  • pod2g: There is No Jailbreak for iOS 6


    The popular iOS hacker, pod2g, who recently took the stage at JailbreakCon to discuss jailbreak techniques past and present along with the future of iOS jailbreaking revealed news that will disappoint many. After discussing the methods used in previous jailbreaks for iOS 4 and iOS 5, pod2g revealed that there is currently no working untethered jailbreak for iOS 6. This is in actuality news that turned out to be exactly opposite of what was expected to be announced at the recent JailbreakCon as many people had their hopes up high of pod2g and the Chronic Dev Team announcing an iOS 6 jailbreak.

    During his introduction to the iOS 6 portion of his talk, pod2g started by saying “Will I release the iOS 6 jailbreak today? No! Of course not!” Now this might leave many of you wondering what happened to the previous picture we saw of an iPhone 5 running Cydia. According to pod2g, what we saw was proof of what he called a “failbreak,” which he defined as being something for developers only with no possible way to release the method to the public in its current state. To put it into simpler terms, there is no iOS 6 jailbreak for regular iOS device owners at the moment.

    Although there is no concrete news of an iOS 6 jailbreak just yet, this doesn’t exactly mean we won’t be seeing one ever. It just means that we’ll need to be patient and should not expect it to be released for at least a few months. There still seems to be a fair share of work that the developers need to tackle regarding the issue. One thing that we do know is that the hackers that attended the JailbreakCon showed great enthusiasm for their work and they seem more motivated than ever. This should surely lead to some great things for the jailbreak community in the future.

      In my opinion this is the cat and mouse game full of smoke and mirrors. It kills me how talented these guys are at breaking these devises down to scrap and can come with an exploit during beta within a day but not on the final product. Come on! Who's the wait for a jailbreak really benefiting us or Apple?

      That's partly due to the fact the Beta's are built on the old software then on the final they add the baseband and that closes the hole! So where there is a hardware hole like a4 devices they can fall back on the tethered jailbreak but this has not been found for the new versions! Well that's my understanding!

      I think it's time people had to pay for the jailbreak!! That way the devs would be able to spend more time finding a way to jailbreak!

      I apologize for my statement earlier about pod2g not releasing the ios 5.1.1 JB when he was there when it was out, however there is still the fact that every time a new ios comes out he's the first one that says that a jailbreak wont be coming out, then a week later you see a video of his iphone with a jailbroken ios. I know it takes time, i know it's hard, but the reality is that he is working on a jailbreak, along with others, and i'm tired that he is always saying there won't be a jailbreak, he can just say that they are working on it and it will take more time than normal, and considering they now have 3 different iphone models, and 2 ipads i know it's hell to do, but at least they can be honest with us about it.

I love iOS 6 (even though it was kind of a disappointment feature wise), does everything it needs to and made my phone A LOT more faster. So point of my post is I can wait for a jailbreak, heck waited two months back when the iPhone 4 first came out.
      I disagree. I have scores of tweaks running and many different themes. Several iWidgets running at same time. And side by side comparisons of my my son's stock 4S and mine running a full theme yield zero difference in speed. It's about making sure the theme you have running has clean code. That can be accomplished if you use the right themer's stuff.

      Yes, our awesome devs are the rock stars of the iOS world. They're eccentric and like attention. It is what it is. Let them do their work a liberally donate to them. :-)

      iphone's with iOS6 will be crap for a very long time I guess! right now my ip5 is a total crap compared to my s3.

      Just be very careful you don't accidentally upgrade or get your phone into such an unstable state you have to restore. I'm 'very' careful for the few months after a new iOS is released and Apple's closed signing window on the previous OS.

      How freaking long do we have to wait for the jailbreak!? This sucks! They should be catering to me for free dammit! JK!

      And the window to downgrade has closed so I'm stuck without a jailbreak or downgrade.
      Even a tethered jailbreak would be great. Or a way to downgrade would be even better.
      Karma's a biotch ain't it!

      Who cares how long it takes to come out. It's all free anyways. These guys can say what they want to us it doesn't make a difference. I used to work on Android rooting solutions a while back and trust me It took some long nights of work. At the end it's all for free and if you wanna donate to those guys who are working hard to get it done than do so.

      So thanks dev team for all your hard work

      Does every one remember the poll pod2g put on his blog? Almost everyone voted for him to burn the exploits he gave us the option to save for IOS6. Sad part is we had a perfect exploit with 5.0.1. Instead everyone wanted him to burn them on 5.1.1.

      SAN FRANCISCO, JailbreakCon 2012 —Jailbreak hacker extraordinaire Cyril, or ”pod2g,” just took the stage to talk about jailbreak techniques and the future of iOS 6 jailbreaking. After giving a technical run-through of his past exploits in iOS 4 and 5, Cyril explained that there is no working untethered jailbreak for iOS 6.

      Considering that this is the world’s only jailbreak convention, many speculated that Cyril and the Chronic Dev Team would announce an iOS 6 jailbreak today, but that is not the case.

      Cyril opened the iOS 6 section of his talk with, “Will I release the iOS 6 jailbreak today? No! Of course not!”

      The iPhone 5 running Cydia we all saw several days ago is in fact a “failbreak,” as Cyril describes it. It’s for developers only, and there’s no way it could even be released to the public in its current state. To put it simply, there is no working iOS 6 jailbreak for regular users.

      That doesn’t mean that there won’t be an iOS 6 jailbreak eventually, but don’t expect one to be released for months. There’s still a lot of work that needs to be done, but the good news is that the hackers here at JailbreakCon seem more motivated than ever.

      Now you're going to need to be more specific. Please remind us all what you're talking about. I do not remember and 6.0 stuff talked about then. 6 wasn't even in beta then. What are you talking about?

      pod2g had put out a poll shortly before he released te iOS 5.1.x JB asking the public if the could wait for the next major update (6) or ruin it by using all the new exploits for a 5.1.1 JB.

      I will keep my 4S 5.1.1 until further notice I will wait for the JB (even tethered) before I get a 5 so please just do what you devs do
