A lot of people are asking about the iOS 5 jailbreak. Well the good news is that jailbreak for iOS 5 on iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad 1, iPod Touch 3G and iPod Touch 4G is already completed. Its already jailbroken using the Limera1n exploit. Remember its a tethered jailbreak. For untethered jailbreak iOS 5, you have to wait.
Famous developer and iPhone Dev Team key member, MuscleNerd has posted an image of jailbroken iPod Touch 4G on iOS 5.

GeoHot’s Limera1n history:
If you are unaware, back at the time of iOS 4, GeoHot developed a very strong jailbreak exploit. But instead of releasing his exploit he used the work on which Comex was working on. He used Comex’s work and developed his exploit on top of it to release Limera1n. It is said that he saved his own exploit for the future iOS devices. Anyways forget about the one which he never released. The Limera1n is still there and its helping us. The reason is very simple, its a Bootrom level exploit which operates at the hardware level and Apple cannot fix it as they can not revise the same products with new hardware design.
Expected release of Untethered iOS 5 Jailbreak:
Do not expect the untethered iOS 5 jailbreak very soon. Of course they will wait for iOS 5 public version. Right now iOS 5 is in its first beta. Apple will release more betas followed by a Golden Master version before the public version is released.
What about Limera1n exploit to jailbreak iOS 5 on iPad 2 ???
Remember the Limera1n exploit is NOT capable of running iPad 2 device. As we have told you eariler, Lime Ra1n is a Bootrom level Jailbreak exploit which means it is capable of operating at the hardware level. It was made for the A4 chip that is used inside the iOS devices. The iPad 2 device on the other hand uses A5 chip instead of A4. So it is currently not jailbroken as there is no bootrom level jailbreak for iPad 2.
