MuscleNerd Pushes A Quick Info Sheet For iOS 5.1.1 Untethered Jailbreak


For those who’ve been following @pod2g’s blog and twitter streams must know that his team has made substantial progress regarding iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak and are getting pretty close to a final release. Today, Dev-Team’s @MuscleNerd has also shed some light on the highly anticipated jailbreak further suggesting that an untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.1.1 may be released by the end of this week.

He tweeted a link to a quick info sheet which clarifies a lot of things. Here it is:

* All info below is tentative and subject to last minute refinements

* @pod2g’s 5.1.1 jailbreak+untether is working out great. All devices are covered except for AppleTV3,1, which currently has no path for jailbreaking. – the initial 5.1.1 plan used a kernel exploit from @westbaer which unfortunately precluded use in iPod3,1 and iPhone2,1 – @planetbeing stepped up and provided a kernel exploit that covers both of those. Those two JBers are the bomb!

* The 5.1.1 A5 JB is very similar to the A5 5.0.1 JB. @pimskeks has done a tremendous job supporting both 5.0.1 and 5.1.1 in absinthe

* Similar to 5.0.1, there will also be a 5.1.1 CLI “cinject” binary and redsn0w version of the 5.1.1 JB+untether. Absinthe, cinject, and redsn0w will all provide the same JB in different fashions. – timing is indeterminate. Plans are for this week, but a number of factors can influence that.

* For those wishing to donate, we’ve set up a new 5.1.1 paypal URL:

* Please don’t pirate AppStore apps (seriously, please do not).

Just now, @pod2g has also written a blog post quoting the same info sheet as above.

    Great work guys. However, iOS 6 presentation at WDC will be on June 11. By the time JB is released , we will be 9 days away from WDC. It may have been better to kill two birds with one stone and waited for iOS 6 release. That way, iOS 6 will be jail broken on release and we won’t have to wait months for the Dev team to break iOS 6. just a thought…

     Impossible to predict what will be in iOS6 and how similar or different it could be from 5.1.1. It could easily be a total revamp (when they would have to start from scratch). It makes more sense to just do it now so everyone waiting can jailbreak and not update (at least those who can hold off)

    What’s the difference between cinject, absinthe, and redsnow?
