“Chronic Dev Team hacker Pod2G, who reported last week of being able to get an untethered jailbreak running on an iPhone 4, has updated his progress with further news,” MacNN reports.
“He has gotten the jailbreak exploit to work on most other iOS devices capable of running iOS 5.1, regardless of processor type,” MacNN reports. “The breakthrough, which may not apply to the latest iOS 5.1.1 update, could mean a public tool for untethered jailbreaks will arrive soon.””
MacNN reports, “The jailbreak technique is not yet available for public use, as Pod2g reports that it needs stabilizing and packaging, but the news gives hope to iPhone 4S and third-gen iPad users who had been looking for a jailbreak method in order to use some customizing and non-App Store apps. He reports that the third-generation Apple TV device hasn’t been tested yet and may not work with the hack. He also plans on testing the exploit with iOS 5.1.1.”
