When Apple updated their iOS operating system to 5.1, users within the jailbreak community were left behind. However, iOS hacker Pod2g has revealed of a new possibility for jail-breaking iOS 5.1, and its official released seems to be within a month or two. His team from “Chronic Dev Team” discovered two vulnerabilities that, according to his message via twitter, allowed him to install an untethered jailbreak on iOS 5.1 on his iPhone 4.
For those who are not in the know about the jailbreaking community, Pod2g and his team were involved in the Corona (centered for those older devices carrying A4 chips) and Absinth (which followed for those users of the dual-core processors found in the iPad 2 and iPhone 4S devices) projects.
Unfortunately, it looks like more work is needed before the untethered iOS 5.1 jailbreak gets a full release to the masses.
Be sure to check with us here at Appletell, as we will keep relaying news and updates about the process of the untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.1 devices.
