Apple has always been precautious towards their OS to avoid any types of hacking, and that’s why, the company has been updating its OS at regular interval of time. The famous Apple’s device hackers pod2g and the Chronic Dev Team have released the first untethered jailbreak for Apple’s iPhone 4S and iPad 2. Jailbreaking is the process to allow the users to root access the inbuilt OS. After Jailbreaking users can download additional applications, extensions and themes. Actually, Jailbreak opens the door to load unapproved applications and avail the phone on the others carriers which is limited by the original OS.
The hacker has named “Absinthe A5”to the new jailbreak for iPhone 4S and ipad 2 and it can be directly downloaded from the pod2g blogspot. Unfortunately, only the Mac users can be benefited from “Absinthe” but versions for Windows and Linux are planned to release soon.
The specialty of “Absinthe A5” jailbreak is untethered–means users would not need to plug the device into PC for rebooting unlike iPhone 3GS jailbreak. The hackers’ great endeavor has finally paid off and they succeeded to jailbreak iPhone and iPad after its 3 and 10 months release respectively.
The Chronic dev team has written details on Greenpoison blog, “The ridiculously complex combination of exploits-within-exploits that make this iOS jailbreak possible have consumed thousands of hours of brain-power & effort from a legion of world-renowned hackers, several of whom have been working diligently on this project since the dual-core A5 processor was unveiled by Apple last March. Ten months ago, I myself was live tweeting from a tediously long line at the nearest Apple retail store, where I anxiously waited to become one of the world’s first owners (& hackers) of the newly-released iPad 2.”
Anyway, the release of jailbreak is good hearsay for Apple’s users but not good for the company. The company has again failed to prevent its update from hackers.
