The wait for an untethered jailbreak for the iPhone 5 and iPad mini is finally over. Team evad3rs has moments ago released the evasi0n jailbreak, which isn’t only untethered (meaning you can reboot without having to “tether” to a computer), but is compatible with all iDevices running iOS 6.0 through 6.1. iPhone 5 users can now get back to using awesome Cydia apps like SBSettings, Zephyr and Springtomizer 2, just several of the non-Apple sanctioned apps that seriously enhances the whole iOS experience. To get started, check out the evasi0n FAQ page for step-by-step instructions on how to install this Jailbreak. But before you continue – and assuming you want to run iOS 6.1 while Jailbroken – it is recommended that you update your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad via iTunes, rather than directly from your device –> settings (aka OTA).
The untethered Jailbreak solution for iOS 5.1.1 we’d posted about earlier this week has finally arrived with the public release of Absinthe 2.0.
After copious amounts of work and many sleepless nights Absinthe 2.0 is finally here to jailbreak your device. This release has been a large collaborative effort between Chronic-Dev Team and iPhone Dev Teams (Jailbreak Dream Team)
This jailbreak supports firmware 5.1.1 ONLY and is again one of the most easiest jailbreaks to use
Absinthe 2.0 is compatible with a host of recent iDevices, including the iPhone 3GS/4/4S, iPod Touch 3G/4G and iPad 1/2/3. That’s right. iPad 3 owners can finally jailbreak their device and install their favorite Cydia apps. Instructions, links and more info after the break.
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.[9to5mac]
To all the early adopters of the new iPad who are hoping to add Cydia to their retina-tablet ASAP, fret not as the Dev Team have posted some encouraging news regarding its eventual Jailbreak. This comes on the heels of the iPad 2 running iOS 5.1 being jailbroken by hacker @i0n1c, which he shared with the rest of the community via several pics he posted on his twitter account. Here’s the “good news” the Dev Team posted on their blog:
Several weeks ago, we saw chronic dev team member pod2g post a video of his untethered jailbreak on an iPod Touch running iOS 5. Well, for those of you eagerly anticipating its public release, the wait is finally over. The untethered exploit has just been incorporated into redsnow 0.9.10 and PwnageTool and works on the iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPad 1, iPod Touch 3G and iPod Touch 4G. One requirement is that they must be updated to iOS 5.0.1 beforehand. As for iPhone 4S and iPad 2 owners, they’ll have to wait some more as A5 devices haven’t been completely hacked yet. Fear not though, as pod2g has said that he’ll be looking at extending this untethered jailbreak to the latest iDevices in the near future. A quick rundown of how to install it right after the break.
It would appear that the long awaited Untethered Jailbreak for iOS 5 is one step closer to fruition. Chronic dev team member pod2g has posted on YouTube a video of a jailbroken iPod reboot without having to tether to a computer. The only jailbreak currently available is a Tethered one, meaning every time you need to reboot, you’ll have to plug in your iDevice and reboot via one of the JB tools. A pain in the neck if you’re away from your desktop/laptop. According to pod2g, this jailbreak will also work on iOS 5.0.1:
Tons of questions from my nice followers. Too early to answer. Will work on iOS 5.0.1, will try iPad 2 and 4S after others are ready.
No word on when this untethered Jailbreak will be released for the public, though it’s probably safe to assume that it won’t be too long now before jailbreakers can finally go untethered for iOS 5.[via engadget]
JailbreakMe 3.0 has finally gone live and users can once again jailbreak their iDevices without a computer – all accomplished by simply visiting JailbreakMe.com on their Safari browser. It appears that it’ll support all devices – iPhones, iPod Touches and even iPad 2 – though you must be running iOS 4.3.3. If you’re looking to set your iDevice free, it doesn’t get any easier than this. Oh, and this jailbreak is also untethered – meaning you won’t need to be near a PC/Mac after every reboot. Check out a video tutorial from a youtube user after the break.
The war is on! Thanks to the relentless efforts of the Dev-Team, along with the help of ion1c, an independent security expert, the jailbreaking tools for iOS 4.3.1 was recently released. And in our guide today I’m going to help you set free your iPhone 3GS/4, iPod Touch 3G (except 8Gb)/4G and iPad.
Please note, iPad 2 is not supported! Also, I won’t be going into the details of creating custom firmware (for those upgrading a locked phone that need to preserve the old baseband).
So, if you’re looking for a straight-up jailbreak, let’s dive in!
Everyone including the rumoured Apple spy in the Dev-Team has has played the April Fool. On April 1st, the news that an untethered jailbreak was out for all A4 devices, shook the internet. Naturally, i0n1c was having a laugh when he tweeted a link to a supposed archive containing the long sought-for JB package. The catch? A 30-symbol pass code that inquiring minds had to break.
However, there was a piece of truth to that joke as well. Confirmed by MuscleNerd, i0n1c has meanwhile turned over a true exploit in iOS 4.3.1 to the Dev-Team who have just integrated it into the existing Pwn tool set that can set your A4 Jesus device free!
