  • That Was Fast... iPhone 5 Already Jailbroken


    The iPhone 5 just launched publicly today after having been pre-ordered to death over the past week. Not even 12 hours past the official launch, iOS hacker and developer Grant Paul (chpwn) has managed to jailbreak an iPhone 5. Even more awesome is that the iPhone 5 runs iOS 6, which is Apple’s latest mobile operating system.

    The screenshot above was Tweeted on Twitter by chpwn this evening and it shows Cydia at the bottom of the home screen. Chpwn has confirmed via Twitter that the iPhone 5 he took a screenshot of is indeed jailbroken and that the Cydia application was not just compiled on a developer iPhone 5. This is great news for the jailbreak community and has revealed that there is a light at the end of the dark tunnel.

    In case you doubt that the screenshot is of an iPhone 5, you can tell by the resolution of the screenshot, which is taller than that of the iPhone 4 or iPhone 4S. This allows for an extra row of application icons at the bottom of the screen, which the iPhone 5's larger four-inch display does indeed have.

    There is currently no estimated time of arrival on a jailbreak for the iPhone 5 and it probably won’t be out for a good amount of months – developing a jailbreak takes time and patience, as compatibility and hammering out bugs are always top priority before releasing any kind of solution to the general public.

    EDIT: Chpwn has just Tweeted Cydia's home page on the iPhone 5:


    EDIT #2: Chpwn has just Tweeted Cydia's home page on the iPhone 5 with the bottom row of text visible and the device visible:


    ModMyi will be keeping close tabs on the iPhone 5 jailbreak development, so stay tuned!

      The firmware came out 2 days ago. How much can you really be missing it? Maybe you shouldn't rush to update?

      That means that either they have the untethered JB done this fast and it just needs to have big fixes or that the iPhone 5 is so terrible that the Tether works.

      Iirc, musclenerd did the same thing with the 4s. I wouldn't be holding my breath.

      There was someone from the Dev Team that had a JB for the 4S on 5.0 within days of the release of the 4S. Same thing over and over. It'll be closer to Christmas before we have an untethered Jailbreak. I would love to be wrong. But I'm not on this one.. :-(

      And hey -- I wonder what Verizon is thinking by unlocking out of the box for iP5? They're losing a bunch of cash for overseas travelers. I mean it makes the case for switching to Verizon so much more compelling. LTE in my area w/Verizon but not w/AT&T and unlocked out of box??.. Please.... that's like a dream.. And people have been squawking for so long about Verizon being pricey-er - but with my 4 Smartphones and one regular phone on Verizon with a shared 6GB data plan between the 5 phones. It's $260/mo. That's the EXACT same thing I'm paying with AT&T for the 5 phones on their new Shared Data plans.. Since Verizon offers me LTE 'now' -- seems like a no-brainer to switch..

      But I digress....

      Looking forward for the jailbreak for iPhone 5 but I think this phone suck I wish I never traded my iPhone 4GS for the new one. It is slow as sh$t and real bad all around. The screen is better but it take 10 hours to download any application and I am using wifi to do so. Don't buy the new phone 5 and I love the iPhone I had all of them from the first one and I never been so mad as I am today

      Uhhh... You do realize that is a carrier coverage issue not iPhone 5 issue right?
      I'm downloading at 37mbps where as on the 4s it was 4.5-6mbps, I would call that damn better!

      Sorry to hear your experience with the new Iphone 5. Dont worry, if you're not happy with it you can always sell it at craigslist for a good price and get the 4S in return so you can be happy again.

      I too got the 4S and was looking forward on the new Iphone 5. I went to the apple store today after work and check out the Iphone 5 and was disappointed on its out come. So I wont be getting the Iphone 5 and will just keep using my 4S.

      Well I have to say I wish that was my case but I am using wifi to download and I also have Verizon LTE(4G) but since it is on wifi it does not matter what company carrier you have. I had every single iPhone and it is not my first rodeo. I love the iPhone but I have to say this one really sucks.

      I wish I was as smart as you, I always run to get the new one as soon as it comes out and I had the first Iphone, 2,3,4,4.5 and now the 5 but I was always so happy but I guess I will learn for next time. Oh and the battery is not 8 hours of talk time maybe 4 but I think 3 hours is more accurate.

      OMG, THIS IS THE FIRST TIME IN A WHILE THAT IN 24 HOURS THE SITE ACTUALLY HAD MORE THAN 1 MOD NEWS AT A TIME. But really great coverage of the iphone 5 event today, and congrats to Chpwn on JB the iphone 5 and ios 6 at the same time, hopefully the untethered JB will be out before the 5s comes out (that last part wasn't a joke, i am being serious).

      OK, it was tethered but it was still jailbroken. And Cydia was missing.
      I installed a few cydia apps but as they wern't IOS6 ready I went back to IOS5.1.1

      I thought as soon as Cydia was IOS6 ready then the jailbreak would be released?
      How did you went back to 5.1.1 on the iphone 4, i have my blobs but i don'thave a program to make the custom ISPW.

      Dude. Return it and get your 4S back if you don't like it. I really don't understand your whining... maybe there's a $30 restocking fee or something. Horrors.

      I'm pretty happy with my upgrade from 4s --> 5, but I will admit I'm a little worried about how long it will take to get a JB.

      You guys are ridiculous! Perhaps you wanted an even larger screen and NFC, but regardless this is still the best iPhone to date. The screen is larger and yet the iPhone is now thinner and lighter. The A6 is a phenomenal piece of hardware. AT&T is keeping my grandfathered unlimited and adding LTE at no additional charge. Verizon is unlocking all new iPhones. Jailbreak aside, is anyone honestly claiming the 4S is in any way superior to the iPhone 5?

      That was a developer account, and muscle nerd was up front about that. Grant said this is actually jail broken, ill take his word for it; he has earned it.

      If that was the case, it would be getting around quick, like the maps debacle. I believe literally zero you have to say. And there is no such thing as a 4gs. If you hate it so bad return it.
