Every time Apple releases new iOS version, new iDevice, there is a game is on, hackers are finding kernel vulnerability for jailbreak, sounds like just hackers can do that kind of thing, things like codes, too hard for normal people, and now Pod2g post some methods to let every iDevice user can help finding next untethered jailbreak for iOS.
Pod2g updated his official blog with information about how users can help the development teams. The blog post provides some helpful and educational information about just what is actually required in order to produce a fully functional and distributable untethered jailbreak. A functioning jailbreak requires a code injection vector, a privilege escalation vulnerability, a kernel vulnerability and an untethering vulnerability, which in all honesty is probably a lot more work than most would have imagined. Pod2g is appealing for the help of the community in the hope that someone may be able to submit a bug that they have found in iOS 5.1 which could be used by the jailbreak dream team.
In order for the bug to be relevant and useful, he has also set out the following facts which should help users:
*Users should always test on the latest firmware available before submitting a crash report. At the time of writing this is iOS 5.1.
*It may seem like common sense, but crash reports should never be sent to Apple. These can be turned off by going to SETTINGS >> GENERAL >> ABOUT >> DIAGNOSTICS & USAGE and then making sure it is toggled to off.
*The development teams don’t require any type of crash. Users should always verify that any crash is of type SIGILL, SIGBUS or SIGSEGV before sending.
*Probably most importantly, the crash should be reproducible, meaning that a specific set of steps should be followed in order to repeat the crash.
The blog post from Pod2g is certainly encouraging and shows that they are doing everything possible to get an iOS 5.1 jailbreak in as short a time as possible, hopefully with the help of a galvanized community.
There is big chance that you can be the next untethered jailbreak hero.
