    Pod2g tweeted he and his team could expect the much awaited A5 ios 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak in a week. This is great news. Time to update your A5 to ios 5.0.1 before it's too late !

    Nice find iPhonewoman .

    Quoting Pod2g

    "I made a step today for the A5. With some luck we could expect a release in a week."


    It may not be exactly a week so hopefully people can keep there cool in case he misses the deadline .


    He also disabled comments on his blog which was a very wise move . Based on his tweet it does not seem he takes all those insulting remarks personally like i have seen so many other devs do in the past.

    hoping for the best! sad though that he had to get rid of his comments people were trolling the worst I have seen EVER. If I was him I would just stop there, the comments were so bad

    It sucks that ppl troll like that. He is giving us a gift, and for free on top of it. You can't win with some people, but I am glad he is finally ready to release a JB for us.

    I'd stay cautious with the updates. Get TinyUmb and save your blobs if on 5.0. You never know the 5.0 baseband would be preferred if unlock is in your attainment goals.

    Are you talking about the ones made before this thread? I find it odd the OP is calling out his own thread :p

    But I'm glad this one exists, I dont like the other two (predict release and pod2g updates blog) because they were started on old information, and one wouldnt know when new information was posted, this on the other hands gives up the info we want

    I've been playing with my old 3Gs and 4 jailbreak an missing it on my 4S so bad. To some degree I regret the purchase of the 4S. It is a fantastic phone- IMHO I used an upgrade on this and the galaxy nexus- which the nexus isn't nearly as good as this phone. Just wish it was more distinct from the 4 looks wise- but between the 3Gs and 3G, and 4&4S- we know how things should go from apple from now on. While the 4S is the overall smoothest and fastest phone on the market, with the best camera- I wish it ha that new design.

    Back on track- gimme some freaking A5 jailbreak now!!!!

    Should unlockers update?

    A few days ago they said that unlockers should not update to 5.0.1, so I did not update. Even with this news I did not update. Is there any reason to believe that a) the 4S's 1.0.11 baseband will be able to be unlocked if I stay on 5.0, b) upgrading to 5.0.1 right now will eliminate me from unlocking?

    Thanks. Hopefully this is a constructive question...

    Very happy that it might be coming in a week. However, I won't be updating my iPad2 to 5.01 until the jb has been released. It's on 4.3.3 and jailbroken.

    well I will say this, as I just had my first iPhone. If they release the jailbreak soon I think? (don't quote me) redsnow can make a custom firmware which perseveres your baseband so I am guessing thats how you will do it if you want the unlock. I think why pod2g is saying update now is because you never know when apple will drop 5.0.2 and so on

    With this in mind, I had no regrets going from 5.0.0 to 5.0.1

    once the firmware is updated from 5..0 to 5.0.1 baseband can no longer be preserved. it has to be done in the 5.0 stage. keep in mind @pos2g is talking about the jailbreak @musclenerd is talking about the unlock. I'm yet to see @musclenerd say it's ok to update as well.
