All You Need to Know About Untethered iOS 5.1.1 Jailbreak

Scott Herder 2012/05/21 0
A prominent member of the jailbreaking scene, Musclenerd, took to twitter today announcing a short little informational sheet about the upcoming iOS 5.1.1 jailbreak using p0d2g’s exploit.

The tweet gives those interested a bit of insight to members involved, how they achieved the jailbreak and of course a link to a paypal donation for all the members involved in getting you this jailbreak. The donation is completely optional.

* All info below is tentative and subject to last minute refinements
* @pod2g's 5.1.1 jailbreak+untether is working out great.  All devices are covered except for AppleTV3,1, which currently has no path for jailbreaking.
 - the initial 5.1.1 plan used a kernel exploit from @westbaer which unfortunately precluded use in iPod3,1 and iPhone2,1
 - @planetbeing stepped up and provided a kernel exploit that covers both of those.  Those two JBers are the bomb!
* The 5.1.1 A5 JB is very similar to the A5 5.0.1 JB.  @pimskeks has done a tremendous job supporting both 5.0.1 and 5.1.1 in absinthe
* Similar to 5.0.1, there will also be a 5.1.1 CLI "cinject" binary and redsn0w version of the 5.1.1 JB+untether.  Absinthe, cinject, and redsn0w will all provide the same JB in different fashions.
 - timing is indeterminate.  Plans are for this week, but a number of factors can influence that.
* For those wishing to donate, we've set up a new 5.1.1 paypal URL:  https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=4U6DQGJ2NRVUN
* Please don't pirate AppStore apps (seriously, please do not).

The jailbreak is expected to drop any day now. Check back regularly by following us on twitter or liking our Facebook page as more details emerge.
