One week after the Chronic Dev and iPhone Dev Team helped pod2g release his untethered iOS 5.0.1 jailbreak for A4 devices, the iPhone hacker tweeted that the A5 version is only a week away from a public release.
Pod2g enlisted the aid of the Chronic Dev team to release his A4 exploit so he could concentrate on A5 devices. The A4 untethered jailbreak was released on December 27 while iPhone 4S and iPad 2 owners were once again left out in the cold. That is all about to change in the near future according to pod2g.
You may have wondered why it's taking so long for the augmented reality application Nearest Tube to hit the App Store. This time the delay isn't really due to an Apple approval issue, it's just the small fact that the developers of augmented reality apps are using unpublished APIs (application programming interfaces).
That's right, Apple hasn't even released these development tools yet. The good news is that intrepid developers are soon to be vindicated by iPhone OS 3.1, which promises to include many new APIs that make augmented reality applications possible.
