A very good news for everybody using the "Tethered" or "SemiTethered Jailbreak" as finally the wait is over and we now have a Untethered Jailbreak for iOS 5.0.1 (no need to connect your device to a computer while rebooting), dubbed Corona 5.0.1 Untether the very small 44.6 KB only cydia tweak is all you need to get the untethered jailbreak on your iOS 5 apple device. Supporting all supported A4 & lower Apple devices (iPhone 4, iPhone 4 (CDMA), iPhone 3GS, iPad 1, iPod Touch 4G & iPod Touch 3G), this userland jailbreak is courtesy of pod2g.
We all are eagerly waiting for the untethered iOS 5 jailbreak, and after the initial announcement by pod2g, some very good news is coming from his end as he confirmed tested, working untethered jailbreak on Apple iPad 1 and iPhone 3GS running iOS 5.01. This basically means that his untethered jailbreak exploit is successful and after proper testing all pod2g needs to do is to package his code and release it, users can definitely expect this as an Christmas gift soon from pod2g soon.
Apple iOS 5.1 Beta 2 finally addresses the iPhone 4S battery drain issue (Batterygate), the latest iOS Beta is currently available only for Apple developers and supports iPhone 3GS, 4, 4S, the iPads and the latest iPod Touches. Direct download links to these dev-files are posted after the jump.
Despite some good signs on untethered jailbreak for iOS 5, there is no iOS 5 untethered jailbreak as of now. But thanks to a new tweak "SemiTether" at "Cydia" users can now boot their iDevices running jailbroken iOS 5 without needing a computer.
The semi-tethered jailbreak allows users reboot anywhere but with some limited functionality, "SemiTethred" users can use their phone, text, and many other features but will mostly sacrifice the "Cydia" tweaks which require a usual "Just Boot" re-exploit using "redsn0w".
The recently uploaded video by pod2g shows an jailbroken iPod Touch 3G running iOS 5.0, with an untether exploit in iOS 5. According to pod2g the exploit found by him is an "userland exploit", meaning we could soon see an easy-to-use browser based jailbreak. pod2g will now try to jailbreak 5.0.1 and then start working on the iPhone 4, iPad 1, iPod Touch 4G, iPad 2 and iPhone 4S untethered jailbreak.
