i0n1c tweeted yesterday that the untethered exploit used in iOS 4.3.x jailbreaks is now dead in the first beta of iOS 5. This really should be no surprise as it was a miracle that Apple did not patch i0n1c’s untethered exploit in their small iOS 4.3.x updates. With this said it means another untethered exploit will need to be developed to take the iOS 5 jailbreak out of a tethered state.
You can take a look at i0n1c’s tweet below:
We will update you when any new information is revealed about the progress of the iOS 5 jailbreak. Until that time please stay tuned.
