We have some good news for jailbreakers. pod2g tweeted earlier today that they have all the exploits needed for a new jailbreak.
Back in March, pod2G who was part of the Jailbreak Dream team that brought us Absinthe jailbreak – the untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.0.1 for A5 powered iOS devices had said that he was actively working on finding vulnerabilities in iOS 5.1. It looks like he has managed to do it. He tweeted few hours back:
News: we have all exploits required to do a new jailbreak. I’m working on bypassing ASLR at bootup.
pod2g hasn’t provided any more details, so it is not clear if this new jailbreak is the untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.1 that we have been waiting for and will it also support iPhone 4S, iPad 2 and iPad 3.
But based on the last update, we’re assuming that it will be an untethered iOS 5.1 jailbreak for iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad 3, iPad 2, iPad 1, iPod touch 4G and iPod touch 3G.
Currently, Redsn0w that was released by the iPhone Dev team in March supports only a tethered jailbreak for iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod touch 4G and iPod touch 3G. You can only perform an untethered jailbreak on iPhone 3GS with older bootrom.
