Untethered Jailbreak for iPad 3 iOS 5.1 and 5.1.1 Demoed by Pod2G
Previously we had reported about three different jailbreaks achieved for iPad 3 aka The New iPad on its launch day. However the two jailbreaks were achieved using iOS dev account which makes it unusable as dev teams cannot distribute it as jailbreak tool as it contains Apple’s proprietary code. The only pod2G’s jailbreak is promising and uses six different vulnerabilities to achieve jailbreak on iPad 3.
Getting working jailbreak for public release is more difficult than finding vulnerability and that’s what creating delay in jailbreak release, also since iOS 6.0 announcement is around the corner, it is wise to safe jailbreak for next major iOS release but it seems most are in favor of releasing jailbreak instead waiting for next iOS release.
After months of work finally today Pod2g has released first video of iPad 3 jailbreak using his own methods and vulnerabilities. Here is video after the break,
Pod2g has confirmed that his jailbreak will also work on recently released iOS 5.1..1 and will work on iPhone 4S, iPad 2 and all the older devices.
OK, tested on an iPad 3,1 running 5.1.1. Jailbroken untethered. :-) No issue.

Unfortunately there is no ETA available at the moment, but pod2g has assured that iOS 5.1/5.1.1 jailbreak tool will be released in few weeks.
