Untethered Jailbreak for A5 devices is almost around the corner, it could be only days before we see it open in the wild.
The good news comes for Jailbreak iOS 5 on A5 devices after 520+ days spent by PlanetBeing. He recently tweeted about the progress on 11th January, updating that he had managed to escape the Apple Sandbox.
The most recent update which has brightened up Twitter users timeline today has come from PlanetBeing. The announcement that he has finally managed to get his iPhone 4S to run unsigned code and even more recently, iPad 2 was jailbroken to run Cydia:
iOS 5.0.1 Untethered Jailbreak on iPhone 4S, iPad 2
Important: Attention all A5: iPad 2, iPhone 4S users
Are you still rocking iOS 4.3.3 on your jailbroken iPad 2? Time to bite the bullet and upgrade to iOS 5.0.1. If you don’t, you might lose your window to jailbreak iOS 5.
Apple is due to release 5.1 soon. When that happens, they will stop signing 5.0.1. This means you will only be able to restore to 5.1. 5.1 breaks the upcoming jailbreak. If you are currently a 4s owner or an ipad 2 owner, you will want to Update your device to 5.0.1 ASAP. This way when the jailbreak is released, you will be able to use it. If you do not restore to 5.0.1 now, in a few days when 5.1 is out, you may never be able to get from 5.0 to 5.0.1 and only option will be to wait again.
We know the untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.0.1 for iPhone 4S and iPad 2 are definitely coming, so if you want to make sure you have an iOS 5 jailbreak this year, better try to live without your jailbreak tweaks for the next couple of days and take the plunge into iOS 5.0.1.
