iOS 6 Jailbreak Progress Update

iOS 6 Jailbreak

The jailbreak dream team continues to make progress developing a jailbreak for iOS 6. David Wang a.k.a planetbeing has just tweeted that he has managed to get Cydia tweaks to work on his jailbroken iPhone 5.

planetbeing had managed to jailbreak iPhone 5 on the same day it went on sale.

planetbeing tweeted:

Upgraded the #failbreak with a kernel exploit so tweaks actually work on iPhone 5. :D Almost a full tethered JB, though need dev account.

planetbeing goes on to explain why the failbreak is necessary:

These exploits are valuable for discovering new ones in the future, so it’s nice to keep them and release only the good ones.

Few days back planetbeing had revealed that they had couple of kernet exploits, which could be used for the jailbreak. “We still have a few tricks up our sleeves,” Wang said.

“It’s very engrossing. It’s kind of like doing a very complicated Sudoku or a crossword but it’s like 10 times harder. It’s just entertaining to be able to use your brain in that way. It’s really the only reason I do it.” 

It remains to be seen how long it will take for the jailbreak dream to release a tethered or untethered jailbreak for iOS 6.

As always, we’ll let you know as soon as we get any further details about the iOS 6 jailbreak, so stay tuned here at iPhone Hacks or follow us on FacebookTwitterGoogle+ or subscribe to our RSS feed.

    Seems like just yesterday I was counting the seconds until a ios 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak release. I have since sold my iPod 4g and plan on getting the iPod 5g before Christmas and am now playing the waiting game for an ios 6.0 Jailbreak. I hope these guys can pull it off again, all my hopes, prayers, and gratitude guys, if anybody can do it these guys can.

    Is there a jailbreak out for the Apple Tv, 2 running on IOS6?

  • Joss_whedle

    Could someone develop something similar to jailbreakme for iOS 6. I have a iPhone 4 but I can’t use my desktop to download stuff, so it’d be awesome if someone could make it available for the phone’s safari.
