It has been finally done folks. iPhone 4 running on iOS 5.1 has been jailbroken untethered by one of the main hackers in the jailbreaking community, pod2g.
Pod2g via his Twitter account tweeted mentioning something we all had been waiting for. The news regarding the untethered jailbreak for the A4 device, Apple’s iPhone 4.
Heya! My iPhone 4 running iOS 5.1 is now untethered
After months of waiting for an untethered jailbreak for the latest firmware, that is iOS 5.1. We can now confirm that iPhone 4 has indeed been jailbroken on the latest firmware by pod2g.
Although the exploit that has been used for the untether jailbreak for iPhone 4 has been developed by pod2g, we can expect that the final touch will be from iPhone dev team leader musclenerd, who will release the untethered jailbreak for iPhone 4 in a redsnow update.
Now the question on most of those users who are waiting for the jailbreak would be; when is the jailbreak tool (redsnow) going to be released to untethered jailbreak iPhone 4 on iOS 5.1. Although we have not been given an exact date for the jailbreak but I can say that it will released within a week or so.
Redsnow could already jailbreak iPhone 4 on iOS 5.1 but it wasn’t untethered, until today. Although it’s great to see iPhone 4 getting untether jailbroken on iOS 5.1, many of you would be waiting for a jailbreak for iPhone 4S and the new iPad 3/2. The last time we got information on it was that there is still lots of work to do and it may take more then a month.
