Chronic Dev team broke the bad news earlier today that the exploits that they had discovered in iOS 5 beta that could have resulted in an untethered jailbreak for iOS device users and more importantly a jailbreak for iPhone 4S and iPad 2 users, has been patched by Apple in the final version of iOS 5.
MuscleNerd tweeted few hours back:
Crazy Thanksgiving weekend! Very promising 4S unlock (http://twitpic.com/7kku4t) is in the works (Not i4, just 4S..that’s crazy part)
It means that they have discovered out an exploit in the A5 processor that powers iPhone 4S and iPad 2 that will allow users to unlock their iPhone 4S so that they can use it with any other GSM carrier.
MuscleNerd has also posted this image to confirm the unlock for iPhone 4S:
Since you first need to jailbreak the iPhone to unlock it, it looks like Dev team is gearing up to launch a jailbreak and unlock for iPhone 4S. Let’s hope that while the unlock will only be available for iPhone 4S users, it will at least support an untethered jailbreak for iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS along with the iPads and iPod touches.
Dev team haven’t provided an ETA on when it will be released but as always, we’ll keep you posted if there are 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.
