iOS 5.1.1 Jailbreak " Untethered " Will Be Released Over Two Weeks

Few days ago, Pod2g has released a demo video of untethered jailbreak for iPad 3 running on iOS 5.1. Two days later he announced that he successfully jailbroke his iPad 3 on iOS 5.1.1. Diffidently you are asking now why pod2g didn’t release his iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak so far? Well, in a blog post pod2g has replied the frequently asked questions regarding 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak. He announced that he will release 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak for all iOS devices " iPhone 4S, 4, 3GS, iPad 3, 2, 1, iPod touch 4G, 3G, Apple TV 2G " in a couple of weeks. Read More.

Here are some answers :
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. Expect a release in a couple of weeks.

Will it be compatible with my ?
It will be compatible with any device running iOS 5.1.1 except ATV3 (right now, may change in a near future, nobody knows). Yeah, I said _any_ , which means yeah .

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.
Update: Sad news, Pod2g has confirmed on his blog that iPod touch 3G and iPhone 3GS won’t be compatible with the upcoming jailbreak.
