After weeks of silence from the numerous iOS 6 developer teams that are strenuously trying to provide an untethered iOS 6 jailbreak for the iPhone 5 and other A6 based devices, it looks like a breakthrough may have been made. One unknown team is claiming to show a working iPhone 4S jailbreak on iOS 6.0.1, a jailbreak which they say will also work with A6 devices like the iPhone 5.
Unsurprisingly though, there are no public download links yet, which is obviously disappointing for the masses that are looking for the jailbreak. We’re used to seeing releases from the likes of the Chronic Dev Team and the iPhone Dev Team, but this latest claim has come from an unknown team called the Arab Dev Team, or the ARB Dev Team for short.

They have provided a video, apparently showing a working iPhone 4S jailbreak on iOS 6.0.1. We see the settings menu showing the version in question and then supposed evidence of a working Cydia store as well. We say supposed, as there has been quite a lot of feedback regarding the jailbreak over on Twitter – most of it negative.
Many consumers are already claiming the video to be a complete fake, while p0sixNinja has also been giving his thoughts on the video on his Twitter account as well – as you can see in some of his messages above. As far as we’re aware, this is the first time that the ARB Dev Team have emerged into the limelight, but it seems like a lot of people are already calling them fakes on their alleged success.
If there is any truth to the software, then it could mean that we’re one step closer to an iPhone 5 jailbreak – assuming that their theory about the jailbreak working on A6 devices is correct. For now though, they need to release the links if they are going to prove the doubters wrong. So many times we see claims being made, but nothing is ever released which is just further eye candy for the community.
Watch the video below and let us know what you make of it. Is this real optimism that a A6 jailbreak will be released soon, or is it just another fake like the rest?
