It is not such a bad thing for people to keep interrogating the hackers, aka security researchers, in regard to the iOS 6 and 6.01 untethered jailbreak for iPhone 5 / 4S. Some Twitter accounts remain silent without giving anything away, pod2g is one such account, but others like that of planetbeing is delivering clues as to what we should expect for the iPhone 5 jailbreak on iOS 6 or 6.01. Most tweets are ignored but some have received answers, and if you study them you’ll notice certain clues as to what we should expect to see in the coming days and weeks.
The image below has recently been posted to Twitter and shows an iPhone 5, which is certainly closer to a jailbreak than a few weeks ago, but the purpose of this tweet had been for planetbeing to explain about a scammer on the App Store. The hacker pointed out they “help make IntelliScreenX“, and someone on the App Store is apparently “ripping off” both users and those behind IntelliScreenX.
One of the most active people on Twitter talking about the possibility of an iOS 6, 6.01 untethered jailbreak is planetbeing, which the tweets are very carefully sent to make sure they don’t give too much away. There had been a number of direct questions about the release date for an iOS 6 / 6.01 untethered jailbreak, which the tweet below revealed it’s a lot closer but “critical pieces” are missing, so until these are fixed it won’t see a public release.
We’ve already touched on the failbreak planetbeing mentioned previously, although seeing new images and tweets showing progress has raised more questions, and some people wonder if we are starting to see much more than a jailbreak. Some users wonder if an early iOS 6 jailbreak is in progress, and could we soon see it released on the iPhone 5, 4S, and other iDevices?
Trying to narrow down a release window for an 6.01 untethered jailbreak — when a number of people quizzed planetbeing about the release window, not a date, for the upcoming iPhone 5/4S jailbreak it seems that a direct answer explained a lot. The tweet below had been a reply after one person asked if we are looking at weeks or months? In a nutshell it seems that even if this were known, “clubs” would come out if this information is shared, so it looks like the answer to that question will stay within a very small circle of people.
Expect the iPhone 5 and 4S iOS 6 jailbreak to release simultaneously — another tweet reveals that the iOS 6/6.01 jailbreak will “probably” arrive on most devices at the same time, which cleared up a few worries about the possibility of an iPhone 5 being favored over the 4S model. This shows us again that there are certainly things to be learned from tweets, even if it’s not the main release details we all want at this time.
Are you using Twitter to find out information about the upcoming iOS 6 untethered jailbreak for iPhone 5 and 4S? We keep an eye on @pod2g and @planetbeing, but we’d love to know if you are following the conversation and learning things from Twitter. Over the past couple of years Twitter has proven to break news before a number of outlets, including main stream news, so you can count on it being one of the first places to reveal that the iOS 6 jailbreak is live. Did you update to iOS 6.01?
