The Stagnant State of the iPhone 5 Jailbreak

iPhone 5

It has been a few months since the release of the iPhone 5 and iOS 6, but still no tetherless jailbreak in sight. So when will we see a jailbreak solution that doesn’t require tethering to work? It’s hard to say for sure.

When it comes to jailbreaking, there are several big names out there for such hacks. One of these names is p0d2g.

Unfortunately, p0d2g has confirmed through Twitter that he isn’t focusing on such a solution at the time, but that doesn’t mean other famous jailbreakers aren’t still trying there hand at it.

According to p0sixninja, he is currently looking for ways to dump the bootROM. Other hackers are focusing on looking into kernel exploits. This means that not all efforts have been abandoned, we just don’t have an easy solution at hand yet.

From the sounds of it, iOS 6 has been much harder to crack than any previous version of iOS. Where there is a will, there is a way, though. In time, someone will find a way around this, so don’t give up yet. In the meantime, enjoy the many great features for your iOS 6 device that don’t require jailbreaking.

If you absolutely need a jailbreak solution in your life, you might be better off sticking with an iOS 5 device.

    Over 2 months and no jailbreak but yet they focus on iPhone 4 first. Just not worth it. Galaxy note 2 time

  2. Its never unjailbreakable…its just how long will it take…could take a year! This bugs me the most cause I jailbreak for the right reasons aka Tweaks…not installious! People who only jailbreak for installious give jailbeakers a bad name!
    Give me: iFile,SB Rotator, Folder Enhancer, & Tether Me….& I would not even seek out jailbreaking!
    Oh and NoNewsIsGoodNews (cause I hate newsstand)

  3. I’m glad that they are keeping the rumors to a minimum this time, however this nonsense Bout a DJ contest makes no sense too me. Why have WWJB without a jailbreak? Soon cydia and tweak developers will go broke and wont be able to sponsor. I find it hard to believe they aren’t working harder to get this done!!

    I’d be willing to pay like $5 or $10 if it means the jailbreak gets released sooner… :P

    If the 5 cannot be jailbroken I will move on to an Android. I DO NOT like the iPhone when it’s not jailbroken. It’s been fun but it’s time to move on.

  6. I think this will be my first time i will donate to the cause once the iphone 5 jailbreak has release. I have never before thought of the process as being so hard on these guys. They deserve some reward.

  7. I would prefer having at least a tethered jailbreak, as it still IS a jailbreak after all. With it, it would be much easier to wait for next untethered jailbreak. Still I’m happy that there actually is someone working on it :) BIG THANKS

    “Is the lack of a tetherless jailbreak for iOS 6 devices keeping you from upgrading or not?”

    No, but the lack of “jailbreakless tethering” is….
