Planetbeing Has Untethered Jailbreak for iOS 6.0.2, Explains Delay in Release

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.

Pirates all. That is why the iPhone is locked down so tight. It is because of you fuckin' dickheads that the iPhone isn't more customizable.

Thanks for letting us know exactly how intelligent you are. You do not understand the Jailbreak, Therefore you fear it.

jailbreak without releasing is selfish
Jesper - January 8, 2013 at 11:14pm
It will be released after the 6.1 update, and it's said to come mid-january..

So he jailbroke 6.0.2 - which is an ota update for iphone 5 and ipad mini. Does this then actually mean anything other than nothing to anyone other than owners of those 2 devices? If I had one of those devices I would put my device onto that firmware and stay put. My iphone 4S and ipad 2 are still on 5.1.1.

Jailbreaking is ONLY for piracy, whether or not you criminals want to admit it. You bought an expensive phone; pony up a small amount of $$ to pay for the apps you like. Sheesh!
jpalm - January 8, 2013 at 5:29am
You know nothing. I pay for apps all the time. I am jailbroken for tweak to the OS, not to steal.
Bill - January 8, 2013 at 5:56am
Not me. I wanna steal

Useless troll is useless. Well done, you're an idiot.

No sir. The only things i have installed on my phone as far as jailbreak goes are Infinidock, Infinifolders, Gridlock, Activator, and Winterboard. And hell, a few of those I ever paid for through Cydia. So get out of here with your nonsense.
Jesper - January 8, 2013 at 11:02pm
You are obvious a hipster or jerk who don't know anyting about jailbreak or that cydia has a lot of programs that people pays to get on their phone, even if it costs 20$, so keep quiet and return when you know something..idiot.
demohill - January 9, 2013 at 2:38am
Do you know Iblacklist, sbsettings, Quickdo, move2unlock, activator,etc, etc, etc. The Apple learned a lot from the cydia app and no paid for it. You should thank the MyWi creating the wifi router on Iphone.

When my 3gs was jailbroken I used it for multitasking(before IOS had it and even after because the jailbroken form did it better). I used it to output whatever I wanted to my pair of video glasses(because most developers can't be bothered to add the code to make video output possible). I used it to quit apps when they froze, to turn off 3g/bluetooth/whatever else I might need to at a moments notice and to make restarting quicker, a lot easier than going into settings or holding down the power button not to mention quicker). I used it to customize the phone the way I wanted, To put my own custom wallpaper on the phone. None of this is illegal, against apple's rules yes but in the U.S. not illegal as it's covered under a exemption the the DMCA. Never once did I own a single illegal app. I can even post a picture of my Iphone 5 where it has Drakengard, Final Fantasy Dimension, Chaos Rings and a few other games installed on it. Seeing that you can't jailbreak the Iphone 5 and the games I listed are some of the most expensive apps on the app store I am far from afraid to pay for apps. To say that anyone who doesn't wish to use a product they paid for the way the company who made it wants them to is a pirate is just a joke. I paid for my Iphone 5 and I want to customize it to do things the way I want to customize it. Apple has made plenty of money off of jailbreakers, If it wasn't for JBs I would probably have bought a droid or a windows phone instead of my Iphone 5.
