After a long long wait pod2g has finally made available Redsn0w 0.9.10b1 to jailbreak untethered iOS 5.0.1 your iPhone 4, iPod 4G or iPad. Although it still wont give you an untethered jailbreak on your iPhone 4S or the iPad 2, for which all of us have been desperately waiting, nonetheless this latest version of redsn0w to jailbreak iOS 5.01 untethered is a welcome addition by any means.
iPhone 4S and the iPad 2 cant get an untethered jailbreak because both are based on the A5 processor, which is proving hard to be exploited with Geohot’s limera1n exploit, because apple has found and plugged most of the security holes. And the fact doesn’t help either that geohot now works for apple. Nonetheless we have firm belief on the capabilities of the genius guys of the iPhone DEV team to jailbreak iOS 5.0.1 for iPhone 4S.
We do find that it’s a strange move on part of the iPhone dev team to release the untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.0.1 now before releasing an untethered jailbreak for iPhone 4s, for it would give Apple the chance to fix the security holes that have been exploited this time, which could further delay an untethered jailbreak for iPhone 4S.
