  • Pod2g and Planetbeing Announce Progress On iOS 6 Untethered Jailbreak


    iOS 6 still lacks an untethered jailbreak solution on newer iOS devices, although users of older limera1n devices can experience a tethered jailbreak on iOS 6 thanks to a bootrom exploit and old bootrom iPhone 3GS models do have an untethered jailbreak on iOS 6.

    Earlier in January, iOS hacker planetbeing shared on Reddit that he had an untethered iOS 6 jailbreak running on his iOS 6.0.2 iPhone 5, however he wasn’t going to release it just yet because it contained a valuable exploit that he wanted to save and iOS 6.1 is just on the horizon and would likely break a small part of the jailbreak.

    The good news is that last night hacker planetbeing hinted on Twitter that progress has been made with iOS hacker pod2g towards the untethered jailbreak for iOS 6. Pod2g responded about 10 hours later sharing that they had found two new vulnerabilities in one day, which is excellent progress. The vulnerabilities are essential for the jailbreaking process. On the other hand, pod2g shares that the "initial code execution for a public jailbreak" is still missing.

    Pod2g and planetbeing were huge players in the release of the iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak, so we trust what they say. Pod2g once stated that he was very confident that we’d see an untethered jailbreak on iOS 6, newer devices included, within the coming months. However, with the progress that is being made, we can only guess that it will be slightly quicker than that.

    There is still a lot of work that has to be done. iOS 6.1 has not been publicly released yet, so the hackers will more than likely be waiting for that release to see how the jailbreak plays out. Afterwards, the hackers will need to test its stability and then produce jailbreak tools that jailbreakers can use to finally jailbreak their devices. This will all add to the time it will take to get the jailbreak into the public’s hands.

    Please continue to offer positive support for these hackers and remain patient!

      We are so close! I cannot wait for the untethered and BootRom releases. Especially if the BootRom works with the 5s as well.

      Bootrom is not even close.

      The only progress is an untethered iOS 6 jailbreak.

      It would be nice if the jailbreak was released before I got my Pebble. I am concerned about Cydia apps that do not work on iOS6 and the Cydia apps iOS6.1 might break.

      Calm down folks. There's still no method for injecting the payload. No ETA of any kind here.

      There's not much to worry about. They didn't reveal any specifics about the vulnerabilities, so Apple won't even know what to patch.

      It would be great to be jailbroken again but my iphone 5 is fine without it.

      That is the first time I've heard a comment like this since the iPhone 5 release.

      I disagree, Apple will be scrupulously checking the 6.1 code to tighten up any areas/vulnerabilities especially with a JB on the horizon now. Hence the reason why PB said he didnt see any reason to hold onto a JB for unsigned FW if 6.1 patched those exploits in 6.0.2 by Apple. Sure it goes against the tradition but could be a possibly with how tough it's becoming to JB these days...
