iOS 5 Jailbroken

Image representing Apple as depicted in CrunchBaseiOS 5 just came out yesterday and only to developers but that did not stop super jailbreak MuscleNerd of the iPhone Dev team from successfully jailbraking it.


The jailbreak proof comes via MuscleNerd on Twitter who posted two images of an iPod touch 4G running a jailbroken version of the new iOS.

The first shows the Cydia store installed, the second shows root access has been gained.
MuscleNerd forms part of the iPhone Dev Team who are well-known for performing jailbreaks on Apple’s iOS versions. T

his latest jailbreak required the use of Geohot’s Limera1n exploit and unfortunately is tethered, meaning each reboot of your device requires connection to a PC in order to retain the jailbroken state.

The good news is that this method will work on the final version of iOS, so you can jailbreak the day iOS 5 is released this Fall.

Thanks to the work of lawyers at the Electronic Frontier Foundation, iPhone jailbreaking is exempt from the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.

The same statute has been invoked in several high-stakes jailbreaking lawsuits involving Sony's PlayStation game console, which enjoys no such exemption.
