iPhone 4S Jailbreak Almost Ready For Prime Time

    January 16, 2012

We have previously reported that a jailbreak solution for Apple’s iPhone 4S and iPad 2 was on its way soon. Noted jailbreak developer pod2g posted last week that an untethered jailbreak of iOS devices running on Apple’s A5 processor (the iPhone 4S and iPad 2) would be ready in “a matter of days.”

Though it seems that those days aren’t quite up yet, there shouldn’t be many of them left. A video posted on pod2g’s blog this morning shows an iPhone 4S running an untethered jailbreak. Along with the video pod2g promises “only a few to wait now.”

An untethered jailbreak – i.e., one that does not require the phone to be re-jailbroken every time the phone reboots – has proven elusive on A5 devices. Owners of these devices who have been anxiously awaiting a jailbreak should really have no more than a couple of days to wait now. Check out the video below, and let us know what you think in the comments.
