French hacker pod2g released a video showing off the Untethered jailbreak solution for iOS 5 and 5.0.1. , which appears to be almost complete and ready for prime time.
The highly sought after Untethered jailbreak does not require that the device be connected to a computer each time it needs to be booted. The hacker tweeted:
🙂 iOS 5.0 untethered jailbreak demo : http://youtu.be/kp_Mz6rs9fcAnd whether the new jailbreak will work on iOS 5.0.1, he tweeted
First indication of a possible untethered iOS jailbreak came in pod2g’s tweet last month:
Tons of questions from my nice followers. Too early to answer. Will work on iOS 5.0.1, will try iPad 2 and 4S after others are ready.
Hey jailbreaking friends, I’ve found a bug that can untether iOS 5. Don’t expect a release soon, but I’m gonna work hard in it.
