Well would you look at that. It seems that Apple wasn’t able to patch the hole from the iOS 4.3 making the recently announced iOS 5 still jailbrekable.
Using the iOS 5 available to developers, MuscleNerd of the iPhone Dev Team has posted pictures on his twitter account confirming the current jailbreak works fine on iOS 5, albeit a tethered one.
See the photo above? The new Reminders and Newsstand App is comfortable co-existing with Cydia. Of course, the iOS 5 is still in beta and Apple will still have time to figure out how to patch the OS before it becomes available this fall. But the real test for the jailbreak team is to crack the code on the iPad 2 which currently still has no jailbreak.
