Good news to everyone who accidentally updated their iPad 2 or iPhone 4S losing the jailbreak functionality and chance to get back to previous iOS version. iOS developers have found the way around Apple’s security implemented in iOS 5.1 that banned any possibility to downgrade iOS till now.
iH8sn0w, the well-known iOS developer who become famous with Sn0wbreeze, iFaith, iReb and f0recast is responsible for this hack. While this hack is not the big deal for many iPhone and iPad users it’s very important for A5 processor owners who accidentally have updated their software and now they are stuck with Apple protected device without chance to jailbreak it again.
iH8sn0w didn’t name the exact release date for this new tool but we can be sure that we will see it within next few weeks.
This downgrade is big step forward to get and proper jailbreak for iOS 5.1 powered devices as usually jailbreaks are based on downgrading and upgrading process so the hack is injected during this process. Now when the downgrade is possible there is higher chance that iOS developers will find the way to jailbreak any iPhone, iPad and iPod again running the latest iOS version.
Will keep you informed when this downgrade from iOS 5.1 to iOS 5.0.1 will be available to public and of course I will write a detailed tutorial.
