iOS 6 jailbreak proof for iPhone 5 given time

By Daniel Chubb - Dec 12, 2012

Hearing that an iOS 6 untethered jailbreak will arrive for iPhone 5 / 4S within this month would’ve been what everyone wanted in the jailbreaking community, although most people are skeptical thanks to the solid date coming from an individual that’s not associated with the well-known developer teams. We touched on the apparent iOS 6 untethered jailbreak date a couple of days ago, which is due in 11 days time and this article included a few tweets from respected Joshua Hill and the unknown person behind Dream JB. Reactions to this news were mixed and included those that said we should wait until all the facts are out, and others that really didn’t believe it.

The iOS 6 jailbreak is said to be for iPhone 5, 4S, iPad, and a number of other Apple devices running the latest software, which is currently at iOS 6.0.1. The jailbreak proof due within the next 24 hours is also mentioned in the tweet below that had been made by the official Dream JB account. They also point out that the Dec 22nd release date is not a joke, although I’m sure most people are hoping that this really reveals something solid considering the long wait already.

Within the last couple of hours we also saw another tweet from the same Twitter account, and this time a rough time is given for iOS 6 untethered jailbreak proof. We might be waiting until next week for the software to release, but evidence has been promised to arrive within the next 24 hours. The tweet below explains that the first finished iOS 6 untethered jailbreak will be backed up with proof before “8PM EST” on the 12th. Will you be following their website at or Twitter account for this evidence?

What would you class as real proof for an iOS 6 jailbreak for iPhone 5? Most people in the jailbreaking community know that the iPhone 5 and 4S include better security, which paired with iOS 6 has made it hard for well-known hackers to unlock for public consumption. We’ve also been informed by the likes of p0sixninja that most videos revealing evidence can be proven as fake, so we wonder what type of information will be used by Dream JB as proof that a real iOS 6 jailbreak works on the iPhone 5, 4S, and other iDevices?

Feel free to hit the comments with what you’d like to see in the next few hours showing real proof? It is worth noting that the latest claim isn’t going to be a bootrom jailbreak, so when iOS 6.1 arrives it might be a good idea not to update to the latest software and in fact most jailbreakers gave iOS 6.0.1 a miss as well.
