By  | 

The wait for the untethered jailbreak for iOS 6 continues and people should be very wary of searching for a download to jailbreak their device. Two sources at this time claim to offer the jailbreak for the iPhone 5 and these have been exposed as scams.

iPhone 5 iOS 6 untethered jailbreak solutions pop up

Of course installing software that is unofficial could be dangerous and two individuals currently claim that they offered the jailbreak for iOS 6 for the iPhone 5. However one iPhone Dev Team member has criticized these solutions and says there is no jailbreak out yet.

JHerthop had been asking for money towards the jailbreak and of course some people have sent it. On his Twitter account he did say that he would refund money, however as yet there has been no proof of him having done so. The individual does seem to be sorry for his actions; this however cannot be said of the other individual who goes by the name of Defiant6 in Twitter.

This user claims he also has the untethered jailbreak for iOS 6 and he says that he wants $500 for it. He uploaded a screenshot which is said to show the jailbreak working on the iPod Touch 5g. However this has been photoshopped badly and editing errors can be seen. Defiant6 went all defensive on Twitter and directed people who called him a fake, with abuse.

This proves that some people will go to any lengths when it comes to jailbreaking the iPhone and iOS 6. So be very careful of whom you hand money over to, as at this moment there is no untethered jailbreak for iOS 6 and iPhone 5.
