iOS 5.1.1 Untethered Jailbreak Release Might Be At HITB SecConf In Amsterdam

By  at Monday, May 14, 2012  

We're all anxiously waiting for the release of iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. At this point in time, the jailbreak developers have given no particular time frame for the release. However earlier today they have teased the possibility of a release at HITB SecConf In Amsterdam.

iOS 5.1.1 firmware for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch was released earlier last week. This particular firmware update is a minor one and does not come with any new features, apart from the usual slew of performance improvements and security fixes. Older generation iOS devices can be jailbroken semi-untethered on iOS 5.1.1, but newer devices such as iPhone 4S, iPad 2 and New iPad can't be jailbroken at all on iOS 5.1.1.

Pod2g has written on his blog earlier today that the release might take a couple of weeks because the jailbreak, which has been confirmed to work, has to be packaged in a user friendly tool. Though he teased the possibility that iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak release might take place at HITB SecConf 2012 in Amsterdam. He wrote the following:
It's like something big's going to happen at HITB related to jailbreaking
No more to say ;-)
It's still time to register if you want to be there.I would be around, and lot of people of the iOS security field !
See you there.
The conference itself is merely a couple of weeks away from now. Jailbreaking royalty will be present at this conference so it really would make sense for a release to take place there. Pod2g will be presenting at the event, so will be  P0sixninja, Pimskeks, PlanetBeing and MuscleNerd.

iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak can been confirmed to work on iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPad 2, New iPad, iPod touch 4G and Apple TV 2G. Sadly the jailbreak is not working as yet on iPhone 3GS or iPod touch 3G. Here's to hoping that Pod2g release this jailbreak at HITB SecConf 2012.
