Well, it’s been a long time since we have heard anything new or impressive from iOS hacking community. It seems that everyone is waiting for the day when iOS 5 would become public and as per the rumors from BGR, the day is not too far. Finally, iOS 5 will come out of beta for download all over the world. Even if you are on a 2 years old iPhone 3GS, you would be able to update to the latest firmware, no wonder that not all features would be supported. There has always been frequent update in JailBreak tools like Redsn0w and Sn0wbreeze for iOS 5 betas. Though, the JailBreak is tethered right now except iPhone 3GS old bootrom.

Apparently, Apple has killed all those exploits which hackers had used previously to make JailBreak untethered. We can never forget the contribution of @i0n1c and @comex who found untether exploits and able to revive them more often. Undoubtedly, these hackers must be cooking something internally without exposing things anywhere. This is due to the fact that Apple would again patch the loophole once the exploit is made public. So, it is better to have it in the final version to target the wider audience rather than only developers. This silence should not be underestimated at all. The things will be normal once again.
