iOS 6/6.0.1 Untethered Jailbreak Now Worked By Pod2G And Planetbeing

Everyone owning iPhone 5 must have their iOS as iOS 6/6.0.1 and also the people who have upgraded their iOS are impatiently waiting for the untethered jailbreak. As we know, untethered jailbreak is normally a permanent jailbreak for iPhone unlike tethered jailbreak which requires tethering it again and again when the device turns off. Tethering is much required for iPhone users in various aspects whether you want cracked apps or you want to unlock your device. No doubt it's use is huge but the hackers have kept us waiting for long and we always look for untether updates from various iOS jail-breakers or what we call them iOS hackers. Recently the progress on iOS 6/6.0.1 was covered here.

According to the tweets, Planetbeing was working on the development of iOS 6/6.0.1 untether jailbreak. Last Friday, he spent with famous iOS security researcher Pod2G figuring out the way of iOS jailbreak.

Made some nice progress today with @pod2g. I think I’ll try to reward myself with a nap.
This morning, Pod2g, who was previously busy with setting up his own company called 2G Lab, tweeted this in response to Planetbeing’s tweet, confirming that he too is now actively involved in making untethered jailbreak for iOS 6.
@planetbeing oh yeah! 2 new vulnerabilities in a day, chance was with us. But we still miss that initial code execution for a public jb :/

What tweets from today suggests that all they are missing now is an initial code execution for a public jailbreak. It is important to note here that iOS 6.1 release is just around the corner. The dev teams involved in iOS 6 jailbreak will likely wait for Apple to release iOS 6.1 before releasing any untether tool for newer devices.

For people waiting for untether iOS 6/6.0.1 this is pretty good news as two of the famous iOS hackers have been spending their time on this.
