French iOS jailbreak hacker pod2g has just announced on Twitter that he has a fully untethered jailbreak running on iOS 5.1 using a new iPad 3rd generation. It may not be fully stable, but pod2g’s tweet asserts that he will be working on stabilizing the payload and then trying out this exploit on iOS 5.1.1.
Just one week ago, pod2g tweeted that his iPhone 4 on iOS 5.1 was running an untethered jailbreak. He and the rest of the iPhone Dev-Team have been working hard to get an untethered iOS 5.1 jailbreak on all devices soon. For now, keep checking for updates on pod2g’s Twitter account.
