I0n1c Successfully Jailbreaks iOS 5.1!

I0n1c Successfully Jailbreaks iOS 5.1!

I0n1c has just announced the successful jailbreak of iOS 5.1 on the iPad 2 via a series of pictures posted to his Twitter.

I0n1c is the hacker behind the 4.3.1 untethered jailbreak. While no further information has been provided on his exploit, we are hopeful that this is an untethered jailbreak that would work for all devices on iOS 5.1, including the iPhone 4S; however, we cannot confirm that yet.

If the exploit is in the OS it could even work for the iPad 3 scheduled for release tomorrow, as I0n1ic hints, "Anyway so maybe the iPad 3 will not be jailbroken tomorrow, but on Monday or whenever I get my iPad 3."

Well done, iClarified. This post is an other starting point of people becoming impatient and complaining about "broken promises". You should know that just a screenshot of Cydia does not mean that it can run all unsigned codes perfectly. Remember how long it took from Musclenerds initial screenshot to final release? Better to assume that it will still take a long time. If JB is released sooner than you thought, great! But stop bitching around if it doesn't come out next week.

watch out because ionic is the asshole who said jailbreaks should block Installous from being installed in jailbroken devices

I completely agree!! Block Installous so cheap thieves will stop giving jailbreaking a bad name. Please block it!!!

Sorry to brake your bubble, but the point of the Jailbrake is to give you ROOT access, to your device. So you have access to EVERYTHING on that device. So I don't think there is a way to block it.
