Don’t update to iOS 5.1 if you want jailbreak!

Yesterday Apple announced long waited and rumored new iPad (3). Most rumors become reality and now iPad has 2048-by-1536-pixel resolution at 264 pixels per inch (ppi) display, 4G LTE connection, Apple A5X quad-core processor and finally decent 5 megapixel camera. Will write about this on another article but I have some more important things to announce.

Don't update to iOS 5.1

Don’t update to iOS 5.1!

Along the new iPad Apple also released iOS 5.1, it does means some few improvements like update for Siri and some other apps but most importantly there are no working jailbreak for A5 powered devices running iOS 5.1.

If you want to continue to use jailbroken iPhone or iPad I strongly recommend to keep away for this update while iOS hacking community is working hard to jailbreak latest iOS.

If you have iPhone 4S or iPad 2 or any other devices running previous version of iOS 5.0.1 you can still jailbreak it but keep away from iOS 5.1 for now!

We will let you know once untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.1 will be available. 

Update (1): Still no untethered jailbreak available for iPhone 4S but there is some progress made in this area so we can expect jailbreak sometime soon.

    Hi first time user thinking about jail breaking my iPhone. If I have already updated to ios 5.1, can I restore to factory settings and then jailbreak from there??

      Factory reset will bring you back to clean iOS 5.1 version not back to 5.0.1. So it means that you are currently stuck and can’t jailbreak your iPhone 4S.
      If you have iPhone 4 or even older iPhone then you can downgrade your phone’s iOS and jailbreak it but if you have iPhone 4S then you are stuck for now.

      Your phone is perfectly usable without jailbreak, jailbreak is just for getting additional options, customization and applications. 

      Jailbreak for iOS 5.1 will be available within few weeks as there are already some exploits found and developers are working to create applications for regular users.

    I wonder if this jailbreak will be released before half-life 3.
