i0n1c demoed the upcoming Untethered Jailbreak for iOS 5.1 on iPad 2

Apple released a new iOS Version few days back which made the Dream Team and other hackers in the Jailbreak community active. They all were relaxing after the hard work on iOS 5.0.1 Untethered Jailbreak for iPad 2 and iPhone 4S. They might also be waiting for the iOS 5.1 release by Apple to find the exploits in it and Jailbreak it. After the release of iOS 5.1, the well-known French Hacker, @Po2g came in action and announced on his Twitter that he need some help from the users regarding the Untethered Jailbreak for iOS 5.1. He needed the people to send him some specific crash reports from their iDevice.

The process is in progress by pod2g and his dream team when from nowhere a German hacker and Security researcher known as Stefan Esser (i0n1c) came up with few pictures on his Twitter account regarding the Jailbreak of iOS 5.1 on iPad 2. He showed up some Cydia pictures on his iPad 2 running iOS 5.1.

The name of i0n1c must be new to some of you, but he is not at all new in this field. He have worked on the iOS 4.3.x Untethered Jailbreak in past for iPhone 4 and below. This time he has come up with some pictures showing the jailbreak for iPad 2 and most probably iPhone 4S. He hasn’t shaded any light on the Jailbreak that will it be Untethered or tethered Jailbreak. We believe that the Jailbreak would be Untethered because iPad 2 and iPhone 4S got no Bootrom level exploit which make them compatible with a Tethered Jailbreak, so this jailbreak would be Untethered.

The version of Cydia is also new in the above shown picture which is 1.1.5. Till now it is not clear that we will get a new tool with the name of Antid0te or the Untethered Jailbreak will come with previous well known tools. In past i0n1c has teased about the Antid0te Tool also. The time will tell about the tool and the Untethered Jailbreak.

On the other hand @Pod2g and his team are busy in finding the exploit to Jailbreak iOS 5.1 on iPad 2 and iPhone 4S. He and i0n1c challenged each other regarding the Jailbreak that lets see who jailbreaks the iOS 5.1 first. I0n1c wins the challenge. Now we have to about The Dream Team that what they come up with. I0n1c doesn’t end the game here because he have vowed to Jailbreak The New iPad as soon as he gets his hands on to it. The jailbreak community is going on fire. This and the next week would be very crucial because one team and one man are working on the Untethered Jailbreak for iOS 5.1. If i0n1c PWNS The New iPad, that would be really epic and every one out there would be happy.

Let’s wait and see what these people come up with.
