Pod2g Working on Jailbreak 5.1 iPhone 4S / iPad 2

by on March 11, 2012

Can I jailbreak iPhone 4S / iPad 2 on 5.1 using Absinthe Greenpois0n Jailbreak? Well, despite our warnings to jailbreakers to keep their hands away from the update button, still we have some unlucky guys falling in this trap. As you know that Apple released 5.1 to fix some issues founded in iOS 5.0.1 and bringing new features such as Siri in Japanese, the ability to delete individual images from Photo Stream and incredibly redesigned camera access on lock screen.

Jailbreak 5.1 iPhone 4S iPad 2 Absinthe Greenpois0n

iOS 5.1 new features have stimulated some iPhone 4S and iPad 2 users to hit the silly update button which caused the lose of the unique 5.0.1 Absinthe untethered jailbreak for both iPhone 4S and iPad 2 which took a long time to see the light.

Apple has closed the exploit that was used by Pod2g (the discoverer of the exploit used in 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak with Absinthe) in iOS 5.1 update for both iPhone 4S and iPad 2. What made it difficult, the impossibility of downgrading iPhone 4S / iPad 2 from 5.1 to 5.0.1 even if you have saved SHSH blobs for 5.0.1

  • If you have an iPhone4S, the basic rule above is really the only rule:  you cannot restore back to 5.0.1 once the 5.0.1 signing window is closed, no matter what (even if you saved your SHSH blobs).
  • If you have an iPad2 with saved 4.x hashes, you can in fact downgrade to that 4.x but you won’t be able to get to 5.0.1 once the 5.0.1 signing window is closed (even if you saved your 5.0.1 SHSH blobs).

So what know? Currently there is no jailbreak available for iOS 5.1 with Absinthe Greenpois0n jailbreak, as Apple has closed all the possible ways. So if you still running iOS 5.0.1 on your iPhone 4S / iPad 2 and wanna keep your jailbreak, you MUST stay away from iOS 5.1

Jailbreak 5.1 iPhone 4S / iPad 2 with Absinthe Greenpois0n – Still there is a hope :

Jailbreak 5.1 Absinthe Greenpois0n iPhone 4S iPad 2

Pod2g has just replied on of his fans on Twitter confirming that he is working actively on finding vulnerabilities on 5.1. But you have to know that digging for exploit in devices such as iPad 2 and iPhone 4S (A5-devices) is not the sort of thing that can be developed overnight. We hope that Pod2g will be a lucky guy in finding iOS 5.1 untethered jailbreak for iPhone 4S / iPad 2 soon.

5.1 is a MAJOR game-changer… Good luck to @pod2g, but this stuff takes time, so please leave him alone to work. Everytime he has to reply to questions it takes him away and slows him down. The best way to show support and get this done is to donate to his cause and leave him to his work. Believe me, he wants it as bad as we all do. I’m just pi$$ed because I want iPhoto and I need 5.1 for that! But, me and my jailbroken 5.0.1 iPad 2 will wait ever so patiently for the next big breakthrough… But I am so happy with the current jailbreak, I think I can handle the wait! Sorry if you updated, but when you’re jailbroken, a good rule of thumb is to wait for the dev’s exploiting the software to tell you when it’s safe to upgrade! Believe me, you’ll know it when it’s available! Just to show you how difficult the A5 devices are, it took a year to find the current exploit, and there are only 2 jailbreakable firmwares (4.3.3 & 5.0.1) for these devices, and there is no 4.3.3 for the 4s. Hopefully the exploitation will speed up since these are the main devices now, but who knows. Again, good luck to @pod2g and all dev’s assisting! I can’t wait for you guys to knock our socks off again with another great jailbreak tool! KEEP SENDING THOSE CRASH REPORTS TO CHRONIC-DEV IF YOU UPDATED TO 5.1… That’s your best chance at getting the new jailbreak sooner.

 @Spliff228  you can install iphoto if you find a cracked version (ie. just use installous)

I was so stuppid! i got a new ipad 2 days ago! and i started with IOS 5.0.1! i asumed that i could jailbreak it, so i updated to 5.1.
I tryed everything from downgrading to Greenpoison! NOTHING WORKS! PLEASE HELP! WHAT CAN I DO!!?

Reply

Spliff228 March 12, 2012 at 6:19 pm

@Kellysheena Take it back to the store and return it for a new one a pray it has 5.0.1 on it. Other than that, you’re up a creak without a paddle! Wish I had better news for you, but there is absolutely nothing you can do despite what you may read or hear, it’s just not possible. RETURN & EXCHANGE IMMEDIATELY!!

