Untether Jailbreak Exploit Found by POD2G, Untethered iOS 5 Jailbreak Possible Now
Thanks to the limera1n bootrom exploit from geohot we all are able to enjoy atleast tethered jailbreak on any iOS release for iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod Touch 4G, 3G, Apple TV 2G & iPad 1. However not all are comfortable with tethered jailbreak. If you are wondering what is the difference between Tethered & Untethered Jailbreak then check below video,
The reason is you need to connect to PC or Mac every time you reboot your iOS device. In some case your device could end up in DFU mode if your battery dies while you are on move. Rendering it useless until you get back home and connect to PC/MAC and tethered boot. There was one solution device named as Semi-tethered jailbreak where you need to install a cydia tweak which helps you to alteast boot your device when you are not near your PC and you can atleast make calls but rest of apps will keep crashing.
Now all those who have accidentally updated to iOS 5 and waiting for untethered jailbreak on iOS 5 here is good news, Pod2G iPhone hacker has just tweeted that he has found untether exploit in iOS 5.
If you are not sure what this means then let us explain, in order to convert tethered jailbreak to untethered jailbreak one needs to have one more exploit which can inject tethered jailbreak to boot chain, so that you no longer require PC/Mac while rebooting your device.
POD2G will start working hard now onwards to get tethered jailbreak. If you are wondering about creditability of POD2G then here is it, he was responsible for Greenpois0n iOS 4.2.1 untethered jailbreak and he had also discovered SHAtter bootrom exploit which got wasted because of premature leak.
