For all those who had been concerned about the possibility of an Untethered Jailbreak for the iOS 5.1 devices and especially the all new iPad or the iPad 3 have had plenty of good news from the iOS hacker community. Not only was the new iPad with the iOS 5.1 Jailbroken within few hours of the release but now we have four separate exploits from several member of the Dev Team.
The three separate exploits for the iOS 5.1 Untethered jailbreak have been presented by developers:
The all new iPad or the iPad 3 has the dual-core A5X processor and is shipped with the iOS 5.1 but neither did the new processor nor the new iOS proved to be major road block in the way of an Untethered Jailbreak. Now lets take a look at various efforts for Untethered Jailbreak by the members of the Dev Team.
1. MuscleNerd :
MuscleNerd the leader of the iPhone Dev Team and the creator of the very popular Jailbreak tool Redsn0w released pictures of the new iPad (3) within few hours of the public release. The pictures released showed iPad 3 running the latest iOS 5.1 (9B176) with Cydia 1.1.5 installed.
The exploit used by MuscleNerd isnt fully ready and hence we need to wait for few days for the public release. The iOS 5.1 Untethered Jailbreak could be at the most a few weeks away. No ETA yet by the developer. One can also use to apply Untethered Jailbreak on iOS 5.1 A4 device right now itself using the latest version of the Redsn0w tool.
To be the first to know about the release of this Untethered Jailbreak follow his Twitter Account.
2. Stefan Esser a.k.a i0n1c :
The very popular iOS hacker had demoed the Untethered Jailbreak iPad 3 just few hours after MuscleNerd released pictures of the Untethered Jailbreak new iPad. The exploits used by i0n1c and MuscleNerd are completely different ways to circumvent the Apples security measures on the iOS device.
Earlier we has also seen i0nic showing off his Untethered jailbreak iPad 2 on iOS 5.1. Again we do not have any ETA neither any more information about exploit used in the Jailbreak.
3. Grant Paul (aka @chpwn) & Paul Griffin (aka @phoenixdev) :
Now that we already had two separate exploits available for the Untethered Jailbreak iOS 5.1 iPad 3 the iOS developers chpwn and pheonixdev came up with the third unique exploit used for the iOS 5.1 Untethered Jailbreak.
The only thing which may be a major roadblock for the public release of this exploit is that it needs dev account to inject the exploit code into the iOS device. Now that we all do not a dev account so a public release of this exploit can be very difficult.
However until now The Chronic Dev Team haven’t came up with any exploit used to Jailbreak iPad 3 on iOS 5.1 they can certainly use this exploit and work further on it.
Now that we have three different exploits for the Untethered Jailbreak for iOS 5.1 iPad 3 we can now say for certain that the public release is just a few weeks away at the most. Keep visiting GeekPrison.com for more instant updates.
