Another iOS 6.0.1 iPhone 5 untethered jailbreak scam – Caution

We know that many, many of our readers are hoping to hear news about an untethered iOS 6 /iOS 6.0.1 untethered jailbreak for the iPhone 5 and we would like nothing more than to be able to give you news of the genuine article. However we keep cautioning readers about untethered jailbreak scams as it’s so easy to be sucked in by these hoaxes. Today unfortunately we want to warn readers about another iOS 6.0.1 untethered jailbreak that looks by all accounts to be yet another scam.

We will say again, as we have said many times now, that there is NO iOS 6 / iOS 6.0.1 untethered jailbreak available yet but time and time again we hear of people that have been taken in by fake sites that are only too willing to part unsuspecting potential jailbreakers from their money. The only way we will believe that a true untethered jailbreak for the iPhone 5 and other iOS devices running iOS 6.x is available, is if we hear from some of the renowned names in the jailbreaking community such as @musclenerd, @p0sixninja, @pod2g and @planetbeing. They will no doubt tell the waiting jailbreaking community via Twitter that this much-desired jailbreak is finally ready for a public release.

Another good way of keeping informed is to check the Chronic Dev team and iPhone Dev Team websites for the latest news. The fact that no untethered jailbreak for the iPhone 5 is available yet doesn’t seem to have stopped all types of scams and recently we told about a fake Redp0ison site that claimed to have the untethered jailbreak and looked pretty convincing. Today we have news of another site, EasyUnlockiPhone, that is being reported by pr.com to have a new iOS 6.0.1/6 untethered jailbreak and unlock for the iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and iPad 2.

The Easy Unlock iPhone team claims a new tool for the jailbreak and says that once the jailbreak has been completed users will have the Cydia application installed on their device. We’re not going to link directly to the Easy Unlock site, but we did check it out and this claimed jailbreak will set you back $24.99 and says that it comes with a full 30-day money back guarantee plus lifetime updates and lifetime support. It’s also stated that the jailbreak is easy and there’s an illustrated guide that means the process should take no longer than 5 minutes.

We’ve reminded readers many times before that any site that charges a fee for a jailbreak is highly unlikely to be genuine and until proven otherwise that’s the stance we would take with the Easy Unlock untethered jailbreak for iOS 6.0.1/6. If any of our readers have tried this jailbreak and consider it genuine then we’re open to changing our minds but until we hear otherwise we’d say there’s around a 99% chance that this is yet another scam. We’ll remind you again that the likes of the highly renowned jailbreakers of the Chronic Dev team and iPhone Dev team work on jailbreaks in their own time and do not charge a set price for them.

As always we’ll point out that at Phones Review we cannot recommend jailbreaking your device. However we know that many of our readers enjoy this aspect of owning a smartphone so we’ll continue to bring you news on this. At this moment there’s no sign of an imminent untethered iPhone 5 jailbreak but you can bet that when one does become available you will see it publicized on reputable websites and of course we shall be following the developments and keeping readers up-to-date with this.

For now though it looks as though the long waiting game still has some time to run so at the moment we’d urge, let’s be careful out there! In the meantime we’d like to ask how you feel about the wait for the iOS 6/ 6.0.1 untethered jailbreak and the scams that are out there? Let us know with your comments.

    Should you get credit for typing the same article over and over and over and over and over again?

    Anyone with half a brain knows that any jailbreak will always be free and completely free, no surveys, ads, etc.

    You don’t have to post it over and over again. Damn. The worst part is that you “writers” copy each other’s garbage articles at that.

      Should you get credit for repeating what other’s posted before you? I WILL repeat what MD says below: “…if you don’t like it then here is a thought.. STOP READING IT”

    Longer we wait less donations will dev team or chronic team get while scammer are making profit. It just means this guys need to hurry up and release the jailbreak if there is any or atleast let everybody know the eta if ever it will br release. I say is their loss since all of them are keeping quite and no word yet about any eta. Dev or chronic needs to relize that more scammers more they loose.

  3. TimeRider says:

    If everybody that jailbreaks their iDevice would send each of the 4 ‘real’ developers $1 each, these guys could easily quit their day jobs and work on jailbreaking full time. I for one think it shows a lot of class to work on something this complex on their own time and release it for free to the public. I think everybody should just STFU and wait patiently for them to release it and then do what you can to show your gratitude with donations, praise etc. Also how long these guys take to “do it right” has absolutely no influence on my gratitude and respect for what they have accomplished.

    We’ve benn waiting a long time what Ido to apple instead of jail breaking is refunds I refund I get cash to buy paid apps keep refunding and then you’ll have lots of lots of fun paid apps to play like if this is good

    Why do you keep repeating the same crap over and over again anyone that jailbreaks know they will be free, this site is becoming a joke repeating the same articles just to get a quick buck!

  6. Jdizzle says:

    I say quit warning people because seems these dumbasses will never learn… Jailbreaks are free and most people should know that and also quit trying to hurry the devs before they decide to quit from people being udderly annoying… Btw respect to the guys working on this monster 😛

WE GET IT ALREADY!!! if people are stupid enough to fall for it let them learn! i for one am sick of checking up on the latest news, only to be redirected to the same crap that is written above, with your false headlines! more annoying than the scams themselves!……. how ironic i am now the one being “scammed” lol

  9. I paid for a jailbreak from someother company any it was bogus. it actually sent me redsn0w and some fake iOS. I already had resn0w on my computer, so at that point i realized it was bs and called the bank and they gave me back the money i paid. so the company tried to screw me but i stopped payment and a big FU to them. Sucks i still have a $700.00 iPhone 4S sitting in my closet serving 0 purpose.

    Everyone below me who has done nothing except complain… it is clear all you want to do is give this news posting hell, if you don’t like it then here is a thought.. STOP READING IT. Don’t jump the news because it isn’t what you want to hear, instead try thanking them for even keeping you un-greatful people posted on the current status of the ios 6.0.1 jailbreak. They take time out of their day to post here for you, and not even ONE sincere thanks. I wouldn’t be shocked if they didn’t tell you, cause I know had it beeen me given the news to you, I wouldn’t tell you at all 🙂 For the news staff: YOU ROCK AND KEEP UP THE AMAXING JOB 😉 Let the haters hate 😀
