We’ve some great news.
planetbeing and MuscleNerd of the evad3rs team has just confirmed that it is safe to upgrade to iOS 6.1, which was seeded an hour back.
Please check Update 2 before you update your iOS device to iOS 6.1.
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.
We’ve some more news on the jailbreak front. David Wang aka planetbeing of the iPhone Dev team has just tweeted that they’ve made a lot of progress in the last few days and the future is looking bright for jailbreaking.
It was only a few days back that he and pod2g had discovered two new vulnerabilities.
Last week hacker/developer pod2g released his first app in the App Store—podDJ—and today via his blog Cyril has taken the wraps off his new venture: 2G Lab. The consulting group will be focused on development (app development I would assume) and security. It’s not hard to see how someone with his pedigree would be in high demand.
I really like the thinner and lighter iPhone 5 with the 4-inch display, but there have been many occasions when I’ve missed not being able to jailbreak it.
When jailbreak developers release new tweaks such as Auxo – an awesome replacement to the app switcher, which would have been perfect on iPhone 5’s taller 4-inch display, I miss jailbreaking even more.
Some members of the jailbreak dream team namely Cyril a.k.a pod2g, MuscleNerd and David Wang a.k.a planetbeing that have released popular jailbreak tools like Absinthe and Redsn0w, spoke at the Hack in the Box security conference in Kuala Lumpur yesterday.
They provided some more details about the eagerly anticipated iOS 6 jailbreak.
