Pod2g Reveals More Details About Untethered Jailbreak for iPhone 4S and iPad 2


After months of waiting for an iPhone 4S and iPad 2 untethered jailbreak, we have some unfortunate news from Pod2g. Despite the report that an untethered jailbreak for the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 was only a week away from public release, pod2g indicates the exploit could still be weeks away.

Pod2g has revealed that his new exploit requires a developer account to inject the necessary files to your device, and until he finds a way around this, the hack will not see a public release.


The exploit I used to inject the untethering files to the 4S relies on having a developer account, and can’t be released publicly.

It’s the same reason why @MuscleNerd has an iPad 2 tethered jailbreak but couldn’t distribute it.
So, we need to find a distributable exploit to remount the system partition read/write and to set Corona files at the correct places.
Here are some more FAQ’s that pod2g answered on his blog post:
Why A4 version of Corona was easier to release ?

Because a tethered jailbreak is a good way to install Corona!

Why don’t you do a tethered jailbreak then ?

A tethered jailbreak also relies on an exploitable vulnerability that we still haven’t found yet !

pod2g, release this stuff quick, [your insult here], I’ve waited enough now.

If I could, I would !
Let’s hope we get that jailbreak soon!
