iOS 6 Or 5.1 Untethered Jailbreak? Pod2g’s Letting You Decide

Jailbreak 5.1 untethered iOS 6Pod2g, one of the main iOS hackers behind recent efforts to release an iOS 5.1 untethered Jailbreak utility, has been if nothing else open regarding the development stages of 5.1 untethered Jailbreak. In pod2g’s last update, he revealed that he could release a utility in as little as a month or not release one at all (presumably to save the exploits for Apple’s next major mobile operating system release: iOS 6).

Pod2g 5.1 or iOS 6.0 poll JailbreakEarly this morning pod2g added a poll to his blog with the intention of having members of the Jailbreak community vote on what they want to happen with the 5 exploits pod2g and his team have discovered. The two serious options in the poll, pictured to the right, ask users whether they want a utility as fast as possible for the current firmware (iOS 5.1) or whether they want pod2g to hold off until iOS 6 is officially released.

Before haphazardly voting, there are some key points to consider that I’ll go over now. First, if pod2g doesn’t hold off until iOS 6 and releases an untethered Jailbreak for 5.1, it could be quite some time before an iOS 6 Jailbreak is created for newer devices due the complexity level of current Jailbreaks.

Secondly, if the exploits are saved, iOS 6 will practically be Jailbroken upon launch and an untethered utility will be available shortly after iOS 6 is.

Third, as p0sixninja pointed out, like past major firmware updates, iOS 6 will likely be in beta stages for a minimum of three months. If iOS 6 goes into beta right after WWDC 2012, scheduled for June 11-15, we won’t see an untethered Jailbreak from now until sometime around September – that’s over four months!

Finally considering the “new iPad” has yet to be Jailbroken, if pod2g waits until iOS 6, it’ll be that much longer until the first Jailbreak is released for the new device.

Additionally, iOS hackers try to hold on to exploits for as long as possible because otherwise Apple will just release a minor firmware update to patch the (untethered) Jailbreak and then it’s back to square one.

With all of that in mind, be sure to head over to pod2g’s blog and vote on which scenario you’d like to happen within the next 6 days (when the poll closes). Stay tuned for more coverage on Jailbreak situation as events unfold.
