An Extraordinary hacker pod2g, who as recently confirmed the untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.1.1, now has plans to release this untethered jailbreak to public soon. And if you don’t know this jailbreak will be working for “All” Apple iDevices.
Well this is great news that pod2g has finally managed to work this jailbreak off on all the Apple iOS devices to this date. Not all Apple TV 3rd-Generation user will have to wait some time more.
Pod2g in his blog entry confirmed this yesterday,
“As I said earlier in twitter, there’s still a lot to do to have a user friendly and well tested tool to install the jailbreak on end users devices. Expect a release in a couple of weeks,”
Explaining the reason behind this much delay pod2g said that there are 16 different Apple devices, to work on and and test properly. This new jailbreak will be compatible with all Apple iPhone models, iPad models and iPod Touch players, more than this all iOS versions up to 5.1.1 and maybe (perhaps) beyond, all depends upon if Apple doesn’t patch-up the vulnerabilities in the interim.
Reading FAQ on Pod2g’s Blog,
“It will be compatible with any device running iOS 5.1.1 except ATV3 (right now, may change in a near future, nobody knows),”
Lot of users are asking about about if they have any chance to become the beta tester for this untethered jailbreak, pod2g replied to this question, that there is no chance for anyone, pointing out the simple reason of “Security”.
In Pod2g’s own words,
“…sorry [...] Only really trusted people (that can be counted on one hand) could have access to the jailbreak. I don’t want any leak to happen.”
He reinforced his earlier stance on refusing even a million dollars for access.
Q: What if I offer you 1,000,000$?
A: That doesn’t change a thing.
The hacker concludes his post telling fans “Be patient, it’s gonna happen.”
