  • 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 i wasn't asking about the botroom exploit im saying that downgrading back to iOS 6.0.1 will not be necessary coz eventually there will be a JB for the iPhone 4 what i was asking was can something higher than 4 ( who already has SHSH blobs saved ) upgrade and then re-downgrade back to 5.1.1... And 2K1 already answered my question...

      Is it all based on when 6.1 is released publicity?

      I meant the JB for the iphone 5. I know Pod2g mentioned 6.1 so i wasn't sure if that was needed to release the JB.

      Oh well then, i think it all depends on the ios 6.1 since p0d2g tweeted urging apple to release the new fw
      But hopefully 2 weeks after the release of the fw

      This was the most important post and you have not answered it Anthony. Anyone can follow these two on twitter, but if we ask a question, they will not answer. Why don't you ask the question wether or not they are willing to face the litigation if they release a public jailbreak for the ipad and ipad mini. The ipad for me has become a great big toy for my kids to play with, this makes the JB not very necessary, after they outlawed it, it pretty much made the device useless for me to use at work, had to switch to the jelly bean(without ifile and usb drive its useless). I would love to switch back to the pad, but I will refuse until I know that their is at least a jb in the works that will be released.

      JB'ing can never be made against the law. It can only void the warranty for breach of user agreement. And it would have to be against the law in ALL countries. One countries law can't be made international. It's also an unenforceable law and nearly untraceable. I wouldn't worry. They've been 'beating their chest' about making JB illegal for years. But it will never be the case.

      I hope you are right, you can pirate just as easily on any open source, not the reason I want the jb, I need it to acquire the functionality that I need.

      Jailbreaking iPads is against the law in the US. Do some research.

      Unlocks on any phone purchased 01/01/2013 is also illegal, unless done with the permission of the network carrier.

      Just because it may be difficult to enforce, doesn't make it any less a crime.

      I'm on 6.0.2. when it first came out, but I made the mistake of updating OTA. Do I have to restore my phone and update thru itunes. Or am I'm good when the JB arrives? I had to update to 6.0.2 because of wifi issues (which the updated corrected)

      You can restore to iOS 6.0.2 via DFU mode and set the device up as a new device to correct the ramdisk.

      There is currently no way to restore between unsigned iOS 6 firmwares at this point in time, so it's completely up to you if you want to do this. I only recommend it in case the hackers find a way to do this in the near future like they have with iOS 5.

      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?

      So you believe everything you read on the Internet, King? Have you actually read the law? I have. Trust me it's very very flimsy. (That's why I gave the previous poster the input I did.) It would never hold up in any court of law. No I'm not a lawyer just a humble tech guy. 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…
