iOS 6 untethered jailbreak for iPhone 5 status update in 2013

We’re now in the middle of January and there is still no untethered iOS 6 jailbreak for the iPhone 5 that consumers are desperately waiting for. Apple finally seems to have kept hackers at bay since the release of their latest iPhone last year, although we do have some encouraging news for those continuing to hold out, courtesy of two key members of the underground community.

As it stands, we’re still no closer to having a public download for the elusive untethered iOS 6 jailbreak, but at last there appears to be signs of the situation improving. The wait may be a frustrating one for the average consumer, but you should be aware that work is still ongoing daily in attempt to break Apple’s code.

Planetbeing and Pod2g are two well known figures in the jailbreak scene and it has been confirmed that they are now working together to provide a working iOS 6 untethered jailbreak for fans as soon as possible. A Tweet sent out by Planetbeing over the weekend suggests that ‘progress’ has been made thanks to the two of them working together on the jailbreak.

A further Tweet by Pod2g reveals that two new vulnerabilities were discovered in a single day, however he also admitted that both of them are missing an ‘initial code execution’ which is needed to provide the public with a jailbreak. It’s obviously not the news you were hoping to hear, but it’s encouraging that progress is still ongoing to get the jailbreak out.

Could we possibly get to the stage where an iOS 6 untethered jailbreak still isn’t out and Apple steps up plans to release another iPhone in 2013, with the iPhone 5 security still in tact? It has never happened before and it will be interesting to see if this is playing on the minds of hackers as a real possibility.

How long are you prepared to wait for a jailbreak?
