iPad 3 Running iOS 5.1.1 Jailbroken

iOS Hacker Stefan Esser aka i0n1c who had successfully jailbroken the new iPad running iOS 5.1, has just revealed that has also jailbroken his 4G LTE iPad 3 running iOS 5.1.1.

iOS 5.1.1 was just released, which includes some improvements and bug fixes.

i0n1c tweeted:

Ohhh no while I was sleeping my girlfriend accidentally upgraded my iPad 3 to iOS 5.1.1

Along with the tweet he has published a photo, which shows Cydia running on his 4G LTE iPad 3 running iOS 5.1.1.

It means that the exploit he had used for the untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.1 still works with iOS 5.1.1. Unfortunately, don’t get your hopes up as i0n1c has categorically stated that he doesn’t plan to release the untethered jailbreak.

Though Cydia reports it as iPad 3 (AT&T), i0n1c has clarified that his uses 4G LTE iPad 3 on Verizon’s network.

BTW You have to blame Saurik for the AT&T stuff in Cydia. He wrongly calls iPad3,3 the iPad3 AT&T.

pod2g who has been also working on the untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.1 has made quite a lot of progress and had managed to untether jailbreak his iPhone 4 running iOS 5.1. But it is not clear if the exploits that he has discovered in iOS 5.1 for the untethered jailbreak have been patched by Apple in iOS 5.1.1 as pod2g hasn’t said anything about the latest iOS software update yet.

Meanwhile, MuscleNerd has revealed that it is still possible to downgrade to iOS 5.0.1 from iOS 5.1.1 using the unreleased method that iH8sn0w had discovered.

5.1.1 shows Apple knows about an unreleased technique to downgrade A5 devices to 5.0.1 with saved blobs (but left it  alone..hmm)
