iPhone 4S & iPad 2 Jailbreak for iOS 5.0.1 Coming As Soon As Next Week
The highly anticipated jailbreak for iPhone 4S and iPad 2 running iOS 5.0.1 is coming as soon as next week, according to a recent tweet from the hacker pod2g, who is working on the project. The comment suggested a hurdle for the iPhone 4S and iPad 2′s A5 processor has been overcome, and stated that “With some luck we could expect a release in a week.”
@Pod2g is the same developer who uncovered the untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.0.1 that was released in a variety of popular jailbreak tools, including redsn0w, PwnageTool, and Corona. The upcoming jailbreak for the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 is also expected to be untethered, meaning the device will be able to reboot freely without the assistance of a software boot tethered to a computer.
This will be the first jailbreak available for the iPhone 4S, and the first jailbreak for iPad 2 running iOS 5.
