iOS 6 Jailbroken
If you had been waiting for a good news for quite sometime regarding jailbreaking iOS 6 for your iOS devices; then today we have got a great news for you. It comes straight from Hack In The Box Conference currently being held in Kuala Lumpur.
Famous hackers from all around the world are getting together to show off their skills to the world regarding security features for various devices and when we talk about security how can we miss the iPhone, iPad’s or the iPod touch’s operating system, that is iOS.
Apple launched iOS 6 last month bringing in over 200 new features, but as with all Apple firmware updates it closed the loophole that was used to jailbreak iOS devices.
Well for those of you who had lost hope in getting a jailbreak for iOS 6, we can now report that iOS 6 has been jailbroken by two hackers. @mdowd and @kernelpool jailbroke iOS 6 live during the conference.

Untethered iOS 6 Jailbreak
Now the question which will be in most of your mind is that, is this a tethered jailbreak or an untethered iOS 6 jailbreak. Well folks currently we have no confirmation regarding what kind of jailbreak is this, but as it’s being presented on a respectable stage we might go for an untethered jailbreak for iOS 6. But once again don’t get your hopes too high.
We currently do have a jailbreak for iOS 6 but those are only A4 devices, which includes iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad 1, and iPod touch 4. Although a jailbreak is present for these devices, unfortunately it’s only a tethered one meaning you will have to put in an extra effort every time you reboot the device.
Currently there has been no word regarding a release date for iOS 6 jailbreak, we will update you as soon as it hits the web. So stay tuned.
