Yay!!!! I knew they were working on it!! My prediction of early 2012 still stands though....
they will probably be on 5.0.2 by the time this is released. Wonder if it's only for 5.0 or will work up to the current IOS version at the time.
This one from nov 21:
Think we've figured out a way to extend PwnageTool+limera1n+@comex hacks to untethered JBs for all future A4 firmwares
21 nov via Twitter for iPhone
And this from nov 10
Jailbreakers and unlockers should avoid today's 5.0.1 until a flow for downgrading to 5.0 is developed.
10 nov via web
because the dev has their lips sealed on this one...so hearing anything gives hope to people to stay at 5.0...or that there will be a jb at all.musclenerd tweets they are working on the jb but there's a lot of work still to do.
Why is this news or anything to get excited about?
Since you are using a 4s, the fact it might work on 'ALL future A4 firmware' is irrelevant to you.So does this mean that the newer Tweet stating that they may have found a way to possibly apply the existing limera1n / @comex exploits to "ALL future A4 firmwares" - since that tweet was newer than the one on the 10th stating to remain at 5.0, we may have hopes for untethered JB on 5.0.1 (or 5.0.2 if its out by the time the JB is released)??
If not, my fear is that anything can happen causing a need for a restore... and for us on 4s that automatically means updating to the newest firmware (for now) so we'd lose the JB. Hopefully the above is true!!
agreed, just like to know someone is actually working on it. else i would be trying to get a iphone 4 that is jb already.Maybe so, but jailbreakme leaked prematurely, the devs are tight on info.
In the first tweets musclenerd stressed that LOTS of work needed.
The nuance is that it still needs work, which might imply they are making progress. Besides that also working on a downgrade path, they are busy.
I'm happy with any info the devs care to share.
i highly doubt it. everyone is with their families now i bet.Wirelessly posted (Mozilla/5.0 (iPhone; CPU iPhone OS 5_0 like Mac OS X) AppleWebKit/534.46 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/5.1 Mobile/9A334 Safari/7534.48.3)
I still have a feeling a black friday release could happen
