  • 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!

      If you're going to update, do it through iTunes. Don't update through OTA.

      Update in iTunes "not over the Air"

      Use redsn0w. It's the easiest and most current way to save SHSH blobs. Follow the bandwagon.

      I know your results. In those threads we all agreed that you don't 'heavily use' your phone. That's the only unique thing about you, bro . You're the only one that's been able to report anywhere close to the usage you get. That tells us the obvious - you're not a heavy user, my friend.

      Edit: I got a replacement iPhone 5 this week and I get the same battery life on iOS 6.0.2. I don't think I had any kind of magical phone to begin with.
      Oh DO tell me the reason why you got a new iP5? Was it that muffled sound through the earpiece speaker I've been reading about? Apple wouldn't take mine back for that reason even though it's being talked about ALL over the net. I'm calling it 'muffle-gate'.. LOL!!

      you cant save SHSH using sn0wbreeze, you need to use either tinyumbrella or redsn0w

      download tinyumbrella (it's easier for iphone 4), connect your iphone to the computer, and click "SAVE SHSH"

      Yeah, I don't think I'm a light iPhone user. I'm just reasonable with my preferences.

      Dropped my iPhone 5 when it wasn't in a case and ruined the glass, so I went and got a new one.

      The way I did it was:

      1. I plugged in my iPhone 5
      2. Opened redsn0w and clicked "Extras"
      3. Clicked "SHSH blobs"
      4. Clicked "New"
      5. Selected my iOS 6.0.2 firmware
      6. redsn0w told me it saved blobs and asked me if I wanted to submit them
      7. I clicked yes
      8. Done


      Afterwards, you will be able to verify that redsn0w submitted them to Cydia by clicking the Query button. (Optional)

      Yeah you mentioned the kinds of activities you do but you didn't mention your 'preferences'. But I don't want to hijack this thread.. Let me ask you about it here:

      Ugh, the thought of waiting until Mid-March knowing there's probably a jailbreak ready to go...no thanks.

      Question. Why is OTA bad? I can personally report worse battery life on a fresh 6.0.2 than I did with OTA from 6.0

      Also has there ever been a jailbreak that didn't work for all past FW? Meaning if the jb works for 6.0.2 it will work for that FW and older?

      And I'll say it again. I have NEVER seen a jailbreak released for a FW that isn't being signed by apple. Especially sense the iPhone 4S and newer can't even be restored to older FW even with saved blobs and whatnot.

      My guess would be the jail break will be released when it works with 6.1. I could be wrong. And because I don't depend on a jail break and would rather be on a current FW i will be updating when 6.1 is released. And if I'm wrong. Oh well lol

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