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

Posted January 5, 2013 at 8:00am by iClarified
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.

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

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..
budsal - January 8, 2013 at 7:11pm
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.

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

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.

An iPhone without SwipeSelection and biteSMS is a big no, no. Jailbreaking is a must.
Jesper - January 8, 2013 at 11:13pm
True! And Infinidock, Nitrous, SBSettings and IntelliscreenX
someguy69 - January 7, 2013 at 6:28pm
That's what a phone is used for...making calls!
cciev - January 7, 2013 at 6:17pm
Thanks Planetbeing and everyone for working on the jailbreak. You guys are the best. Hope to see a jailbreak working on the Iphone 5 soon. God bless.
unlock is no more
unlock is no more - January 7, 2013 at 2:26pm
I could careless for jailbreak.. the only reason I ever wanted the jailbreak was for unlocking. since that is no more.. Last 3 versions of iPhone, I have bought unlocked.. so it doesnt bother me if the jailbreaking dies off. Not to mention $50 carrier will factory unlock your iPhone.
someguy69 - January 7, 2013 at 6:38pm
You are missing a lot of features if unlocking was the only reason for you to jailbreak your iPhone (SB settings, Activator, just to mention a few). Also in most cases your carrier won't unlock the phone before your contract expires, which is usually 2yrs.
kindofblack - January 8, 2013 at 2:34pm
we wait 3 months for unlock in France but penalties if we break the contract before the end of it
Thatcher - January 7, 2013 at 11:54am
I can honestly say I'm done with iOS for this exact reason. We have to rely on these hard working guys (who work for free) to free our phones from Apples sandbox and for what? Being able to send a file via Bluetooth? Being able to set a theme? Making one of my songs a ringtone without using iTunes or a 3rd party app? Don't get me wrong i love my iPhone 5 but the OS sucks. I'm with Pod2G when he says Apple should seriously think about enabling tweaks on iOS. It's not about piracy it's about not having a phone that's the same as everyone else's. I'm waiting for the Galaxy IV before i even consider getting another iPhone. I've had every iPhone since the 3G and loved every one but the iOS has gone stale for me.

My nephew gave me his galaxy sIII after I bought him a iPhone 5 for Christmas. I have been messing with it for the past week or so and I have to say, this thing is a major piece of shit! I get locks and freezes every other day, almost none of the apps I download off the market support the screen size natively. I seriously don't see why people waste money on these plastic paperweights. Jailbreak or not, I'll take a iPhone over any other phone!

I´ve had SGS3 for 6 months and I really love it. I also have an iPad 4 but the main reason I find SGS3 to be better is the ability to customize it. Of course I really cannot compare S3 and iPad because they are totally different devices but I think I made my point clear. It´s all about what you can do to personalize your device.

I'm leaving the iOS platform towards Android - it offers all the gadgets I'm loving with easy access to the fun part. Root access, JB and so on. I can customize the firmware to my taste. Good Bye Mr. Cook.
Noman - January 6, 2013 at 4:36pm
Who cares about Jailbreak anymore?
Samesung - January 6, 2013 at 7:36pm
Pirates. That's who. They claim its for customization but I bet 90% or more jail broken/rooted phones have software that was pirated on them. Even if its something as simple as a ROM they don't own a copy of, it's still pirating. Or to bypass legal software restrictions (tethering) that the legal folks have to pay monthly for by contract. No real reason to jailbreak anymore if you aren't a thief. Every excuse is just a lie to mask pirating. Sorry...

I personally am purchasing every software with added value. I purchased a lot software through Cydia giving iOS added productivity. The main thing in jailbreaking is the toy factor - being able to get into the OS and start tweaking the options, e.g. see how performance and battery life are changing. In the end such toying is driving innovation. Keep in mind: These gadgets are extremely expensive (micro) computers. It'd be a real shame to just use them for phone calls and messaging.
nitro - January 5, 2013 at 10:52pm
so what does that mean? are we gonna get an iOS 6.* jailbreak any near time?
nitro - January 6, 2013 at 1:30am
nope, i havent got any of your replies. i wonder if my mom did. so are we getting a jailbreak soon?
budsal - January 5, 2013 at 10:05pm
He mentioned 6.0.2.. iTunes wants me to upgrade to 6.0.1. Tinyumbrella saves shsh only for up to 6.0.1. Cydia saves shsh for only up to 6.0.1. Do you see where I'm going? Is that a typo or is there some hidden 6.0.2 that I am unfamiliar with?
Vanja - January 5, 2013 at 10:11pm
Not a typo. 6.0.2 is an update only for i5 and ipad mini.
