All those with an iPhone 4S or iOS 5 upgradable devices, like the iPhone 4 or iPad, waiting to break the bonds from their computers and permanently jailbreak their device get a small glimpse of hope today. A ‘developer’ (or should we say hacker), @pod2g, has tweeted that a bug in iOS 5 could finally allow untethered jailbreaking.
Currently, if you have a jailbroken iOS 5 device, you need to connect it to a computer every time you restart in order for the device to start properly. A huge hassle. The developer warns though, that the exploit might not come soon, but we are crossing our fingers here. As the late Steve Jobs said, it’s the developer and hacking community that has always realized the true potential of technology.
