iOS 6 untethered jailbreak for certain iPhone 5 advantage

By Updated on

Users wanting to see the iOS 6 untethered jailbreak land for iPhone 5 see an advantage to releasing now, rather than holding off to a later date in the hope that it helps to stop Apple patching things so quickly. Around 4 days ago we touched on the possibility of the untethered iOS 6 jailbreak arriving on the iPhone 5 after the next update, which might be iOS version 6.01 or 6.1, although the majority of feedback we received pointed to a desire for something sooner rather than later.

PR readers point out that if there’s an iPhone 5 jailbreak finished already, and certain hackers are using tactics by waiting until the first iOS 6 update, then what if Apple closes exploits with another update? Most people understand the effort it must take to develop an untethered iOS 6 jailbreak, especially for the new iPhone 5, but would rather see the software released to public as soon as possible,

A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush – this is an old saying that basically means it could be better to have something lesser now with a definite advantage, rather than the chance of something better later that might end in nothing. We’ve seen those that are into jailbreaking use this exact phrase, and believe if certain hackers have the iOS 6 untethered jailbreak already then they should release it for iPhone 5 right away.

In the meantime we’ve seen a number of press statements released by certain companies offering an iOS 6 jailbreak for a price, which claims to unlock your iPhone 5 for a small sum. These are mostly fake, well all that we’ve seen are, and you should be warned about parting with any money for an iOS 6 jailbreak. It isn’t a good idea, and in fact you should always remember that any jailbreak is at your own risk.

The legal battle for an iOS 6 jailbreak on iPhone 5 and iPad – this week has also seen some major news surrounding DMCA exemptions for jailbreaking an iPad, and it now seems that this is not allowed anymore although you can jailbreak your iPhone 5 when the possibility arrives. You can read more about this in our earlier article.

Are you happy to wait for the iOS 6 untethered jailbreak until the time is right, or should it arrive as soon as finished?

    • Shane

      it is people like you that make people like chronic devteam and iphone dev team not want to release things quickly… also ALL of them website/videos are fakes. Who wants to pay $24.95 for a jailbreak software that looks dodgy as hell to begin with when chronic dev team and iphone dev team both release their jailbreaks for free

  • Gangster

      This “release soon, as apple could patch it in the next update” makes absolutely no sense. You do know you don’t have to update to the lastest firmware just because apple releases it, right? Then stop being impatient motherf****rs and don’t update as soon as the new update comes out, simples. That way, if the jb works with it, you get updates and a jb. If doesn’t you’ll still have a jb for ios6.0. So where’s the problem? Its free, be grateful, be patient, be happy. And stop nagging! They don’t owe you sh*t, nor do they make money to live of from it. The day they decide they had enough of the moaning and begging, we’re all going to suffer.

    • harrassee

      U know what? I want it now too but you are really annoying. No one wants to read your posts.

  • Gangster

    Look on YouTube iphone5 jailbreak working on the iphone5 cydia running app’s working why is that why is that pod2g and devteam

  • Atwcorp

    Is there a possibility that apple has implemented a auto update to remove any jailbreak software ? Maybe we should Wait till iOS update so we can see what apple will patch and that will help with any bugs in the current jailbreak they are working on
    P.s
    Iphone 5 has lots of hidden features accessed threw dial pad

    • EZ-now

      That’s a very good question and it implies that waiting is better than rushing. If there is no auto-update and there is already a JB for ios 6 then even if apple closes the exploits down, just don’t update, the JB could be released and so long as you didn’t rush to update then you would still be able to use the JB.
      If there is an auto-update then not showing apple the exploits before that is discovered would enable the JB teams to try and shut down the auto-update and include that protection in the user land software.
      If there is an auto-update and apple closes the exploits then there would have been nothing that anyone could have done anyway.
      On the face of it, as much as I like everyone else cannot wait until the JB is developed fully and released, it seems that prudence says wait.
      I also know that the connectivity bugs on iOS 6 would be nice to have them ironed out in an official update. I regularly have to hit airplane mode and then turn comms back on to stop hanging page loads in safari.

    Due to getting constant calls (8+ times a day) that I can’t stop, regardless of “Do Not Call List,” I need iBlacklist back on my phone now. I’m cool with waiting until they know the jailbreak works, but not waiting for Apple. Due to this, this is my last iPhone. I’m done playing games waiting for jailbreaks.

    Regardless what is decided, thanks to everyone involved in the jailbreak community for their hard work. If it weren’t for you, I’d never have gotten an iPhone (3Gs at the time) in the first place and I loved the enriched experience.

  • Dean

    If no jb then the iPad 3 will be my last device from apple. Window 8 tablets are beter devices.

  • justkait

    it would be nice as soon as its finished

  • iDeron1983

    Im usually paitient but right bout now u would like and untethered jaibreak

  • AchillesTheGreat

    I almost wonder if people who keep pressing for release don’t work for APPL. I’m sure the exploits won’t be closed in the next update. This happened once already where they reased the jailbreak the same day apple released an update (obviously unaware of jailbreaking release) and they had not closed the vulnerabilities. I say wait, please wait. Ios 6 is pretty bad in terms of buggy firmware, no one on this planet will be sticking to it long, jailbreak or no jailbreak

  • Lobo1911

    We need it as soon as it is done!!!!! Apple probly won’t patch the jailbreak because they never patched the 5.1.1 jailbreak so why would they patch a 6.0 jailbreak

  • CCjh

    where can i jailbreak my ipod touch 4g ?

  • Chris tian

    A S A P !!!!!!!

  • Kevin.

    I like how people were expecting a public jailbreak so early. Why upgrade if you know that given iOS 5′s circumstances, it would be the same for iOS 6? Stop demanding and be patient; reliable jail breaks are always free – if you jailbreak, you should know that.

    The pressure should be on the Tweak and Theme developers. None of the tweaks that make jail breaking fundamental are even optimized for the new iOS. Installous, SBSettings, and DreamBoard, fix these if anything.

  • Cobra

    release it now we cant wait any longer november almost started and my 4s on ios 6 please release jailbreak or downgrade tool then we can switch back to ios 5.1.1

  • mq1193

    The Dev Team is smart enough to know when the best time for releasing the jailbreak will be.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=505853559 Tom Mogavero

    please let me know when the untethered is ready

  • Jenny

    A jailbreak is available when 5s comes out. Keep waiting. Imagine no jb at all. You might as well jump ship.

  • Rahid Uddin

    i need for 4s ringtones

  • LikeASir

    Can you guys speak english please?

  • R0tten

    Idiots. Wait for the damn jailbreak.

    I want to jailbreak in the future. Play the game of cat and mouse. That’s what apple desires.

  • tralalalalalala

    I WANT MY UNTETHERED JAILBBREAK FOR MY IPHONE 5 NOW NOW NOW!!!!

    • JFlynn

      Come on… Patience for a good jailbreak.

  • Terry

    There are some significant flaws in 6.0 that badly need to be addressed. By the nature of whatever exploit was found, they’ll know if it is likely to remain there after the next update or not, assuming apple isn’t notified of the vulnerability by an early release. Bottom line: they are right to wait for a less buggy iOS build before releasing a jailbreak to go with it. It’s possible we’ll be stuck for à while with whatever version gets a public jailbreak, and I’d rather it be as bug-free as possible.
