The weekend fever started with some more great news from the Jailbreaking community. We all know that, @pod2g is actively working for the untethered Jailbreak for iPhone 4S, iPad 3, iPad 2, iPhone 4 and older Devices. Few days back, @pod2g announced that the Untethered Jailbreak wouldn’t be supporting iPhone 3GS and iPod 3G on iOS 5.1.1 because the exploit they founded wasn’t working for these two devices. This was strange news for the users waiting for the untethered jailbreak owning these devices. They might have been hurt a little bit or might have lost the hope of Jailbreak on later iOS version of iOS 5.1.1.
Pod2g, today Tweeted on his Twitter account that he has found another way by which the iPhone 3GS and iPod 3G can be Untethered jailbroken. The testing is remaining. This was a great news and a new hope for people owing an iPhone 3GS and iPod 3G. He didn’t only announced about the support of the Untethered Jailbreak for iPhone 3GS and iPod 3G, he also updated his blog with the following iDevices on which the testing is done and they are ready to go.
Good news. We’ve found a way through for iPod 3G and iPhone 3Gs users. Upcoming jailbreak will be compatible.

Here is the list of devices that are known to work for sure:
· iPhone 4
- iPhone 4S
- iPad 1
- iPad 2 Wifi
- iPad 3 Wifi
- iPad 3 CDMA
- iPod 3G
- iPod 4G
The remaining iDevices are:
Remains to test (but that should work):
- iPhone 3Gs
- iPad 2 GSM
- iPad 2 CDMA
- iPad 2 Wifi, R2
- iPad 3 Global
- AppleTV 2
Above are the iDevices that are remaining for testing. The testing of Untethered Jailbreak on iOS 5.1.1 is yet to be done on them. Though @pod2g expects that the Untethered Jailbreak should work on them also.
The above list contains iPad 2 WIFI-R2 that is the new version of the iPad 2 released by Apple. This new version might got some changes in it, but we hope that there are no major changes done in the hardware of this new iPad 2 WIFI R2.
Still the Untethered Jailbreak needs to be tested thoroughly, so when it lands, it should be safe enough to work. Where the Untethered Jailbreak is on the verge, the support for Apple TV 3 wont be included in this release of the Untethered Jailbreak.
Here is the list of devices that won’t be supported:
- AppleTV 3
There is no such good reason told by the hackers for dropping out the Apple TV 3 support. We think that the hardware is new of the Apple TV 3, so it would take time to hack into it. Lets not loose our hope into this Jailbreaking community because anything is possible.
