Critical Pieces Still Needed for Public Jailbreak of iOS 6

Critical Pieces Still Needed for Public Jailbreak of iOS 6

Posted November 15, 2012 at 7:32pm by iClarified
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

@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.

If the iPhone 5 was just a tarted up 4s it would already be jailbroken. It's easy for someone who hasn't yet had the opportunity to use the new device, to dismiss it.

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

Just cancel, I'm to bored to wait any longer on a Jailbreak, takes WAY to long. Bad for Cydia developers. Anyhow not much new of interest in Cydia, mostly stuff that will make your ios device unstable.

This whole apple JB thing is just getting out of hand. In Jan 13 I will be getting a Droid phone, easier rooting. And apk files all over the place. I got a tablet and see how easy I will be for a phone. I feel Apple missed with delivering a great new phone, hince I'll be becoming a Fandroid.

This is a good news to all jailbreak community. I agree with all the people,there is a hope. This is also good for cydia. I will always support our hackers donate whatever I could afford . I have not bought an Iphone 5 either. Might as well get it now .I have an Iphone 4s I fucked up my 5.1.1 .Now I dont have a jailbreak. Man this a fucking boring iphone without a jailbreak. Apple will loose lots of customers if there is no jailbreak. I am sure saurik is loosing lots of money 2..Can't sell tweaks if you cant jailbreak. Specially newer devices like an Iphone4S or Iphone5! I hope we get it by thanks giving That would be great I will donate Thank you for letting us know.

This is better news and at least there is a JB in progress. I swear that I will donate to who ever come up with iPhone 5 JB. Thank you in advance.

Hope it's released sooner than later. I won't buy the iPhone 5 until there is an untethered jailbreak available for it.
sidewinder - November 15, 2012 at 8:59pm
with that logic it's conceivable that when the jailbreak is released by the time you get your iphone 5 it won't come with the jailbreakable firmware. The jailbreak will come out eventually so you might think about getting the phone now rather than later to ensure it will be jailbreakable.

You are 100% on point well said man!

That's a good point.

We need pod2g back. He is our only hope of a untethered ios6 jb before iOS 7 comes out.

Ohhh, was waiting to get an iphone 5 on Thanksgiving hoping to have a JB by then :(
