iOS 6.0, 6.0.1 Untethered Jailbreak warning, avoid Redpois0n site

Under: Apple iPhone, Phone Software
By:Debbie Turner | November 22nd, 2012

The jailbreaking community is on tenterhooks at the moment as the wait goes on for an iOS 6 / 6.0.1 untethered jailbreak. This has provoked a huge amount of debate and discussion online between the many people hoping for an untethered jailbreak for the iPhone 5 and other iOS devices and we’ve been keeping readers informed with all the latest developments. As we continue to wait though, we want to warn readers about a new untethered jailbreak scam, by way of a Redpois0n site.

We’ve cautioned readers several times now about various jailbreaking scams out there and recently told about a convincing-looking greenp0ison/absinthe site page that claimed to have an untethered jailbreak and was fooling a lot of people as it looked so similar to the genuine article. However this turned out to be yet another fake and as a general tip we’d say that you should beware of any site claiming to have an untethered jailbreak and asking for payment for it. Genuine jailbreaks from the likes of the Chronic Dev Team or iPhone Dev team come from people who do this in their own time and who do not charge for it when it releases.

Now another untethered jailbreak scam has surfaced and even though it seems to offer a free jailbreak we want to let readers know to avoid this site at all costs. The redpois0n.net page purports to be by the Chronic Dev Team (in fact it misspells it as the Chrnic Dev Team) and claims to have a RedPois0n RC2 untethered jailbreak for iOS 6 and 6.0.1 for the following devices, the iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad 4, iPad 3, iPad 2, iPad mini and iPod touch 5th generation. Again, this latest scam looks pretty convincing but it is definitely a hoax so please don’t fall for it.

Although this Redpois0n untethered jailbreak page appears to offer the jailbreak free there are posts on forum threads saying that if you try to download the jailbreak you are referred to a survey. There are also cautions that potential jailbreakers should keep away from it before they mistakenly pick up all kinds of horrors. We’ll repeat then, there is still no untethered jailbreak for iOS 6 and 6.0.1 and when/if one does become available it will be publicized in the usual ways at the Chronic Dev Team or iPhone Dev Team websites or at reputable news sites or blogs. Another reliable ways of getting the latest information is through the Twitter accounts of some of the most renowned jailbreakers such as @pod2g, @musclenerd, @planetbeing and @p0sixninja.

The moment we hear anything further about a genuine iOS 6 or 6.0.1 untethered jailbreak we shall of course bring you all the details but until then please be aware of the RedPois0n scam and others that are out there. While we continue to wait patiently, or in the case of many, not so patiently, we’re interested to hear your thoughts on an untethered jailbreak for the iPhone 5. Are you one of those who are eagerly waiting?

    If you think it took so long for the unteathered version of 6 or .01 just imagine how long it will take for a 7 or 7.1 jailbreak. I’m never updating again..

  • Brian H.

    Seriously dude! iDigitalTimes reported this like two weeks ago. Just hang it up until you have some real news. I’m getting do tired of these same old stories getting recycled just cause it was a “slow” news day.

      Not everyone of our readers knows about this and seeing as we have not covered it we thought they should know. Some people get the news straight away and some do not and we are here to cater for all. Thanks for your comment though

      • Max

        …wonder how many of Your Readers may have been exposed to this scam over the past two-weeks since the scam first became public knowledge and the point You decided to inform Your readers?

        If You want to provide a service, try being more pro active and effective.

    • GR

      you are right!

    • edheder

      I know right? I mean here all we really want to know about is the jailbreak. It’s kinda staring to make me mad. Just plays around with readers.

    • Aaron_George

      This is the only website I look at for jailbreak news and didn’t know about this scam until now. If idigitaltimes is so good then go read their posts and stop posting unnecessary complaints.

    • junsang

      dont read it if u dont like it
      how simple

  • Johnny F. Kameron

    come on pod2g and planetbeing and pois0x, iOS 7 is coming out and u guys havn’t found a jalibreak yet :(

    • Wayyy

      You sir are an idiot

  • Fiokjfsno

    Wow you are seriously blogging About nothing every day.

  • Shadra1n

    You guys dont get it … All recent jailbreaks are userland jailbreak and hence can easily be pactched by a software update. So releasing a jb now would mean a newer method and exploit have to be invented for the 6.1 update which is in the corner… So understand the dev guys for delaying it until apple bas pushed enough updates to the ios6 so in that case the jb would last long enough…… And you should also note that finding kernel exploit for userland jb are as difficult as anything… Trust me.. But u guys arent into developing so you think its that easy… It isn’nt cuz i myself work on kernel exploits so i took the time to make u aware and stop pestering rhe guys…….

    I check every day, more than once a day, hoping to learn that the iOS 6 untethered jailbreak is here so that I can upgrade to iOS 6 then to rejailbreak my iPhone. Impatient you say? Doggone straight!

  • Vogonalicious

    Moaning about old news is almost as tedious as moaning about what your gonna do if no jailbreak arrives soon.
    Shut the f**k up and wait like everyone else for it or piss off and buy something else.

    Oh – and by the way – give consideration for people who arent up to date with recent scams- re-posting is the only way to get through to the “i updated and now my phones f***ed” twats.

  • Angelbluebaby

    First off let me begin by saying these people who post to you everytime regarding any jailbreak are taking time out of their lives to assist you. The least you can do is show some compassion and be considerate about it. They cant help that the jailbreak is not out nor help what the news is. If you dont like reading it then stop coming here and find means of getting your phone jailbroken elsewhere. To those who do keep us updated you are extremely appreciated for your time and your efforts and keep up the fantastic job that you do. I understand that these things take time and patience ESPECIALLY if u want them done right ;)

  • B16civic
