Two Big Vulnerabilities Found For iOS 5.1 Jailbreak

After a short period of 11 days, we’ve got another update regarding the status of iOS 5.1 jailbreak . Pod2g just tweeted that he had “a productive weekend,” reportedly finding “2 big vulnerabilities. 1 kernel land and 1 root land.” 
 This report also comes just after 5 days after the renowned hacker posted a poll regarding the jailbreak release of iOS 5.1 jailbreak. Just to refresh your memory, he posed the question that whether he should pay full attention towards iOS 5.1 jailbreak or iOS 6 jailbreak.
Never the less, the hacker still spent his weekend finding more exploits for iOS 5.1 jailbreak in which he was quite successful. Talking about that poll, users still have 2 days to voice their opinions, the current results are in favor of iOS 5.1 jailbreak as  84,269 (or 61% of the voters) believe that hackers should continue work on iOS 5.1.
Responding to this poll is a vital phase of jailbreak development even though the results at the moment reveals everything. While there’s still no word on any kind of ETA, the hacker seems to be making considerable amount of progress regarding the jailbreak of iOS 5.1.
Since jailbreak users are afraid that jailbreaking iOS 6 might be a huge challenge and since pod2g has already made some progress regarding the iOs 5.1 jailbreak, the majority of users voted in favor of iOS 5.1 jailbreak, which makes one thing quite certain, that the hacker will continue working on iOS 5.1 jailbreak. We’ll keep you posted when we have more update on the matter.
