Now that we know the iOS 5.1.1 Untethered Jailbreak comes in the form of Absinthe v2.0, and have even saw a video demo of the Jailbreaking process. It is safe to say the Pod2G is close to unveiling the iOS 5.1.1 Untethered Jailbreak to the public.
When a lot of people are waiting for a new Jailbreak to be released they go into something I call “release-date frenzy”. It never fails… whenever people know that a certain Jailbreak is getting close to being released they automatically assume the developers are holding back the Jailbreak to piss people off or something. Most people realize that this is definitely not the case, but there are still a big chunk of people who leave very negative comments thinking the developers owe them something and should release the Jailbreak now.
A Jailbreak will not be released until it is ready. There are so many complications that occur when creating a Jailbreak and so much work that goes into creating one. In fact, we have heard from various hackers in the Jailbreaking community and one thing that always comes up in interviews is that iOS has been the hardest platform to exploit. Coming from these technical geniuses this really tells you something about the nature of creating a Jailbreak. It is a tedious and extremely hard task requiring hundreds of hours of R&D (research and development).
That is why a Jailbreak will be released when it is ready, not when thousands of people start complaining. As even if the developers behind the iOS 5.1.1 Untethered Jailbreak released something in a semi-functional state people would just start complaining it is buggy.
Though we do not know exactly when the iOS 5.1.1 Untethered Jailbreak will be released, we do know it will be in a matter of days. As such, why not donate to the developers behind that iOS 5.1.1 Untethered Jailbreak that include Pod2G and members of both the iPhone Dev-Team and Chronic Dev-Team.
The link comes from the info guide MuscleNerd posted earlier. Obviously donations are never required, but are greatly appreciated by the developers who spend hours upon hours making Jailbreaking what it is today. Did you donate? If so let us know in the comments section below.
P.S. Remember even the smallest donations make a difference. If 100,000 people donated a mere $1 that would obviously be $100,000.
