iPhone 4S & iPad 2 Jailbreak for iOS 5.0.1 Coming As Soon As Next Week

Jan 3, 2012 - 27 Comments

iPhone 4S jailbreak is coming soon 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.

      I want the Android Look (or another interface) without having to change phones and wasting all the apps I bought. I get bored with the Apple Interface of just apps

    Hey , nothing cool for jailbreak I think all of you for business only.

    If you can’t unlock, what’s the point of jaibreak?? …..Ultrasn0w and gevey, what’s going on ??? give us something!! baseband 04.08.11 still hopeless…….

    • Matt says:

      You can buy unlocked iPhone and iPhone 4S models, you just pay more.

      • MuTz777 says:

        Try Preserving the BB from iOS 4.3.3 to iOS 5. Use PwnageTool in the mac or sn0wbreeze in windows. Then use Gevey sim. Most probably it will get unlocked. Their site includes BB uptp 04.10 so yours should work.

    Hey Hey guys.
    Jailbreak is awesome! U don’t need it only for unlocks! U can too all sorts like system tweaks n stuff! They put hard effort behind to produce a jailbreak! Have some respect!

    Sorry guys! Apparently, pod2g used some files which require a developer account! Release won’t be too soon!

    Thats great for them but what about us with iphone 4 with 5.0.1, 4.11.8 baseband I upgraded from 3gs to 4 and the guy I got the phone from already upgraded to 4.11.8 before I knew it was a bad thing but I was able to jailbreak it with the new untethered 5.0.1 but I still cant use my sim chip on it so I bought a h2o sim to make calls until they make an 4.11.8 unlock but I find it kinda odd that they found this for the newer iphone and ipad but not for iphone 4 4.11.8

    • MuTz777 says:

      Unlock is different from Jailbreak. Don’t Confuse the two. The hackers don’t seem like they are going to further work on that unlock for two reasons:
      1. A lot of Asian companies like Applenberry are working on the game. They released their Gevey Sim.
      2. Apple now sells iPhones which come unlocked everywhere.

      If you can reach the carrier the phone is locked to, then you can ask them to unlock the phone for you. Legally, they are required to, unless you did something illegal in between.
