Even though we should see an untethered jailbreak for A5 devices in about a week, most people are getting impatient, and some of them might even question the fact that pod2g even has an untethered jailbreak for the iPhone 4S/iPad 2. Jump over the break to check out a short FAQ that the hacker has posted about the A5 untethered jailbreak…
How could pod2g have an untethered 4S and dev teams still haven’t released tools to achieve this at home ?
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.
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 !
pod2g, release this stuff quick, [your insult here], I’ve waited enough now.
If I could, I would !
