This is perhaps one of the biggest new for iOS, iPhone and iPad users. With the release of iOS 5 and iPhone 5 being round the corner iPhone, iPad 2 and iOS users all over the world were in a state of dilemma over the possibility of no Jailbreak being available on the release of iOS 5. P0sixninja member of the Chronic Dev Team have recently announced the discovery of 5 (yes ! you’ve read it right) Userland exploits being found in the latest iPad 2. The news was declared in the MyGreatFest, a Jailbreak Convention by the iOS Jailbreak community.
P0sixninja himself was ecstatic when he announced that the number of exploits found were 5, hence we can expect that an Untethered Jailbreak of iOS 5 and iPhone 5 will be available very soon just after the release. P0sixninja himself exclaimed “it’s the record breaking number of exploits found”.
Whats even more good about the release is that the exploits are Userland. Userland exploits means that the loopholes exists in the software and not related to the hardware. Hence to Jailbreak the device we dont have to make any changes to the hardware which could be very risky. A simple patch or tool will be enough to give the device an Untethered Jailbreak.
Now the discovery of these Userland exploits means that iOS 5 and all devices based on this OS can be given Untethered Jailbreak and these exploits will even work on future releases of any new hardwares as long as it runs on iOS 5. This means real good news for all Apple enthusiasts. P0sixninja also mentioned that not only can future devices can be given Untethered Jailbreak but also it will be one of the most amazing Jailbreak given till date.
These 5 exploits were discovered by the members of the Chronic Dev Team.
