Finally! An iPhone 5 Compatible iOS 6 Untethered Jailbreak

By  | 

Users of iPhone 4S and iOS 6 have good news heading their way! There’s a video showing a 4S using Cydia, which means that devs might have managed an iOS 6 jailbreak. This also means that other devices with the similar chip i.e. iPhone 5 will be in the same bag, finally.

@Mr_DunH1ll tweeted the video to show that the iOS 6 jailbreak works for the iPhone 4S. He did admit that it does have some problems, though, and that these problems will have to be sorted before it could be released. It’s thought that the beefed-up security on iOS 6 is to blame.

This hacker founded the ARB Dev Team – Arab Dev Team for iOS 6 and OSX. No one’s heard of this team before, but this guy’s Twitter feed also appears to show an iPad running jailbroken iOS 6.

The ARB team claims that this jailbreak works with A6 chip devices like the iPhone 5. It’s not the first time that someone’s flaunted an iOS 6 jailbreak, but this one has no glaring signs of fraud.

Devs are definitely closer than ever to an iOS 6 jailbreak, but Chronic Dev says that lots of pieces are missing and have to be put into place before a public release. If ARB does have the right stuff, it’ll have to collaborate with other teams to get the iOS 6 unterthered jailbreak out even sooner to devices with the newer chip.
