iPhone 4S was released just two days ago, and also iOS 5 Golden Master version was seed by Apple for the developers only at the same date. So, now everyone who has a developers account at Apple’s site can now download the golden master version of iOS 5 and install on their device. Apple will be officially rolling out the iOS 5 on 12th October. iOS 5 can be installed to iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPod touch 3G, iPod touch 4G, iPad and iPad 2. As you might know that iPhone 4S will be releasing later this week too and it will come preloaded with iOS 5.
So, you may know that iOS 5 can be jailbroken now, as right after its developers release, iPhone Dev Team rolled out a new Redsn0w beta tool having version 0.9.9b3 which will easily recognize your iOS 5 version installed in your device and perform the jailbreak. Its just same as previously, whenever any of the beta of iOS 5 was rolled out, hackers were able to jailbreak it immediately. But still here we are only talking about a tethered jailbreak, yes, you can perform tethered jailbreaks on your device only. No hacker is able to develop a program which can perform an untethered jailbreak to the iOS 5. By now, untethered jailbreaks can be done to devices having iOS 4.3.3 version or below. On the other hand, you also cannot jailbreak Apple’s latest devices like iPad 2 and now upcoming iPhone 4S. Hacker have been trying to get a breakthrough but so far they couldn’t find a way.
