The hard work of iOS hackers has finally been fructified. Two jailbreakers from the two different Dev-teams have released the much awaited untethered jailbreak for Apple's A4 devices running on iOS 5 and iOS 5.0.1.
Chronic Dev-team's French member Pod2g and iPhone Dev-team's MuscleNerd released their own versions of the untethered jailbreaks Corona 5.0.1 Untethered and Redsn0w 9.10b1 respectively. But with the release of the authentic jailbreak comes the product to dupe the Apple users in the name of jailbreaking.
Searching for news about the latest jailbreak, one might come across reports about a program which could unlock and jailbreak even A5 devices like iPhone 4S. iPhoneunlockeasily.com claims to offer No. 1 iPhone unlocking solution which can help jailbreak and unlock any iPhone 2G, 3G, 3GS, 4 and iPhone 4S.
Like earlier fake jailbreaks EasyRa1n, FastRa1n and GhostApp, iPhoneunlockeasily is also charging $24.99 for the jailbreak which is available for free when you download it from any of the two Dev-teams.
The tech world has witnessed a series of jailbreaks ever since the release of Apple's new operating system, iOS 5, in October. However, many people, who had been looking for an untethered jailbreak to avoid the frequent rebooting of their devices, found themselves duped by some fake versions which cost them between $9.99 and $24.99.
Here are some untethered jailbreaks you should avoid.
FastRa1n and EasyRa1n both are release by the same person/group though the Web site addresses are different. The presentation, specification and the pricing show that it is another honeytrap for the Apple users looking for a jailbreak for their devices.
The untethered jailbreak is the first one to appear after the iOS 5 release and is available for $24.99.
Credibility: There has been no report which can prove that the jailbreak is authentic. A Dev team member, who uses the name @comex on Twitter, confirmed that it is fake software.
This program is also available for $24.99 and claims to unlock iPhone 3G, 3GS, 4 and 4S.
Credibility: The first doubt strikes iOS 5 users when the sites charge same $24.99 for the untethered jailbreak. And the second one comes when there is no trial version or demo available to check the program.
Unlock iPhone 4S
This Untethered version is available for $24.95.
Credibility: Though the Web site - unlockiphone4s-ios.com - gives a money-back guarantee, there is no proper review of the program on any of the tech sites or magazines.
This application was available in Apple's Apps Store for $9.99, but the Cupertino company reacted swiftly and removed the application.
Credibility: This application was termed Fake by Apple and Dev team.
