iPhone iOS 6 Untethered Jailbreak In Action, Public Release Date Unknown

By  | 

A video has popped up online which suggest that an iPhone running iOS 6 has been successfully jailbroken. The video has given a lot of encouragement to fans of jailbreaks and the iPhone 5 that it might not be too long before the jailbreak is ready for its public release.

Of course there is nothing to say that this is the real deal and the video could in fact turn out to be a fake (see it below). The video comes courtesy of the ARB Dev Team and at the moment the iOS 6 untethered jailbreak hasn’t been made available to the public. In the video the device is said to be the iPhone 4S and it is running the untethered jailbreak mentioned.

When the device is jailbroken the user can access the device’s root and then install apps, along with themes and other extensions that are not found in the App Store. Apple doesn’t like this of course and they filed a complaint with the US copyright office to try and get jailbreaking devices made illegal.

However in October, shortly before the release of the iPhone 5 the ruling was that jailbreaking was not illegal. Of course with iOS 6 Apple have not made jailbreaking easy and the developers are in fact saying that iOS 6 and the iPhone 5 is the hardest they have ever tried to jailbreak.

The video from the ARB Dev Team seems to show us iOS 6 on the iPhone 4S and it is loading Cydia. So if the jailbreak is the real thing then it should work on the iPhone 5. Unfortunately a release date for this solution has yet to be announced.
