The wait for an untethered jailbreak for the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 running iOS 5.0.1 is finally over, with French hacker Pod2G and the Dev Team hackers releasing a jailbreak tool called 'Absinthe', which is indeed a form of 'greenpois0n'.

Published in Fuzzy Logic

Web articles from dubious sounding sources may well be promising that full jailbreaks and unlocks for the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 are available, but they're still scams, with French hacker 'pod2g' showing photos of jailbroken 2 and 4S devices and promising public availability is still 'coming soon'.

Warning: all those sites promising a jailbreak for the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 are lying to you, as it's not possible yet, but if hacker 'pod2g' is successful, a jailbreak for devices running the A5 processor (which is the iPhone 4S and iPad 2) might be coming in the next week or two.

Published in Fuzzy Logic

With the launch of the 2012 iPhone 5 still at least six to nine months away, all of the attention is on the unjailbreakable iPhone 4S and iPad 2, but as of very late 2011, the iPhone 4, iPad and iPod Touch with A4 processors can finally be jailbroken.

Apple iNvoluntarily brought to the iPhone Table?

Giving the iPhone a bigger screen has resulted in an iPad, but now what seems to be a group of German hackers and designers has gone one bigger, letting you turn your iPhone into a 58-inch LED screen multitouch iPhone Table, but there's a catch: you'll need to jailbreak and there's no word yet on the price!

Original iPhone hardware hacker, George Hotz or 'Geohot', has beaten the iPhone Dev Team to an iOS 4.1 jailbreak called Limera1n, giving users to wish to jailbreak their iPad (on iOS 3.2.2), iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod Touch 4th Gen or the iPod Touch 3rd Gen that ability again, after iOS 4.1 initially took it away, with Geohot promising the jailbreak should work with the upcoming iOS 4.2 and future iOS releases.
