Recently, hacker iH8Sn0w tweeted out
So looks like all my A5(X) devices are fully untethered and jailbroken for life now. :)

Stating that is new exploit would make all A5(X) devices jailbreakable permanently. This is similar to GeoHot’s limera1n exploit which was used even years after it was discovered to bring tethered jailbreaks to A4 devices. The difference is that the new exploit is not the same as a bootrom exploit although iH8sn0w states that it will lead to continuous untethered jailbreaks. All the keys can be found here, for anyone that knows how to utilize them.
A5 Devices Include: iPhone 4S, iPad 2, iPod touch 5G,, and iPad mini
A5X Devices Include: iPad third gen
While these are not the newest devices it sure will be nice to have our older phones and tablets always jailbreak accessible.
