The 'Dream Team' of hackers have just released their untethered jailbreak for the iPhone 4S and the iPad 2.

P0sixninja details some of the background in a post on the Greenpoison blog:

The ridiculously complex combination of exploits-within-exploits that make this iOS jailbreak possible have consumed thousands of hours of brain-power & effort from a legion of world-renowned hackers, several of whom have been working diligently on this project since the dual-core A5 processor was unveiled by Apple last March. Ten months ago, I myself was live tweeting from a tediously long line at the nearest Apple retail store, where I anxiously waited to become one of the world's first owners (& hackers) of the newly-released iPad 2.

Despite new tools to help with finding exploits they realized a team effort was necessary.

We finally admitted that the escalated obstacles presented by Apple's new A5 processor would not likely be overcome by one individual or team – but all together, we should be more than able to conquer any challenges encountered. As such, a diverse group of iOS hackers all decided to set aside our personal goals & egos, relax our die-hard team loyalties, and pool our respective skill-sets, talents & exploits to form an iOS Super-Hacking "Dream Team."

The initial release is currently for Mac OS X only but Windows is coming soon! You can download it here.

TUTORIALS:
● iPhone 4S (Windows, Mac)
● iPad 2 (Windows, Mac)

You may not really need a jailbreak if you're happy with the way your device work. possible unlock, tweaks probably.

does anyone if the jailbreak will bypass the activation of the phone using a valid sim! because when i jb my 3G it did.. will it work on 4S ? anyone tried it ? thanks

It will not bypass the activation. Anyway, you should have already activated, prior to jailbreaking, using the valid SIM.

I don`t know if someone else have got this issue, I guess that I`ve got some troubles with downloading speed via wifi. Installous is downloading apps with 13kb/s. Is there any possible ways to solve this issue? Safari and Youtube apps works well.
