It seems that the iOS 6 jailbreak is about to release for the iPhone 5 from more well known hackers, and while the tethered option is pretty much completed you can expect the untethered iOS 6 jailbreak for iPhone 5 to arrive soon. Other users have decided to downgrade from iOS 6, which would be for a number of reasons not necessarily for the lack of iPhone 3GS/4/4S jailbreaking options, but rather to do with the problems some people feel the latest Apple software has.
We heard early on this week about so-called pros being a little baffled with the iOS 6 untethered jailbreak for iPhone 5, and those users that love to open up their devices are wondering when the release date will be? More seasoned jailbreakers explained that the team of hackers need to be left to do their job, be it business or fun, and knowing how long it took for an untethered iPhone 4S jailbreak to arrive should mean that we all need to be a little more patient, which is understandably hard for some people that love the freedom a jailbreak provides.
The untethered iOS 6 jailbreak is much harder – we’ve already heard from pod2g in regard to jailbreaking the iPhone 5 and other iOS 6 devices, which are said to be much harder where an iOS 6 untethered jailbreak is concerned, but it is expected to arrive within a matter of “weeks“. This is thanks to Apple making the security a lot better on the latest software, and this would include all iOS 6 devices and new hardware like the iPod touch 5G.
One recent tweet confirmed that some progress has been made and that tweaks are working on the iPhone 5 after a kernel exploit, which means the iOS 6 tethered iPhone 5 jailbreak is pretty much a done deal. You can see that tweet in the image below, which a number of people responded to on Twitter with queries like the chance of this iPhone 5 jailbreak seeing a release in its current form, or would they have to wait for a full untethered iOS 6 jailbreak? Planetbeing explained that they would try for a few more days on an untethered first.
It is clear iPhone 5 users want the jailbreak to release right away, although planetbeing continues to explain on Twitter why it is best to wait, which can be seen in another tweet below after a number of people pushed for further details and reasons why a download couldn’t come sooner.
Are you happy to wait for the iOS 6 / iPhone 5 untethered jailbreak? It is clear we are not far away from a launch, and also just as clear that those making this unlock happen are not going to be pushed into releasing a rushed version.
