Rejoice time for iPad 3, iPhone 4S and iPad 2 users waiting for the untethered jailbreak. Hacker Pod2g has confirmed via twitter that they have now all the exploits required for the untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.1. He is working on bypassing the ASLR at bootup that will complete the work related to jailbreak. This does not mean that the jailbreak will be released in few days, as then they will be testing the jailbreak to package and release it for public, which would possible take some more time.
Last month, Pod2g has updated that they have some missing pieces for the userland jailbreak for iOS 5.1 and he was working dedicatedly on it. He said it will take few weeks to bridge the gap and package the full blown exploit into any tool like Absinthe or redsn0w to release. And now, after few weeks, pod2g has confirmed of all pieces and holes in place for the jailbreak, which brings them very much closer to the untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.1.
News: we have all exploits required to do a new jailbreak. I’m working on bypassing ASLR at bootup.

With all this information, it seems that the untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.1 for A5 and A5X devices will be based on userland exploits and will not be bootrom to permanently jailbreak the devices. Once the final bypassing is done by pod2g, he will be testing the jailbreak to package and release.
However, there were already four exploits discovered in zero day of the new iPad 3 release, but still no other hacker have claimed to release the jailbreak yet. Pod2g was the one who also gave us exploit to jailbreak iPhone 4S and iPad 2 which was then packaged into Corona and Absinthe.
Like all his earlier promises, this time also it seems that iOS 5.1 jailbreak for iPhone 4S, iPad 2 and iPad 3 is quite close. We will keep you updated on all the releases and details of the jailbreak and unlock, stay tuned with us on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+.
