Untethered iPhone 4S and iPad 2 Jailbreak Due Next Week, iOS 5.1 Jailbreak to Follow

Untethered iPhone 4S and iPad 2 Jailbreak Due Next Week, iOS 5.1 Jailbreak to Follow

iOS hacker and jailbreak developer pod2G has confirmed that significant progress has been made on an untethered jailbreak for the iPhone 4S and iPad 2, and expects to release the exploit as soon as next week. An untethered iOS 5.1 jailbreak is also in the works.

While an untethered jailbreak for all other devices was already released last week, the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 have yet to be jailbroken at all, untethered or not. As such, this should come as very welcome news to users of Apple’s new devices.

The jailbreak should also eventually support Apple’s forthcoming iOS 5.1 release, enabling users of Apple’s newest devices to perform an untethered jailbreak even on Apple’s latest firmware, even before it’s released. That’s pretty spectacular news all around!

While the iPad 2 and iPhone 4S jailbreak aren’t directly related (the iOS 5.1 jailbreak is expected to come at a later date), the fact that the jailbreak appears set to release is nevertheless exciting.

The untethered iOS 5.1 jailbreak has also been independently confirmed by Stefan Esser, better known to the community as ion1c, and has been backed up with separate tweets from  iOS hackers and jailbreak devs @Veence and @pod2g.

    Please explain to me what a jailbreak of either device will do for me. I own a 4s and iP2. What am I missing by not jailbreaking?

      Missing many many things.
      You get everything, customed themes,controls, and any game from the appstore without paying a dime.

    2. Chris Birks says:

      There is a lot of customisation available. Many tweaks. System settings available from notification center, an advanced notification center with multiple pages, sliding dock with more space, better multitasking, scrolling folders, much much more. And as Dan stated, there is piracy, but please don’t go down that route. For iPad there’s a tweak called RetinaPad which forces the iPad to use retina graphics, making it clear instead of fuzzy when you do 2x on iPhone apps. There are a lot of different things. Just don’t pirate apps.
