Things are looking up on the jailbreak scene at long last as, yesterday, tweets were spotted from both Planetbeing and Pod2g. From planetbeing: “Tons of progress the last few days. I think the future is looking bright for jailbreaking. :)” and from Pod2g: “Come on Apple. Release that 6.1 now!”
It seems that they may finally have the jailbreak ready for release but want to see iOS 6.1 released first. It wasn’t too long back that they found another couple of vulnerabilities but, at the time, didn’t have the required hack. It’s looking like they may now have it and this is what is going to make it possible for the jailbreak to made available to the public.
To date there have been 4 Beta versions of iOS 6.1 with the last one expiring on January 28th – the full version should be released shortly after this. However, don’t go getting too excited just yet and upgrading your device to 6.1 – wait until the dev team gives the go ahead. As usual, when we have more news we’ll let you know.
