Corona for A5-based iOS devices enroute

The iPhone Dev Team have announced that they are close to releasing the Corona A5 jailbreak for the iPhone 4S and iPad 2. The team says that it has overcome the technical hurdles associated with the underlying technique and that all that remains is bug fixes before a general release is made available. The release will work on iPhone 4S' running iOS 5.0 (9A334), 5.0.1 (9A405) and 5.0.1 (9A406), as well as the iPad 2 running iOS 5.01 (9A405).

The Dev Team have also promised that the GUI will remain streamlined and that they will give users access to command-line interface so that they can run their own scripts and further customize their devices. Ultimately, the Dev Team expects that the Corona jailbreak will be integrated into redsn0w, although there will be some changes to the way it has worked in the past.

The Dev Team have warned users ahead of installing the Corona release that if they are looking to achieve an eventual software-based carrier unlock, that they should stay at iOS 5.0. They also warn that as the Corona jailbreak has never been done before, that as such, users should back up all their content before attempting the install when it becomes available.
