Since the launch of iOS 6 and the iPhone 5 there have been so many people waiting on an untethered jailbreak. There will also be plenty of people who will have received an iPhone 5 or other new iOS device for Christmas and they too will also be asking whether there is any untethered iOS 6 jailbreak available.
It probably comes as no surprise that the iOS community have grown restless with the lack of a jailbreak for iOS 6 and the trouble is that once you become accustomed to using a jailbroken device with all the tweaks that are available, a stock device just doesn't feel right. The casual swipe to open SBSettings, having a Notification Center on the lock screen, enhanced messaging functions or multitasking switchers are just some of the things that many iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users have been missing since upgrading to iOS 6.
Apple have really stepped up their game with iOS 6 and this release is proving to be a very tough nut for the jailbreak community to crack. To make things even worse, i0n1c believes that the upcoming iOS 6.1 is going to be even more tough to exploit. All is not lost though and it seems like Planetbeing is still working on putting all the pieces of the puzzle together. MuscleNerd of the iPhone Dev team has warned against updating to iOS 6.0.2 if you are still holding out hope for a jailbreak solution for iOS 6.0.1.
At the moment there is no untethered iOS 6 and iPhone 5 jailbreak available but you will probably find lots of fake jailbreak tools on the market so we advise you to avoid these at all costs. Until one of the respected jailbreak developers actually approves a jailbreak don't be fooled into buying anything. If you see a jailbreak release for iOS 6 be sure to check back with us because if it is legitimate we will have it covered here.
If you are one of the many that owns a pre A5 device such as the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and iPod touch 4G, you can still get a tethered jailbreak using Redsn0w or Sn0wbreeze but for anyone with an A5 device we are afraid there is no good news to report and we suspect that we won't have a jailbreak for iOS 6 until after iOS 6.1 is released.Read more...
