Pod2g has announced via Twitter that he successfully made untethered jailbreak of the iPhone 4 on iOS 5.1. Previously, three parties had demonstrated the jailbreak of iOS 5.1: I0n1c, the iPhone Dev-Team, and Chpwn/Phoenixdev. Only I0n1c claimed untethered jailbreak, but made it clear that he will not be releasing his jailbreak to the public.

Thankfully pod2g has announced that he's also succeeded in untethering the jailbreak.

ipod3g-windows-custom-sn0wbreeze-51

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.

When will we see untethered iOS 5.1 jailbreak



Now we have some estimations regarding the release of the iOS 5.1 untethered jailbreak. Pod2g noted that it is at least a month away.

ETA for 5.1 JB: no clue! We're going to set pieces of the puzzle together this week. We could have issues... Could be 1 month maybe 2...

I know 1 month seems long, but it's short to work on a project like this when it's a hobby and you've other things to do as well.

Last week, pod2g reported that the Chronic Dev-Team has all the exploits required to release an untethered jailbreak of iOS 5.1 for all devices, including iPad 3, iPad 2 and iPhone 4S. However it would take some time to put it together into a useable release.

New Unlock works for all iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, all 5.x firmwares, all basebands



unlock1 unlock1

A new unlock has been discovered that works for all iPhones and all 5.x firmware versions, all basebands are supported.

The method discovered by Loktar_Sun appears to exploit a logical bug in Apple's server and can be performed on any jailbroken iOS device. His procedure involves using Sam Bingner's SAM (Subscriber Artificial Module) package to perform a series of steps that unlocks your phone to use a specific SIM.

It has been confirmed working by iPhone Dev-Team member MuscleNerd who notes an update may be coming to SAM from @sbingner to make the procedure simpler.

We will post detailed step by step unlock instructions soon.

UPDATE: Tutorial is ready! You can find it here.

One more step towards untethered iOS 5.1 jailbreak



aslr

Pod2g has bypassed ASLR at bootup, making progress towards the public release of an iOS 5.1 jailbreak. ASLR is a security method that randomly arranges important data areas. This is one more step toward untethered iOS 5.1 jailbreak for all devices including iPhone 4S, iPad 2 and new iPad 3.

ASLR seems bypassed! Weird machines FTW. Time to ROP the payload.

Earlier this week pod2g revealed that the Chronic Dev-Team now has all the exploits required to release a userland jailbreak of iOS 5.1. It takes time to put them together in a public ready tool.

Pod2g now has all exploits to release iOS 5.1 jailbreak



51jail

Famous hacker pod2g has announced that the Chronic Dev-Team now has all the exploits required to release a userland jailbreak for iOS 5.1.

News: we have all exploits required to do a new jailbreak. I'm working on bypassing ASLR at bootup.

Last month Pod2g said that the team only had a few pieces of a userland jailbreak. Now that the team has them all, it will still take some time to put them together in a public ready tool.

Since this is a userland jailbreak, it will be the first publicly available jailbreak of the iPad 3. I0n1c has demonstrated a jailbreak of the new device, however, he's said he will not release his jailbreak to the public.

Apple Testing A5X Variant in Next-Generation iPhone Prototype



features_hero

Apple is reportedly testing a prototype of next-generation iPhone hidden under the iPhone 4 casing. The next iPhone is said to not include the iPhone 4/4s form factor, and Apple is testing the prototype in older casing in order to throw off leaks. The prototype iPhone is used to test a variation of A5X processor in an iPhone. The A5X system-on-a-chip in the iPad 3 was specifically designed to run the new Retina Display, so that adding this chip in the next iPhone wouldn’t make much sense.

Step-by-step Tutorial: How to (Un)Tether Jailbreak and Unlock iPhone 3GS Using Sn0wBreeze 2.9.3 (Windows) [iOS 5.1]



iphone-3gs-windows-custom-sn0wbreeze-51

UPDATE: Apple released iOS 5.1.1 and has stopped signing iOS 5.1, so you can NOT restore to 5.1 any more (both original and custom), unless you have saved your SHSH keys for 5.0.1. If you are on 5.1 you can jailbreak with redsn0w. iOS is also tethered jailbreakable with redsn0w.

Using this tutorial you will be able to create a custom firmware, tether jailbreak and unlock iOS 5.1 running on iPhone 3GS. This tutorial uses Sn0wBreeze 2.9.3 for Windows.

If you have iPhone 3GS with an old bootrom version 359.3, the jailbreak is untethered. If your device has bootrom version 359.3.2 and higher, jailbreak will be tethered. You can detect your bootrom version using this tutorial.

Tethered jailbreak means that each time you restart your device you will need to connect it to a computer and run iBooty.

Sn0wBreeze will also preserve baseband version if you need carrier unlock. It can also update your modem version to 06.15 if you need unlock and stuck with 05.14 or higher baseband. If you have new iPhone 3GS that was made after 28 week of 2011 upgrading modem will not help to unlock.

Boot Time: iPad 1 vs iPad 2 vs iPad 3



iClarified performed several boot time tests for iPad 1, iPad 2 and iPad 3 on the latest iOS 5.1.

The video is synced on the down click of the power button. Take a look at the results:

Surprisingly, the boot time has got slightly slower over each generation. Not a big deal though, since users don't reboot iPad that much anyway.
