iOS 6.x.x Jailbreak Progress Update


Few days back, planetbeing – member of the iPhone Dev team had revealed on reddit that he already had an untethered jailbreak for iOS 6.0.2 running on iPhone 5.

He had also mentioned that iOS 6.1, which is expected to be released anytime soon may break a small part of it. But he noted that they had 4+ exploits and seemed quite confident would help in jailbreaking iOS 6.1.

planetbeing just posted an update on Twitter:

While he hasn’t provided any further details, it suggests that they’ve made progress in jailbreaking iOS 6.1. It’s also good to see pod2g who recently released an impressive DJ app for the iPad is working on the jailbreak again.


pod2g has just revealed via a tweet that they’ve found two new vulnerabilities yesterday.

However, it looks like they still need to figure out a hack, which will allow them to release the jailbreak to the public.

According to security experts, Apple has made jailbreaking more difficult in iOS 6.1 by adding tougher protection. Apple has released four beta versions of iOS 6.1 and widely expected to release it anytime soon. As a golden rule, jailbreakers should avoid upgrading to iOS 6.1 when it is released.

We can’t wait for the jailbreak community to release the untethered jailbreak. As always, we’ll let you know as soon as we’ve any further updates so don’t forget to join our Facebook Fan page or follow us on Twitter or add us on Google+ or subscribe to our RSS feed.

    • Slick

      Didnt u read bout da “golden rule”??

      • Sebastian Rasch

        It doesn’t matter if you update to 6.0.2 or not, the next Jailbreak will be for 6.1 anyways.

  • Bob williams

    I need to stop wasting money hurry up por favor

    • Sebastian Rasch

      So jailbreaking is only about cracked apps for you? Shame on you.

      • iPhoneHacks

        Possible, but I wouldn’t make that assumption. Since planetbeing has said he has a tethered jailbreak for iOS 6.0.2, it is possible that they are holding off releasing the jailbreak until iOS 6.1 is released to ensure that the loop holes are not fixed by Apple.

        So it may be a good ide to stay where you are until they provide more clarity.

        • Sebastian Rasch

          Uhm I know what post this is replying to but it’s not the one you replied to here! ;)

          Anyways, I already updated to 6.0.2 :D Hope I didn’t jump the gun there!

  • Roee

    Thanks but what about the iPhone 4S?

    • iPhoneHacks

      If a jailbreak is released for iPhone 5, it is likely to work on iPhone 4S as well.

  • supp
  • ifonix

  • lee

    i have a iphone 3gs version 6.0.1 firmware 05.16.07 can it be jailbreak or unluck and whats the best way

    • iPhoneHacks

      You can jailbreak your iPhone 3GS. Check out this page for links to the step-by-step tutorials:

      As for unlocking, you probably should check the IMEI based unlocking solutions.

  • Dio De’ Fernan

    cant wait. well done guys, keep up the good work and keep looking for those ‘vulnerabiities ;)’

  • speed9044

    when do you think there will be a JB for the Iphone 4S. I havent sen much talk about that device.

    • iPhoneHacks

      If the jailbreak for iPhone 5 is released (there is no ETA yet), it will also be released for iPhone 4S and other iOS 6.x.x compatible devices.

      • amar

  • rockthebeat

    • Sebastian Rasch

      Read the #*&$ comments

  • Michael Rebar

    Does anyone know why we do NOT have a jailbreak for iPad mini by now? It runs on the same guts as iPad 2, which has been already jailbroken. Just wondering.

    • fteoOpty64

      Not quite the same “guts”, processor is a newer iteration of A5 and boot rom is different (much like the iphone5 bootrom), this defeats the previous exploit in the older boot rom. That why jailbreak needs to find a different way into the OS. Pity though as jailbreak is for users getting tired of the restrictions placed by Apple. Surely, they can see this point and it also leads to a lot defecting to Android 4.2 which is a better OS with way more features and flexibilities than iOS 6.XX/ If they lock users out for long, many users will run elsewhere. And that elsewhere may prove to be a better solution for those users.

  • Jauhari

    Awesome… I am gllad to waiting

  • Diondon

    Moved on to Android.

  • amar

    i wna tjailbreak for iphone 4s ios 6.0.1 (pls guy do fast i am waiting)

  • Wang 왕 King

    No jailbreak = Fewer Apple product buyers… Why can’t Apple see this?

    • fteoOpty64

      They can but the management just ignores it. They think they know better. The day when sales of their flagship drops consistently as Android becomes very polished and still as open as it gets, they might do something. But it will be a while yet. Pity

  • gonneinaclick

    Which is better iphone 5 jailbroke or galaxy s3 rooted with custom roms etc

    • Max_Freedom

      You have to ask pod2g .

  • innovatedmind
