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'.
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.
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.
The infamous iPhone Dev Team has released an online jailbreak for Apple's iPhone 4, allowing users to install unofficial apps and take full control of their devices.
Famed iPhone hacker, George Hotz, has brought forth news of an untethered iPhone 3GS, iPod Touch 2nd Generation and iPod Touch 3rd Generation jailbreak, which will 'probably work on the iPad, too'.
