  • Planetbeing: The Future is Looking Bright for Jailbreaking, Pod2g Urges iOS 6.1 Release


    Planetbeing has once again announced that more progress has been made, and speaks out saying that the “future is looking bright for jailbreaking.” This Tweet comes just a few days after Planetbeing and Pod2g announced finding two additional vulnerabilities, which may or may not be found useful in the iOS 6 untethered jailbreak.

    Even more interesting, pod2g illustrates his eagerness to get to work right away on iOS 6.1, as he urges Apple to release iOS 6.1 “now” in a Tweet replying to Planetbeing. This could be a good thing, having followed the numerous Tweets ahead of the Tweet urging Apple to release iOS 6.1.

    After having shown his eagerness to get iOS 6.1 in his hands, pod2g later retweeted a Tweet from Musclenerd, which is 23 days old, saying, "I wholeheartedly disagree" in response to a Tweet from a jailbreaker who has lost faith in a jailbreak for the "iPhone 5 and iPad 2" being released this year.

    Apple’s latest iOS 6.1 beta is set to expire very soon, however iOS 6.1 golden master has yet to see the light of day. Many jailbreakers who upgraded to the iPhone 5 have been without a jailbreak since they bought Apple's new handset, and a huge number of these jailbreakers are unsure of whether to stay on iOS 6.0.2 or update to iOS 6.1 when the new software update comes out.

    Our advice is to stay on iOS 6.0.2 (or update to iOS 6.0.2 if you have not already), and then wait to see what happens when iOS 6.1 comes out before you update to it. When asked, Musclenerd also agreed with this course of action. Planetbeing at least has an untethered iOS 6.0.2 jailbreak running on his iPhone 5 right now, so it’s at least a pillow to fall back on if a jailbreak for iOS 6.1 cannot be made in the near future.

    The best thing the jailbreak community can do is remain positive toward these hackers that dedicate their time to creating jailbreaks at no cost. Please continue to remain patient, and throw them a "Thank You!" when you get some free time!

      Just to name one is Siri for iPad 3 but its also I always like updating, lol

      You also said unlocks on iPhones purchased in 2013 so can you unlock an iPhone 5 bought in 2012 legally?
      A phone purchased in 2013 can be legally unlocked ONLY by the carrier that it was purchased through.

      A phone that was purchased prior to 2013 can be unlocked by anyone. Legally speaking that is.

      So I have to update using redsnow instead of itunes?

      You use iTunes to do a DFU restore.

      You don't use redsn0w for any part of this process.

      I saw this response yesterday and didn't have time to respond. Hopefully this doesn't get buried somewhere on page 7 or 8 never to be seen...so maybe you'll answer me.

      I preface this by saying it's a legitimate question and not an attempt to troll.

      Why should it be standard protocol to send donations when they have not yet perfected the exploit? I can't think of a single product in the market today where you pay the developers BEFORE they actually make the product. Why should jailbreaking be any different?

      In the rest of the market, the only time I can think of where you give the developers money before the product is actually finalized is if you're an invester...and in those cases you usually give them money ahead of time in exchange for a share of the profits if the product does indeed come to fruition.

      The way I see it, these guys working on the jailbreak are trying to sell a product. When that product - the jailbreak - is finalized and functional I will be more than happy send a donation to reward them for the hard work. Likewise, if they jailbreak is never released then they wouldn't get the donation. Just like I wouldn't give a business man a donation just for working hard. There are tons of people out there who have great ideas and work really hard to make it happen and build a business, but it sometimes just doesn't happen and the business shuts down.

      Why do the guys working on the jailbreak go by a different set of rules than everyone else?


      Again, this is a legitimate question and I'm more than willing to change my opinion if you make a good case. I hope this leads to a good discussion and not a pissing match.

      Like once stated, he thinks you should donate to the cause, not the result. It falls hand in hand with why people donate to breast cancer organizations, even though there is a lack of cancer cure.

      Don't worry anyways, pod2g says the team is not accepting donations at this point in time.

      Because they are not selling anything, they are giving it away. Also like Anthony stated, They aren't taking donations anyway.

But it will never be the case.
      Sorry to say but jail breaking can be made against the law. Because it is against the law to jailbreak your iPad

      Read my response to King. No case would ever hold up in courts.

But I've run this law by a couple friends of mine who knows legal precedent and they assure me a case would never hold up.

      But jailbreak and unlock at your own risk! It is prudent to share that on forums like this. I would agree with you there. I wonder if now that it's illegal if it's going to become off topic for discussion here at the forum… Interesting times ahead…
      Flimsy or not. Easily deniable or not. It is a law, and there is no denying that. A flimsy law is still a law.

      I do see your point, but there is by denying that a law is a law.

      No one here has been denying a law exists, Suby. It's just an unenforceable one which makes it like no law at all. I was speaking in hyperbole to the other poster. The jailbreaks will still come for iPad as its only against "American" law. We need to be careful using the term
      "Against THE law". It's not internationally against the law and never will be. The cases will get thrown out easily if ever tested in the courts.

      The whole idea of making adjustments to your personal property being against the law is just ludicrous anyway.

      Since its now against the law like piracy, the mods here should disallow any threads discussing iPad jailbreaking. Interesting.

      Well piracy and jail breaking are two different things. I believe piracy is banned because of ethical reason not so much law.

      I was just responding to you announcing that "jail breaking can never be made illegal".

      These are your words my friend not mine haha.

      Yes I realize the differences against international and national law. But just like saying national law does not make it international law, something that isn't international law but is national law doesn't make it any less illegal. It's just regional.

      Was just busting your balls though.

      Will an iPhone 5 jailbreak mean I would be able to unlock a natively Sprint iPhone 5 and use it on Verizons network?

      Oh yeah, the courts never make mistakes:

      Remember when they cracked down on Napster? How many teenagers got arrested?

      There's no way they could take our rights away either (Patriot Act).
      They could never violate the 2nd amendment (Assault Weapons Ban of 2013).
      Innocent people never get put in jail (list too long).

      If you don't think they could nail you on a copyright violation, especially to make a point

      Man you are living in a fantasy land
