iOS 6 untethered jailbreak takes limelight

By Alan Ng - Oct 11, 2012

It looks like the countdown towards an iOS 6 untethered jailbreak release date is starting to reach fever pitch. The feat hasn’t been achieved yet, but the possibility of a public iOS 6 untethered jailbreak download could be finalized at this week’s Hack in the Box event.

The conference is underway right now over in Malaysia and will continue on until the rest of the day. Security within mobile devices is going to be a key area of discussion during the event, but it looks like talk on an iOS 6 untethered jailbreak may be taking the limelight.

Earlier this week, a video was shown to the watching audience, revealing that a kernal exploit discovery had been made, which paved the way for iOS 6 jailbreak talk as a real possibility. Unfortunately, it looks like those videos have been removed by the uploader, but one piece of information to share with you lies in the fact that there appears to be two main teams of ‘hackers’ who are thought to be hard at work on cracking the code towards an untethered jailbreak.

While it’s good in the fact that there is more chance of an untethered jailbreak being realized, it also raises the possibility of further delays, as the two teams battle it out for bragging rights on who gets to release the software first. For now though, the waiting game goes on and there’s nothing else that can be done except wait for a public download.

If you are patiently waiting for an untethered iOS 6 jailbreak at all costs, you may want to keep an eye on the Twitter account of Chpwn, who appears to have come closest to unlocking Apple’s security – so far though, he isn’t releasing it for public download.

Will we have an untethered jailbreak before the end of the week, or are you not so hopeful? We just hope that none of you have fell for the various scams that are still in circulation.

    It doesn’t say we WILL get it at the end of the week I think in all likelihood we are still a few weeks away yet, last news was all they have is “failbreaks” meaning cydia doesn’t run properly and crashes when launched which it why they won’t release it till its stable

    Awesome, so we are going to get it at the end of the week.

  • Apple Empire

    Hopefully they release it soon. I can’t wait to get a taste of the good work on this untethered jailbreak.
