Dream JB a Fake or Not? We Should Know Tonight


We published a about the supposed tethered jailbreak coming for iOS 6 a while ago, and I think from the consensus of the group, it’s probably a hoax. The folks at iDownload blog feel the same despite the YouTube video posted today. Pity no one told CNET.

Over at iDownloadBlog they have a video that explains why the jailbreak (and the video “proof”) are fake.

The person behind the jailbreak that he’s going to release the jailbreak ten days early and have something to show tonight.

Uh huh. I don’t know about you, but even in the web dev world I couldn’t push up a date on a site by ten days and have a completed project.

Hey, you have to hope right. Sadly, CNET still holds out hope that it’s for real.

I guess we’ll just have to wait until tonight so see if it’s fake or not.

I’m still betting fake.

    I understand why so many people believed it: it gave them hope, but it’s now more a frustration than something else…

    If you believed Dream JB was real, then you’re probably one of those people stocking up on canned foods preparing for the end of the world on 12/21/13.

  • maxilus

    It didn’t take me to a Rickroll, took me to this –

    email: dream@dreamjb.com

    DreamJB was intended as a social experiment. In the matter of a mere week, over 20,000 people followed @DreamJailbreak on twitter.

    This website had over 300,000 unique viewers. People believed in a “jailbreak” that originally provided no proof at all.

    There are services out there that charge for jailbreaks that are intended to be free. Imagine what could have happened should this have gone for sale?

    The provided proof tonight was intended as a final boost to the viewers before this message was released.

    Let this be a lesson to the public. PLEASE be careful when it comes to jailbreak solutions that are advertised outside of the prominent and accepted dev teams. Do some research and follow them on Twitter now.

    Dismiss any claims made by anybody, unless it has been confirmed from the dev team members.

    Should a real jailbreak ever surface, they’ll be the first to give it the OK.

    This experiment is exactly as it was named. Simply just a dream.

    Maybe the dev team has a Christmas present for us and this was publicity stunt to get everyone hyped up. Maybe just maybe.

    Dev team told us so…

    DreamJB believe that the worl will end in 12/21/12 so they said 12/22/12 will be the release of the new jailbreak for ios 6, when they nkew that 12/21/12 is a fake they are truly a scammer and a fake developer that makes their audience fool.
