Pod2g has answered some frequently asked questions on his blog about the upcoming iOS 5.1.1 jailbreak.
The poll about releasing now or waiting for 6.0 ended with a 64% / 33% to release ASAP. Where is the link? ETA? How much % done? etc.
As I said earlier in twitter, there’s still a lot to do to have a user friendly and well tested tool to install the jailbreak on end users devices. [ba-highlight color=”yellow”]Expect a release in a couple of weeks.[/ba-highlight]
Will it be compatible with my any random iOS device?
It will be compatible with any device running iOS 5.1.1
except iPod 3G, iPhone 3Gsand ATV3 (right now, may change in a near future, nobody knows).
Why is it so slow to release now that the iPad 3,1 has been demoed?
There are 16 different devices out there to work on and to test. It takes time.
May I be a beta tester?
No, sorry. Only really trusted people (that can be counted on one hand) could have access to the jailbreak. I don’t want any leak to happen.
What if I offer you 1,000,000$?
That doesn’t change a thing.
