Few days back, pod2g revealed that his untethered jailbreak works on iPhone 4 running iOS 5.1.

He has now tweeted that the untethered jailbreak also work on the new iPad (iPad 3,1) running iOS 5.1.

pod2g just tweeted:

Hey. iPad 3,1 running iOS 5.1 untethered. Next on the list: stabilizing the payload, then trying 5.1.1.

Couple of weeks back, 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.

But he has managed to successfully jailbreak iPhone 4 and the new iPad (iPad 3,1). It remains to be seen if the untethered jailbreak will also work with iPhone 4S and iPad 2 powered by Apple’s A5 chip, but the fact that it has worked with the new iPad powered by Apple’s A5X chip, it is almost certain that it will work on them as well.

It will also be interesting to see if pod2g’s untethered jailbreak also works on iOS 5.1.1 that was released by Apple earlier in the week. Stefan Esser aka i0n1c who had also managed to jailbreak the new iPad running iOS 5.1, has revealed that his untethered jailbreak works on iOS 5.1.1 as well, though he has categorically stated that he doesn’t plan to release the jailbreak.


pod2g has clarified that since his untethered jailbreak works on iPhone 4 and iPad 3, it should work with other iOS 5.1 devices like iPhone 4S and iPad 2 as well. But it may not work with Apple TV 3. He has just tweeted:

If it works on iPad 3 and iPhone 4, I can say it’ll work on any device. The ATV3 may be out tho… :/
