Good news for iPhone users who hate Apple’s Communism: you won’t have to switch to Android. Famous iOS hacker planetbeing confirmed that he has already completed the untethered jailbreak for iPhone 5 running iOS 6. The hacker posted on social site reddit that although the jailbreak is ready, it have not been published to save the exploit for future iOS releases. His iPhone 5 is currently running on a jailbroken version of iOS 6.0.2, which is the latest iOS update for iPhone 5 and compatible iOS 6 devices.
Yeah, I’m not really sure what all the doom and gloom is about. The fact is, I have an untethered iOS 6.0.2 JB running on my iPhone 5 right now. The reasons it’s not released are because 1. releasing it would burn an exploit we want to save for ourselves so we can always get in to look at new firmware and help JB in the future, 2. iOS 6.1 is coming very soon and will likely break a small part of it anyway, there’s no point in sacrificing the many bugs it won’t break.
So those hating the lack of jailbreak on their iPhone 5 will have to be patience, it will be available soon.
