If you’ve been awaiting the iPhone 5 & iOS 6 untethered jailbreak then you will be well aware of just how tough it has become for developers to find an exploit with the latest OS.
Forget iOS 6, iOS 6.1 untethered jailbreak for iPhone 5 looks even tougher
We’ve seen many jailbreakers explain over Twitter how tough it is to find an untethered iOS 6 jailbreak, however they do continue on. One in particular, renowned iOS hacker pod2g, recently raised hopes by showing some sort of progress with the iOS 6 jailbreak, although he did say it wasn’t easy and had to take a break.
Now comes more bad news by way of iOS 6.1. If you thought that hackers were waiting for iOS 6.1 to be released before unveiling their untethered jailbreak solution then you may be in for a surprise. Today, famed jailbreaker i0n1c tweeted that iOS 6.1 has even tougher security measures in place over iOS 6 and dims hopes of an untethered jailbreak.
Coming from someone who devised the untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.3.2 as well as responsible for jailbreaking the iPad 3 and iOS 5.1, this guy certainly knows what he is talking about so when he says iOS 6 just got tougher to jailbreak, it is likely spot on.
