iOS 5.1.1 Untethered Jailbreak Coming Very Soon

Posted on May 14, 2012 by

pod2g updated his blog today with some new information about the untethered jailbreak for devices running iOS 5.1.1. He still has some testing to do on the jailbreak tool, but says to expect a release in a couple weeks.

I receive lots of questions either by email or twitter about the 5.1.x untethered jailbreak.

Here are some answers :

The poll about releasing now or waiting for 6.0 ended with a 64% / 33% to release ASAP. Where is the link ? ETA ? How much % done ? etc.

  • As I said earlier in twitter, there’s still a lot to do to have a user friendly and well tested tool to install the jailbreak on end users devices. Expect a release in a couple of weeks.
  • Will it be compatible with my <any random iOS device> ?
    It will be compatible with any device running iOS 5.1.1 except iPod 3G, iPhone 3Gs and ATV3 (right now, may change in a near future, nobody knows).
  • Why is it so slow to release now that the iPad 3,1 has been demoed ?

    There are 16 different devices out there to work on and to test. It takes time.

  • May I be a beta tester ?

    No, sorry. Only really trusted people (that can be counted on one hand) could have access to the jailbreak. I don’t want any leak to happen.

  • What if I offer you 1,000,000$ ?

    That doesn’t change a thing.

Be patient, it’s gonna happen.

See you my friends.
