Pod2g has announced that the code signing bug Charlie Miller found in iOS 5 will make creating a jailbreak much easier and warns users not to update to iOS 5.0.1.

Note about 5.0.1 : don't update if you plan on jbking : the bug Charlie MILLER found can simplify exploits dramatically and will be closed.

Just two days ago, pod2g announced that he had found a vulnerability that could untether the jailbreak for iOS 5. At that time we were told not to expect a release soon; however, Miller's bug could speed up the timetable for release.

So what does that mean for those of us who are still on 4.3.3 because we didnt want to go to 5.0 without a JB ? Are we royally screwed now that its 5.0.1 and we haven't installed 5.0 ?

If you have an iPhone 3GS or iPhone 4 and are on the 4.3.3 Firmware, you MUST restore to the iOS 5.0 Firmware while Apple is still signing it. SHSH Blobs do not work on iOS 5.0. This means once they stop signing 5.0 (Any day now) You will NOT be able to upgrade or downgrade to iOS 5.0 (Until further notice, possibly never!). While Apple has released 5.0.1, You can still put your iPhone into DFU mode and Alt+Click (Shift+Click for Mac) Restore to the iOS5 Firmware which you can download here:

It doesn't matter. the agreement dev-team made with Apple means there will NEVER be another meaningful software unlock released by them AND any jailbreak (outside of a buggy userland exploit of an OLD firmware) will be tethered for most of it's life. Face it folks, Apple got to the only people who could do this reliably. It is what it is, and luckily Apple fixed a lot of the reasons to jailbreak anyway. Sad, but it will NEVER be the way it was. Apple paid dev-team plenty. Believe me, I know. And before anyone wants proof, be ready to provide some proof I'm wrong. Apple reached out to them right about the same time jailbreaking was rendered officially legal. I'm right. It's over. Thanks for all they did, but it's OVER.

FINALLY somebody with a brain on here...... I also say they been taken under apples wing, but I still think JB will be out for iPhone 4s and iPad 2 so the sales of iPhone 4s can boom. Then in Jan or Feb final JB for iPhone 4 then that's the last of the era.

Used to be JailBreaking comes out really fast and works perfectly, now don't know why Dev Team are having a hard time. Just wondering...

How about you try jailbreaking a device without getting paid and see how long it will take you.

Anony how about you stop kissing ass, I was just wondering. As for the Dev team not getting paid, that's also questionable. so shut the fuck up ass kisser.
