iOS 6 Untethered Jailbreaking Updates

On November 14, 2012

iOS 6 has been around for quite some time but there has yet to be a working jailbreak tool for the common user. All that there is at the moment is a failbreak which requires you to have a developer account with Apple. This poses a big problem because the following method is expensive and thus unable to be used by just about everyone.

As described by David aka planetbeing, he mentioned that some of the few exploits needed to make the jailbreak untethered is missing and thus it is still not possible to get a working untethered jailbreak. However, as far as his failbreak is concerned, it is working well with him describing the jailbreak as stable. There are still bugs that appear every now and then that he needs to settle but he mentioned that the toughest part is usually the initial jailbreaking but that apparently was covered.

All in all, the exact date of an untethered jailbreak has yet to be known but David mentioned that he along with the other hackers are doing their best to get it done. In fact, he mentioned that that he would have released a tool ASAP if it was already available.
