A couple of days back, Pod2g confirmed that a successful untethered iOS 5.1.1 jailbreak has been achieved which also works on the new iPad. He further said that a public release is still a few weeks away as he wants to make a nice, user friendly jailbreak tool for his newly found jailbreak exploits. Today, he has published some answers to the common questions he has been asked lately via emails and tweets in the form of a short FAQ on his blog in which he has confirmed an iOS 5.1.x untethered jailbreak release within 2 weeks.
Here is what he’s written:
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.
There you go folks, an exciting news to start your day!
