pod2g Confirms Jailbreak For iOS 6.1 is Ready


When pod2g dared Apple to release iOS 6.1, we assumed that the hackers had the jailbreak ready for it, however weren’t completely confident.

We’ve now got a confirmation that it is indeed is true. In an interview with iDigitalTimes, pod2g has confirmed that an jailbreak for iOS 6.1 is ready and has credited team members planetbeing and pimskeks for it.

pod2g has recently announced that he, MuscleNerd and planetbeing of the iPhone Dev Team and pimskeks of the Chronic Dev  team  are forming a team called evad3rs.

pod2g had this to say:

“For your information and this is important to me that everybody knows about it also, this jailbreak will be @planetbeing and @pimskeks. I arrived at the end, gave ideas that pushed them to their maximum, I kinda unblocked the situation, but it would certainly have happened without me helping.

Now I am helping as much as I can in terms of communication, websites, and also development, but I was not involved the same way as previous, focused on my work and all… Yes, in order @planetbeing, @pimskeks, then me.”

pod2g has also clarified that iOS 6.0 is jailbroken as is iOS 6.1 beta 4. They are waiting for Apple to release iOS 6.1 GM or iOS 6.1 to check if Apple has fixed any of the loop holes used by them before releasing the jailbreak.

“6.0 is jailbroken, 6.1 beta 4 also. Now we are waiting 6.1 to confirm and release.”

But with the release of iOS 6.1 beta 5 over the weekend, it looks like the jailbreak may get delayed further.

MuscleNerd of the iPhone Dev team and iH8sn0w, developer of Sn0wbreeze has pointed out that iOS 6.1 beta 5 isn’t like other beta versions as it has no ReleaseType lock keys, so there is no expiration. It is widely speculated that Apple could release iOS 6.1 directly to the public instead of releasing iOS 6.1 golden master.

    I will be able to finally secure my iPad mini from “alpine” attacks. This is good news for the technically able folks whom want to protect their devices.

  • Signal

    Yeah but is it for the iPhone 5 too?

    • Apel P

      Yes. Read the post.

  • Jim

    Can’t wait! My iPhone 5 has been so blah since I got rid of my JB 4S… and my mini could be so much more.. can’t wait to see what type of JB apps devs will come out with to take advantage of the larger 5 screen.

    You guys always seem behind on the news, iDB reported this two days ago. What’s up with that?

    • http://www.iphonehacks.com iPhoneHacks

      If you’re referring to hackers can’t wait for Apple to release iOS 6.1, then we reported that one much before iDB did.

        Naww I’m referring to “Pod2g confirms the readiness of the jailbreak”. I’m not complaining or anything, I’m just curious.

    Lol. Jailbreak rules. Apple sucks for making jailbreak necessary.

    • moe22

      you are right.

    I just care so I can add a mouse to my iPad. If Apple would add simple things like that and some of the other basics that lead people to jailbreak, we could focus time and energy on hacking other things.

    I have Apple TV and don’t really see the use of a JB for it… Enlighten me…

    Is the 6.1 Jailbreak going to be tethered or untethered?

    • http://www.facebook.com/JLDeBias Jason Lee DeBias Sr.

      forget it. I just saw the most recent post and it will be untethered!!! awesome job guys!!!!

  • Zero2029

    I will definitely donate once this jailbreak comes out for my iPhone 5. Stock ios sucks! Step it up apple let us do what we want with our phone.

  • Apel P

    Seriously. People are mean. These people that jailbreak. Take there time to give you this stuff for free. I have never said anything bad because somebody did something wrong in a jailbreak or it took to long. They should make it paid. They deserve it. Anybody that gets pissed that its paid. There problem.

  • SDeath

    iOS 6.1 is released by apple both my iPad3 and iPhone 5 give the update now.

  • nzhong168

    With my iPad waiting to upgrade to iOS 6 and my iPhone 4 and 5 without JB and waiting and waiting, today is sunny day. Donate and donate! Thank for these folks. They did a awesome job to beat Apple top engineers.

    My decision to buy Apple TV3 and iPad mini wilIl depend on whether they can be JB.

    I need to use it for XBMC and quick access to WiFI, Bluetooth control. With JB, these are impossible.

    • nzhong168
