Now we have heard about the news “Heya! My iPhone 4 running iOS 5.1 is now untethered” from Pod 2g, which is a good result, but what you may don’t know is the reason in the first part. Actually, Pod 2g has been confused about whether he should jailbreak iOS 5.1 at this time or not, then what made him think that way?
We all know that WWDC is going to be held in a few day, and there is a big chance that Apple will release iOS 6 at the conference, so many hackers think it’s not worthy to jailbreak iDevices running iOS 5.1 right now, because once they publishing the vulnerabilities, Apple will fix these bugs as soon as possible, then it will be harder for hackers to jailbreak iOS 6. But most of us want the untethered jailbreak, we just not only need to know how to convert dvd to ipad, we need more like untethered jailbreak to use our iPads with full rights and benefits.
Luckily Pod 2g would like to know the users’ opinions, so he let us to vote in his official blog “Shall we hold off the jailbreak for iOS 6?” After the vote was over, he shows us the result immediately, of course, the result is not to wait for iOS 6. The jailbreak community appears to have been split by Pod2g’s question. 78,184 voters responded, with 44,609 (57 percent) of them wanting the jailbreak to be released immediately and 31,587 (40 percent) of them believing that the hackers should hold off until iOS 6 is released. Only 1,988 (2 percent) of the voters seem like they don’t care about anything at all.
Just what is the big deal about an untethered jailbreak? Well, for those who are not in the know, a tethered jailbreak means you will need to perform the jailbreak process all over again each time the device reboots, while an untethered jailbreak means doing it once only, and you will only need to perform a new jailbreak whenever a later version of iOS rolls around. I know we can convert dvd to ipad free, but after untethered jailbreaking iDevices, more free benefits will come to you, more than your imagine.
So now, after the poll was over, we see “Heya! My iPhone 4 running iOS 5.1 is now untethered” via his twitter. It’s definitely good news for us, but let’s see what other hackers say about this. Stefan Esser, who has made many contributions to the jailbreak community, including the Untethered Jailbreak exploit for iOS 4.3, his reaction to the complexity of this jailbreak seems to be surprise: “if you require 5-6 exploits then I guess your way will be…
