  • 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.

      I think so many people expect a jailbreak as soon as a new phone/iOS comes out
      We have to have patience and wait it out
      They have never let us down before and will hopefully give us a jailbreak for ip5/ios6
      So I'm saying keep up the good work on the future jailbreaks dev team

      Agree with ya there takes a lot of time I'm sure hacking all that code. They do have a life beside jail breaking iPhones.

I'm sorry but i don't really see why this guy has to be the final voice in jailbreaking, he might be the best, but certainly not the only one.
      Huh? Pod2g was certainly part of the 5.1.1 jailbreak. He was on stage when they announced it at HITB. Get your facts straight.

      I just realized I wouldnt want my ipad or iphone if the idevices cannot be jailbroken anymore. And that has nothing to do with paying like $980 for my ipad and like $700 for my iphone....

      Guess we will have to live with that. Now, the smart thing to expect is for someone who will develop a way to be able to downgrade to 5.1.1. I understand there will be a Redsn0w for this

      Title seems to be misleading. I have iOS 6 jailbroken on my A4 devices (iPod Touch and iPhone 4).

      Reading the article now...

      Lots of statements in the article need to be clarified. Like this one: "To put it into simpler terms, there is no iOS 6 jailbreak for regular iOS device owners at the moment. "

      The only bad thing really is I'm sure a lot of people upgraded to ios6 based on that screenshot of cydia.. in that regard I think pushing out a screenshot with no extra information was kind of a jerk move..

      I however.. have been in the community long enough to know better.. not everyone has been... for those who got excited and upgraded from the promise of those screenshots.. I am indeed sorry.. but now you know better

      Oh ya I'm thinking about downgrading back to 5.1.1 cause all I really wanted was the maps so what are the tweaks you use to enable those features if you could help me out?

      Last year I suffered 4 months with a stock 4S because musclenerd posted a video of an A5 failbreak!

      I'm not falling for this BS again with chpwns pic of A6 JB phone!

      I'm staying with my JB 4S 5.1.1 until pod2g starts talking positive about public release, for now his negative rants/tweets can be ignored.

      We go through the same thing every time a new IOS comes out "*****, moan, grumble and complain"

      Then when the Jailbreak does arrive "and it will" we all say great work guy keep up the good work !!!!

      Unless you can actually have a in put into finding a exploit ? Shut up and wait for the guys to work their magic.

      Just saying

      pod2g sold a few security holes that could of been used. For 25,000$$/50,000$$ a few months ago. Musclenerd called him on it/posted about it on Twitter.

      There is too much money involved to not jailbreak.

      Why is apple so against people using the firmware version they want. why are users forced to upgrade and not be able to go back if they so choose.

      So they can stop the jailbreak

      That is sad. Since the only A5 has a tethered jailbreak possible, it must be with the new A6. Here's hoping.

      I ask myself, why would anyone publish same day IOS6 came out, a pic of a jailbroken iphone 5 if the jailbreak will not be available for months and mislead a whole comunity to upgrade. Do they get paid for that? Hmmm
