The iPad 2 runs on an A5 processor, the same as the iPhone 4S and so far there hasn’t been any jailbreak for iOS 5.1 on both of these devices. However, it looks like, hacker @i0n1c may have an answer to this. He was the sole person behind the iOS 4.3.x untethered jailbreak and he just posted pictures of an iPad 2 running iOS 5.1 and jailbroken.
iOS 5.1 was released by Apple during the launch of the new iPad and even though it doesn’t bring a lot of new features, it is an important update. If you’re on the same firmware and are waiting for an untethered jailbreak, then i0n1c may perhaps deliver one. Recently we told you that pod2g, the hacker behind the iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak, is also working on an untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.1. Now i0n1c has apparently found an exploit for the jailbreak, although we don’t know if it’s untethered. The Cydia version is also new, it shows Cydia 1.1.5!
That’s all there is to this small yet big update. i0n1c hasn’t given any other details other than the pictures, so only time will tell the rest of the story. We will keep you updated with more information when it arises. Anybody waiting for the iOS 5.1 untethered jailbreak?
