When a hacker releases his jailbreak tool, he gets lots of questions regarding the new jailbreak. And now, it seems same thing is happening with pod2g who has released untethered jailbreak for A4 devices.
The new untethered jailbreak has been developed to support the old iDevices, which means iPhone 4S and iPad 2 users can’t use this tool on their gadgets. The hacker, however, had claimed that he has an untether exploit for A5 devices as well, but didn’t provide it to iPhone Dev Team and Chronic Dev Team members. Now, the users who were waiting for untethered jailbreak on such devices are not really happy with the move.
While responding to their doubts and questions, pod2g has clarified some of the important aspects of his exploit -
How could pod2g have an untethered 4S and dev teams still haven’t released tools to achieve this at home?
The exploit I used to inject the untethering files to the 4S relies on having a developer account, and can’t be released publicly.
It’s the same reason why @MuscleNerd has an iPad 2 tethered jailbreak but couldn’t distribute it.So, we need to find a distributable exploit to remount the system partition read/write and to set Corona files at the correct places.
Why A4 version of Corona was easier to release?
Because a tethered jailbreak is a good way to install Corona!
Why don’t you do a tethered jailbreak then?A tethered jailbreak also relies on an exploitable vulnerability that we still haven’t found yet!
So, that’s the reason why they are still not coming up with untethered solution for new devices. Once they find the legitimate way to inject untether exploit to A5 devices, we will let you know about it.
