As we wait for an untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.1, most are looking at pod2g, who has been the most public with his progress towards actually releasing something. He recently posted on Twitter that, with his current schedule, his newest jailbreak may still be over a month away. Now he has posted on his personal blog that he may wait even longer.
On his personal blog, pod2g has posted a poll, asking jailbreakers if he should hold on to his jailbreak until iOS 6 is released, which may be this fall. As you can see in the screen shot above, a lot of folks really want the jailbreak now, but surprisingly, 40% of the votes say hold onto the exploits for the next firmware.
I will go public and say I am in that 40%. Even though I have an iPhone 4S, and have to stay at iOS 5.0.1, suffering the poor battery life, I think he should hold off until iOS 6. We already have a jailbreak for most devices on iOS 5.1, although it is tethered for some. The tethered jailbreak is not that big of a deal. You just have make sure you keep your battery charged, and don’t reboot your device. Just my opinion.
Head over to pod2g’s blog and cast your vote!
