    First of all, I'm sorry for making this thread ...

    Is there any estimated date for the untethered jailbreak for 5.1?

    Also, since I don't want to make another thread for this, things that bug me in 5.1:

    1. When you're moving apps, if you touch an empty space they go out of wiggle mode
    2. You can't edit photos in the camera app
    3. The new unlock screen doesn't feel right, I'm not a fan
    4. The brightness settings is still too hard to get to, make it so I can pull down the notification centre and slide the brightness. Also, add a kill all apps button to the notification centre.

    I'm not on 5.1 so I can't comment on that!

    Soon

    The information on the iPhone Dev Team site seems to suggest it is close by http://blog.iphone-dev.org/
    I'd guess in about 2 weeks.
    The untethered jailbreak isn't so bad is it? :)

    I just got my iPhone 4S. I did an automatic software upgrade, and I'm on ios 5.1. Now I tried to jailbreak it and found that it's not available yet! Geez!

    Hey, maybe next time you won't do an "automatic" software update...

    I'm just going to continue to be patient. My phone as of late has been acting up and I just want to exchange it but my JB means to much to me to lose it.

    Thanks for the input.

    i0n1c says he is not releasing his jailbreak. Claims he did it to show off.

    chpwn does not do jailbreaks, but has some great mods/hacks

    i0n1c always likes to tease it's almost mean... Sometimes I wonder why I like him.

    He is way beyond mean to people.
    You would probably be one of the few that "like" him.
    I have a much different opinion.

    true that and like is probably the wrong word. I keep asking myself why I haven't stopped fallowing him.

    I still follow him on Twitter in case he decides to release something to help the jailbreak community
    But enduring his Tweets takes it's toll :(

    Wow that sucks. A lot of people stuck without a jailbreak and this guy doesn't want to release it just cause.

    In my opinion, the issue isn't that he wont release it. All software developers can do whatever they want to with what they've written. The issue is the arrogance and attitude of i0n1c for posting this information.

    I had to stop following him. 99% of his tweets were bitter drivel.

    Actually I bought a $5.99 game, and when installing it it says iOS5 is required, so I clicked yes, because I don't want to waste the $5.99.

    Thank goodness I didn't have to wait long. Now I'm on JB.

    It's also entirely possible that the jailbreak he has done to his phone is not something that can be publicly distributed due to rights issues.

    Nothing on the DevTeam Blog ever suggested 2 weeks.
    Just people's guesses and opinions, same as this thread.
