Here is another great news and another step closer to the upcoming untethered jailbreak. As we told you earlier that Pod2g has successfully jailbroken both A4 and A5 based devices running on iOS 5.1. We have also told you that he will test his exploits on iOS 5.1.1 firmware. Well the good news is that his exploits also works with the latest firmware. Which means an untethered jailbreak for both iOS 5.1 and iOS 5.1.1 for all devices.
Pod2g has tested his jail break on iOS 5.1.1 running on the new iPad and it worked perfectly fine. He has confirmed this in a tweet:
OK, tested on an iPad 3,1 running 5.1.1. Jailbroken untethered. :-) No issue.
Now coming to the estimated time of arrival, Pod2g has earlier confirmed that it will be released to the public in a few weeks. But now that he has also tested it on the iOS 5.1.1 so we get it a little sooner. Everything related to the jailbreak has been completed and all they need to do is to package these exploits in a tool. We don’t know what they are going to call it, Greenpois0n or Absinthe.
