Untethered iPhone 4S and iPad 2 Jailbreak Hits Hurdle

Posted on January 5, 2012 by

Jailbreak developer pod2g announced earlier this week to expect an iPhone 4S and iPad 2 untethered jailbreak sometime next week, but now he’s run into a hurdle.

pod2g updated his blog with the following:

The exploit I used to inject the untethering files to the 4S relies on having a developer account, and can’t be released publicly.It’s the same reason why @MuscleNerd has an iPad 2 tethered jailbreak but couldn’t distribute it. So, we need to find a distributable exploit to remount the system partition read/write and to set Corona files at the correct places.

We’ll keep you updated on pod2g’s progress, but right now it’s not sounding like it will be released next week. If you have a non-A5 iOS device you’d like to jailbreak, check out our step-by-step instructions.
