Planetbeing reveals on Reddit that he already has an untethered jailbreak of iOS 6.0.2 on his device and explains why it hasn't been released yet.

Yeah, I'm not really sure what all the doom and gloom is about. The fact is, I have an untethered iOS 6.0.2 JB running on my iPhone 5 right now. The reasons it's not released are because 1. releasing it would burn an exploit we want to save for ourselves so we can always get in to look at new firmware and help JB in the future, 2. iOS 6.1 is coming very soon and will likely break a small part of it anyway, there's no point in sacrificing the many bugs it won't break.

Anyway, where there are 4+ bugs (that it took to get this to work), there's gotta be one or two more so while jailbreaking is getting harder, reports of its death are highly exaggerated.


Planetbeing's comments come after Pod2g encouraged Twitter users to demand an open iOS from Apple leading to speculation that the Dev-Team had given up.

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

Keep the iOS closed. Most already moved to Android. Just read the news that Apple cancelled orders for iphone5. Serve you right Apple for holding your customers ranson with your stupid policies. Keep it up. See if anyone cares when your phone sales drops to a negligible figure. Apple rock...bottoms.

It would be great if they fixed the annoying 'feature' where the personal hotspot stops broadcasting wifi if you don't use it for a couple of minutes, it drives me mad having to keep restarting the feature to reconnect my iPad. www.androidfamily.net
