Untethered Jailbreak For iPhone 4S Could Still Be Weeks Away

Untethered Jailbreak For iPhone 4S Could Still Be Weeks Away

Despite a message posted to Twitter by Pod2g earlier this week, suggesting an untethered jailbreak for the iPhone 4S was less than a week away from public release, a new blog post detailing the iOS hacker’s process indicates the exploit could still be weeks away yet.

Pod2g has revealed that his new exploit requires a developer account to inject the necessary files to your device, and until he finds a way around this, the hack will not see a public release.

Pod2g has made quite a name for himself developing the jailbreak in recent weeks, and has been keeping the community up to date on his progress with regular posts on his blog. His latest, however, does’t make for pleasant reading if you’re itching to jailbreak your new A5-powered iPhone 4S, or the iPad:

The exploit I used to inject the untethering files to the 4S relies on having a developer account, and can’t be released publicly.It’s the same reason why @MuscleNerd has an iPad 2 tethered jailbreak but couldn’t distribute it. So, we need to find a distributable exploit to remount the system partition read/write and to set Corona files at the correct places.

The post suggests there’s still a lot of work to be done before the jailbreak goes public, and that we could be waiting a long while before we’re cracking our latest devices.
