It was reported yesterday that the Dream JB team were to release the untethered jailbreak for iOS 6 and the iPhone 5. A lot of people were very sceptical that this would happen, despite the Dream JB team seeming to be legit and commendable. The hacker however turns out to be yet another fake as the link offered to the jailbreak takes people to a Rick-rolling video.
iPhone 5 & iOS 6 untethered jailbreak release an elaborate scam
Dream JB promised to upload a video showing Cydia running on the iPhone 5, which he said was proof that he had the jailbreak. Jailbreakers have said that the video is in fact fake and it has been edited. One eagle eye spotted that the time on the device in the video changes erratically through the video, which does suggest that it has been spliced together. You can check out the video for yourself.
Dream Jailbreak posted on Twitter saying “jailbreakers what you see may not always be true. Please follow the dev team members for true and meaningful updates in the JB world”.
Following the Rick-roll Dream JB sends the message to other jailbreak hoaxers, saying that this should be a lesson to current and future jailbreak fakers. He said that it perhaps wouldn’t stop fakers in the future, but it will make all the users of iOS 6 who got excited to slow down and think whether a jailbreak was real or not.
He said that his project had been an experiment and he went on to say that more than 20,000 people had started following him on Twitter, while his website attracted over 300,000 unique visitors. He insists that others who are interested in jailbreaking should only take the word of the Dev Team and finished by saying that the experiment was nothing more than what he had called it, a dream.
