Many of you have been eagerly awaiting a jailbreak for iOS devices running iOS 5.1, and today it just got a little bit closer. Pod2G announced that he and his team have discovered all the exploits necessary for a 5.1 jailbreak! According to his twitter, he’s now working on “bypassing ASLR at bootup.” This news is much better than Pod2G’s last update, which basically said that the jailbreak was still a long way away.
Of course, this new development doesn’t mean we’ll be hackin out 5.1 gadgets next week. As jailbreak developer chpwn (also known as Grant Paul) points out:
“Remember: just because all the exploits are found doesn’t mean that a jailbreak exists — it’s likely months away from first working at all.”
So it’s still going to be a little while before this hack is up and running and ready for public use, but this is certainly a step in the right direction.
