#Update2 (Major) – @pod2g has successfully applied the jailbreak to the iPhone 4S and the iPad 2 and his friend @DHowett made a video demonstrating the Jailbreak.
#Update1 – pod2g updated his blog just hours ago saying that “@planetbeing escaped from the sandbox with the help of @saurik. Thanks to their awesome work, there should be nothing left blocking for the A5 jailbreak.Now it should be a matter of days. Still no precise ETA of course.”
It’s only a matter of days now guys so stay tuned.
So, Recently a ‘Dream Team’ was recruited by @pod2g to help him work on the A5-jailbreak (iPad2 & iPhone4S).This clearly indicates that we could expect a Jailbreak in the next week or so (No confirmation though).There is still no news on how the jailbreak is gonna be implemented.What tool ? Will be Redsn0w ? Probably but No confirmation yet again.
Via pod2g’s blog –
1) @planetbeing, the legendary hacker behind iPhone Linux and lot of jailbreaks (seehttp://theiphonewiki.com/wiki/index.php?title=User:Planetbeing) has joined the A5 research!2) The famous @MuscleNerd (http://theiphonewiki.com/wiki/index.php?title=User:MuscleNerd), the leader of the iPhone Dev Team, who did a lot of tests for Corona and whom integrated it and made it simple in redsn0w is willing to help also.3)And last, but not least @p0sixninja (http://theiphonewiki.com/wiki/index.php?title=User:Posixninja), the leader of the Chronic Dev Team, and my partner for years on iPhone security research has started to code and fuzz the Apple sandbox.We now have a dream team to find a path for a public release of the A5 jailbreak.
Cross your fingers.
So,let’s all just do what pod2gs’ told us to do i.e. Cross our fingers.
Stay tuned for more.
