Dev Team Jailbreak iPhone 4S and iPad 2 [iOS 5]

It has taken sometime, but we finally have some good news regarding jailbreak for iPhone 4S and iPad 2.

MuscleNerd has just tweeted that iPhone Dev team has managed to jailbreak iPhone 4S and iPad 2, but he is calling it a preliminary jailbreak and as there is “lots of work” left before the jailbreak is released to the public.

MuscleNerd revealed the good news in a series of tweets:

VERY preliminary 4S JB: (Huge missing pieces prevent public release. LOTS of work left)

here’s the full ioreg output for the 3 planes:

yeah same for iPad2 (but with the same big hurdles ahead too before a public release is possible)

yes it’s all after iBoot is out of the picture

(For completeness (& post-verification this is real), here’s the iPad2 iOS5 ioreg dump .. 4S is earlier in timeline)

hah it’s just a really nerdy way of providing proof (but there’s also some technical detail in them that’s useful)

He has also published the following photos of a jailbroken iPhone 4S running Cydia and a video of jailbroken iPad 2:

As always, we’ll let you know if there is any further updates, so stay tuned here at iPhone Hacks or join our Facebook Fan page or follow us on Twitter or subscribe to our RSS feed.

    • BDog_Grizzly

      Wow, Uh, dude. You can quit with the bullshit. Just because you act like you know something doesn’t make you cool. Actually, it only makes you look like a complete moron. “Next time I just won’t bother” what a fucking tool. Also, make sure you head back to first grade grammar and relearn your punctuation because it’s pathetic. Douche-bag.

      • moe

        what he said.

  • Wilfred n Raffi

    Perhaps you shouldn’t bother, it’s fair comment from Kimk69. Stop whinging like a teenage girl, most people here have iPhones whatever version.
    Ps I have a iPhone 4S and my girlfriend has a Samsung Galaxy S, wouldn’t call it rubbish like, I like it it’s very good, wouldn’t swap my iPhone though especially when JB out 🙂

  • Alvin

    Horray!!! I juz got my IP4S today after selling off my IP4. This is good news! Await results frm the Dev Team. Thumbs up everyone!

  • AmjadNavid

    Excellent new appreciate efforts guy keep it up

  • Strulf

    It’d be nice if they’d connect this with Siri so you only had to say “Siri, please jailbreak my iPhone”. 😀

    • Jason

      Not a bad idea lol.

  • onetimecomment

    Great news! I really miss SBSettings on my 4S here.

    • moe

  • BDog_Grizzly

    I’ve been waiting for this news since I purchased my 4S on release day. I’ve missed my “SMS Bites” and “5 App Dock.” Please release it soon! 😀

  • fas

    Still around a month away?

  • You

    At last, i was to sell my ipad 2 …

    • moe

      no jb for you on 433? i was lucky enough to get mine on 431. if you are still on a stock fw my prayers will be for you my friend.

  • techysavy

    That jailbreak looks like its on an iphone 4 that has siri ported to it. If you check the screenshot of siri and cydia, at the bottom it says iphone 4 and not 4S????

    • Hector

      iPhone 4S or not, i doubt it matters. If you looked at the video of the iPad 2, you can clearly see at the bottom of Cydia it says “iPad 2 WiFi iOS 5.0” Both devices have the same processor/bootloader.

    • Osva

      Correct me if I’m wrong Techysavy, but it says iPhone 4,1; which I believe means 4S.

  • iRockU

    AMAZING NEWS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Dice

    Dev team…… Thank u, u guys freaking rule, no rush on it, take your time. And thanks agian for all the years of work you all have done.

  • Bod

    where is the jailbreak for iphone 4 ios 5 untethered ??


    waiting patiently for the jailbreak i realy miss sb settings.

  • steve1010

    Hi all
    Apple stated that I can NOT jailbreak my iPhone, so what should I do? Can I just substitute the word “jailbreak” with “root”? Apple did not say anything about rooting, but it mentions something about modification of the phone? Anyway, can’t wait for a Dev. team to release a “rooting/jailbreaking” tool for the 4S. Thanks guys!

  • Tom

    See dev team always trying to get credit!!!
    It is p0sixninja that done it and was done last week…

  • Arthur

    I have a question about the ipad 2 and hope somebody can help me…

    I have an jailbreaked iphone 4 and downloaded a lot of apps that i registered to my itunes. What i want to know is if its possible to use those apps in a ipad 2 with the firmware 4.3.5 without jailbreak.

    Thanks in advance.

    • No way: iOS 5 Sync would be missing , a repo for Cydia only!

      • Arthur

        Hummm, got it… its a shame, but thanks for the answer =)

  • Gatot kaca

    Oh yes…. Finally JB for ipad2 . Hope it’s not only works on ipad2 wifi, but both wifi n 3g… Because Im stuck in 4.3.5… Thx guys, keep working.

  • Kaz

    When ??? Please tell me when the JB would be released ?
    I need it much !

  • bow deck

    months after 4.3.3 i don’t see anymore untethered jailbreak.
    is this the end of jailbreaking world?
    there’s no point showing this video with no ETA for public release.

    • Joe

      I wish they would publish a ETA or if it will ever be released.

  • Jose

  • dee

    Hi. Can I ask you a question?
    Will it jailbreak my iPad 2 iOS 5.0.1???

    • Damien

      ROFL 5.0.1?, maybe a few months after iOS 5.

  • Riley

    Does anybody know the release date for greenposi0n jailbreak 5.0/5.0.1 ??

  • Naif

    Any news of the jailbreak release?? Hope it’s goona be soon…

  • Vuong

    Good news. I love you guys, a lot of money waiting for you to save.

  • -=Nando=-

    I would love to help out if you need any alpha or beta testers. I have a 4s with 5.0.0. I don’t want to upgrade until I know it will be able to jailbreak

  • karl

    any one know any rough time the iphone 4S jailbreak will come out?

  • Robbie

    Wow, best news ever. Iphone4s and ipad2, that is so great. I am missing all the cool functionality that jailbreaking allows me. Just an iphone seems so crippled once you had a jailbreak before…

    Jailbreaking easily doubles the value of the iphone/ipad.

    Thank you so much for putting in this hard work to find a loop hole. I can only imagine how hard it must have become…

    Looking forward to the final release…

  • tech-Hack

    Guys , it won’t be coming out this year . maybe around Feb & March ,

    • fuc*! it’s very long time to wait.. where did you get this info?

      • i think you are kidding, base on my search they will untethered jailbreak 1st week or 2nd week of december…
