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.

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.
Taiwan's DigiTimes cited sources in Apple's supply chain on Friday claiming that Apple could make use of thinner in-cell touch panels from Sharp and Toshiba Mobile Display for its next-generation iPhone. Production of the panels is expected to ramp up in the second quarter of this year.
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.

Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster has recently announced his estimates of Apple sales for the first calendar quarter of the year 2012 ahead of the earnings call set for March 24.

He also suggests Apple will report on 4.3 million Macs sold in the three-month span from January to March.
