pod2g: iOS 5.1.1 Untethered Jailbreak Release is Just a ‘Matter of Days’ Away

greenpois0n absinthe

pod2g has just tweeted that the release of the iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch is almost ready and the release is just ‘a matter of days’ away.

pod2g tweeted:

Thanks to awesome work of @planetbeing and @pimskeks, we’re near ready for a release. Now it’s a matter of days.

As reported earlier, pod2g’s has tested and confirmed that his untethered jailbreak works on the following iOS devices:

  • iPhone 3Gs
  • iPhone 4
  • iPhone 4 CDMA
  • iPhone 4S
  • iPad 1
  • iPad 2 Wifi
  • iPad 2 GSM
  • iPad 2 CDMA
  • iPad 3 Wifi
  • iPad 3 CDMA
  • iPod 3G
  • iPod 4G
His iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak currently does not work on Apple TV 3. Here is the list of devices, he still needs to test and confirm if it works on them:
  • iPad 2 Wifi, R2
  • iPad 3 Global
  • AppleTV 2

But pod2g is quite confident that his untethered jailbreak will work on all iOS 5.1.1 devices except for Apple TV 3.

It remains to be seen if pod2g and Chronic Dev team will release the jailbreak at the Hack in the Box conference that starts tomorrow, May 21st and ends on May 25th, as they have hinted of some jailbreak goodness during the event. With the latest tweet, it is quite possible.


We’ve updated the list of devices that pod2g’s iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak will support as he seems to have just updated his blog as well. Thanks Stan for the heads up!

We’ll let you know as soon as we’ve any further updates so don’t forget to join our Facebook Fan page or follow us on Twitter or add us on Google+ or subscribe to our RSS feed.

    • Thanks Stan, updated the post.

    • Dufy

      I am crossing my fingers that iPad 2 R2 will get on the list of confirmed devices!!! Good work guys. Thanks

      • black19

        sorry for asking mate.. how can i know if my ipad 2 is R2 ?
        what is R2 btw ..

    • iPad 3 global? Is that meaning the WiFi + Not 4G in the UK?

      • DJZeratul

        the iPad 3 Global is the GSM LTE version. The AT&T version here in the US, or whatever GSM provider you have worldwide. The WiFi version in the UK is no different than the WiFI US version and will be supported. The GSM LTE version will likely also be supported, but hasnt been tested yet.

        • Sasnik

          Hello! I did not fully understand You…I have iPad 3 UNLOCKED that means it works with any provider’s SIM card… So is the current 5.1.1 untethered supported as well ?

  • Krakimon

    my god guys ur making the world better (more adjustable) place :)))
    Looking forward for this one cheers…

  • Cuddy

    Wow after two months of patiently waiting… Thanks guys…. Wonder when the unlock for 5.1/ 5.1.1 will be released?

  • Grecco

    Need to get working on that Apple TV 3 jailbreak. Second hand ATV2’s are going for up to £250 on ebay due to greed and a lack of an ATV3 jailbreak.

  • Olaf

    • herro

  • pkrfan97

    Question: I have a iPhone 4 already running a tethered jailbreak on 5.1.1 using redsn0w. When this untethered jailbreak releases how do I switch over? Do I just jailbreak over the existing tethered jailbreak? Or do I have to unjailbreak my phone first then apply this new one?

    • Fayoz

      You just have to restore your iphone and jailbreak it

  • Quentin

    What is iPad 2 Wifi R2?

  • MrMan

    F**ck you pod2g! F***ing piece of s**t-think-my-f*ggot-logo-is-cool! Instead of stalling a gazillion times, just don’t tell us anything, ok? I have been waiting for ages now, ages!! First u confirm that u have sucessfully jailbroken it, then you “sources” say u will be done in 2 weeks, then you say that we have to wait another 2 weeks, then you tell us to wait another week for the goddamn nerd-hacking-meeting 21th may, where “something big will happen”. But nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo, we have to wait even more. This time it’s only a “matter of days”. I bettu, ur so tight, that your probably gonna stall even minutes and nanoseconds if you had the possibility to do so.
    Screw your jailbreak, and screw you! I don’t want it anymore. U have lost all of your credibility!

    • Olaf

      Wow! You sound like you are actually the piece of $h1*.
      And trust, you say you don’t want the JB anymore. But YOU will JB. That’s the kind of douchebag you are.
      When are you releasing your JB again?

      • MrMan

        I’m releasing my jailbreak in 1 week. In other words: i’m gonna say it’s gonna take another week, by the end of the week, and after that week i’ll announce that it will take some more days. After those days have past, i will set a date on a convention. When that convention has come, i will say my jailbreak is only ” a matter of days”. Only after that, after 4-5 days, i will release it.

        • Olaf

          Still a douchebag.

          • MrMan

            Wooooo, i’m a “douchebag”. That really hurt! What’s next Olafitte, you’r gonna “ground” me? And after that you will take away my Xbox for a week?

          • Olaf

            ……nope, hasn’t changed. So I won’t change my response. You are still a douchebag.

          • BloodShed

            Olaf is right. You’re clearly a “f***ing piece of s**t” douchebag, MrMan.

            With each self-entitled post you make, you look more and more like an ignorant adolescent throwing a temper tantrum.

        • Axe

          Wow !!! Brilliant post !!! What a fandroid you are !!! Faggot ..,

        • xero14

          please kill yourself

    • Joe

      so u want him to say nothing, and then people like u will cry and moan because no jailbreak. this is going quicker than 5.0.1 jailbreak, and I bet u took that one for free. he will deliver, no doubt. u keep working on your jailbreak, and the rest of us will appreciate using his. u need to seriously get a life. what an ID:10t

    • Dlove

      Yay another person who has no clue how to write code to jailbreak and sits there waiting getting irate because it’s not instant! People like this should be banned from having the jailbreak an let them beg for it! What’s the betting these people who moan have no job and want everything for free? So in between working and having a life he does what he can so you should be thankful people like this still do it for free. Sooner or later they will all just say screw you and you will never get a free jailbreak and that’s only if they decide to release it at all even make you pay for it

    • herro

      you high brah?

    • Jackobee

      Trolling or gtfo… –>

    • iOS user

      Mrman some of the things you say makes sense and of course everybody don’t wanna wait to a god damn jailbreak but when you realise that a jailbreak makes your iPhone 1000% more functional so you are gonna “say thank you GOD that you bringing pod2g to the world”. So shut the f*ck up your fa*got AND DON’T TALK ABOUT THINGS YOU DON’T A THING ABOUT AND BE GLAD THAT HE ISN’T BETRAYING US FOR MONEY AND ARE RELEASING THE JAILBREAK FOR FREE !

  • Allex
