The iPhone Dev Community have demoed what iDevice users iPad 2 and iPhone 4S users have been waiting for very excitedly. In recent video released by eminent iPhone Dev Member, Musclenerd has demoed an Untethered Jailbreak for iPad 2 and iPhone 4S.
iPad 2 has evidently been the device which has taken maximum time for Jailbreak. Till now only JailBreakMe, the online service by Comex had the ability to Jailbreak iPad 2 running on 4.3.3 or earlier. The iPad 2 and iPhone 4S is powered by the still (bootrom) unexploited dual-core A5 chip. The dual core A5 chip is not having any jailbreak for iOS 5.
About the iPad 2 the eminent hacker MuscleNerd stated in Twitter :
Here’s a short video of current JB working on iPad2: youtu.be/oJVGl1eRW2A (Just like iPhone4S, lots of hurdles remain, no ETAs)
(For completeness (& post-verification this is real), here’s the iPad2 iOS5 ioreg dump musclenerd.com/ioreg_ipad2.txt .. 4S is earlier in timeline)
In the video MuscleNerd launches the NewsStand confirming the device is on iOS 5 and than launches Cydia and hence stating that the device is having Untethered jailbreak.
The public release which is being awaited by millions of iPad 2 users hasnt been given any Release Date or any other information. The hacker however mentioned that the work is still being carried on and the release is on its way.
Later talking about the iPhone 4S he tweeted :
VERY preliminary 4S JB: twitpic.com/76vcp4 twitpic.com/76vct2 (Huge missing pieces prevent public release. LOTS of work left)
As it is clearly mentioned in the post that the tools is having huge missing pieces the public release will surely take some time.
After the release of the iOS 5 and the iPhone 4S all the iDevice users have been impatiently waiting for an Untethered jailbreak for their device. In the MyGreatFest 2011 event held in London, iPhone Dev Team had announced about 5 Userland exploits which can be used to Jailbreak iOS 5 and hence had claimed that the Untethered Jailbreak is imminent.
Also since iOS 5 was launched on October 12 and that many week’s have passed by without any announcement by the Dev Team people started to get very eager and trapped by many false Jailbreaking service and hence loosing money charged by those services which dont work.
In this video MuscleNerd has announced that the Untethered jailbreak is on its way and is receiving final touches. Also they claim that this toll will be very different from all previous tools and has many new features and options.
Currently you can Jailbreak your any iOS 5 device except iPad 2 and the iPhone 4S tethered by the RedsnOw tool. You can also use the SemiTether tool to give your device a Semi Untethered Jailbreak and hence be able to reboot your device without connecting it to a computer having RedsnOw but with limited features.
