pod2g Resolves Cache Troubles With the iPhone 4S Untethered Jailbreak


Yesterday, we told you that pod2g discovered that his untethered jailbreak failed on the iPhone 4S because of multicore cache management. Today, we learn that he has resolved the cache troubles with the iPhone 4S untethered jailbreak, according to a new progress update.


OK, figured it out, the A5 cache is not a problem anymore. I sorted it out by doing the untether in a single thread and by flushing all the dcache then all the icache in a row at a strategical point of the process. It took me like a hundred of tests to find the key. Hard for the nerves.

For the tech guys, here is a link explaining issues related to self modifying code ( or code patching ) on the ARM platform : http://blogs.arm.com/software-enablemen … ying-code/

Another news : I discussed with @saurik today about the launchd boot process, and he’s found one missing piece of the puzzle I needed to have a perfectly stable jailbreak. He’s definitly one of the best iOS gurus out there. Thank you saurik!
