    Last I heard, Saurik helped pod2g figured out some cache issue.

    Not sure where things stand right now. Has something new popped up?


    Starting to get jumpy over this.

    per the dev team:

    @pod2g is now looking for a way to extend this to A5 devices. Because those devices cannot use geohot’s limera1n exploit to inject the untether, they require exploits above and beyond those used for this release. Keep following pod2g on twitter or his blog for any progress reports!

    So they need to find a way to "Crash" the OS to inject it?

    Is that what he means?


    (sorry - I'm kinda newbish with the terminology)

    Pod2g only got his hands on the 4S and Ipad 2 a little about 2 weeks ago.

    yes they need to find a way to inject that is user friendly i.e develop a tool that can do it for the masses I'm sure it'll be a matter of weeks just hope Apple don't ruin the party first as pod2g has now shown his cards
