This is the Current Jailbreaking Status

The jailbreaking community has been buzzing lately with all sorts of progress, status updates, and other developments. We’ve seen a number of different jailbreaking methods previewed in the last week, in addition to the release of iOS 5.1.1 and redsn0w 0.9.11b1. All of this can be very confusing if you are loosely following the jailbreak scene, so the following information should give you a better idea of where we stand at this point in time.

  • iOS 5.1.1: No jailbreak — tethered or untethered — for the iPhone 4S, iPad 2, or new iPad yet; however, an untethered jailbreak has been previewed by pod2g (method one) and i0nic (method two) for the new iPad. The untethered jailbreak by pod2g in particular is still weeks away and may be held off until iOS 6 is released, while i0n1c will not be releasing his exploit to the community. A tethered jailbreak using redsn0w is available for older devices.
  • iOS 5.1: No jailbreak — tethered or untethered — for the iPhone 4S, iPad 2, or new iPad yet. An untethered jailbreak has been previewed by pod2g for both the iPhone 4 and new iPad running iOS 5.1. That jailbreak is still weeks away and may be held off until iOS 6 is released. A tethered jailbreak using redsn0w is available for older devices.
  • iOS 5.0.1: An untethered jailbreak using Absinthe by the Chronic Dev-Team is available for iPhone 4S and iPad 2, while a seperate untethered jailbreak using redsn0w by the iPhone Dev-Team is available for older devices. Absinthe can also be used for an untethered jailbreak on the iPhone 4S running iOS 5.0.
