pod2g who had recently revealed that his untethered jailbreak works on iPhone 4 and iPad 3 on iOS 5.1.1 and iOS 5.1 has just posted the FAQ for the iOS 5.1.x untethered jailbreak.

The good news is that pod2g could release the iOS 5.1.x untethered jailbreak in a couple of weeks.

He writes on his blog:

The poll about releasing now or waiting for 6.0 ended with a 64% / 33% to release ASAP. Where is the link ? ETA ? How much % done ? etc.

As I said earlier in twitter, there’s still a lot to do to have a user friendly and well tested tool to install the jailbreak on end users devices. Expect a release in a couple of weeks.

Will it be compatible with my <any random iOS device> ?

It will be compatible with any device running iOS 5.1.1 except iPod 3G, iPhone 3Gs and ATV3 (right now, may change in a near future, nobody knows).Yeah, I said _any_ , which means yeah <your iOS device>.

Why is it so slow to release now that the iPad 3,1 has been demoed ?

There are 16 different devices out there to work on and to test. It takes time.

May I be a beta tester ?

No, sorry. Only really trusted people (that can be counted on one hand) could have access to the jailbreak. I don’t want any leak to happen.

What if I offer you 1,000,000$ ?

That doesn’t change a thing.

So pod2g’s untethered jailbreak that is expected to be released in couple of weeks, will be compatible with iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPad 3, iPad 2, iPad 1, iPod touch 4G and Apple TV 2 running iOS 5.1.1. It remains to be see if he can figure out a way to also jailbreak Apple TV 3 by that time.

Until then, iPhone 4S and iPad 2 users can use the latest of Redsn0w to downgrade to iOS 5.0.1 and jailbreak their device using Absinthe jailbreak.


pod2g has just tweeted that his untethered jailbreak doesn’t work with iPod touch 3G, so it is unlikely to work with iPhone 3GS. He has updated the FAQ, so we’ve updated the post accordingly.
