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.

It isn’t a good idea, and in fact you should always remember that any jailbreak is at your own risk.
