iPad 2 caught on camera running Cydia with an untethered iOS 5.01 jailbreak

Chronic Dev Team member pod2g has again teased everyone waiting for an iPhone 4S and iPad 2 untethered jailbreak. This time he has released a picture of an iPad 2 running Cydia after being jailbroken by the soon to be released untethered iOS 5.01 jailbreak.

We have already seen a demo video of an iPhone 4S running with an untethered jailbreak a few days ago and we were told then that we only had to wait a few more. Now with this release, all we hear is “No more to say!” We assume that this means that the untethered jailbreak for A5 devices is now complete and may be released as early as this week.

Non-A5 iPhone and iPad owners can untethered jailbreak iOS 5.0.1 right now.

iPad 2 caught on camera running Cydia with an untethered iOS 5.01 jailbreak


I think I speak for a lot of people when I say this. I don't care about another picture, video, blog post that shows a dev with a jailbreak. This news makes me miss my blackberry even more.

All the updated twitters and pictures etc from the jb developers is definitely maddening. I keep wondering why they are updating the general public so much compared to previous releases. My best guess is that they AREN'T doing it to tease us. They are probably doing it for Apple's eyes so that Apple can release 5.1 firmware.

Enough, stop reporting on reports of a jailbroken A5 device. It gets people like "thexend" to rush the development team of responsible for the jailbreak. It will come out when the team wants to release it. If you want it out faster then just jailbreak an A5 device yourself, and see how long that takes. Enough of this NEW [insert A5 device here] JAILBREAK CAUGHT ON CAMERAOMGOMGOMGOMG.
patience is a virtue.

its the guy making the jailbreak who posted this image... if he didn't want the attention he could have just not posted it

What they are doing is testing the jailbreak on all devices to make sure that it works / performs well before they do a general release to the world !! And like it was said before, if you can't wait !! Do it your self. ( jailbreak ) let them do what they do best !!!

Hi guys.. I wanna know currently i am having ipad 2 on ios 5.00. Do u guys think i can upgrade it to ios 5.0.1? I am afraid after i upgrade it, i cant downgrade again and the jailbreak that is released later is just compatible with ios 5.0 and i gotta wait again.. Lol.. And is ios 5.01 really saves battery life of 3g ipad 2? Thanks everyone..

If you want to jailbreak, you need to upgrade to 5.0.1. If you read the title, it says Jailbreak for 5.0.1. If you wait and Apple pushes out 5.1 then you will not be able to get 5.0.1 and will not be able to jailbreak.

I like the helpful information you provide in your articles. I'll bookmark your weblog and take a look at again here regularly. I am moderately certain I'll be told many new stuff proper right here! Best of luck for the next!
