    A loophole in Apple’s APTicket system allows it

    Now you can downgrade your iPad 2 and iPhone 4S to a 'jailbreakable' version of iOS

    As far as we know, there were no way to downgrade A5 devices to a previous iOS version to avoid any updates that ban jailbreak, until now.

    iH8sn0w, the well-known hacker, has found a loophole in Apple’s APTicket system that allowed him to downgrade his iPad 2 with iOS 5.1 to iOS 5.0.1 when restoring. The bug is reportedly works on all A5 devices (iPad 2 and iPhone 4S). This is a big step forward (or backward) in the scene panorama of iDevices.

    If you want to know, how to perform "the trick", head to the links below where you will found an step-by-step tutorial.

      Not really....

      While it is true that iH8Snow did tweet he found a loophole.... It has NOT been made public. The link in the post is for non-A5 devices. Thanks for the post, but please ensure you know what you posting :)
