That's right! Apple released 5.0.1 today to bug fix the battery problems and to add multi-tasking gestures to the original iPad. So apparently there was battery problems on iOS 5, and I actually noticed that myself. On my iPod touch 3G, I noticed how fast the battery was draining. I guess that is the bug. Well anyways what the update brings:
- Fixes the battery problems
- Gives the original iPad multi-tasking gestures
- Resolves bugs with Documents in the Cloud
- Improves voice recognition for Australian users using dictation
Need some accessories for your iOS device?
Alright let's move on to the untethered jailbreak for iOS 5. A Twitter update comes from pod2g an iOS hacker, a discoverer of exploits, and a member of the Chronic Dev Team. He stated he has found a bug in iOS 5 that will allow for an untethered jailbreak.
Well anyways, there is no word on what the bug is, pod2g did promise to work hard on it. Hopefully it will be out soon. Currently as I said above there is only a semi-tethered jailbreak method for iOS 5 and it doesn't work with the iPad 2 or the iPhone 4s.
Anyways, as a safety precaution, please do not upgrade to iOS 5.0.1 if you want the untethered jailbreak. Apple may have patched the bugs.
