After a long long wait finally Pod2g, and Chronic Dev Team releases untethered Jailbreak for iPhone 4S and iPad 2 running iOS 5.0 or iOS 5.0.1. The tool used by Chronic dev team to Jailbreak iPhone 4S and iPad 2 is known as Greenpois0n: absinthe. iPhone Dev Team used Redsn0w with Command line interface Jailbreak tool which will be releases soon as well..
The Jailbreak tool developed by iPhone dev team and Chronic dev team uses different steps in order to Jailbreak the A5 iPhone 4S and iPad 2.
Here is what iPhone Dev Team says:
- Chronic Dev have incorporated the overall flow into a GUI that runs on your Mac or PC. The goal is for the GUI to be enough for most cases.
- iPhone Dev have also incorporated the exact same flow into an alternative command-line interface (CLI). This will allow us to help users through individual steps of the jailbreak manually, to both help the user and help improve the overall flow. Although the CLI will also allow the user to perform the entire jailbreak from beginning to end, we anticipate it will be more useful in debugging the occasional errors. The CLI currently has over 20 individual options (in addition to the single “jailbreak” option) that should be useful during debug after the GUI release.
- Once all the bugs in the flow are worked out, we’ll also incorporate it into the redsn0w GUI (but still leave the CLI freely available too). In order to maximize the chances of the jailbreak working for everyone, the redsn0w GUI will use native Apple iTunes libraries — this technique is slightly different than how the Chronic Dev GUI handles communications, and should provide nice combined coverage for all the odd computer configurations out there.
The supported firmware versions will be:
- iPhone4S: 5.0 (9A334), 5.0.1 (9A405) and the “other” 5.0.1 (9A406)
- iPad2: 5.0.1 (9A405)
iPhone 4S users who wants to unlock their iPhone using Ultrasn0w should stay on iOS 5.0.
