The popular front jailbreak hackers, Planetbeing, claims to be in possession of the version of iOS 6.0.2 untethered jailbreak and explains, in a comment on Reddit, why has not yet been publicly released.
Planetbeing was one of the key elements of the world of the jailbreak in the early days, and was one of the creators of ultrasn0w which is a tool for editing iPhone 4. Now part of “iPhone Dev Team”.
iClarified reported that Reddit, in response to the negative comments made about the ability to jailbreak iOS 6.0.x circulating on the Internet in recent days and specifically wants to put an end to the doubts cast by pod2g with the creation the tag # weWantAnOpenIOS on Twitter.
I’m not sure what caused this whole “death and destruction” [circulating on the internet about the state of the work on jailbreak].Personally I have a iOS 6.0.2 jailbreak, depending on my iPhone 5 at this moment. The reasons for which has not yet been released are as follows:
- Drop it now would mean burning an exploit that we want to preserve for the future, so we can use it directly on the new firmware, and make the longest JB
- iOS 6.1 coming very soon on our devices, and there is no reason to sacrifice so many bugs, and some of the work carried out to find them
In any case, there are more than 4 exploits (which serve for the correct operation of the jailbreak untethered) available, and someone else for now unused. While it is true that perform the jailbreak is becoming increasingly complex, the other to the news about his death are greatly exaggerated.
Moreover the same pod2g had reported yesterday of utterances are very similar to those of Planetbeing. The fury of blogging, and the international press, has raised a hornet’s nest certainly avoidable, but on the other hand we can now call ourselves quite sure: there will be a jailbreak, and is close to its release.
