Here is his blog post update:
“Here are some news about the current work on the A5 research. @planetbeing escaped from the sandbox with the help of @saurik. Thanks to their awesome work, there should be nothing left blocking for the A5 jailbreak. Now it should be a matter of days. Still no precise ETA of course. We all want this to be finished ASAP, we’re getting tired!”
The iPad 2 and iPhone 4S jailbreaks will be finished ASAP, which makes me think that redsn0w will be updated to jailbreak the iPad 2. It looks like my iPad 2 will finally be jailbroken again after I updated to iOS 5.0.1. Be sure to get updated and save SHSH blobs with TinyUmbrella, the iOS 5.0.1 jailbreak for the iPad 2 and iPhone 4S is nearly here!
