Pod2g had stated that he wouldn’t work on a iOS 6 Jailbreak… However, he probably changed his mind and posted on Reddit (Reddit Link) that he would start working on it…
Even though, Planetbeing commented that he has already jailbroke his iPhone 5 (untethered), but he also declares the reasons that he hasn’t released the Jailbreak yet.
Here is Planetbeing’s comment:
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.
This is not stuff I want to say over Twitter with 140 characters because I’m afraid of starting some sort of riot, but I like the smaller /r/jailbreak community more.
