To help with the untethered jailbreak that pod2g is currently working on for A5-equipped devices, the iOS hacker has assembled a team consisting of many other prominent hackers in the jailbreak community.
Apple’s A5 chip currently powers the iPhone 4S and iPad 2. The following hackers were recruited to the “dream team” to help with the release of an iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak for the aforementioned devices:
- Yiduo Wang (@planetbeing): The founder of Linux for iPhone and responsible for many different jailbreaks
- Joshua Hill (@p0sixninja): Leader of the Chronic Dev Team, the makers of greenpois0n
- @MuscleNerd: Leader of the iPhone Dev Team, jailbreaking and unlocking guru, helpful with beta testing
By working together, hopefully an iOS 5 untethered jailbreak for the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 is not too far off the radar. Last month, pod2g released an iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak for non-A5 devices including the original iPad and iPhone 4.
