Chronic Dev Team Working On iOS 5 Untethered Jailbreak

Chronic developer team actively working on untethered jailbreak for iOS 5 and you can tethered jailbreak the beta versions of iOS 5, but the dev teams have been holding back any untethered jailbreaks so as not to reveal their secrets to Apple and have them closed off in the final version. In a tethered jailbreak, you need to connect your iOS device to the computer on every reboot, which is not very convenient and it will be also interesting to see if Apple fixes the exploit that allows the tethered jailbreak in the next beta version of iOS 5………………

 

Apple is getting ready to release iOS 5, the next version of its mobile operating system and it now seems that there is at least one team which is actively working on an untethered jailbreak for iOS 5. This revelation was made in a tweet by @pod2g, one of the members of the iOS hacking group Chronic-Dev Team, authors of tools such as GreenPois0n, confirming that the team was alive and well and working on breaking into iOS 5. As you might recall, current versions of iOS 5, dating all the way back to Beta 1, could only be jailbroken using the so-called tethered  methods, such as Redsn0w or Sn0wbreeze. Tethered jailbreaks are similar to untethered ones as far as features go, except for a big difference: tethered jailbreaks require the jailbroken device to be plugged into a computer running Rednsn0w every time it’s powered on or rebooted, in order to launch iOS into a jailbroken state. While this process takes just a few minutes, it can be rather inconvenient, especially for users who are often on the road. If you’re hoping for an untethered jailbreak for the current version of iOS 5, you might be out of luck, since the developer has made it clear that it wouldn’t publish exploits for pre-release versions of the system. This makes sense, since an early release would only cause Apple to patch the exploit in the final version and an untethered jailbreak method once the final version of iOS 5 is released to the public, which could anytime between later this month to early next month. iOS 5 is the next generation of Apple’s operating system that runs on the iPod touch, iPhone and iPad and iOS 5 contains many new features, such as a revamped notification system known as Notification Center and system-wide Twitter integration.
