Seems like everything is ready. We are waiting for iOS 5 public version to be released tomorrow. Greenpois0n iOS 5 untethered jailbreak for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch is what we are looking for and it is expected soon after the release of iOS 5. Chronic Dev Team is very confident to release their untethered jailbreak exploit for iOS 5. They have already announced that they have found 5 exploits to jailbreak iOS 5 during MyGreatFest, the first jailbreak convention now named as JailbreakCon. Updates to this post are available at the end.
Greenpois0n iOS 5 Untethered Jailbreak compatibility:
The upcoming Greenpois0n iOS 5 will provide an untethered jailbreak solution for iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad 1, iPod Touch 3G and iPod Touch 4G. Wonder whether it will work on the A5 based devices?? Yes it will also jailbreak iPhone 4S and iPad 2.
It is to be noted that iOS 5 jailbreak by Chronic Dev Team is a userland and NOT a bootrom level exploit. You can find the difference between an bootrom and userland exploits at the end of this post. Also there is a confusion that these 5 different exploits found by Chronic Dev Team can offer 5 different jailbreak solution. Joshua Hill as known as p0sixninja, key member of Chronic Dev has made it clear that they will require all these exploits to offer one jailbreak. It does not matter to us if only one jailbreak serves its purpose.
Difference between Bootrom and Userland exploits:
Bootroms are the ones which are hardware based exploits and cannot be fixed until there is a change or upgrade in the hardware by the company. For example, if Geohot finds a bootrom level exploit for the iPad 2 device, it will not be possible to fix it as Apple cannot revise the hardware. If they upgrade the hardware in the iPad 3, then it will be fixed otherwise no chance. Such vulnerabilities which results in a hardware based exploit are normally complicated to find. On the other hand, User land exploits are the ones found in the software. These can be patched by Apple with software update. For example, Comex found a PDF vulnerability and developed JailbreakMe to jailbreak iOS 4.3.3. Apple patched his exploit by releasing iOS 4.3.4 and iOS 4.3.5. Coming back to the point. We are expecting Greenpois0n iOS 5 untethered jailbreak for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch as soon as the firmware releases.
