As if there wasn’t already enough hype, Chronic Dev Team leader Joshua Hill (@p0sixninja) tweeted a short and simple message this morning about the status of the untethered jailbreak for A5-powered devices. “Not much longer now,” the iOS hacker said. Hill is referring to the untethered jailbreak for iPhone 4S and iPad 2 devices running iOS 5.0.1, something that he and the rest of the jailbreak “dream team” have been working on for the past several weeks.
Additionally, it has been revealed by iOS hacker Yiduo Wang (@planetbeing) that Chronic Dev Team member Nikias Bassen (@pimskeks) has been working on the jailbreaking utility for this iOS 5.0.1 exploit. In his latest tweet from earlier today, Bassen stated that “something’s approaching,” which is presumably this tool that he has been working on. Wang added that he and the other dream team members are currently testing and fixing problems with this jailbreaking application, which he claims that Bassen finished the majority of at incredible speed.
