December 20th, 2011 A few days back, Chronic Dev Team member an i OS hacker Pod2g revealed a new untethered jailbreak solution for i OS 5.

It is unknown yet whether the exploit will work on Appleā€™s devices with a dual-core A5 chip like the i Pad 2 or the latest i Phone 4S.

At the moment, i OS 5 can be tethered jailbroken using Redsn0w, Ac1d Sn0w or Sn0wbreeze.

If you want a semi-thered jailbreak on i OS 5, you should install the Semi Tether patch from Cydia.

And those of you who are running i OS 5.0.1 can use Redsn0w or Ac1d Sn0w to get a tethered jailbreak.

This means that you can now feel free update your Apple devices supporting the A4 System-on-Chip design to the latest firmware.

This seems like good information for those who accidentally upgraded their i Devices to i OS 5.0.1 and lost their unlock, with no possibility to go back to i OS 5.0.

It is worth noting, however, that the solution that Pod2g developed confirmed to be effective only for i Phones, and i Pads equipped with an A4 processor like the first-gen i Pad, i Phone 3GS, i Phone 4, and Apple TV.

i Phone owners who rely on the Ultrasn0w unlock still should be cautious with upgrading to retain the unlockable baseband.

November 22th, 2011 Unfortunately, as most of you have experienced firsthand, unlocking a brand new i Phone is not an easy task.

A few years back, when the i Phone just came out, software unlocking was much simpler and there was no need to ask the carrier to unlock the i Phone or use the GEVEY card with the dubious legal status.

But it seems that the situation with the freshest Apple smartphone, the i Phone 4S, is different.
