Pod2g Says Work on a Jailbreak is Still Ongoing

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.

The iPhone is already mini, compared to everything out there. Apple sucks. The iPhone 5 screen size is an insult to Apple fans. If no bigger screen comes out by March/April. I will jump to the Galaxy S IV....and bring my entire company's mobile force (500+ users on Verizon and AT&T) with me.

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 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!

Looking forward to it.:)

I have been a huge jailbreak supporter. In addition, I've owned 3GS,4, and the 5. I really miss the custom screens and additional programs that allowed my iphone to be unique and fun to use. To date, after almost 4 years with jailbroken devices, I wait patiently for IOS 6 jailbreak. I believe the problem that many of us have is the fact that after the jailbreak occurs, it will only be until Sept 2013, at most, before IOS 7 comes out. So that leaves us with 9 months to use the jailbreak. Then the choice will be to stay on the old IOS with jailbreak, or jump ship and go to the new IOS!

that's how it's been for as long as I can remember. but then again I smoke a lot of weed and I can't remember much for long. I'm patiently waiting for the iBong to be jailbroken.

I will move to a phone and OS which can be jailbroken

Most of the pirates who generated the demand for jailbreak have moved onto Android. Not surprising, as they have never cared about quality, just getting a lower price. Good riddance to them. Unfortunately, along with Apple securing to OS more effectively, it pretty much spells the end of jailbreaking. Alas. It was good while it lasted.

I'm not about to give up on jailbreaking just because it's once again taking longer than a couple of months to get one. I'm perfectly happy sticking with iOS 5.1 until then, as iOS 6 didn't add that great of features anyway. What I AM worried about are that there are so few jailbreakers (basically only 3, with no new faces joining them after all this time). But I agree, Apple would do better if they allowed a 'universal' JB opening. That way those that wanted to could JB, and those that didn't want to could apply a patch that would shut down the JB opening.

I'm a believer, jailbreak still alive.
Glasmo - January 4, 2013 at 3:56pm
Sorry to say my patience ran out. I gave up on jailbreaking. Most of my JB friends have as well.
swadson - January 4, 2013 at 4:03pm
Waiting for a JB till date.. Now I am curious to know how its done, and if I am of some help expedite the process. Can I be of any help?
