The Apple A4 iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak has been released by the Chronic Dev Team and the iPhone Dev Team based on work by pod2g.
In a blog posting on Tuesday, pod2g announced the release with links to their respective blog posts and wishes of Happy jailbreaking!!! from the French hacker who has been working to crack Apple's iOS code.
Reads the blog post from pod2g with provided links for the release:
Hello, as expected, the Chronic Dev Team and the iPhone Dev Team have released the A4 untethered for 5.0.1 based on my work.
It is exactly the same set of files, either distributed as a Cydia package for those that are already tethered or a redsn0w bundle for new users.
They both did a great job testing and integrating the payload.

Happy jailbreaking !!!
Last week pod2g had said he was turning over his A4 untethered jailbreak work to the Chronic Dev team so he could focus on A5.
I read the comments on the blog, and I know that a lot of people are waiting for the A5 jailbreak.
Also, I know there are tons of people out there with A4 or even earlier devices who wants the untether now and don't care about it could be interesting to wait A5 is finished to release or even 5.1, so that we don't waste an exploit that took me months to find and develop.
I need to focus on A5 and hope I can find a path quick, and I have the feeling that chronic-dev could help me.
So, here is what I did:
- I gave all the details to the chronic dev team so that they can finish, test, integrate and release the A4 jb ASAP.
- I'll put all my energy from now on on the A5
Hope I don't disappoint.
