The Chronic Dev Team said last week that the untethered jailbreak for the iPhone 5 and 4S was nowhere near and that those wanting to jailbreak their iPhones would have to wait months. Joshua Hill, a member of the Chronic Dev Team, said on Twitter that this was due to the strict protection Apple had enforced on iOS 6.
iPhone 5 iOS 6 untethered jailbreak just 2 weeks away
However a new team have come onboard and they say that they will be able to release the jailbreak for iOS 6 devices like the iPhone 5, iPhone 4S and iPads by 22nd December.
AutoWorldNews states that the team of jailbreakers that go by the name of Dream JB, chose this day as according to Mayans this is the day when the world will end. So let’s hope it doesn’t as people will then be able to jailbreak their iPhone 5 finally.
The team have set up their own website on which they will announce any news of the jailbreak and they are on Twitter and have passed news of the jailbreak to media sites which include the Design Times and Jailbreak Daily already. They say that they are in no way associated with the Chronic Dev Team, or in fact any other jailbreaking team.
They seem to be full of confidence in being able to release the jailbreak to the public in just 2 weeks. Some other people have claimed to have had the jailbreak for the iPhone 5, however these proved to be nothing more than scams.
Some websites have been asking as much as $600 in fees and of course people are at risk of not being able to get help from stores if they have tried to jailbreak their device and end up bricking it.
Some developers have had doubts as to whether a non-Dev Team would be able to jailbreak iOS 6; however the Dream JB team insist that they have the untethered iOS 6 jailbreak and that they are for real.
One member of the team said that it was very disappointing to find how egotistical the community was. Members of the Dev Team had said that it would be impossible for anyone outside of the team to jailbreak iOS 6. The Dream JB team say that this is ridiculous and finished by saying that the iOS 6 untethered jailbreak would be released on 22nd December.
