During the period of the last jailbreak’s development, there was a division in the iOS jailbreak over regardless of whether Pod2g should to produce jailbreak for iOS 5.1 firmware or — iOS 6 Jailbreak.

Today we are happy with our jailbroken devices on newest Apple iOS 5.1.1 firmware and A5 / A5X devices, thanks to Chronic Dev Team and Pod2g’s exploits.

Chronic Dev Team — developers of the Absinthe V2.0 jailbreaking software, today has reported about their big success in the jailbreak world, more than 1 million devices are running Cydia thanks to the Absinthe 2.0 Jailbreak tool. According to a short article from the Dev Team, below is posted the amount of iOS 5.1.1 jailbroken devices:

Here’s a quick breakdown of how many A5 owners have jailbroken their devices since Friday morning. The numbers as of Monday afternoon are:

  • 491,325 new iPhone4,1 devices
  • 308,967 new iPad2 devices
  • 152,940 previously jailbroken (at 4.x) iPad2 devices

Total: 953,232 new A5 jailbreaks in a little over 3 days
The reason these numbers can be so precise is that one of the housekeeping activities that happens when you launch Cydia is a query to @saurik’s server for the list of available SHSH blobs. (Even if you have none on file, the query is still made).

That impression is something that’s been shown by the official Cydia repositories — BigBoss repo manager claiming that their repo was transferring more than 1 Gbit of data per second throughout ten hosts since the release of Absinthe 2.0.

I am very happy to help you guys contribute to that big number, so thank you for following UnlockBoot!
