iPhone 4S and iPad 2 imminent with new jailbreak

Notorious iPhone hacker pod2g has updated the community letting everyone know a jailbreak "dream team" has been assembled to help tackle a sandboxing issue in the Apple A5, a vital part of the exploitation process necessary for an iPhone 4S and iPad 2 jailbreak.

@planetbeing, the legendary hacker behind iPhone Linux and lot of jailbreaks has joined the A5 research! >The famous @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. >And last, but not least @p0sixninja, 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.

Most of you in the jailbreak community should instantly recognize these names, and the fact that they're now all together working in unison towards the same goal means an A5 jailbreak shouldn't be too much further out.
