MuscleNerd: Untethered FastRa1n iOS 5 Jailbreak a Scam

Advertisement

Jailbreaks for iOS 5 are getting better and better, with the latest redsn0w now able to work its magic on your iPhone over twice as quickly. Don’t let your expectations run away with you though, as we’re still in tethered jailbreak land, with no ETA on an untethered option. That’s not stopping unscrupulous souls from fleecing a little cash off the gullible, causing the iPhone Dev Team’s MuscleNerd to speak out in warning against one such scam tool.

MuscleNerd sent out a tweet in regards to claims that FastRa1n can install an untethered jailbreak on iOS 5 devices. Anyone paying for access to the supposed tool is just wasting their money, according to him, and the iPhone Dev Team will be confirming the presence of an actual iOS 5 untethered jailbreak if and when one arises. They’re obviously working hard on such an effort, and all us non-devs should just relax and enjoy our tethered jailbreak for the time being.
