iOS 5 is Jailbreakable

According to a tweet posted by @MuscleNerd, a member of the iPhone Dev-Team, which has authored many jailbreak-related tools and tutorials, iOS 5′s new automatic over-the-air updates shouldn’t make jailbreaking harder.

The tweet, posted just a few hours ago, reads:
iOS 5 Jailbreak

over-the-air delta updates of iOS should be fine for JBers (even if Apple didn’t let you disable them, the JB itself can)

Concerns arose, since automatic over-the-air updates, one of the flagship features of iOS 5, could possibly break jailbreaks whenever a new version of the firmware is released, essentially making a permanent and stable jailbreak unfeasible. While that might be true, a reliable jailbreak would also be able to disable automatic updating altogether.

On the other side of the coin ,P0sixninja who is a member of the Chronic-Dev Team and to him we owe the latest jailbreak tool for the IOS 4.3, 4.2 developed by this team (Greenpois0n and higher).A few moments ago, via Twitter, the same hacker has announced that on 5 iOS is certainly possible to run the jailbreak!

The certainty comes from the fact that the exploit used by hackers to jailbreak iOS 4.3 and 4.2 are based on iOS bootrom (hardware) rather than part of a software operating system.
