Pod2G, the guy who a couple of days ago was saying that he isn’t working on a iOS 6 jailbreak solution, said yesterday that a jailbreak solution for the latest version of Apple’s operating system will be developed in a few weeks / months. The statement came as a response to all impatient users who kept asking him about iOS 6 jailbreak on Twitter.
JailbreakCon takes place this weekend in San Francisco, an international conference where the hackers who are developing jailbreak solutions for iDevices are making various presentations regarding iOS’ security and exploits. Developers who create tweaks and apps for Cydia will attend JailbreakCon, too, as well as regular users, and everybody is expecting to see impressive stuff in San Francisco, especially an iOS 6 jailbreak solution.
It was rumored over the past few months that the freshly-launched iPhone 5 will be jailbroken live at the conference, there are some chances for this to happen, but, even so, a jailbreak solution for this terminal and iOS 6 will most likely be launched weeks after, probably after iOS 6.0.1 will be made available for download.
The iOS 6 update rolled out last Wednesday, so there wasn’t enough time for the development of a viable jailbreak and, in my opinion, the iOS 6 jailbreak will not come so easily, as Apple changed a lot in the last version of its mobile operating system.
A few days ago Pod2G and posixninja said that Apple made a major mistake in iOS 6, probably talking about an exploit that would allow them to develop the jailbreak, but we are talking about a process that requires a lot of time.
Summing up, the iOS 6 jailbreak is on its way, but you will have to be patient and give the hackers time to get a proper solution going.
In case you are wondering, you can’t downgrade from iOS 6 to iOS 5.1.1, if you own an iPhone 4S, iPad 3, or iPad 2, without having the SHSH for iOS 4.x and 5.x. Still you can downgrade your iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 or iPod Touch 4G, but only if you previously saved the SHSHs and blops.
