The hacker also shared a link on his blog - a tweet from the Chronic Dev Team's official Twitter account. Incidentally, the team will be the creators of the untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.1.1. that incorporates pod2g's latest exploits.

Pod2g earlier reported the tool was expected to be available in two weeks. However, the conference will be held in less than two weeks and there is a possibility we might see the launch of the next untethered jailbreak, considering the rapid progress made by pod2g and his Dream Team of hackers.

The conference's last day is 25 May and anything could happen between now and then.
