Users of Apple devices have always looked for an authentic untethered jailbreak which could allow them to download and run new and more useful applications. The same thing happened when the Cupertino-based tech giant launched its latest mobile operating system, iOS 5.
Users of iPhone 3, 3G, 4, 4S, iPad, iPad 2, and iPod Touch went crazy on the Internet looking for every small detail and information about the release of the iOS 5 jailbreak.
Though it is tethered, yet the jailbreak has now arrived and is working well in all the devices except iPad 2 and recently launched iPone 4S because of the new A5 processor.
However, as the untethered version of the jailbreak is still being worked on by the Dev-team, users of the iPhone 4S are caught on the horns of a dilemma.
With Apple releasing iOS 5.0.1 beta for developers to overcome the draining battery issues related to the iPhone 4S, users will be thinking twice before jailbreaking the new update fearing the return of battery problem.
Dev-team, which is working very hard to get an untethered jailbreak for the new operating system, will definitely come out with an untethered jailbreak for iOS 5 and iOS 5.0.1 both.
Dev-team member @pod2g tweeted Wednesday: I didn't tell 5.0.1 would never be jbken but it will certainly take more time.
However, the member has also warned users about not updating the devices to iOS 5.0.1 if they plan on jailbreaking. Note about 5.0.1 : don't update if you plan on jbking : the bug Charlie MILLER found can simplify exploits dramatically and will be closed, he tweeted.
The same member Tuesday tweeted about finding a crucial bug in iOS 5 which can lead to untethering the jailbreak of the troubled operating system.
Once the iOS 5.0.1 and an untethered jailbreak for the updated OS are out, iDevice users might be forced to choose between the jailbreak and the battery life.
