We were simply bombarded with jailbreak news today, one after another and it seems we still have more to go! This time something really crazy and it’s about iOS 6. Yes folks about iOS 6 which hasn’t even been released yet and guess what folks, hackers are already working on jailbreaking it.
Chronic Dev Team has released Absinthe to untether jailbreak iOS devices on iOS 5.1.1. This was released at Hack In The Box Security Conference held in Amsterdam and boy did it take the whole jailbreaking community by storm. People flocked to jailbreak their devices thanks to Absinthe being free.
Well besides Absinthe being released at the conference there were some other interesting stuff, including musclenerd’s evolution of iPhone baseband & unlocks and as well as pod2g mentioning they are working on iOS 6 jailbreak. Yes folks iOS 6 jailbreak!
iOS 6 Jailbreak
In an interview to softpedia, pod2g (the main guy behind Absinthe v2.0) mentioned they have already “laid out plains for cracking the up coming iOS 6”.
It is expected that Apple will release iOS 6 this coming June in World Wide Developer Conference and what better way to start it with a jailbreak already ready for it.
As you are aware that Apple has not even released iOS 6 beta’s to developer, so how come pod2g and other hackers working on the jailbreaking iOS 6? Well here is what pod2g has to say:
“We will not give you the exact recipe, but we have other exploits that we won’t release at any time. This is our secret. It allows us to inject stuff into new devices and to start dumping the memory. When we have the dumps, we look at different ways of finding the vulnerability,”
What this means is basically that they already have exploits other then the one they are using for Absinthe and they are saving it for iOS 6.
So when iOS 6 gets released we will have a jailbreak, pretty awesome isn’t it? But remember folks we are not even sure if Apple will release iOS 6, and if they fix most of the exploits in the current firmwares we won’t a have jailbreak.
Lets not think to far ahead and enjoy the current untether jailbreak for iOS 5.1.1.
