Couple of days back pod2G had revealed that with some luck he may be able to release an untethered jailbreak for iPhone 4S and iPad 2 users who have been eagerly waiting for it.
He has just published another post where he has provided more details about the untethered jailbreak for iPhone 4S and iPad 2 in the form of an FAQ.
How could pod2g have an untethered 4S and dev teams still haven’t released tools to achieve this at home ?
The exploit I used to inject the untethering files to the 4S relies on having a developer account, and can’t be released publicly.
It’s the same reason why @MuscleNerd has an iPad 2 tethered jailbreak but couldn’t distribute it.
So, we need to find a distributable exploit to remount the system partition read/write and to set Corona files at the correct places.
Why A4 version of Corona was easier to release ?
Because a tethered jailbreak is a good way to install Corona!
Why don’t you do a tethered jailbreak then ?
A tethered jailbreak also relies on an exploitable vulnerability that we still haven’t found yet !
pod2g, release this stuff quick, [your insult here], I’ve waited enough now.
If I could, I would !
Let’s hope he figures out an untethered jailbreak that can be publicly distributed.
