We have been waiting anxiously for an untethered jailbreak to hit the web. The process takes time but thankfully pod2g, the famous iPhone hacker, has kept us in the loop with frequent twitter updates on his progress. Here’s what we know so far:

“As I said earlier in twitter, there’s still a lot to do to have a user friendly and well tested tool to install the jailbreak on end users devices. Expect a release in a couple of weeks.”
May 15, 2012
It looks like the iPhone 3Gs, iPod (3rd Gen) and newest model of the Apple TV will not be supported with the untethered jailbreak. Seven devices remain to be tested, including all iPads that are cellular enabled.

A video, uploaded by Xvolks to YouTube, shows an untethered jailbreak performed with an updated Absinthe tool, likely to be named Absinthe 2.0. The jailbreak was applied using an iPhone 4 running iOS 5.1.1. (Update: The video seems to have been placed on private. A copy of the demo has been uploaded here.)

Hi guys, I thought this would be a useful post…
The home screen on iOS has always been the center…
Do you want to invest your money but are afraid…
hey great job keep up the goodwork and please try and hurry so i can jailbreak my ipad 2
Eagerly awaiting 4S 5.1.1 update
when i try to download the new jailbreak it want ps me to do the survey but then the survey doesnt let me download it once i finish so how do i download the jailbreak?
Jailbreaks are never offered with surveys attached to them. The untethered jailbreak isn’t out yet. Stay away from sketchy sites that try to charge you or ask you to complete surveys in return for the jailbreak.
Hey i have been following on your updates so just to make this clear is there an ETA of when the 5.1.1 jailbreak will be released for ipad 2 and iphone 4S thanks
An exact ETA? No ones knows for sure. The developers behind the jailbreak only say that it should be out in a few days, that’s as specific as they’ve got.
alright keep up the good work
So there is no jailbreak for ipad 2 and iphone 4s on 5.1?
That is correct. The only jailbreak available for iOS 5.1 is a tethered jailbreak and only works on A4 devices (not iPad 2, 3 or iPhone 4s). A lot of people seem to believe the untethered jailbreak will be released on Friday.
for 5.1.1 right?
Hey is it true that the jailbreak wint work because like the servers are full i dont want to take the risk do u think its okay to jailbreak it now?
Yes there should be no issues.
On behalf of the apple cotmmniuy, I would like to show my gratitude for all the hard work that you have done and accomplished. Thank you very much pod2g. It’s very nice to know that you spend hours upon hours to create a tool for everyone to use. You sir are a genius and should be put on a very high pedestal. Most people would have found the exploits and kept them for themselves. It’s a shame that some people are so vain as to complain because they have to wait to jailbreak there phones, iPads and iPod touches. And for all the complainers out there. U guys should keep your ignorant comments to yourselves. We have already lost one hard working guy thanks to rude comments. When they are ready to release it they will. Ionic is already fed up from it and won’t release his. Praise pod2g for his work and not because he is taking his time to make sure that your apple products work properly. No one is paying him for his time. He does it because he wants to.
