Critical Pieces Still Needed for Public Jailbreak of iOS 6

Gearbest  promotion

Planetbeing, a member of the iPhone Dev-Team, shows IntelliScreenX running on the iPhone 5 but reveals that critical pieces needed for the public release of the iOS 6 jailbreak are still missing. Currently only the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, and iPod Touch 4G can be jailbroken on iOS 6.0 and only the old bootrom iPhone 3GS is untethered.

Can’t say too much, but we’re still missing critical pieces so it’s not releasable right now. Believe me, we’d love to release it asap.

The only thing I can say about the date is that I promised @alexeheath to try not to have it be released on a Sunday. 😛

Planetbeing also noted that it’s likely the team will only release a jailbreak if it’s untethered.

I meant if a JB comes out for the 4S, it’ll probably be at the same time as for the other devices, not earlier.

It’s unlikely we’ll see a tethered JB for later devices. They’ll likely be untethered or nothing unless we find a bootrom bug
