Big day today! After downgrade, iOS 5.1.1 is untethered jailbroken successfully. Pod2g has confirmed that he has successfully jailbroken iPad 3 running iOS 5.1.1 using his existing untethered exploit for iOS 5.1 for all devices.
Yesterday, pod2g had tested successfully jailbreak on iPad 3 running iOS 5.1 and today a demo video was released proving the untethered nature of the jailbreak solution. As the jailbreak is working perfect without any issues on iOS 5.1.1, he seems that now the next step is to package the jailbreak exploit into an easy to use tool like Absinthe or resn0w or Corona.
OK, tested on an iPad 3,1 running 5.1.1. Jailbroken untethered. No issue.
