  • 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!

      No prob, that threw me the first time I had to restore too. Downloaded the 5,1 firmware and itunes didn't like it. Figured out my UK iPhone 5 is same model as a Verizon one so needed the 5,2 firmware.

      I hope this would come out soon, I really miss jailbreaking because I need to reinstall callblock.
      Hate all the spams coming in now that I switch to iPhone 5.

      Why is he a *******?
      If he wants to donate for the result, he can donate to the result.
      It is called a donation, he can donate how ever he wants.
      The important thing is to donate money.

      The only problem I have is...
      When people post comments like that I doubt they will ever donate any money to the cause or result.

      If you're not on iPhone 5 or iPad Mini, then iOS 6.0.1 is the highest firmware you can run.

      You're going to be fine on that firmware.

      Just to clarify... I have iPhone 5 on 6.0 .... would it be best to update now to 6.0.2? Or wait for a 6.1 jailbreak?

      So it looks like IOS6/601 wont be jailbroken and IOS6.1 will be.
      If they want a thanks then they will get lots of them when the next jailbreak is released.
      WHY thank them now for nothing. My iPad3 is still not jailbroken so they dont get a thanks yet. They get a WHY ARE YOU TAKING SO LONG!!!? Its been what? 6 months since IOS6 came out and still nothing.

      You know, I'm sure it would go much faster if you'd share your mighty reverse engineering and system penetration skills with the community... as a volunteer, of course...

      Looks like this only concerns restoring?

      I wish there was a way for them to block people like you from using their jailbreaks.

      It's attitudes like yours that drive hard working hackers away from doing this stuff.

      I mean your right. Why thank them for past jail breaks. Why thank them for never giving up and continuing to try and outsmart the most secure platform out.

      Your right why the hell would we thank them because your ******* iPad3 isn't jailbroken yet.

      So this really doesn't effect devices like iPhone 4S and 5 that can only restore on apple signed FW?
