iPhone 4S iOS 5.0.1 Untethered Jailbreak Coming ‘In a Week’ Says Pod2g


Further information has been provided by @pod2g in regards to the status of the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak. A few hours ago pod2g sent out the following on twitter:

I made a step today for the A5. With some luck we could expect a release in a week.

Yes, upgrade your 4S and iPad 2 to 5.0.1.

Under his advice, updating to iOS 5.0.1 will be safe in preparation for this jailbreak (however, if you require the ultrasn0w unlock–only update via custom firmware restores via redsn0w/PwnageTool). Exciting times indeed.

Pod2g previously solved the iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak for A4 devices, and provided the info to the Chronic Dev Team and iPhone Dev Team to release so he could concentrate on the A5 untether. What emerged was updated jailbreak tools redsn0w and PwnageTool, and the Corona untether available via Cydia.

He also notes he has closed comments on his blog, as most were made by people who are downright crazy. Stay tuned for the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 jailbreak!

    I am very proud of pod2 CONGRATULATIONS!

    What about people who need the unlock do we need to update to 5.0.1.

  • No, only update to newer versions of iOS via custom firmware created by either redsn0w or PwnageTool if you need the unlock.

  • Jbohn

    No news on the unlock for 5.0.1? I’m stuck there…

  • 44motleycrue44

    Guess we have to wait for a tool for the 4s custom firmware to upgrade to the 5.0.1 to preserve the 5.0 baseband.

    The only reason I upgraded to 5.0.1 was pod2g

  • Gen

    By “unlock” , do you mean that you’re iPhone can be used with any network(sim card)?


  • Maverick

    Great work, pod2g!

  • 44motleycrue44

    Yes exactly mines locked to telus and I need to use it with rogers here in canada.

    Why don’t you use a 30 dollar Gevey Ultra sim. It works, it’s cheap and it’s all over the place. Check Kijiji and Craigslist.

  • 44motleycrue44

    Frankie can you confirm a gevey sim works 100% in a iphone 4s.

  • Anon

    Meh.  I’ll believe it when I see it 🙂

    “With some luck”… means he’s unsure.  I suspect it’s going to take him longer than a week, after reading his recent A5 FAQ post.

  • The A4 release came quickly and swiftly. I assume once we see some videos of the A5 untether, it will be close after that.
