pod2g: There Is No iOS 6 Jailbreak [WWJC]

Last week, just after the iPhone 5 went on sale, we got the good news that Apple’s new iPhone that comes pre-installed with iOS 6 was jailbroken.

Based on the status of the iOS 6 jailbreak, we were least expecting Apple’s new iPhone to be jailbroken on the day of the launch. It has raised hopes that the iOS 6 jailbreak, which is currently available for iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and iPod touch 4G, will be released for newer iOS devices soon.

The jailbreak dream have been surprisingly quiet about the jailbreak, so there was some speculation that pod2G – iOS jailbreak hacker extraordinaire, who was to speak at the WorldWide Jailbreak Convention (WWJC) that took place in San Francisco yesterday, would announce the iOS 6 jailbreak at the event.

Cult of Mac who were present at the event report:

pod2g just took the stage to talk about jailbreak techniques and the future of iOS 6 jailbreaking. After giving a technical run-through of his past exploits in iOS 4 and 5, Cyril explained that there is no working untethered jailbreak for iOS 6. [..]

[..] Cyril opened the iOS 6 section of his talk with, “Will I release the iOS 6 jailbreak today? No! Of course not!”

Grant Paul a.k.a chpwn had also clarified on Twitter that the iPhone 5 jailbreak that he had teased us with last week is currently meant for jailbreak developers like the iPhone Dev team and the Chronic Dev Team.

So while there seems to be a way to jailbreak iOS 6 on new iOS devices like iPhone 5, it doesn’t seem to be untethered and there seems to be a lot of work to be done before it can be released to the public. So please be patient and don’t expect the jailbreak to be released anytime soon.

As always, we’ll let you know as soon as we get any more details, so stay tuned here at iPhone Hacks or follow us on FacebookTwitterGoogle+ or subscribe to our RSS feed.

    Good luck guys..really appreciate your efforts..

  • tanoz

    i still think thats great work regardless, they always work for the public and only release what is stable. Its responsible and fair

  • GiZZeRR

    Do you think iphones popularity would drop if it was announced there was no way to jailbreak it? I would miss the jailbreak but I’m not sure if I would drop the iphone because there was no jailbreak.

  • Gaurav

    Iphone popularity will certainly decrease if there would be no way to jailbreak it…………….

      You are an idiot

      • grim reefa

        Its “You’re” dumbass!

        • Zangpakto

          Technically you do not NEED to shorten every single time you use a word. In fact it places emphasise on the words as a whole. Are you not a kid perhaps rather as what you just did was an utter fail at trying to be a grammi nazi.

          • chungpham2004

            at least he didn’t say “Your” …lol

          • grim reefa

            No, I’m 29 and just think that somebody calling somebody an idiot but at same time not even writing his sentence correctly is ludicrous which is why I pulled him up on his lack of correct “grammi”.

          • Ylber

            Grim Reefa YOU ARE an idiot because it is perfectly correct to say “you are” as chungpham2004 stated it would be incorrect to have said “your” which is perhaps the reason for your apparent confusion.

    • SeptonSeveren

      Agreed 100%

  • gaurav

    Without these guys working so hard on JB we would never have it. So keep up the good work and hopefully they will sort something soon.

  • Ljs

    If there was no jailbreak I’d buy me a 4s on 5.0.1 and put my 5 away for a while

    We want Jailbreak!

  • vito

    big ups to pod and the entire dev team for helping us out thus far!! i think that apple got to this guy and the team jmho! i remember seing that somewhere earlier in this year that ios 6 was very easy to unteather prolly when they had the vote weather to go ahead with the 5.1.1 or go straight to ios 6 to me none of this makes sense! there is way more to this story than we know!!

    What comes up, must come down.


    While iPhone’s popularity is still undoubtedly peaking the top of the lists; my personal predictions of its inevitable downfall, would not be solely based on the ability of super user access (jailbreaking), or lack thereof.

    I can only presume, the more probable cause of iPhone’s demise would be directly related to Apple’s ever so constant increase in “security” – better recognized as “solitude”, away from anything and everything that isn’t made by, approved by, and/or profited by Apple.

    When however … is also speculation as well of course.

    Flame away – be my guest…

  • chungpham2004

    JBing sure makes a iphone more appealing to users with intermediate or expert level of tech knowledge… however… the majority of users are either kids or elders who only know how to answer or making phone calls or sometime use it as an ipod… I don’t see how not having a JB will bring the iphone sale numbers down… the phone sold out on the first day of launch though there was not a promise of a JB being released anytime soon

  • stevejobless

    you know what? those dev teams are now hired by apple secretly not just long ago. 46 days ago when joshua hill went pout of the dev team due to making money from istead giving free hack apps cydia?, and now he accepted apples demand, hired to make apple story more exciting less bored gadget of generation, just like viruses.. most of viruses are from anti virus developers, they will make virus so that their anti virus will be sold out., in short money all matters, apple make us stupid all the time…,

    • Jason

      Yeah thats y they all have hot model girlfriends, live in east hamptons and the beverly hills and drive italian sports cars n DON’T work @ home depot waiting for us to send donations so they could afford to buy idevices to tinker with and and release updates from their grand mothers basement all so “individuals” like stevejobless can make comments on “certian” blog sites about how their in apple’s pocket…..

  • alex

    i buy iphone only to jailbreake it ! i would never buy an iphone to use it at 50% of his power !

  • honound

    very helpful information guys.

  • jhicks

    any idea on the timeline of the release of the untethered version? can we expect it to be released in 2012?

  • hatedknight

    so now they seem not to be able to jailbreak iOS 6 makes me look even more toward nokia 920. sorry i am a full on apple guy but without jailbreak i lose so much, like being able to change the UI to something newer looking. i do not mean to start a fight just saying thats all. then add in all the problems coming from iphone 5 right now makes me wonder where apple is going.

  • yb7

    guys i downloaded a software from the internet that jb all devices on 6.0 but it is a locked archive rar and i can not open it but some people posted comments about his jb that it’s really jailbreaking the iphone 5 and all the idevices running io6 it is true i guess but i didn’t try it because it’s locked with a password plzz help

  • Unluckyiphoneuser
