Recently we gave you guys some good news on the status of the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 untethered jailbreak. Pod2g, the iPhone hacker who was responsible for the recent iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak, tweeted that a new A5 untethered jailbreak could be released next week. Soon after that, he also asked everyone who’s not on iOS 5.0.1 to upgrade as soon as they could. This means a great deal to all the iPhone 4S users, because they haven’t got any sort of jailbreak to start with.
Pod2g, earlier today, also posted an FAQ regarding the A5 untethered jailbreak. Some users were disappointed that the iPhone developers couldn’t find an exploit to jailbreak the iPhone 4S. In this FAQ, the hacker describes why exactly was it difficult to do that and why it was easier on the A4 devices. He also tells why he can’t just release the untether to the public, as that is not an easy thing to do.

Because a tethered jailbreak is a good way to install Corona!
Why don’t you do a tethered jailbreak then ?

If I could, I would !
