pod2g is a well-known developer that was responsible for coming up with the actual code to jailbreak the iOS 5.0.1 on all Apple A4 devices namely iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPod Touch, iPad. About a week ago iPhone Dev-Team released the updated Redsn0w tool that was able to get untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.0.1 on the above mentioned iOS devices because of his efforts. Now the same guy has shared a great news through his Tweeter account that he has made some progress on Apple A5 and all iDevice users can expect a release in week or so if every thing goes well! Its not mentioned in which way this exploit will be released. Although we assume that most likely it will come in the form of yet another update for the Redsn0w. In other words, we can expect an updated Redsn0w to get untethered jailbreak on our shiny new iPhone 4S as well as iPad 2 which was so far only available for older Apple A4 based devices such as iPhone 4/3GS.
Later on Pod2g has also tweeted some updated guideline for the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 users essentially giving green signal for them to update to the iOS 5.0.1! This will be a sigh of relief for many iPhone 4S and iPad 2 users out there I am sure. So go ahead with the update and wait patiently for the untethered jailbreak iOS 5.0.1 for iPhone 4S and iPad 2 which might land as soon as next week if the information posted by pod2g is to be believed.
You can be rest assured that we will be update you as soon as we get hang of any more valuable information regarding the iOS 5.0.1 jailbreak on Apple A5 based devices.
