In recent months we have all complained of lack of a jailbreak solution for iOS 6, iPhone 5, iPad Mini, iPad 4, etc., and we blamed the hackers that have developed it. Although there were people who said that the development process is difficult and hackers are working hard, in fact they have taken a long vacation and have just returned to work.
Only last week Planetbeing and Pod2G along with several others lesser-known hackers have resumed the search for vulnerabilities in iOS, and found new vulnerabilities that will help them for a public launch.
Now hackers have returned to work, given that in just 5 days iOS 6.1 beta 4 will expire and there is a good chance that iOS 6.1 finally arrive in iTunes, and users will be happy after waiting for 4 months. Although the development work for these jailbreak solutions have appreciated donations to be made, I think in the future would not hurt to know whether or not someone is working to develop a jailbreak solutions since last year few have done it and many were induced the idea that the solution is in development, when in fact no such thing happens.
While people are anxious to get their hands on a jailbreak for their iPhone 5, it seems that there are already hackers that have managed to get their hands on untethered jailbreak for iOS 6.0.2 and for the iPhone 5. planetbeing, who is a member of the iPhone Dev Team has mentioned on Reddit that he already has an untethered jailbreak for iOS 6.0.2 for the iPhone 5.
Those that have upgraded their iOS devices to iOS 6 may have some problems especially if they are used to jailbreaking their devices. Up until now, there has yet to be a working untethered jailbreak for these devices. This also means that the iOS 6 is one of the longest releases without a working jailbreak. Cyril or better known as pod2g, was interviewed by Sebastian Page and here are some of his words on the jailbreaking scene at the moment.
The iPhone 5 is the longest iPhone without a jailbreak solution since its launch. As of date, there is no way to get an untethered jailbreak for the iPhone. This isn’t because nobody is doing it. In fact, a lot of hackers have been playing around day and night for a proper jailbreak for the iPhone 5. The reason why no one got it right yet is simply because of the security measures implemented on the iPhone 5 that makes it very hard to jailbreak.
