Apple Patches Untethered Jailbreak Exploit Corona Uses In iOS 5.1 Beta 3

That cat and mouse game between iPhone hackers and Apple employees is getting a real war more than a game. After several months of hard work, the iPhone hacker pod2g with the help of the iPhone Dev Team and Chronic Dev Team could release iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak for all A4 devices. Although iPhone 4S and iPad 2 are not jailbroken yet, pod2g said that the A5 untethered is matter of days away.

Corona 5.0.1

For those of you who haven’t updated to iOS 5.0.1 yet, it’s time to do so.

Couple of days ago, Apple released iOS 5.1 beta 3 to developers. iOS 5.1 beta 3 revealed some new features and bug fixes. With the release of iOS 5.1 beta 3, it was unveiled that Siri is most probably coming to the iPad 3 and may be all iOS devices. iOS 5.1 beta 3 also brought back the 3G toggle on iPhone 4S.

However, iOS 5.1 beta 3 brings some bad news to the jailbreak community. According to iPhone developer Nadeem Ateyeh on Twitter (via @veeence), iOS 5.1 beta fixes the Corona iOS 5.1 untethered. According to the developer, iOS 5.1 is not susceptible to the Corona jailbreak since it fixes the bugs Corona uses to untether iOS 5.0.1.

Of course, everyone of you must update to iOS 5.0.1 right now or at least save iOS 5.0.1 SHSH blobs using latest TinyUmbrella release.
