iOS 6 And iPhone 5 Untethered Jailbreak Update And False Information


Today, only minutes ago, pod2g (famed iOS security expert and hacker largely behind the iOS 5.1.1 Untethered Jailbreak) tweeted that everyone who’s interested in an iOS 6 Jailbreak should follow @joshmtucker, as he’s “heavily working on it at the moment”.

However, according to a new development from Musclenerd, the most reliable member of the Jailbreak community, that might not be the case.

Joshua Tucker, not to be confused with Joshua Hill (@p0sixninja) from the Chronic Dev Team, describes himself as an “iOS interface/interaction designer” – not a developer.

Shortly after pod2g recommended that Jailbreakers follow Joshua Tucker, images started propagating Twitter of Tucker and pod2g before the World Wide Jailbreak Convention (#wwjc) with a “Jailbroken” iPhone 5, which are likely fakes.

Of course, while Grant Paul (@chpwn) demonstrated that he could successfully Jailbreak the iPhone 5 on iOS 6 within a day of the device’s release, there’s still no word as to when a utility will be made available to the public, though it won’t come from Tucker.

Update: pod2g updated his followers with a new tweet, which states that an Untethered iOS 6 Jailbreak will “take weeks or months”:


Hopefully additional news pertaining to both the iOS 6 and iPhone 5 Jailbreak will be revealed this weekend during the major Jailbreak conference, which is scheduled to commence tomorrow, September 28th at 9:00am Pacific time (12:00pm Eastern). Stay tuned for complete coverage on the status of the iOS 6 Jailbreak!
