Untethered jailbreak on iOS 5.0.1 shown off

pod2g has shown off an iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak running on an iPhone 4.

Here is a new video demo of the current status of the 5.0.1 jailbreak running on an iPhone 4. This is meant to reassure people that were thinking it only works on older iPods. The jailbreak is near ready for prime time (excluding 4S and iPad 2).

Hopefully iPhone 4S and iPad 2 owners won't have too long to wait, however, as he previously said he'd overcome the cache issues on A5 devices -

Either way, looks like they're finally nearing the end zone in the land of untethered. Don't forget to support jailbreak devs and donate when you can if you find their tools useful.

Untethered jailbreak on iOS 5.0.1 shown off


Perhaps they're waiting for 5.1 to be released so Apple can't close the exploit straight away.
If waiting is an issue then step up yourself and release one......

I can barely see what they are doing on the phone, and why is it SO SLOW, if mine were that slow I'd be sleeping by the time the wheel stopped spinning

This may not be the most beneficial place to inquire about this, but I'm searching for a pest management provider inside the pittsburgh region and have no way to find out who is the most effective. I found this company that is truly close to me and wanted to see if any one has any critiques on them. Spectrum Pest Control, 3058 West Liberty Avenue, Dormont, PA 15216 - (412) 446-2802
