pod2g Dares Apple To Release iOS 6.1; Jailbreak Seems Imminent After It’s Released


Last night, planetbeing had revealed that he and pod2g had made tons of progress and the future of jailbreaking was looking bright.

Based on pod2g latest tweet, it looks like the hackers feel confident of releasing an untethered jailbreak to the public after iOS 6.1 is released.

In his latest tweet, he has dared Apple to release to release iOS 6.1.

We may be reading too much between the lines, but pod2g’s tweet seems to suggest that they’ve a jailbreak ready to released, but are holding off until Apple releases iOS 6.1 or they’ve made a major breakthrough that will make it possible.

It was only a few days back that he and pod2g had discovered two new vulnerabilities. At that time, pod2g had mentioned they still need the hack, which will allow them to release the jailbreak to the public. It looks like they’ve figured out a way.

Apple has released four beta versions of iOS 6.1 and widely expected to release it anytime soon as the fourth beta version expires on Jan 28th. But it may be still be prudent for the jailbreakers should avoid upgrading to iOS 6.1 and wait for the hackers to confirm if it was safe to do so.

We can’t wait for the jailbreak community to release the untethered jailbreak. 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.

I can’t wait to use tweaks like Auxo on my iPhone 5. Which jailbreak tweaks do you plan to install when the jailbreak is released?

    Plot-twist: iOS 6.1 becomes fully customizable


    • erfgb

      that would be good, but until iOS becomes open source, jailbreaking will never die

    • MuscleMass

      @ pakaku. Well, IF WE UPDATE, 6.1 will only be customizable for a few short months. By the time the JB team releases the jailbreak for 6.1, Apple will be almost ready to release 6.2. It’s a never-ending cat and mouse game.

        There’s a Jailbreak for 6.2 already. They have announced it.

        • Diarno

          That was a 6.0.2 Jailbreak

    • jaybeans821

      if that happens i will piss myself, however i can forsee apple opening up a little more with iphone 6 and ios 7, they really have to do something..

    • Upgrayedd

      The sad thing is that will never happen. The thing that shocked me so much that is making me move to adroid is that there is no need to jailbreak an adroid device. You can down all the tweeks and modification through their google play store. When I found out about all the freedom my jaw dropped. Until apple embrases the jailbreak community rather than trying to stop it at all costs to the point you cant even downgrade their firmware if you have a problem I’m starting to give up on apple.

      • Upgrayedd

        By the way, I am still going to get an iPad mini once the new one comes out unless the update sucks (then I will wait for the next one. I am too invested in their app store. I actually have close to 5000 legal full version apps.

      • Damani Brown

        Yes, but you can’t do any “real” modifications to it unless you “root” it. Same thing as jailbreaking.

        • Upgrayedd

          Ya but its easy to root and its usually rootable within one week. No one is fighting it.

          • Damani Brown

            Rooting is quite difficult depending on the device. You have to download sdk’s add in adb’s and a whole bunch of other crap, finding the right recovery rom. Everything is manual and is a big hassle. iPhone jailbreak, you just click a button and done. An average computer user would take hours to root. No one may fight it, but it isn’t as easy as the iPhone jailbreak.

            BTW I may switch to Android if the next iPhone isn’t better than the Galaxy S4. I have a upgrade, and it will not be WASTED!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Sid

      Guess there will still be a room to jailbreak something in iOS. pod2g and musclenerd are not going to sit back and relax for sure.

    one of the rare times which the jailbreak community is actively waiting for a new version of iOS

  • David

    Getting tired of this cat and mouse games. Leaving users stuck on a none JB phone.

    • RayZorPCs

      well dont update then

    • moe22

      LOL exactly what RayZorPCs said. dont update. why do you make it sound like your phone is supposed to be jailbroken? if it is make a jailbreak right now i demand it from you and it has to work 100% i dont want anything less. start now.

  • JB PT

    Release the JB ppl!
    Hello from Portugal

  • Andrew

    So close. I can’t wait to tweak the sh1t outta my iPhone 5. I have been so bored with this phone. Thankfully people figured out some glitches to pass the time. So close so close. Shows how good pod2g really is. He’s only been back for a couple of weeks and already we’ve seen more progress in these two weeks then we have all year. Keep up the good work people.

    • Sid

      I agree. Once a person has got a taste of using a jailbroken phone, the stock iOS looks aweful. I hate my phone everyday until I would be able to Jailbreak it once released.

  • Jackyl Hyde

    pod2g & planetbeing — our heroes

  • el

    the moment apple releases ios 6.1 and this team releases the jb, sales will shoot sky high i am sure …… :)

  • Sophea

    Can I jailbreak my iphone 4s version 6.0 ?

    • Sid

      Hi Sophea, yes you can but it will be better if you wait until the latest untethered version of Jailbreak is release for iOS 6.

      The Jailbreak that is available right now will only work if you do not restart your phone. By any chance if your phone battery is exhausted or you restart your phone, the jailbreak will vanish.

      Untethered Jailbreak will let you have your phone completely jailbroken, even if you turn off/restart your phone several times.

    • Damani Brown

      4 Yes, 4S no.

  • AT&T Rapes Me

    Damn u apple release it!

  • Island Iphone

    JB please from the Bahamas please

  • D4

    Dear iphonehacks, you have put “he has dared Apple to release to release iOS 6.1″ just pointing out the extra “to release” :)

    Good work pod2g!

  • Rlc

    I’m still on 6.0 iphone 5 can I update to 6.0.2 now?

  • Israelfox

    Come at us Apple!!
    You MAD 6.1 lol

  • wolverinemarky

    so exciting when we get close to a jailbreak release the anticipation is getting epic cant wait to unleash my iphone 5. thanks for the news

  • Duke

    I dont understand why they wait for 6.1 tombe released, they will jailbreak 6.0.1 anyways so apple cant eo anything about jailbreaking 6.0.1 because its already out…?

    • Jem1812

      Umm… Because if they release a jailbreak for 6.0.X before 6.1 is released then Apple will patch the exploit in the 6.1 update. The developers would have to look for exploits all over again. This is explained in the article and dozens of comments. Just have some patience.

  • Jairo loaiza

    just realease it now fck

  • filthyjason

    this is about how long it took for the 4S jailbreak to come out, it was some time in late Jan last year I thought

  • chungpham2004


  • jaybeans821

    yeah, now apple wont release 6.1 until august or whenever iphone 5s comes out..ill be angry!!!

  • Chalked

    Hopefully this would make it easier for MyWi to run on iOS 6.x

  • Anthony

    Maybe Apple will release iOS 6.1 on Friday (the 25th), considering they usually release OS’s on Fridays, plus, that will give a couple days to developers to back up/update their devices

  • kids

    is this JB also applies to ipad 4th and mini?

  • red fruit bite

    ios 6.1? Yes, maybe….. but ios 6.1 or even 6.0.1 Jailbreak? I dont think so!
    don’t dares apple……….. dare users not to update instead…goodluck

  • http://www.facebook.com/andy.i.cole.9 Pierce Smith
