Pod2g, the hacker behind recent untethered jailbreaks, says that work on a jailbreak of iOS 6 is still ongoing. He has recently been encouraging Twitter users to demand an open iOS from Apple leading to speculation that the Dev-Teams had given up.

--
I read some coms on the internet today saying that if I started #weWantAnOpenIOS it is because we can't jailbreak iOS 6 and Apple won.

This is false in many ways. Firstly, the jailbreak is being developed in the underground, and is just not ready for a public release.

Secondly, it's not the jailbreaker that talked with this message, as I am not involved in security research for some months now, working on

my application and other projects. If the only possible way to #weWantAnOpenIOS is the jailbreak, it'll happen. It is not the end!

Or course, a jailbreak (although not one ready for public release) has already been demonstrated by chpwn. In addition, pod2g previously announced that he was not working on a jailbreak of iOS 6.

You can follow us on Twitter, Facebook, or RSS to be informed the moment a jailbreak is available.

By the time they have a jailbreak for iOS 6, iOS6.1 will be out. The jailbreaks are taking too long to be worthwhile anymore. I gave up on jailbreaking after iOS5.

In a way I have given up as well. But I found a way to utilized the iPhone 5 without jailbreak. The stuff I needed was tether capability which tether.com took care of it with 29.95 yearly fee. And then I just recently subscribed to Slacker for 9.99 a month to get my music. Yes, they require money and all but I guess that's a breaks of life. If JB ever come out great!
