Immediately after the release of iOS 5.1 there were claims that it has been jailbroken for A5 devices i.e. iPad 2, iPhone 4S and iPad3, or is very close to be jailbroken by three different sources, i0n1c, chpwn and p0sixninja but unfortunately we were unable to get iOS 5.1 untethered jailbreak till today and none was released for public, the only available jailbreak is RedSn0w 0.9.10b6 ios 5.1jailbreak, which is tethered and not compatible with all devices. Latest news came from Pod2G of Chronic dev team that they are at work on a new jailbreak and it may take weeks.I thought to update you so that you are aware that there is some work going on for iOS 5.1 untethered jailbreak below are the tweets from pod2g.
Here comes another big good news for jailbreak community that chpwn and Phoenixdev has jailbroken the new ipad 3 using a third method. After release of iPad 3 yesterday, there are news coming from different sources about iPad 3 jailbreak, i0n1c and iPhone Dev team have already announced that they have already done jailbreak of iPad 3 on ios 5.1. i0n1c posted some pictures followed by the video of ipad 3 running Cydia successfully and also he demonstrated in the video that this is untethered ios 5.1 jailbreak.
Despite all these good news we are unable to get the actual ios 5.1 jailbreak software download and I know many of you are waiting for it curiously. You can join my blog below so that you can be informed as soon as the ios 5.1 jailbreak software is available for download.
Below is the tweet of Grant Paul (Chpwn) and also pictures given by him.

i0n1c has today uploaded a video on you tube showing that his ipad 3 is running Cydia successfully, that means he has untethered ipad 3 jailbreak which is untethered. Till now he has not released the ios 5.1 jailbreak software but we hope very soon he will make us happy by providing the download link for 5.1 jailbreak for ipad 3. Watch below video and subscribe to my blog so that I can update you as soon as the new ipad 3 jailbreak is available. Pod2g is also working to get untethered ios 5.1 jailbreak lets see who releases the first.
As published on Apple’s website the new iPad 3 will arrive at 8:00 am on March 16th Friday through Apple retail stores and Apple online stores in US, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore, Switzerland and the UK; along with Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands. Also some third party retailers such as Wal Mart has opened their doors to much excited ipad 3 lovers.
For ipad 3 ios 5.1 jailbreak there is a good news that Dev Team has released a blog post that they will be hopefully able to get new ipad 3 jailbroken in near future because the method they used to jailbreak iPad 2 still works even in ios 5.1. We are very thankful to Dev team and all who are facilitating us with jailbreaks and hope to get new ipad 3 jailbreak ios 5.1. Below are some paragraphs from their blog post:
There are a few bits of good news already.
We can confirm that the method used to jailbreak the iPad 2 4 months ago still works even in 5.1. That means we’ll at least be able to get our foot in the door to get the required kernel dumps on the iPad3. That’s an important step, but by no means is it the end of the story.
Those of you following @i0n1c may have noticed he’s already tweeted pictures of his iPad2 jailbroken at 5.1. As far as we know, he’s using a method completely unrelated to the one mentioned above. That would be great news!
We’ve also seen bits and pieces of an entirely different jailbreak method being investigated by someone close to the Cydia repo scene.
The second paragraph says they are investigating another jailbreak similar to Cydia repo which I guess is the ios 5.1 jailbreak by i0n1c that I reported earlier today in one of my post that i0n1c has found a completely different method for iPad 2 ios 5.1 jailbreak.
