As most of you who own an iPad 2 and iPhone 4S are aware of the situation leading up to the A5 untethered jailbreak which has been developed by the “dream team”, they are now putting the final touches to the Corona untethered jailbreak. But before you move on to do something, this is a must read for those of you who want the untether Corona jailbreak.
The iPhone Dev team memeber, musclenerd has posted a blog note mentioning all the important things you need to know about the up-coming jailbreak which is almost ready and maybe released at any time!
Corona Untether Jailbreak
The “dream team” which consists of; pod2g, who (is separate from any team), the iPhone Dev team and the Chronic team have all equally contributed to making this untethered jailbreak for the iPhone 4S and the iPad 2.
This Corona A5 jailbreak will take multiple forms:
- Chronic Dev have incorporated the overall flow into a GUI that runs on your Mac or PC
- iPhone Dev have incorporated the exact same flow into a command-line interface (CLI). This will allow us to help users through individual steps of the jailbreak manually, to both help the user and help improve the overall flow. Although the CLI will also allow the user to perform the entire jailbreak from beginning to end, we anticipate it will be more useful in debugging the occasional errors. The CLI currently has over 20 individual options (in addition to the single “jailbreak” option) that should be useful during debug after the GUI release.
- Once all the bugs in the flow are worked out, we’ll also incorporate it into the redsn0w GUI (but still leave the CLI freely available too). In order to maximize the chances of the jailbreak working for everyone, the redsn0w GUI will use native Apple iTunes libraries — this technique is slightly different than how the Chronic Dev GUI handles communications, and should provide nice combined coverage for all the odd computer configurations out there.
iPhone 4S Unlock
Those folks who want an unlock for their iPhone 4S should not update to iOS 5.0.1 which we have previously mentioned. If you do not want to unlock for iPhone 4S on baseband 1.0.11 then you do not need to stay on iOS 5, simply head over to iOS 5.0.1. For more information regarding the unlock for iPhone 4S, head over to this link.
Versions Supported For Jailbreak
The Corona untether jailbreak will support the following versions
- iPhone4S: 5.0 (9A334), 5.0.1 (9A405) and the “other” 5.0.1 (9A406)
- iPad2: 5.0.1 (9A405)
The untethered jailbreak for iPhone 4S and iPad 2 is almost ready and we are expecting it to be released either tomorrow or day after tomorrow. As musclenerd mentioned
Corona A5 jailbreak nearly ready to pop
Currently the dev teams are putting final touches to the Corona untethered jailbreak and want to release a stable version which would be bug-free but as they have mentioned that this is a complete new jailbreak, they are expecting bugs to be present. So before you jailbreak your iOS device remember to back up everything.
