The jailbreak community has been waiting a long time for developers to crack iOS 5 on the iPhone 4S and iPad 2. While an untethered jailbreak has been avialable for awhile now on older devices, the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 have proven tough nuts to crack. Both devices run on Apple’s A5 processor, which has presented jailbreak developers like pod2g with considerable trouble.
Now it seems those waiting to jailbreak their A5 iOS device may be nearly done waiting. On his blog today pod2g announced that, with the help of a few other notable names in the jailbreak community, the final hurdle to an untethered jailbreak had been cleared. Though he refrained from offering a precise date, he said that “it should be a matter of days” before the jailbreak is ready.
This will certainly be welcome news to would-be jailbreakers. We will let you know when the jailbreak becomes available.
