Many of you, like me, are technology enthusiasts and have either bought an iPhone 5, or have updated your current iOS devices to iOS 6. Well, many of us are getting impatient for the iOS 6 jailbreak. It’s now been over 4 months since iOS 6 was released, and it looks like we’re pretty close to see an untethered jailbreak in the near future. Well-known developers such as Planetbeing have been updating users, which we have covered extensively in the past, and today we have some more good news. A new tweet suggests that he is making some progress again, this time with famous iOS security researcher Pod2g.
According to a new tweet by PlanetBeing, he spend last Friday with pod2G trying to work out an iOS 6 Jailbreak:
Yesterday, pod2g who was recently busy with his company 2G lab, replied in response to Planetbeing’s tweet, confirming that he is now also actively involved in the creation of an iOS 6 Untethered Jailbreak:
Earlier this month, Planetbeing confirmed that he has a working iOS 6 jailbreak running on his iPhone 5 but it could not be released to the public in its current state.
This week’s tweets suggess that all they are missing now is an initial code execution for a public jailbreak. Jailbreaking is a cat-and-mouse game, and over the last few years it has become increasingly difficult to perform, especially on newer devices. Pod2g’s active involvement now in developing iOS 6 jailbreak with Planetbeing and others is a great news for the community.
It is important to note here that iOS 6.1 release is just around the corner. The dev teams involved in iOS 6 jailbreak will likely wait for Apple to release iOS 6.1 before releasing any untether tool for newer devices.
With a proper, untethered jailbreak now on the horizon, your wait may be almost over. Meanwhile, we will be sure to keep you updated on any new developments, which will likely be many over the next few weeks.
