iOS 6 Jailbreak For 6.0.1, 6.0.2 Achieved For All iDevices, Release Planned For After 6.1

Jailbreak iOS 6 Untethered iPhone 5Since iOS 6 was released this fall, the majority of our readers and viewers have inquired as to a release date for an Untethered iOS 6, and now 6.0.1, 6.0.2 and 6.1, Jailbreak. While there’s currently a Jailbreak available for iOS 6 and 6.0.1, it’s through a tethered version of Redsn0w with limited support for the iPhone 3GS and the A4-based iPhone 4 and fourth-Generation iPod touch.

Aside from today’s news, the latest Jailbreak update came when p0sixninja announce his solo effort to complete a bootROM Jailbreak for A5, A5X, A6 and A6X-powered iDevices (complete details available here). Since p0sixninja’s breaking news, the development of the iOS 6+ Jailbreak has gone underground and the members of the Dev Teams are purposefully keeping details from the public – as stated by pod2g.

During the time that’s passed between the last major Jailbreak update, numerous pessimistic members of the Jailbreak community have suggested that Apple has “won” and iOS 6 will be the death of Jailbreaking, simply because pod2g is an advocate of the “WeWantAnOpeniOS” petition. Clearly far from the truth, the naysayers’ claims are significantly exaggerated and a comment from planetbeing (a highly-skilled iOS security expert and hacker who’s been instramental in the development of numerous Jailbreak solutions) on a reddit post confirms that.

Yeah, I’m not really sure what all the doom and gloom is about. The fact is, I have an untethered iOS 6.0.2 JB running on my iPhone 5 right now. The reasons it’s not released are because 1. releasing it would burn an exploit we want to save for ourselves so we can always get in to look at new firmware and help JB in the future, 2. iOS 6.1 is coming very soon and will likely break a small part of it anyway, there’s no point in sacrificing the many bugs it won’t break.

Anyway, where there are 4+ bugs (that it took to get this to work), there’s gotta be one or two more so while jailbreaking is getting harder, reports of its death are highly exaggerated.

Claiming that he has an Untethered iOS 6.0.2 Jailbreak currently running on his iPhone 5, planetbeing (a trustworthy and reputable source) effectively demolished all negativity from users surrounding the development Untethered iOS 6+ Jailbreak. Additionally, planetbeing reiterated what we at BestTechInfo have now been saying for months: they’re holding off on releasing a Jailbreak to save the exploits for iOS 6.1, which should be released any day now.

Remember, patience is the key when it comes to waiting for a Jailbreak. Looking back, the iPhone 4S was released in October of 2011 and the first Untethered Jailbreak for iOS 5 that included the device was released in January of 2012. It took over three months, which about is about as long as we’ve been waiting for an iOS 6 and iPhone 5 Untethered Jailbreak. Additionally, there are far more devices this time that need to be incorporated into the Jailbreak. Stay tuned for complete coverage on the Untethered Jailbreak for iOS 6, 6.0.1, 6.0.2 and 6.1.
