Now that iPhone 4S is has been released by Apple which also means that iOS 5 will also be released by Apple this week. This gives the jailbreak community another motivation to work and find untethered jailbreak solutions for the new iOS 5 based devices namely iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad 1/2 and so on. As you might know that a jailbreak solution for the iOS 5 has been available for quite some time since Apple announced and released the developer preview additions of the iOS 5. So a tethered jailbreak for the final release of the iOS 5 is not a problem at all. However, most of the users of the iOS devices are interested in an untethered solution because it do not mandates the tethering to a PC when the device is restarted.
Now there is some good news from the well known security expert named Stefan Esser (@i0n1c) that a number of exploits have been found by the many groups working on the jailbreak solutions for the iOS 5! Namely there are at least three different groups that have found exploits that will lead to untethered jailbreak for the iOS 5. Its also expected that this time users will be able to get this untethered jailbreak across the board for the Apple devices such as iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad 1/2. So they will not have to wait longer. These solutions should start to appear in a couple of weeks most probably in the form of already well known tools such as RedSn0w, Sn0wbreeze and so on.
You may remember that iPad 2 users had to wait a long time to get their hands on a jailbreak solution. We hope that it will not be the case this time around with iOS 5. Lets keep our fingers crossed!
