iOS 5.1 Untethered Jailbreak Update: Two ‘Big Vulnerabilities’ Have Been Discovered

In quick and secretive Jailbreak update, pod2g (a key iOS hacker and security expert that was instrumental in the creation of the iOS 5.0.1 Untethered Jailbreak) revealed that he’s had a “productive week-end”. The famed hacker reported his recent findings in a short and to the point Tweet:

iOS 5.1 6.0 untethered Jailbreak


Recently, pod2g initiated a poll on his blog to determine the fate of the five (now apparently seven) exploits that’ve been confirmed to work on iOS 5.1.

The two newly-discovered exploits could either be used in an iOS 5.1 untethered utility or saved until iOS 6, depending on how pod2g decides to utilize them. Regardless, it goes without saying that these two “kernel land” and “root land” exploits will greatly benefit the Jailbreak community.

With pod2g’s poll to determine how to utilize the known exploits coming to a close in a matter of days, be sure to vote if you haven’t already to determine the future of the Jailbreak community. Stay tuned for full coverage on the iOS 5.1 Untethered Jailbreak status and news regarding future Jailbreaks.
