Pod2G Does Not Work On Untethered Jailbreak for iOS 6
Users who are waiting for untethered jailbreak for iOS 6, had a big disappointment today. According to a tweet from respected hacker Pod2g, he is not working on breaking the latest generation of Apple operating system at the moment.
As you may know, developers implement the new OS jailbreak by reverse engineering. The process of creating the exploit starts immediately after the release of the public version of the firmware and this is the main reason why the tools to hack iPhone and iPad come with a delay. Also immediately after the release of the new Apple firmware Musclenerd tweeted about iOS 6 jailbreak possibility and suggestions. Experience shows that on average, for the development of a public version of the new OS jailbreak takes one to two months (iOS 6 out September 19). However, the message from the hacker of Chronic Dev Team means that the untethered jailbreak for iOS 6 can linger.
At the moment the iOS 6 jailbreak can be done only on devices with A4 processor chip. About the possibility to hack the firmware using Redsn0w 0.9.13dev4 tweeted MuscleNerd right after official iOS 6 release. This build allows tethered jailbreak iOS 6 for iPhone 4, iPod touch 4G and iPhone 3GS.
Responding to questions from different people about the timing of the appearance of untethered jailbreak for iOS 6, hacker Pod2g said that now he was doing his own project, but does not rule out his involvement in the creation of an exploit in the future. In particular, he plans to discuss the issue at WWJC 2012 (World Wide Jailbreak Convention). Developers and users of jailbroken tweaks for iOS devices will gather in the center of South San Francisco in San Francisco (CA) on September 29.
Last week, the hacker and developer of apps for Cydia Grand Paul (Chpwn) announced that it managed to jailbreak iPhone 5. Photos confirming breaking new smartphone running iOS 6, . It is not known whether this jailbreak detached, and when to expect the public version of the exploit.
