#gr1mra1n iOS 6 Untethered Jailbreak For iPhone 5 Raises Hopes Unnecessarily

By  | 

Everyone who is waiting for the release of an untethered jailbreak for the iPhone 5 and iOS 6 thought that it had appeared when a hacker made a cheeky comment on Twitter.

#gr1mra1n is not sign of iOS 6 untethered jailbreak for iPhone 5 after all

@p0sixninja got a lot of replies from fans asking about the jailbreak thanks to the fact that his tweet contained the words “rain” and number swaps which often refer to a jailbreaking tool. However hopes of the jailbreak being released were dashed as it seems that the hacker was just trolling.

On the same day another developer posted that the jailbreak for the iPhone 5 and iOS 6 were looking grim. He also said that he was now working on something a lot larger.

People picked up on the use of “grim” in the posting “#gr1mra1n”, with some mistaking the message to be a sign that the jailbreak was coming, others just saw the sarcasm in it.

So the developer happens to be working on something larger than jailbreaking the iPhone 5 and iOS6. Is there anything bigger than the jailbreak right now?

For the time being there is no jailbreak for the iPhone 5 or iOS 6, but progress is being made and it is just a matter of time before it is released. If you are the owner of an iPhone that is jailbroken, you might want to avoid making the update to iOS 6 for the time being.
