We’ve some good news for jailbreakers waiting for an untethered jailbreak for their iOS devices on iOS 5.1.

pod2g has just tweeted that has managed to perform an untethered jailbreak on his iPhone 4 on iOS 5.1.

He just tweeted:

Heya! My iPhone 4 running iOS 5.1 is now untethered 🙂

Earlier in the week, pod2g had revealed that he had discovered 2 big vulnerabilities in iOS 5.1, in addition to the five vulnerabilities that they had discovered earlier. However, he wasn’t sure if the exploits could be used to perform an untethered jailbreak. This means that you won’t need to connect your jailbroken iPhone on iOS 5.1 to the computer on every reboot.

But not surprisingly, he has managed to successfully jailbreak his iPhone 4 on iOS 5.1. It remains to be seen if the untethered jailbreak will also work with iPhone 4S and the new iPad.
