Everyone in the iOS community is eagerly anticipating the release of an untethered jailbreak of A5 devices(iPhone 4S & iPad 2) by Pod2g. Pod2g has been working on it for weeks but apparently, this one is a hard nut to crack. However, with this latest development, it may be possible. In the latest post on his blog, Pod2g has said that some of the best iOS hackers in the world, including Planetbeing, MuscleNerd and P0sixninja are joining him in helping find an untethered jailbreak for A5 devices.
Together with his new team members, which Pod2g has stated on his blog, Pod2g has a very strong team of best iOS hackers and the iOS community is hoping that they will be able to crack the A5 riddle soon. MuscleNerd, who is now part of the team leads the iPhone Dev Team. He has expertise in baseband hacks and has been central in creating the RedSn0w and UltraSn0w tools, which are most widely used for jailbreaking. The second addition is that of Chronic Dev Team leader Joshua Hill, who has been into iPhone security research since many years. Finally, Planetbeing is also part of the team. Planetbeing is considered one of the best iOS hackers by the iOS community. And his addition, in particular, has raised hopes of iPhone 4S and iPad 2 users.
An A5 untethered jailbreak will necessarily mean that users of iPhone 4S and iPad 2 can perform untethered jailbreak on their devices. This is because both of these devices make use of A5 chips. While Pod2g was successful in cracking the A4 chips for an untethered jailbreak, thus bringing good news for iPhone 4 and iPad users, he had little success with A5 devices so far. We hope that with this ideal team, we will soon be hearing some good new about an A5 untethered jailbreak.
