iOS 5.1 jailbreak getting Pod2g best workout
It has been best part of a week now since Apple made available the latest version of their mobile operating system. As with any new software release there are often some small issues that can affect users, and for the time being we are hearing conflicting reports about the software improving battery life. We have told you previously users that like to jailbreak their devices are being advised not to upgrade to the iOS 5.1 operating system, but today we have the news that Pod2g is currently giving the software its best workout.
Users may have missed the early warnings about upgrading to iOS 5.1, and will now be stuck with a device that can’t be returned to older versions of the operating system, but according to iDownload Blog hackers are busy at work trying to jailbreak the new software.
The iOS 5.1 update that was released last week blocked the exploits that are used in the Absinthe and Corona jailbreak tools.
All is not lost though as Pod2g who was largely responsible for those jailbreaks has taken to Twitter and revealed he is “actively” working on a solution to break the new software. Finding vulnerabilities is the first step in the long process for providing an iOS jailbreak.
Unfortunately there is no information at present how long we will have to wait before an iOS 5.1 jailbreak will be available, but at least we know that the work is already underway. In the meantime owners that haven’t updated their devices yet will have to sit tight and continue to use the version they are still running.
Have you updated your device to iOS 5.1 yet?
