Dev Team Jailbreak iPhone 4S and iPad 2 [iOS 5]

It has taken sometime, but we finally have some good news regarding jailbreak for iPhone 4S and iPad 2.

MuscleNerd has just tweeted that iPhone Dev team has managed to jailbreak iPhone 4S and iPad 2, but he is calling it a preliminary jailbreak and as there is “lots of work” left before the jailbreak is released to the public.

MuscleNerd revealed the good news in a series of tweets:

VERY preliminary 4S JB: (Huge missing pieces prevent public release. LOTS of work left)

here’s the full ioreg output for the 3 planes:

yeah same for iPad2 (but with the same big hurdles ahead too before a public release is possible)

yes it’s all after iBoot is out of the picture

(For completeness (& post-verification this is real), here’s the iPad2 iOS5 ioreg dump .. 4S is earlier in timeline)

hah it’s just a really nerdy way of providing proof (but there’s also some technical detail in them that’s useful)

He has also published the following photos of a jailbroken iPhone 4S running Cydia and a video of jailbroken iPad 2:
