Good news. We’ve found a way through for iPod 3G and iPhone 3Gs users. Upcoming jailbreak will be compatible.

A few days ago we reported that infamous jailbreak hacker, pod2g, had found a way to jailbreak the latest versions of iOS (5.1.1) on pretty much all devices. The only devices that weren’t working at the time included the Apple TV 3, 3rd-gen iPod Touch and iPhone 3GS.
Today we can thankfully scratch the latter two off the list. A tweet made earlier today by pod2g reveals that the iOS hacker has found a method to get the 3rd-gen iPod Touch and iPhone 3GS jailbreak compatible on iOS 5.1.1. This should make a lot of people who either purposefully or accidentally updated their devices and whom don’t want to have to downgrade to re-live the jailbreak experience.
All that said, the Apple TV 3 is still on the “not supported” list. Hopefully pod2g’s recent success can translate to cracking the final holdout in Apple’s iOS lineup so that everyone can jailbreak on the latest and greatest OS.
(Oh, and you can stop asking for ETAs. It’ll be done when it’s done. Give the guy a break.)
