Great news for iPhone and iPad 2 users , Today at MyGreatFest the famous iPhone hacker, P0sixninja, has announced that they discovered five userland exploits for both the iPad 2 and iPhone 5.So the untethered jailbreak for iPhone 5 and iPad 2 on iOS 5 is so soon.
As reported by the two hackers, untethered to jailbreak iOS 5, which will probably run with a new version of Greenpois0n , will use five types userland and exploits. A jailbreak userland is basically a type as another jailbreak. The only difference is the technical nature of the vulnerabilities exploited.
A jailbreak type userland using hacks and exploits the “minor” that can be easily corrected by Apple at the software level. This type of jailbreak has been used in tools such as Spirit and JailbreakMe of Comex that, indeed, have been hampered by Apple a few weeks.
The jailbreak based instead on the exploits at bootrom – so hardware – are more difficult to correct for Apple because they act directly on a physical device. Therefore the only way to correct these vulnerabilities is to release a hardware upgrade of the component in question, an episode in the past with the iPhone 3G.
To jailbreak untethered , however, refers to a kind of jailbreak that it does not require connecting the device to the computer to reboot. In other words, a jailbreak, “normal”. Untethered opposed to jailbreak jailbreak tethered provides that instead of connecting to the computer to complete the reboot. This type of release is currently being used to jailbreak iOS 5 beta.
Of course hackers will wait for the release of iOS 5 and above iPhone 5 before publishing the new tool to jailbreak, so as to avoid that Apple can fix vulnerabilities discovered in recent weeks.
The iPhone 5 could theoretically be jailbroken before being released …
Hackers have completed their intervention MyGreatFest reassuring all interested users to jailbreak with some simple words that can be summarized as follows: the jailbreak you can and will be much longer .
