Today we have some strange news, news that is probably going to make you think this is a misheadline or an old article resurfacing on your newsfeed. You see a new Untethered Jailbreak has actually been released for the CDMA iPhone 4 running iOS 5.1. Now you might be thinking to yourself…
Why the heck is this useful or worth reporting on?
Well this is actually the first Untethered Jailbreak for iOS 5.1 because Absinthe 2.0 was only for iOS 5.1.1. And if you somehow happen to be running iOS 5.1 on your CDMA iPhone 4 then you will be glad to know several people have confirmed the Jailbreak works.
Just who made the Jailbreak?
It actually comes from a group called UnthreadedJB and by the way they have marketed the Jailbreak made me initially think it was a scam, which is why I didn’t report on this sooner. Just read through an excerpt on their website… who writes like this?
Welkum to UnthreadedJB sight, we r not #fakr in any farm / fusion. We desgin HTML god right?
We r relesin #iso #unthreaded #son. plis Wait for #reles soon !! We no need $$ project !! Is fre !! We pln to #support #I-Phone 4 #CDMA for #unthreded.
Anyways besides the fact that reading through their website gives me a headache if you have a CDMA iPhone 4 running iOS 5.1 and a Linux machine (because only Linux is supported at this time) you will be able to utilize UnthreadedJB right now.

According to its developers they are also working on a Jailbreak for iOS 6.1.3/4 so we will keep you updated.

This may not be dodgy. But they have only released the tool right now for Linux, so don’t be getting your hopes up that these guys will bring an iOS 7 jailbreak at any point in time, well, maybe by the time we’re on iOS 9…
lol….its a good answer to those turtle hacker….
Heh. This one has Steffan Esser written all over it!
But it’s a start, making a jailbreak is not easy. In the future they could even collaborate in a new jailbreak, who knows…
