The iPhone Dev Team developers did not stay away from this event and rushed to tell potential buyers about our prediction for Jailbreak iPad 3 running on iOS 5.1 firmware.
According to the iPhone Dev Team hackers, the chances that an new Jailbreak iOS 5.1 exploit will appear in the near future are very high:
There are three aspects to Jailbreak new iPad 3 on iOS 5.1. We don't even have included the development of @ pod2g. Of course, this is only a preliminary procedure, everything will become clear when the device is in our hands.
- Now we can confirm that the method used to jailbreak the iPad 2 - 4 months ago (before corona) still works even in 5.1. That means we’ll at least be able to get our foot in the door to get the required kernel dumps on the iPad 3. That’s an important step, but by no means is it the end of the story.
- Those of you following @i0n1c may have noticed he’s already tweeted pictures of his iPad2 jailbroken at 5.1. As far as we know, he’s using a method completely unrelated to the one mentioned above. That would be great news!
- We’ve also seen bits and pieces of an entirely different jailbreak method being investigated by someone close to the Cydia repo scene.
Right now to Jailbreak iOS 5.1 you need to download a new Redsn0w version for Windows and Mac, or use Sn0wbreeze on Windows. Keep in mind that at this stage Jailbreak iOS 5.1 is tethered. In other words, if your device is discharged or reboot you'll need to connect it to your computer for transfer to jailbreak mode.
To make Untethered Jailbreak iOS 5.0.1 / iOS 5.0 application, use Redsn0w the instructions here. For users of iPhone 4S or iPad 2 on iOS 5.0.1 you can use the suitable tool Absinthe.
For those who expect unlock solution is recommended to stay on the lower firmware. That goes for all those who rely on hardware or Ultrasn0w unlock solution and stay tuned to UnlockBoot.
