Just last week the Chronic Dev Team said that they were nowhere close to the jailbreak for the iPhone 5 and iPhone 4S on iOS 6. Joshua Hill who is a member of the team said through Twitter that it was taking so long due to the protection that Apple had put in iOS 6, which was ridiculous.
Dream JB: iPhone iOS 6 untethered jailbreak release date set for Dec 22nd
But it seems that the jailbreak could be only a couple of weeks away and owners of the iPhone 5 and other devices may be able to jailbreak their devices on 22nd December.
A team of jailbreakers with the name Dream JB say that they will release the iOS 6 untethered jailbreak on this day, which according to Mayans will be the day on which the world ends. So fans of jailbreaks had better keep their fingers crossed it doesn’t.
The Dream JB team has up a website and this is where they will reveal news of the jailbreak along with Twitter, where they have passed news of the untethered jailbreak to media websites such as Jailbreak Daily and Design Times. The team wants it to be known that they are not associated with the Chronic Dev Team in anyway, or indeed any other team.
They are confident that they will be able to release the iPhone 5 iOS 6 untethered jailbreak in just two weeks. In the past few weeks people have said they have the jailbreak, but they have turned out to be scams.
Some people have been asking for fees as much as $600 through websites for the jailbreak and people of course cannot get help from the store they bought their device from if they end up turning their iPhone into a brick.
There are some developers who say that they don’t believe a team not associated with the Chronic Dev Team could jailbreak iOS 6, but Dream JB are insisting that they do in fact have a the untethered jailbreak for iOS 6.
A member of the team spoke out and said that he was disappointed to find out just how egotistical the jailbreaking communty was. The Dream JB team say that it is ridiculous for them to say that jailbreaking is impossible outside of the Dev Team and went on say that the untethered jailbreak would be out on 22nd December 2012.
