Beside Redsn0w and Sn0wbreeze, another tool has come into existence from a Unix hacker called Acidra1n. This tool is not different from those which are present at the moment. Instead, it is yet another alternative for people who want to tether JailBreak their iDevice on iOS 5.0/iOS 5.0.1. Till now, iPad 2 is not supported because it uses the A5 chip where Geohot’s bootrom exploit fails. Only solution for iPhone 4S or iPad 2 is a userland based JailBreak.
It is expected that Acidra1n has great future in terms of the functionality and we will be able to see it growing really soon. Unfortunately, the tool is supported for Mac OS X Lion only. Hopefully, it would work on Mac OS X Snow Leopard as well. Interestingly, hacking community is on full swing today. At first, we saw a crash reporter tool from Chonic DevTeam and then iPhone 4S unlock news from MuscleNerd. And now, another JailBreak tool from an another rising hacker.
You can download Acidra1n from here. If you are desperately in need of an iOS 5 untethered JailBreak, you can checkout the semi-tethered JailBreak which is actually useful at the time of urgency, that is, when you don’t have a Mac/PC around to boot tethered. Options such as JailBreak, Tethered boot, Pwned DFU and exit recovery have been included. We are hoping for an option to make custom firmware and support for other platform in near future. What do you say?