Spliff228 March 13, 2012 at 12:38 am

@Kellysheena Well, the last one took almost 8 months to release, so unless there is a glaring exploit that apple blatantly missed, I think we’re looking at another long haul. But we can always keep our fingers crossed. If you bought it 2 days ago just return and exchange it after you back it up, then load your backup on the new one. Won’t take long at all. If you NEED to be jailbroken, waiting for the next release will kill you.

 @Spliff228  @Kellysheena Yea maybe it was 8 months ago, but this is just a software update, not a whole new CPU like before.

Reply

Spliff228 March 15, 2012 at 1:14 am

@R3TRI8UTI0N @Kellysheena Very true, I hope you’re right. There’s nothing I’d like more! The sad fact is that these have just taken a while in the past, and there’s still no boot level exploit which makes it much different than the iPhone 4 and lower devices. You are correct that it should be a little quicker now that they have a good injection method, but it’s still tons of crap to go through to not only find a vulnerability, but to be able to effectively exploit that vulnerability. I’m sure these guys will get it sooner rather than later, but I’d still take the iPad back because I’m relatively impatient. You are right though, it should be much quicker, especially now that the entire community knows what to look for and is on the hunt and reporting to the dev’s! I’m keeping my fingers crossed because 5.1 seems to have some nice new features!

 @Spliff228  @Kellysheena  hi guys i have the same problem which Kellysheena has but  i accidentally upgrade my new 4s iphone and you recomend to take it back if it’s not too late i bought week ago, but what i suppose to say them in store , if there is nothing wrong with device!  it’s possible to replace it without reason? thank you very much)))

Reply

Spliff228 March 15, 2012 at 4:51 pm

@Stefanman @Spliff228 @Kellysheena You can’t just tell them that nothing is wrong with it. That’s just stupid. Of course they won’t take it back if you say there is nothing wrong with it and you just want to exchange it. Especially if you go to an Apple store; they know what you’re up to. This isn’t rocket science people! Here are 2 scenarios:
You either say this thing sucks I just don’t want it then leave and go buy another one somewhere else, or even at the same store a few minutes later!

OR

Tell them you have a problem that you haven’t been able to replicate and you’ve restored it several times and each time after a few hours use it locks up and you have to reboot it. You can use the same story wether its an iPad or a 4s. The impulse buyers remorse is always an effective tactic which also tends to garnish some sympathy as well. Good luck, but seriously, don’t waste any more time trying to restore these things back to a lower iOS because it just won’t work no matter how many prayers you said last night! You’re just going to keep being disappointed! Now grow some ba!!s and don’t take no for an answer from those “geniuses!!!”

 @Kellysheena if you bought it from Apple you have 14 days to take it back…. Take it back and get another on 5.0.1

I try to take it back and they said, well if there is nothing wrong with it why?they adviced me to reset my ipad. Thst would fix my problems. Ofcource i do not have any problems with it, but i just wanted to jailbreak it. I couldt have said that in the store right. Ohh i dont want it anymore because i cant jailbreak lol. I tryed everything. No downgrade or jailbreak works. Well we all have to wait then.mand yes waiting sucks. Maybe in the meanwhile a miracle happens? Any news about a jailbreak or a downgrade option that works? Damm bitches at Apple.

Spliff228 March 16, 2012 at 11:54 am

You are welcome! See people, this guy did it and that was a 4s, not even an iPad which means this person had to even deal with a cell phone company and was still able to get a new device! iPad should be much easier if you can lie at all convincingly, but you better hurry up before your return window closes! Screw apple, they did this to themselves by not letting us run what we want to run! Hurry up and take it back if there’s still time! You could even think about maybe exchanging it for a “New iPad” or returning it for the price you paid and then going and buying one for $100 less at another store now that the price will be reduced!! DO WORK, HOMIE! Scam the man!

Hi im chris
i have a iphone 4s and yes it updated to 5.1.0, people thinking of doing it as i dont really think its worth it??? ok i lost my jailbreak which is a real pain in the arse, the only thing i think i can say about the new software is the battery seems to last a tad longer and you have an @ button on email thats it, STAY AWAY FROM 5.1  and if you have updated like me, Just live with it until the sort a jailbreak out (hopefully)…

cant apple just leave the exploits alone why are they trying so hard to get rid of jail breaking.Why the hell are they so concerned the only reason they should be is because of installous why not attack them instead .So we can keep our jailbreaks for as long as the iphone is around

brngrnd March 22, 2012 at 3:30 am

@Pwnge Don’t forget that vulnerabilities permitting people to jailbreak also permit hackers to do something nefarious. iOS has a virtually perfect track record for malware, and it only makes sense that Apple would want to keep it that way.
