Jailbreak for iPad 2 and iPhone 4S imminent
January 13, 2012
If you've been patiently waiting for a jailbreak solution for your A5-based device--in other words, your iPhone 4S or iPad 2--it should be exciting news that the jailbreak community has gotten its current program out of the sandbox stage, which generally signals an imminent release.
According to a tweet picked up by iDownloadBlog, hacker "planetbeing" has announced that the iPhone 4S/iPad 2 jailbreak has left the sandbox stage of development. He also states that the jailbreak is "turning out to be more complex than X-Gold 618."
X-Gold 618 was the baseband chip in the iPhone 4 that was cracked by planetbeing and "MuscleNerd."
The complicated nature of this particular jailbreak is not a surprise considering Apple blocked one of the popular methods of jailbreaking with the release of the iOS 5 update.
