Jailbreak Dream Team Make More Progress On Untethered iOS 5.0.1 Jailbreak For iPhone 4S And iPad 2

Jailbreak iPod Touch On iOS 4.2.1 Redsn0w

Last week, in a post titled “Sandboxing difficulties” pod2G had announced that the iPhone Dev team, Chronic Dev team and iOS hacker planetbeing had joined him to figure out out a way to publicly release his untethered jailbreak for iPhone 4S and iPad 2 that relied on a developer account.

It looks like the jailbreak “dream team” have made more progress.

Yesterday, MuscleNerd of the iPhone Dev team had tweeted that they’re making progress:

props to @saurik for major contributions to the A5 version of @pod2G’s untether yesterday! (still no ETA, but moving forward)

pod2G had gone on to add:

@MuscleNerd @saurik And greetings to @planetbeing for the coding + research. Really great stuff to escape from the sandbox.

planetbeing – who has credited for developing xPwn – the front end of the popular jailbreak tool – Snowbreeze and for porting Linux to iPhone 3G has just provided some more details. He tweets:

And we’re out of the sandbox with @saurik invaluable help! (well, at least there’s a PoC) 😀 Turning out more complex than X-Gold 618.

So it looks like the jailbreak “dream team” have indeed figured out a way around the sandboxing difficulties that pod2G had mentioned.

In case you’re wondering, Qualcomm XMM 6180 is the baseband platform used in iPhone 4 and iPad 2. It is produced by Infineon and is marketed as the X-Gold 618. Qualcomm XMM 6610 is the baseband platform used in iPhone 4S.

As planetbeing has pointed out, the untethered jailbreak is still in the proof of concept stage and there is still quite a bit of work to be done before it can be released publicly.


pod2G has just confirmed that the sandbox has been successfully jailbroken, which means that the untethered iOS 5.0.1 jailbreak for iPhone 4S and iPad 2 is imminent.

We’ll let you know 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.
