iOS 6 untethered jailbreak hope from pod2g and planetbeing
We know that many readers with the iPhone 5 and other Apple iOS devices have been waiting eagerly for an iOS 6 untethered jailbreak for what seems like far too long now. We’ve been keeping readers informed about the ups and downs, red herrings and scams-a-plenty but so far a release of this jailbreak has eluded us. Some of the most prominent hackers on the iOS jailbreaking scene have been pretty quiet at times but there are some encouraging signs today as pod2g and planetbeing have been tweeting the latest.
We’ve always urged readers to stay away from sites that claim to have jailbreaks and to get the latest genuine news straight from the horses’ mouths so to speak. By that we mean Twitter accounts of some of the most renowned members of the jailbreaking community such as @pod2g, @planetbeing, @p0sixninja and @MuscleNerd, or alternatively from the Chronic Dev Team or iPhone Dev Team websites. We are NOT claiming that the following tweets between planetbeing and pod2g mean that an iOS 6 untethered jailbreak will arrive any day now. However they definitely show that the two are collaborating, seemingly in this direction, although a jailbreak is still not ready for the public.
Yesterday planetbeing tweeted, “Made some nice progress today with @pod2g. I think I’ll try and reward myself with a nap.” Although we hoped this referred to them working on the iOS jailbreak, at this stage we didn’t think it was enough proof to say that to our readers. However pod2g has also been tweeting today and responded, “@planetbeing oh yeah! 2 new vulnerabilities in a day, chance was with us. But we still miss that initial execution code for a public jb.” At this point we feel we can safely say that the two are definitely working together on a jailbreak again, which can only be really encouraging news to the many iOS device owners still waiting hopefully.
Earlier this month we told how planetbeing had tried to dispel the gloom and doom surrounding the iPhone 5 untethered jailbreak and how he confirmed he actually has an untethered iOS 6.0.2 jailbreak running on his iPhone 5 so we do know that this is not an impossible mission. He also explained why it had not seen a public release yet with iOS 6.1 just around the corner and concluded by saying that reports of the death of jailbreaking had been exaggerated. That was a good sign then and today’s news adds a little more encouragement that we shouldn’t give on an iOS 6 untethered jailbreak just yet.
Now that pod2g and planetbeing are lighting up the Twitter airwaves again we hope they will soon be bringing further heartening news about the iOS 6 untethered jailbreak. We’d like to hear what you think of this. Is the news that pod2g and planetbeing are working together on a jailbreak reassuring to you? Perhaps you have some words of encouragement that you’d like to pass on to these eminent members of the jailbreaking community? Let us know by sending us your comments.
