iOS hacker pod2g has updated his official blog, suggesting that the untethered iOS 5 jailbreak for A5-equipped devices that he and the “dream team” have been working on could be released very shortly. Although he still doesn’t give a precise ETA, pod2g claims that it should be just “a matter of days” now.
The hacker reiterated that because fellow hacker Yiduo Wang (@planetbeing) was able to successfully escape the sandbox, there “should be nothing left blocking [an] A5 jailbreak.” Last month, A4-powered devices including the iPhone 4, newest iPod touch, and original iPad were treated with an iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak. Apple’s A5 chip currently powers the iPhone 4S and iPad 2. Who’s excited?
