Chronic Dev team has been one of the teams working on an untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.
However, few days back they revealed things were not looking too good as Apple may have fixed most of the exploits that they had discovered in iOS 5 beta.
They instead released a tool called C-Dev Reporter, which enables iOS device users to send device crash reports to Chronic Dev team that could be helpful in finding new vulnerability in iOS.
If you’re eagerly waiting for an untethered jailbreak then we finally have some good news, iOS Hacker – pod2G, who has been a member of the Chronic Dev team has just tweeted a link to a YouTube video to demo the iOS 5 untethered jailbreak:
🙂 iOS 5.0 untethered jailbreak demo
We’ve not been able to play the video as we get some copyright related error message so it has been difficult to confirm it. (We’ll update the post with the video as soon as the issue is fixed by pod2G)
It is not clear if the C-Dev Reporter tool helped the Chronic Dev team to develop the jailbreak for iOS 5, but the good news it is an untethered jailbreak. pod2g hasn’t provided any ETA on when the tool to jailbreak iOS 5 (untethered) will be released to the public. pod2G also hasn’t revealed if it will support iPad 2 and iPhone 4S, but we hope it does.
It looks like pod2g has removed the video, hopefully he will sort out the issue soon.
pod2g has just tweeted that he is uploading a new version without the music, which was causing the copyright related error message.
We have updated the post with the demo video of iOS 5 untethered jailbreak.
pod2g had demoed the untethered jailbreak on an iPod touch running iOS 5.0. He has tweeted that he will test it on iOS 5.0.1 shortly. However, he doesn’t have an iPhone 4S or iPad 2 to test the jailbreak. So we may have to wait a little longer to find out.
pod2g has confirmed that it will work with iOS 5.0.1
