For those of dying for a jailbreak for the iPhone 5/iOS 6, you might only have two weeks to wait. A team called “Dream JB” who aren’t affiliated with Chronic Dev has announced that they will release an untethered jailbreak for the iPhone 5 on December 22nd.

Via Macgasm:

Over the last few weeks, we’ve been reporting on alleged progress of the iPhone 5 untethered jailbreak. The short answer for all of that is: they’re still working on it. Sadly, that’s also the case today. It looks like the Chronic Dev Team is still hard at work chipping away at the defenses that Apple has erected for the iOS 6, something that many has come to regard as a major inconvenience. Still, there’s hope. There’s always hope but this is a more concrete form of hope. According to Auto-o-mobile, a team of jailbreakers going by the name of Dream JB has announced the seemingly impossible: a release date for the jailbreak. December 22nd.

Digging around I found the Dream JB site—Dream JB – Untethered iOS6 Jailbreak—but folks on MacRumors forums are doubtful this is legit so is the Chronic Dev team itself.

I guess we’ll have to wait to see what happens in a couple weeks. Of course, as one MacRumors forums member pointed out, that is the day after the world is supposed to end…
