Many people are not interested in the hack but just the end result of it. However there are some people who are interested to known about the one that evad3rs recently released, which of course was the untethered jailbreak for iOS 6.

So how did they manage to break the OS and the security behind it? David Wang, otherwise known as Planetbeing, has spoken up and revealed the tricks of the trade that were used to get past the protection of Apple.

The report is not a full technical one with descriptions of exactly what was done, however it does go into some details and it provides you with a peek into the effort that was needed to release it. We don’t have space to repeat everything that he said and so you may wish to check his account to find out just how hard the project was.

It tells of the exploitation of the mobile back up system of Apple to hijacking the Launch Daemon of iOS, and how they made the root file system writable along with modifications to the kernels. Wang tells virtually all with the only restraints being to avoid giving away details about critical components to Apple.
