the iPhone 4S/iPad 2 jailbreak being available for a few days now, the iPhone DevTeam has announced the number of A5 owners who have jailbroken their devices since Friday morning. The numbers as of Monday afternoon are:

  • 491,325 new iPhone4,1 devices
  • 308,967 new iPad2 devices
  • 152,940 previously jailbroken (at 4.x) iPad2 devices

Total: 953,232 new A5 jailbreaks in a little over 3 days

The reason these numbers can be so precise is that one of the housekeeping activities that happens when you launch Cydia is a query to @saurik’s server for the list of available SHSH blobs.  (Even if you have none on file, the query is still made).

Remember the cardinal rule of jailbreaking: never update your firmware until a new jailbreak is available.  This is especially true for A5 owners, who currently have no way of restoring to 5.0.1 once the 5.0.1 SHSH blob signing window is closed.
