For those of you who’re eagerly awaiting the 5.1.1 untethered Jailbreak (especially all the new iPad owners out there), Dev Team member pod2g tweeted some great news yesterday. It appears that an untethered jailbreak is on the verge of being released, likely before the week’s over.
From pod2g’s blog, we know that most recent iDevices will be supported, including the iPad 3 (Wifi/CDMA), though the AppleTV 3 seems to be out of luck (the iPad 3 Global model hasn’t been tested yet, but it should work). And according to iDB, the soon to be released 5.1.1 jailbreak is likely to be called Absinthe 2.0. If so, it will be the successor to the original that became the first tool to successfully jailbreak (untethered) the A5 based iPhone 4S and iPad 2. Pretty soon, the jailbreak community will finally be able to install their favorite Cydia apps on their iPad 3. Good news indeed.
