iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak download imminent – Video evidence

Last month we informed you that there was an untethered jailbreak alternative available via a semi tether download for iOS 5, but now we have some much better news for you indeed. It has been confirmed that an untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.0.1 is now possible, and we have a video to show you giving evidence of this.

You’ll be pleased to know that one member of the Chronic Dev Team is responsible for this, and it is specifically Pod2g that you should thank for the discovery. He hasn’t made the untethered iOS 5.0.1 jailbreak available to download publicly yet, but he has provided a video showing that it does actually work.

He has also informed all users with a jailbroken handset that they can now safely update to iOS 5.0.1, as a download will be coming sooner rather than later. Currently, there is no exact ETA on when the download will be available, but it’s a good idea to keep an eye on Pod2g’s personal Twitter account here to keep yourself in the loop.

Some important details to be aware of, as we can confirm that the untethered jailbreak on iOS 5 is only for A4-supported devices only, applying to the likes of the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod Touch 4G and the iPad. That means that for the time being, this will not support newer Apple devices such as the iPhone 4S or the iPad 2, but let’s hope that changes in the future.

With the untethered jailbreak at users disposal, it will now mean that their handset remains in a jailbroken state whenever the device is rebooted or runs out of battery. At the moment, iOS 5 users need to connect their device to a computer every time to gain full jailbreak functionality, but this will no longer be the case once the Chronic Dev Team release it. We’re guessing that the release will coincide with the release of Apple’s official iOS 5.1 update which is now in beta.
