DHLizard, who used to be a reg on these forums...he went over to the dev team. a genius i might add, just put this out. some good news Upcoming jailbreak(s) Apple is going to release 5.0.1 sooner than later. If you want to get an untethered jailbreak on iOS5, you may need to update to iOS5 (5.0 firmware) before Apple stops signing 5.0 pod2g who believes he has an untethered exploit for 5.0 firmware Tweeted this pod2g pod2g Note about 5.0.1 : don't update if you plan on jbking : the bug Charlie MILLER found can simplify exploits dramatically and will be closed. (This refers to the exploit @0xcharlie recently found in iOS which may simplify any number of exploits) This is a dangerous vulnerability and will need to be patched by hackers after we use it for exploits (as was done with .pdf patchers via Cydia) So you may need to be on 5.0 firmware to get a tethered jailbreak in the future Also remember, there should be an overlap when Apple signs both firmwares for several hours after 5.0.1 is released Do not update to 5.0.1 when it comes out (until the hackers advise otherwise) ! Hashes no longer allow restores to 5.x.x firmware versions (what does this mean ?) If Apple releases 5.0.1 and stops signing 5.0, you can no longer restore or upgrade to 5.0 (except for the short overlap when Apple signs both firmwares) You will be forced to 5.0.1 and may not be able to use the untethered jailbreak !
