Pod2g has posted on his blog to answer some questions about the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 untethered jailbreak.

How could pod2g have an untethered 4S and dev teams still haven't released tools to achieve this at home ?
The exploit I used to inject the untethering files to the 4S relies on having a developer account, and can't be released publicly. It's the same reason why @MuscleNerd has an iPad 2 tethered jailbreak but couldn't distribute it. So, we need to find a distributable exploit to remount the system partition read/write and to set Corona files at the correct places.

Why A4 version of Corona was easier to release ?
Because a tethered jailbreak is a good way to install Corona!

Why don't you do a tethered jailbreak then ?
A tethered jailbreak also relies on an exploitable vulnerability that we still haven't found yet !

Earlier this week, pod2g posted that he had made good progress on the jailbreak for A5 devices and said with some luck we could expect a release in a week.

News is always news to someone. But there will always be the guys who already know and think they're cool for it.
On other breaking news we have finally landed on the Moon:D
Sorry to break it to you but has been posten many times already, maybe news to you.
But it would help to view a few threads about Pod2G instead of posting the same thing people posted 10 hours ago.

you can guess anything over 5-10 minutes is old news in many cases much sooner. I can't tell you how many times I saw something just posted on twitter and there is already a thread about it here.


Oh I'm calling BS on Astronauts landing on the moon. (FAKE)
