Hopefully we have it by Christmas. That would be awesome. I estimated 2 months after the release of the 4S. Sounds about right. I'm staying at 5.0 until told otherwise.

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.

no musclenerd has stated not to update past 5.0 at this time. anything past that is unlikely to have a untethered jailbreak for a while. they have already said the exploit is gone for 5.0.1. people just don't understand the work the devs do too 1. find the exploit and 2. come up with a simple and polished jailbreak experience. it could be months before the 4S has another jailbreak. however the Iphone 4 and 3GS still have tethered jailbreaks to look forward too. Also a little easier to jailbreak.

This one from nov 21:

@MuscleNerd
Think we've figured out a way to extend PwnageTool+limera1n+@comex hacks to untethered JBs for all future A4 firmwares :)

And this from nov 10

@MuscleNerd
Jailbreakers and unlockers should avoid today's 5.0.1 until a flow for downgrading to 5.0 is developed.

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? :rolleyes:

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!!

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.

Since you are using a 4s, the fact it might work on 'ALL future A4 firmware' is irrelevant to you.

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.
