Planetbeing, a member of the iPhone Dev-Team, shows IntelliScreenX running on the iPhone 5 but reveals that critical pieces needed for the public release of the iOS 6 jailbreak are still missing. Currently only the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, and iPod Touch 4G can be jailbroken on iOS 6.0 and only the old bootrom iPhone 3GS is untethered.

Can't say too much, but we're still missing critical pieces so it's not releasable right now. Believe me, we'd love to release it asap.

The only thing I can say about the date is that I promised @alexeheath to try not to have it be released on a Sunday. :P


Planetbeing also noted that it's likely the team will only release a jailbreak if it's untethered.

I meant if a JB comes out for the 4S, it'll probably be at the same time as for the other devices, not earlier.

It's unlikely we'll see a tethered JB for later devices. They'll likely be untethered or nothing unless we find a bootrom bug

Well I just have to say, I have owned and jailbroke every device ever since the first iPhone. I have the 5 now and dream of it being jailbroken. But if they never came out with another jailbreak they have definitely given me way more than they owed me. You guys (us) need to realize that we are parasites. We are sitting back reaping the benefits of their work. We have just become spoiled and expect that the new jailbreaks will be delivered on time, and now that one is not fast enough for us we bellyache and moan. the attitude we need to adapt is one of thankfulness. Thank you dev team and all that played a roll in every jailbreak thus far. And if you never release another jailbreak let me be the one to say that we are still indebted to you. Thank you again.

@leauge_bum I couldn't agree more with your statement.. I have moved on and not expecting jailbreak anymore. We have to learn and find away for ourselves rather than rely on anyone to make us happy. I am force to learn new ways to appreciate what my current devices offer and I'm greatful for it. iPhone 5, iPad mini can still be as fun with or without Jailbreak, just find a way to appreciate it for what it is.

It seems like the iOS Jailbreak'ing community is slowly dying. These JB's are taking for ever, and there's a good chance there may never be a JB for iPhone 5, period. Would also be great to see a Jailbreak released for the Apple TV 3. These king hackers that once owned Jailbreaking iOS have moved on to new challenges. The iOS Jailbreaking hype is all over.

So many whiny bitches out there. Iphone 5 by itself is a great phone and jailbreak completes it. I definitely miss it and can't wait to have it. Meanwhile thank you dev team for even working on it. Lots of respect to you from Armenia!

Shit I have an ipad 4 sitting here in its sealed box waiting for a jailbreak. Needs to come soon or the thing is being sold, can't hang around being teased especially when I am one of few who ACTUALLY donates every time when I have jailbroken my idevice. Come on guys
