Fans waiting for the untethered jailbreak for the iPhone 5 saw their hopes rise and then fade yesterday when a well-known hacker of the iPhone community posted the supposed accomplishent on Twitter.

#gr1mra1n iPhone 5 iOS 6 Untethered Jailbreak false

Fans on Twitter quickly replied to @p0sixninja asking about what they thought was the iPhone 5 and iOS 6 jailbreak that they had been waiting for. Excitement grew as hackers typically use a combination of numbers and the word “rain” when referring to jailbreaking and tools used for jailbreaking. However fans hopes of an untethered jailbreak were quickly dashed as it looks as though the developers were just trolling among themselves.

Early the same day there was a posting from the same developer that said that the status of the jailbreak for iPhone 5 was looking grim. He said that he was working on something larger.

A lot of jail breakers were quick to pick up on the word “grim” in #gr1mra1n and while some noticed the sarcasm, others wondered if a jailbreak was very ready to be released. Fans of iPhone and iOS have been waiting for an untethered jailbreak since the release of the latest iPhone 5 and iOS 6.

So it appears that @p0sixninja is working on something larger. But just what could be larger than a jailbreak for the iPhone 5?

So at the moment there is still no jailbreak for iOS6 and the iPhone 5, however progress remains steady, but it could need a developer account from Apple to pull it off. At the moment there are fake websites out there by people scamming, wanting money. If you have the jailbreak on your old iPhone, you might want to avoid making the update to iOS6 at the moment.
