iOS 5.0.1 Untethered Jailbreak Achieved for iPhone 3GS, iPod touch 4G, iPad 1, Apple TV2


Pod2G recently announced on twitter the successful iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak for the iPhone 4, and now he has added the iPhone 3GS, iPod touch 4th gen, first gen iPad, and Apple TV2 (on 4.4.3), as noted on his short and sweet blog entries:

Apple TV 2 4.4.3 untethered

Done also. Rush mode = off for today.

Will be able to test in some days, thanks to @firecore that’d ship me an Apple TV 2 for testing !

Thanks mate ! That’s awesome.

iPod 4G 5.0.1 untethered

This one too ! 🙂

iPhone 3Gs 5.0.1 untethered

Code done. Testing tomorrow also !

iPad 1 5.0.1 untethered

Code is done, testing tomorrow with a friend’s device.

Just to let you know my progress in real time.

During the first week of November, pod2g discovered the untether exploit for iOS 5. It was only four days ago that he demonstrated his jailbroken third gen iPod touch on video, that takes advantage of user land exploit:

The exploit is user-land, rely on a user ROP payload and a kernel write anywhere exploit.

Every iOS device now has coded iOS 5 untethered jailbreaks, except for the iPhone 4S and iPad 2. Pod2G noted he doesn’t have access to those devices to test the new exploits on. As for a timeline when these jailbreaks will be released, there is no ETA. We’ll have to be patient as always, and if you want to support pod2g, you can send a donation via his blog.

    Personally I’m most excited for the AppleTV one, it’s the only device I really need to be jailbroken. No surprises FireCore hooked him up with an AppleTV, really smart move. Can’t wait to try AirPlay mirroring with my 4S.

    Looking forward to the 4S jailbreak..

    That is until 5.1 is released next week.

    Just don’t update

  • There is a tethered jailbreak for the Apple TV 2 that works fine with airplay mirroring. The tether just makes it so you can’t unplug your TV without having to boot it with the USB cable. 

    I’ve been running that since I got my apple TV on the weekend with no problems.

    Could we legitimately assume it’s safe to upgrade to 5.0.1?

    Yes but Not if you rely on a carrier unlock.

    WHEN WILL WE BE ABLE TO GET THE IPAD 2 UPDATE… THIS SUXXXXX… To downgrade 4.3.5 into 4.3.3 is too complicated..
