Jailbreak for iPhone 4S & iPad 2 Coming Soon
An official jailbreak for iPhone 4S and iPad 2 running iOS 5 is coming sooner than later, as evidenced by iPhone Dev Team member MuscleNerd posting several screenshots of the works in progress. In fact, they jailbreak has already been achieved, but there are unspecified “hurdles left” before the jailbreak will see a public release.
There are currently no time estimates, but typically these teaser screenshots and videos start to appear soon before a first beta jailbreak becomes available. The iPhone 4S and iPad 2 have been noticeably absent from the current iOS 5 jailbreak, both devices share much of the same internal hardware including the A5 CPU, and has posed a challenge to jail break. It’s unclear whether this will be a tethered or untethered jailbreak.
MuscleNerd also posted the following video to YouTube, showing the jailbreak off on an iPad 2 running iOS 5:
