Just a few hours ago, @pod2g , a famous iOS hacker, posted on his twitter a video of a untethered jailbreak that he finally got it working.
In the video, it shows a iPod touch running on iOS 5.0. Pod2g showcased himself opening Cydia, indicating its jailbroken. He then switched off his itouch, and turn it back on, and reopened Cydia, indicating its a untethered boot.
This comes as a good news to us, seeing that Christmas is round the corner. A very good pleasant gift to all users out there waiting for a untethered jailbreak.
Right now as of posting, the untethered jailbreak will work on iOS 5.0 for all devices except ipad 2 and iphone 4s.
Let’s rejoice and wait.
You can get it from http://www.greenpois0n.com
As of last week, Chronic team had officially release the Mac version of greenpois0n, and the Windows version few days after.
This greenpois0n jailbreak allows you to jailbreak your iDevice(all supported) with iOS 4.2.1 untethered.
This tool is simple to use. Off your device and close your iTunes before proceeding with the jailbreak.
TIPS: You might want to have a fresh restore before jailbreaking.
NOTE: User who had jailbreaked 4.2.1 using redsnow monte can just run greenpois0n over it. It will still work.
Right now, the Cydia store is being flooded with lots of traffic, and so some of the sources might be unable to work.
Its best to wait a few more days before jailbreaking.
