iOS 6 Jailbreak Progress Update

iOS 6 Jailbreak

The jailbreak dream team continues to make progress developing a jailbreak for iOS 6. David Wang a.k.a planetbeing has just tweeted that he has managed to get Cydia tweaks to work on his jailbroken iPhone 5.

planetbeing had managed to jailbreak iPhone 5 on the same day it went on sale.

planetbeing tweeted:

Upgraded the #failbreak with a kernel exploit so tweaks actually work on iPhone 5. 😀 Almost a full tethered JB, though need dev account.

planetbeing goes on to explain why the failbreak is necessary:

These exploits are valuable for discovering new ones in the future, so it’s nice to keep them and release only the good ones.

Few days back planetbeing had revealed that they had couple of kernet exploits, which could be used for the jailbreak. “We still have a few tricks up our sleeves,” Wang said.

“It’s very engrossing. It’s kind of like doing a very complicated Sudoku or a crossword but it’s like 10 times harder. It’s just entertaining to be able to use your brain in that way. It’s really the only reason I do it.” 

It remains to be seen how long it will take for the jailbreak dream to release a tethered or untethered jailbreak for iOS 6.
