This good news comes directly from pod2g’s official blog; no need to say about pod2g, a well known iPhone hacker and developer famous for his exploitspod2g. On the blog he disclosed that he has tested his untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.0.1 on almost all iOS devices except iPhone 4 CDMA iPhone 4S and iPad 2.

Pod2G’s Official Blog notes:

IPhone 3Gs 5.0.1 jb worked.

Remaining to test: iPod 4G & iPhone 4 CDMA running 5.0.1.

Also, I’ve tested iPad 1 and it worked.

Now the time to finalize the jailbreak for old devices, fix some stability issues and package the whole.That will take some days.

In the meanwhile, I’m starting the research for iPad 2 and 4S. I’ll take you informed of my progress.

On the basis of all posts,tweets and expert opinions, the current state of iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak on various iOS devices is:

  • iPod touch 3G on iOS 5.0.1

pod2g’s untethered jailbreak for iOS 5/5.0.1 might be based on either a user-land or a kernel based exploit. Notably, all these exploits are software-based, and Apple can patch the exploit by releasing an update to iOS, once the company’s engineers discover it accordingly.
