iOS 5 Untethered Jailbreak “near ready” Demo Video

Wouldn’t it be a great surprise if that iOS 5 jailbreak for the iPhone 4s and iPad 2 would be ready for Christmas? Or how about before Christmas?  Developer Pod2g posted a video today, a quick demo of the current status of the 5.0.1 jailbreak running on an iPhone 4. He say’s its nearly “prime” for all devices except the 4S and iPad 2, but we can always hope for the best. The reason for the video? “This is meant to reassure people that were thinking it only works on older iPods.” POD2G blogged.

The caching issues have been taken care of, the A5 cache is not a problem anymore. He fixed it by “doing the untether in a single thread and by flushing all the dcache then all the icache in a row at a strategical point of the process.”

For the tech guys, here is a link explaining issues related to self modifying code ( or code patching ) on the ARM platform : http://blogs.arm.com/software-enablement/141-caches-and-self-modifying-code/

Another news : I discussed with @saurik today about the launchd boot process, and he’s found one missing piece of the puzzle I needed to have a perfectly stable jailbreak. He’s definitly one of the best iOS gurus out there. Thank you saurik!

All we can do is continue to wait “days” while they do their best. The only solution now is a tethered Redsn0w 0.9.9b9b that still does not support iPhone 4s or iPad 2.

  1. iPad 2 on 5.0 I’m getting worried everyone is focused on the iPhone 4s and iPad 2 seems like less of a need. The jailbreak for both will be released at the same time right?

    • You idiot if the jb worked with the iphone 4s ot will work on the ipad2 beacuse they both have the a5 chip

  2. Can y’all please keep me up to date when this is done & when the video comes out. Send a link from the video to my email rroberto2@live.com please!!


  3. Can this be done in iPhone 4 iOS 5.0.1? Am I right???

  4. Seen some harsh things off impatient ppl demanding the jailbreak now, ppl don’t know how lucky they are to have not one but two dev teams working for them for free. The jailbreak will be done when it’s done! No amount of screaming and shouting will hurry the process along

    I’d personally like to thank pod2g and musclenerd for dedicating there free time to a collective cause, u guys are the best! Stay foolish, tofu x

  5. just take your time mate but get the jailbreak on the web instantly as soon as your happy with it, it’s up to your standards and you’re entirely sure that nothing can go wrong. thats all i can say. it would be nice if it was here by christmas but it’s cool if it’s not!

  6. good luck mate…most eagerly awaited…

  7. it’s not that easy boneheads. you keep demanding as though you’re paying the guy. wait til he’s confident with it. if he releases it before then, you’ll be one of the first to diss the guy

  8. People are so ungrateful and disrespectful it is sad.

  9. Be grateful for a change instead of always want want want

  10. they said this was coming out last month .. what liers

  11. RIP untethered

  12. untethered is never coming out this is still going on lol

  13. Give him time he’s trying really hard to get the untethered ready. And for you upgrade to 5.0.1 on your 4s since the untethered will only be for 5.0.1. And be patient the realese may probably come out on Christmas day as a present for all of us. Peace

  14. Thank u Jedis may the force work with u!!!! I have a 4s do I need to update to 5.01 to jailbreak or will I be able to jailbreak on 5.0 on my 4s

      The iPhone 4s currently has NO jailbreak available for users. When an exploit has been discovered for the new A5 chip, the jailbreak will be made.

    • You should. Although the baseband will be upgraded as well, but they said it can be unlocked as well. Don’t forget to ash blob your new 5.0.1 before Apple stops signing it. Use the latest Tinyumbrella to this

  15. i want it NOW !!!!! i hate when i have to reboot while at SCHOOL !

  16. Release it already man!

  17. I don’t get why 4S and ipad 2 STILL aren’t supported? What’s the problem?!

    • Austen Holland

      The problem is that the 4s and iPad 2 have the new A5 chip. While the iPhone 4, iPod touch 4g have the older A4 chip. A jailbreak exploit for the new A5 chip is yet to be found.

      • Yes it has been found. The dude just figured out a way to flush the D and I cache, which believed to have caused an untethered issue on the 4s
