Jailbreaj 5.1 news: pod2g found 2 big vulnerabilities



jail51-news

Pod2g has announced the discovery of 2 new vulnerabilities in his quest to jailbreak the iPhone.

News: a productive week-end. Found 2 big vulnerabilities. 1 kernel land and 1 root land.

Too bad I have to be secret again...

Last week pod2g noted that a jailbreak of iOS 5.1 would take at least a month to complete. We'll post more information about how these new vulnerabilities will affect that schedule as soon as we hear more.

If the kernel land vulnerability is exploitable this could provide a jailbreak for the device no matter the firmware.
