ETA for 5.1 JB : no clue! We’re going to set pieces of the puzzle together this week. We could have issues… Could be 1 month maybe 2… Maybe never… (!)
I know 1 month seems long, but it’s short to work on a project like this when it’s a hobby and you’ve other things to do as well.
One thing to remember is that these iOS hackers don’t get paid to develop jailbreaks for your iOS device. They hack into the iOS system and develop jailbreaks as a part of their “Hobby”. They have jobs and other stuff to take care of also, which makes it very hard for them to spend their valuable time on this venture.
Regardless of the fact they are pretty busy, much progress has been made to hack the firmware which is build by a working force of 1000s of dedicated Apple engineers. We’ll keep you posted when more progress is made.
