While we’re fending off the crowds at CES, iPhone 4S and iPad 2 owners could be in for their own version of an exciting week. According to pod2g, the man who brought you an untethered jailbreak for the iPhone 4 and original iPad running iOS 5.0.1, an updated A5-compatible version could come as early as next week.

In a tweet earlier, he claims that he “made a step today for the A5 [devices]. With some luck we could expect a release in a week.”

The iPad 2 received an untethered jailbreak with iOS 4.3.3, but that was the last time users had any such love. Until now, the only iOS 5.0.1 jailbreaks for A5 devices have been tethered, meaning the device would have to be re-broken every time it rebooted. Untethered removes the stress of needing to be near a computer in case your iPhone or iPad needs a reboot.

We’ll bring you more as it comes, even if we’re in the middle of the crowds at CES.

    There is a tethered a5 jailbreak on 5.0.1? I don’t think so

  • Pukka

    There is no tethered jailbreak for a5 devices. Article is incorrect.

  • NW

    There is NO jailbreak solution (tethered or untethered) for iOS 5.0.1 for A5 devices at the moment! Please correct your article!

      Actually their is. If you open your eyes & search on Google you will see the jailbreak team did say their is one & its coming out. I would suggest you do not give false info.

      @Dimitri, I suggest you read the article again. It wasn’t talking about what’s coming out. It stated that “until now, the only iOS 5.0.1 jailbreaks for A5 devices have been tethered”, which is a false statement, since there isn’t a jailbreak solution out for 5.0.1 yet! And those advertising jailbreaks for A5 devices on 5.0.1 are just stealing your money, because they are fakes.
