Dev Team Warn Jailbreakers to Avoid Updating to iOS 5.1.1

Jailbreak iPod Touch On iOS 4.2.1 Redsn0w

Apple has just released iOS 5.1.1 for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, which includes some improvements and bug fixes.

However, MuscleNerd of iPhone Dev team has just tweeted that jailbreakers should not update to iOS 5.1.1, especially iPhone 4S, iPad 2 and iPad 3 users if they want to jailbreak their iOS device.

MuscleNerd of iPhone Dev team just tweeted:

iOS 5.1.1 is out…jailbreakers beware!  Owners of iPhone4S or iPad2/3 should stay away from it!

On the other hand, tinkerers with older devices can tether jailbreak 5.1.1 using last month’s redsn0w (just pre-select the 5.1 IPSW)

While it is still possible to use Redsn0w to (tethered) jailbreak iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad 1, iPod touch 4G and iPod touch 3G on iOS 5.1.1, it is not clear if the exploits that pod2g has discovered in iOS 5.1 for the untethered jailbreak have been patched by Apple in iOS 5.1.1 as pod2g hasn’t said anything about the latest iOS software update yet.

So it is advisable that iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad 1, iPod touch 4G and iPod touch 3G to avoid updating to iOS 5.1.1 if they want an untethered jailbreak.

    Well i think Pod2g should update his jailbreak if he can to 5.1.1 because here we are now Apple Just Uppercutted us yet again…. Dammit.

  • roflmao

    Oh no now we going to wait another 3 months for someone to claim they have a JB and then ask for votes on wether they should wait for iOS 6 or 10 or 100000000000 to release it. ROFLMAO!!!!!

  • roflmao

    And… “it is not clear if the exploits that pod2g has discovered in iOS 5.1 for the untethered jailbreak have been patched by Apple in iOS” If you stament means anything then it would also mean the waiting for iOS 6 to release the JB as it was asked before is basically useless for Apple will and pissbily could patch an exploit even if they do not know about it or a JB has been released derp derp!!!, unless that moron 1onIc sold out to Apple. right? right? again ROFLMAO!
