Jailbreaking the iPhone or iPod Touch allows users to run apps and tweaks that are not approved by Apple. This makes it possible to change the look of the iPhone and to run apps that do more than Apple or carriers want. Jailbreaking is legal, but it will void the warranty through Apple. This is not an issue for most users as it’s possible to un-jailbreak the iPhone with a simple restore, but it’s worth revealing. Under recent amendments to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act last summer, the process has been legalized in theU.S. on smartphones and tablets, though the legality of jailbreaking game consoles or other devices is still up in the air and subject to court interpretation.
Apple has introduced many mind-boggling tactics in the previous year 2012 reason of this being the most popular is Samsung increased competition. As many have noticed that Apple happening to introduce their iOS devices more often than usual. Only 6 month after iPad 3 (New iPad) release a new iPad 4 got released with better graphic rendering and speed A6x chip with 2048-by-1536 resolution at 264 pixels per inch (ppi). As they update with their production, jailbreaking each and every one and plus compatibility issues proceeds so it becomes more problematic.
Many of you who have got new Apple iOS devices as Christmas present have been questioning on whether there is any untethered iOS 6 / 6.0.1 jailbreak obtainable for the devices like iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPad mini, iPod touch 5 and the list goes on. One of the reasons we characteristically wait so long for jailbreaks, especially the iOS 6 jailbreak for the iPhone 5 and iPad 4 is that the crew behind the work is striving to proclaim an untethered jailbreak. Granted there are other influences, like finding all the exploits needed and preparing an iOS 6 jailbreak tool that the middling iPhone 5 owners can use, but it needs to be an untethered jailbreak in order to deliver a friendly iPhone 5.
The iPhone Dev Team offers a new iOS 6 jailbreak for the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and iPod Touch that automatically installs the Cydia app store for an easier, faster iOS 6 jailbreak process with the latest Redsn0w jailbreak tool.(FOR “ A4 devices “ ONLY) In the end is the method of this.
Sadly A6 and A5 devices now will have to wait. It’s no surprise that many within the iOS community have grown twitchy with the lack of a jailbreak for iOS 6. The main bug which irritates us using an unjailbroken device is when you become accustomed to jailbreak. The person using tweaks through Cydia extensively might even stop using their iPhones and iPads. Utmost widespread tweaks through Cydia being the luxurious notification center, BiteSms, the new multitasking switcher offered by Auxo tweak and SBsettings (the easiest way to access quick settings), let many people into them so much that they forget what original GUI were they using. So after they update or restore (talking about A5 & A6 devices) their devices, all we see is people opening various fake jailbreak sites. Although if we look up some history, the first untethered jailbreak for iOS 5 was released around this point last year, this year unfortunately, we’re still quite a way from that at this point. The delay is also because of Apple’s updating production.
Dev Team had a lot of success in the past years on cracking Apple updating iOS. As for now Apple has been promised in something of a cat-and-mouse battle with the jailbreak gurus from the get-go “the Cupertino company” has really stepped its game up with iOS 6 – a release which is evidencing a very, very tough nut to crack. Security researcher i0n1c believes that the upcoming iOS 6.1 will be even tougher to exploit, to make things even worse.
As for now things are looking faint for a new jailbreak, but all hope is not lost yet. It seems like David Wang (Planetbeing) is still working on rearranging all the map pieces to fit together. While MuscleNerd of iPhone Dev Team has advised against updating to iOS 6.0.2(available for iPhone 5 and iPad mini only) for an eventual jailbreak, David intervenes that there is not much variations made between the kernels of iOS 6.0.1 and iOS 6.0.2, so there is upright chance if the jailbreak arrives for iOS 6.0.1 so it will be compatible with iOS 6.0.2. If your iPhone 5 or iPad mini happens to be suffering from the issues outlined as fixed in iOS 6.0.2 such as Wi-Fi afflictions, you have a factual decision on your hands, but otherwise, stick with what you have.
As far I can see there are no updates or jailbreaks yet for iOS 6+ for A5 and A6 chipped devices, taking advantage of this status quo, spammers and young programmers are building up bogus dummy tools to experiment or earn illegal money by publicizing. Many YouTube videos have been uploaded in these current months about jailbreak available for every device.
Those are all fake tutorials; actually some false videos are even uploaded 2 days after the release of iOS 6. There are tons of sites on the Internet offering either fake jailbreak tools, or video proofs like the now infamous Dream JB for iOS 6 jailbreak which turned out to be a “social experiment”. Not only can the package contain a virus, but said individual can also easily rake in thousands of dollars via any pay-to-use system.
Scammers, coders, and spammers of the Web’s non niceties take great care to ensure that their prejudicial software spreads through more and more online forums and social networks, playing with the demands of people, capitalizing their wants. This task can be achieved simply easily. As such, we strongly urge you not to download anything until a valued jailbreak developer – perhaps, a member of the real Jailbreak Dream Team – has given some kind of endorsement.

If you see a jailbreak release for iOS 6, check back here at Tenocation, because if it’s legit, we’ll have it enclosed here as soon as it drops. At this point, we don’t see that happening as iOS 6.1 is just around the corner.
