Over the week, news media outlet Digital Journal pointed out what is apparently the first iOS 6 untethered jailbreak for the iPhone 5 for public release. DJ point towards EasyiPhoneUnlock.net who boasts a simple tool to both unlock and jailbreak a number of iOS device running software up to iOS 6.1. This includes the iPhone 5, 4S, 4 and 3GS, along with the iPad 2, running up to iOS 6.1.
iPhone 5 & iOS 6 untethered jailbreak guide supposedly released
DJ explans that one the iPhone 5 iOS 6 untethered jailbreak solution is applied, it will install Cydia on your device. This will allow you to install non-App Store apps as well as carry out other customisations usually restricted on non-jailbroken iPhones.
Investigating the iPhone unlock service’s website, we see that it boasts having jailbroken over 250,000 iPhones to date, since the site’s inception back in 2008. It also comes with a money-back guarantee so in case you can’t jailbreak your iPhone 5 or 4S you will get a refund.
Generally I steer clear of any iPhone jailbreak websites that ask for a fee. That said, the site says the whole untethered jailbreak process takes only 5 minutes to complete so I will be giving it a go. Check back here later today for my findings and whether you should open your wallet to them or not.
