Planetbeing of the iPhone Dev-Team has updated the failbreak for the iPhone 5 with a kernel exploit.

Upgraded the #failbreak with a kernel exploit so tweaks actually work on iPhone 5. :D Almost a full tethered JB, though need dev account.

Last month, chpwn revealed that his jailbreak for the iPhone 5 would be reserved as a failbreak. That means it will be limited to jailbreak developers and won't be released to the public.

Planetbeing explains why a failbreak is necessary:

These exploits are valuable for discovering new ones in the future, so it's nice to keep them and release only the good ones.

You can follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, or RSS to be notified as soon as any further jailbreak developments are announced.

P.s I own iPhone 3GS 4 and 4s. iPad 2,3 and iPod touch 4,5 As well as htc one x Samsung galaxy s2,3 google nexus. Not trying to brag or show off more letting people know the devices I have and thus how I am able to come to my opinion.

iPhone iPad and iPod touch have had there fair problems be it not viruses and such bust mostly hardware issues, am I really the only one to remember the iPhone 4 and the antenna issues or the iPad 3 with over heating and super fast battery dishcharge and the iPod 5 well let's just say I'm less than impresses scuffs dodgy headphone jacks... The iPhone 5 is but a minor upgrade which why I shall not purchase it. Having said that the stability and power on the device IN MY OPINION is the best android is equivalent to standard glasses and I devices equivalent to designer the hefty price DOES NOT justify the closed features but lets face it people, we all not that's what apple is yet millions are sold and preorderd more than any android
