As we are desparately waiting for a tool to jailbreak iOS 8.3 and meanwhile an important update needs to be given to our visitors. Famous jailbreaker Stefan Esser also known as i0nic has released a video which shows that he has jailbroken iOS 8.4 beta 1. More news are still to come whether he will be able to release it publicly or not once final version is available.
Update: Taig can jailbreak up to iOS 8.2 beta versions. Although Apple has already released the 8.2 version for which we are waiting for the updated news from Taig or Pangu team. On the other hand if we talk about Pangu tool to jailbreak 8.3 or 8.2 still there is no hope and nothing new has come after the availability of jailbreak tool for 8.1 from Pangu team.
Immediately after the release of iOS 8.1.3 by Apple today on 28-January-2015, it was revealed that Apple has already patched the exploits that were used by TaiG jailbreak tool for 8.1.2 and now iOS 8.1.3 jailbreak is not available.
If you are a jailbreaker we recommend you to keep away from the upgradation to 8.1.3, otherwise if you are willing to try and download 8.1.3 you can check our pages for downloading iOS for iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch.
This could be a situation in which most of users have fallen especially when they have already upgraded to 8.1.3 using the OTA option. If you are looking for a tool to jailbreak 8.1.3 we recommend you to immediately downgrade from 8.1.3 to iOS 8.1.2 because Apple will stop signing the existing jailbreakable version after which you must be in desparate situation until the release of jailbreak for iOS 8.1.3.
Currently the working jailbreaks for iOS 8 are TaiG and Pangu and current versions are not compatible to jailbreak iOS 8.1.3. But we believe that the way teams has jailbroken previous version they will be able to jailbreak 8.1.3 as well and we expect a quick response after the stable release of iOS 8.1.3.
We on this page shall keep you updated about the next development related to the availability of jailbreak tool for iOS 8.1.3 or any other later versions.
As reported yesterday with reference to the pod2g’s tweet that he is running 5.1 untethered jailbreak on iPhone 4, there came the question whether the new jailbreak will be applicable for all devices or not. Even some people commented that 5.1 iPhone 4S tethered is enough and no need for untethered.
Pod2g has beautifully replied to these people by saying “Don’t forget there are Apple TV3, 4S, iPad2 and iPad3 users out there! and lot of these users got 5.1 out of the box” So this statement clearly reveals to us that the jailbreak for 5.1 which pod2g is going to release hopefully soon, will surely be compatible for all idevices currently available in the market.
The new 5.1 untethered jailbreak will be compatible with:
iPhone 4S 5.1
iPhone 4 5.1
iPhone 3Gs 5.1
iPad 3 5.1
iPad 2 5.1
iPad 1 5.1
ipod Touch 3G 5.1
iPod Touch 4G 5.1
If you are willing to jailbreak 5.1 iPhone 4S now you can follow this tutorial but remember this is a tethered jailbreak for iphone 4S.
Read below tweets and guess yourself.

Good news for everybody waiting for untethered 5.1 jailbreak. Pod2g has successfully achieved the 5.1 untethered jailbreak on iPhone 4. Earlier on 1st May 2012, pod2g announced that he has achieved the important exploits which will lead to untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.1. The poll he launched was also demanding that he should release 5.1 untethered as soon as possible.
Now after the latest tweet from pod2g everybody (at least me) must be anxious to get the public version of ios 5.1 untethered jailbreak software as soon as possible. Although the previous claims of untethered 5.1 jailbreak were not released for public use but this time I believe that pod2g will fulfill his promise as always and the latest 5.1 jailbreak which is untethered will be released for public. I believe pod2g will be making the public version so that the same can be released.
The latest tweet from pod2g is very clear and shows the confidence level of him since the iPhone 4 is running with 5.1 untethered jailbreak. I believe and hope that new 5.1 jailbreak will also compatible with iPhone 4S 5.1 untethered jailbreak and iPad 3 5.1 untethered jailbreak . Lets wait and see the actual stuff.
As most of you are aware that few days back pod2g started a poll to ask the jailbreak community whether he should jailbreak 5.1untethered or wait for release of iOS 6 and then put their efforts on iOS 6 jailbreak. The current status of poll demands that pod2g should release iOS 5.1 untethered jailbreak.
Now the latest news about 5.1 jailbreak reveals that pod2g is working hard and has got two new vulnerabilities. He states in his latest tweet “News: a productive week-end. Found 2 big vulnerabilities. 1 kernel land and 1 root land.“
Getting the exploits in kernal and root may lead a jailbreak independent of the firmware i.e. it will be compatible for all firmware. As mentioned in the last statements pod2g told that it may take a month or two to achieve the iOS 5.1 jailbreak. We hope the time comes as early as possible and we can enjoy the jailbreak tweaks and apps from Cydia.
If you want to be updated for all jailbreak news and updates I recommend to join my blog so that you never miss any important update on iOS jailbreak.
If you need to jailbreak iPhone 4S iOS 5.1 you can go to this jailbreak 5.1 tutorial, but remember this is tethered jailbreak which means you will need to boot tethered using computer if you need to restart your iPhone 4S, otherwise Safari and Cydia may not work.
