Covering iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak info sheet
Although we can’t recommend that our readers use jailbreaking technques on their devices, we also know just how many of you can’t wait for the iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak to arrive. We’ve been bringing you developments almost daily on the efforts of pod2g and others to bring the jailbreak to release and we know it is now imminent. With that in mind we wanted to bring you the latest news of an info sheet that has been issued that covers the iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak.
Yesterday we gave readers some details on how to get prepped for the arrival of the untethered jailbreak and things you might want to consider before its arrival. The latest info has come from famed iOS hacker MuscleNerd who also reinforces that the release of the iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak should come before the week is over, although points out that other factors could influence that. He also reminds everyone who may use the jailbreak not to pirate AppStore apps.
News of the info sheet comes to us from iDownload Blog and we’ll run through some of the main points although MuscleNerd points out the details are subject to change following refinements. Firstly we learn that all devices are covered with the exception of Apple TV 3,1 as we already learned with the previous list of covered devices. Also a kernel exploit has been provided by @planetbeing to cover the iPod 3,1 and iPhone 2,1.
MuscleNerd also points out that the 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak for A5 devices is very similar to that for the iOS 5.0.1 jailbreak for A5’s and @pimskeks comes in for some praise for Absinthe support for both. We also learn that multiple tools will support the 5.1.1 jailbreak in different ways such as redsn0w, Absinthe and cinject and a new Paypal account is available for those grateful recipients of the jailbreak who may wish to contribute.
Pod2g’s blog also reiterates this same information and we’ll be keeping our noses to the ground sniffing out the latest information as it appears. Are you waiting for the iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak? What for you, are the main benefits of jailbreaking your device and what do you think of the ingenious work of the developers and hackers that bring these jailbreaks to a general release? Let us have your comments on this.
