    @pod2g has just tweeted that he has made a step in the Jailbreak for iPhone 4S and iPad 2 which he should hopefully release as soon as next week. This Untethered Jailbreak will be for iOS 5.0.1, so if you are on iOS 5.0, it is time to update before Apple decides to release iOS 5.1. Don't be surprised if iOS 5.1 patches the Jailbreak and then you are stuck forever or until a newer Jailbreak is released which might not even happen until iOS 6 or a later firmware. @pod2g tweeted the following:


    So it is safe to update to iOS 5.0.1 through iTunes, but make sure you aren't accidentally updating to iOS 5.1 which should be out soon! Full video and tutorial on how to untether your iPhone 4S & iPad 2 when it is released, until then, remember to subscribe!

    He tweeted what was quoted above. Hence the quotes. Pay attention.

    I was already on iOS 5.0.1 since it was made available for the public. I'm glad i did the right move, and now, patiently waiting for that JB thing to be release, the waiting was already getting too long. Many thanks to those JB gurus.

    Unfortunately no... JailbreakMe.com uses a PDF exploit through Safari that will most likely never be available again. The extent of it's use is up to iOS 4.3.3.

    Probably not. They said hopefully within a week. Just be patient.

    emphasis on the word hopefully, a release for this week was never guaranteed

    What do you have to do to get your 4s factory unlocked? I have the AT&T model.

    You either buy it factory unlocked or factory locked. You purchased yours factory locked it will always be factory lock until you finish the contract and your carrier factory unlock it for you. Now you can unlock your factory locked iPhone but till date there is no solution to it. Got to wait some more time.

    First off....is mine factory unlocked if I bought it from Apple.com (pre-launchday)? Secondly, is this JB going to let us do whatever we want to do with our iPhones...like add more widgets to our phone as shown in this video?



    ...or this



    ...or this



    I'd like to do add and perhaps even help create cool things to do or add to our iPhones...this is my first iPhone, and I was a Developer of custom ROMS for Android at one point, and would like to start in with the best of the best. The iPhone 4S. I do NOT want to go back to Android...I just would like all the goodies in these vids and more, and wondering if the above mentioned JB for iOS 5.0.1 will give me this....?