As you are aware that Pod2g has tweeted recently that it may take more than one month or even two, to release the iOS 5.1 untethered jailbreak. In his tweet he told that he and others are working on 5.1 untethered Jailbreak, he mentioned in his tweet on 24-April-2012 “ETA for 5.1 JB: No Clue. We’r going to set pieces of the puzzle together this week. We could have issues… could be 1 month may be 2. It seems that it is becoming difficult for them to dedicate all their time for jailbreaking ios 5.1.
Pod2g has launched a poll to ask jailbreak community whether they should work on iOS 5.1 jailbreak, because it is believed that Apple will announce iOS 6 at WWDC 2012 in June 2012. So Pod2g may be thinking that instead of giving more time on iOS 5.1 jailbreak and getting it in next month it is better to wait till June 11-15 and if iOS 6.1 will be released then it is better to jailbreak iOS 6.
Since Pod2g cares for you and me so he decided to ask us and vote whether he should jailbreak 5.1 or should wait for iOS 6 jailbreak. Now it depends on our vote, I voted for 5.1 jailbreak. The figures till now are going in favor of ios 5.1 untethered jailbreak. I am sure he will respect the majority and whatever is the result after 5 days, lets see what is next.
There have been 89228 votes till I am writing this post and 57 % are in the favor of 5.1 jailbreak (watch below screen shot). So you can visit this site and vote for future of the jailbreak i.e. 5.1 or 6.
Thanks God the news about 5.1 jailbreak have been started after a long wait. Two days earlier pod2g tweeted that he has found an exploit for jailbreak, then chpwn tweeted that still it can take months, but now yesterday pod2g tweeted and announced that he has overcome the ASLR barrier that was preventing him from finalizing the iOS 5.1 jailbreak. You may not be aware of ASLR (Address Space Layout Randomization) which is a security measure introduced by Apple in recent versions of iOS, in order to make jailbreaking of IOS difficult. The target of jailbreakers for ASLR was to find a way to bypass the ASLR. Which pod2g has done now.
Based upon the above news I am sure that our beloved jailbreakers are very close to jailbreak 5.1 , although still they need to work on ETA. I think we should keep visiting their blogs and if possible make donations so that they can continue their 5.1 jailbreak process to make us happy.

After long wait at least there is a news about 5.1 untethered jailbreak for jailbreaknation or jailbreak community, today the famous jailbreaker Pod2G has given us a new hope that the work is on its way for the new 5.1 jailbreak which most probably will be untethered and for all existing devices, so that we shall be able to jailbreak 5.1 untethered. He says in his tweet:
News: we have all exploits required to do a new jailbreak. I’m working on bypassing ASLR at bootup
Just to remind you if you are an old jailbreaker for ios 5.0.1 jailbreak also Pod2G was the person in charge of finding the exploits that were later used in the 5.0.1 jailbreak successfully and most importantly the jailbreak was compatible for all devices at that time. I understand the iPad 3 users must be waiting for the iPad 3 jailbreak which will help them to truly enjoy the full potential of the A5 device.
I wish I could jailbreak 5.1 today but remember there is another tweet by chpwn where he says that it could take months even if exploit is found, and he is true because in the previous case also Absinthe jailbreak took weeks after news broke of exploits on Pod2G’s blog last year.
Here is screen shot of pod2g’s tweet:
Here is the tweet by Chpwn where he says a fact:
Remember: just because all the exploits are found doesn’t mean that a jailbreak exists — it’s likely months away from first working at all
I am as enthusiastic as you are for getting the new ios 5.1 jailbreak, so lets wait and pray for success of our beloved jailbreakers and don’t forget to donate on their sites if you can. Subscribe to my blog below and also like me on Facebook and share.
I know you know this but there are hundreds of iPhone, iPad and iPod users joining the jailbreak community on daily basis therefore I thought to write this short post to just give precise overview of common terms:
Difference between Tethered, Untethered and SemiTethered Jailbreak
Tethered Jailbreak - A tethered jailbreak means that each time you reboot your iDevice, the boot process will fail (you’ll get stuck on the Apple logo). To get around this you will need to plug your iDevice back into your computer and re-run the jailbreaking tool like Redsn0w and select “Justboot tethered”.
Untethered Jailbreak- An untethered jailbreak means that your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad will function as normal as it was before jailbreak.
SemiTethered Jailbreak - SemiTethered Jailbreak means that you still have a Tethered Jailbreak but if you want to reboot your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad, it will re-boot into a semi-functioning state where you can use apps such as Phone/SMS etc but not Cydia and Safari. To work with jailbroken apps you need to reboot tethered by using the jailbreak tool.
Difference between Stock firmware and Custom firmware
iOS Stock firmware – This firmware officially come from apple and may or may not update your iDevice baseband automatically.
iOS Custom firmware – This firmware do not include baseband on it. So you don’t have to worry by getting your baseband change/update. This is only possible by excluding the baseband using redsn0w or sn0wbreeze jailbreaking tools by selecting stock firmware to make a new custom firmware.
Difference Between Unlock and Jailbreak
Jailbreak - Allows you to install 3rd party applications, customize graphics, sounds, etc.
Unlock - Allows you to use the phone on networks other than AT&T or the one to whom you registered.
