A renowned iOS hacker had gathered the Dream Team to assist him on this jailbreak which is for both iPhone 4s and iPad 2. Also he has other hackers  like planetbeing, MuscleNerd, and p0sixnija are also involved.
Pod2g mentions on his blog:

“Here are some news about the current work on the A5 research. @planetbeing escaped from the sandbox with the help of @saurik. Thanks to their awesome work, there should be nothing left blocking for the A5 jailbreak. Now it should be a matter of days. Still no precise ETA of course. We all want this to be finished ASAP, we’re getting tired!”

Siri Successfully Ported To iPhone 4 and iPad Without Infringement

Many of the older version iPhone and iPad users who were not able to get their hands on the new phone were disappointed because of the fact that they were not able to use the new personal assistant Siri which came with the new iPhone 4S.

For such users who have previous version of the iPhone and have jailbroken them can make use of this new tool developed by “chpwn” which will  enable iPhone 4 users to run Apple’s personal assistant application, Siri, on their handset. A few days back “chpwn” broke this news on  his blog where he mentions of a tool named “Spire” which enables to port Siri on iPhone 4 without any copyright issues.

Excerpts from chpwn:

Spire is my (along with Ryan Petrich) new tool for installing Siri on previously unsupported, but jailbroken, devices. Spire is a small download, but while installing it will download Siri itself (directly from Apple). However, Spire is not a complete solution. Apple still requires authorization to use Siri, so information from an iPhone 4S is still required. To insert this information, Spire allows you to enter your own proxy server address. Spire uses a new method to obtain the files necessary for Siri, so it doesn’t have the copyright issues encountered by previous attempts. Similarly, rather than directing all traffic through a specific proxy server (and the associated privacy issues), Spire allows you to specify your own proxy server.

iPhone users who want to get their hands on this new tool can acquire it on Cydia. It will take about 100MB so hurry!!

To install Siri on your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad follow these simple steps:

xCon Allows To Evade Jailbreak Detection by Apps On iPhone

Jailbreaking iPhone isn’t illegal, but its not that Apple has to like it. They probably hate it the most  and thus with each update they make it more and more difficult for the talented community to release a successfuljailbreaking tool.One tool Apple has developed to hamper  jailbreak users is to create apps that recognize a modified handset when installed via iTunes. Upon opening such apps, an alert will appear on your screen:

“Jailbreak detected. App cannot run on a jailbroken device.”

The user will then have no choice but to either restore their device to a non-jailbroken state or go without using the specific app.

Luckily, a recent tweak submitted to Cydia by the name of xCon attempts to bypass the issue. The tweak is free of charge but allows the workaround on only a few apps.

The short list currently supports the following applications:

[How To] Jailbreak iOS 5.0.1 / 5.0 On iPhone 4, 3GS, iPad And iPod Touch 4G With Ac1dSn0w Beta 1

Today is the day of jailbreaking tools. With the news of release of C-Dev reporter by Chronic Dev Team which will send crash reports to Chronic Dev Team servers (instead of Apple’s) so they can find exploits, now that news has been followed up by the news of yet another jailbreaking tool. It’s called Ac1dSn0w and it jailbreaks iOS 5/iOS 5.0.1 tethered on OS X Snow Leopard and Lion.

Although, Ac1dSn0w isn’t really different from established tools like Redsn0w and Sn0wbreeze but it is a promising alternative with its features like remote jailbreaking, custom firmware creation and iRecovery Remote. Also, it is currently available for OS X only.

From PwnDevTeam:

I’m pleased to announce that we’ve just released Beta 1 of Ac1dSn0w for Mac OS X Lion (should alsowork on Snow Leopard). Ac1dSn0w allows you to jailbreak your iDevice tethered.  It also provides features like Tethered Boot, Pwned DFU, and Exit Recovery to get your device out of Recovery Loop.It currently supports iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPod touch 4G and original iPad on iOS 5 and iOS 5.0.1 for tethered jailbreak. Once you go through the steps, your device will be jailbroken tethered, just like redsn0w or sn0wbreeze. iPad 2 and iPhone 4S are NOT supported.

Step 1: Download Ac1dSn0w [Google Docs Link] and launch it.

Chronic Dev Team Unveils C-Dev Reporter

Chronic Dev Team – the people behind the GreenPoison jailbreaking tool which was used to jailbreakiOS 4.2.1  have announced and released an all new program which permits jailbreaking enthusiasts to send their iOS device crash reports directly to Chronic Dev Team instead of Apple.

News of this new program comes straight from GreenPois0n blog in the form of a blog post in which iPhone hacker Joshua p0sixninja Hill gives an update on iOS 5 jailbreak, and also mentions how Apple finds exploits in iOS and iOS devices, how some of their critical userland exploits were patched as well as how you can now help the  jailbreaking communityin finding exploits so that the long-waiting untethered iOS 5 jailbreak for all devices, including iPad 2 and iPhone 4S, can come sooner rather than later.

The program – which is called C-Dev Reporter - basically sends all crash reports on your device to private, secure Chronic Dev Team servers instead of Apple. These reports are then studied by members of the team and the knowledge they gain is then used to find exploits which eventually will lead to a proper, untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.

The program also disables iTunes’ ability to send crash reports to Apple, so that they would be unable to patch these exploits.
