Pod2g Is Not Currently Working On The iOS 6 Jailbreak; More Details At WWJC
In a post on Twitter, Pod2g wrote “About the iOS 6 JB : I’m not working on it ATM, sorry. I’m focusing on my job. Maybe discussions at #WWJC will generate ideas (?).” Pod2g also commented that while he believes Grant Paul is ‘trustable’ (despite having worked for Apple in the past) that doesn’t mean we’ll see a public jailbreak in the near future.
Just because a jailbreak is demonstrated by a developer, it is not a guarantee that the jailbreak will see a public release. Stefan Esser has famously teased jailbreaks of the iPad 2 as well as a day one jailbreak of the iPad 3 but refused to release the jailbreak. Esser felt that the model for distributing jailbreaks was unsustainable and unfair for developers.
As for the Absinthe jailbreak which Pod2g was involved in, the exploit responsible for jailbreaking iOS 5.1.1 and the iPad 3, there were legal hurdles which delayed public release in addition to technical ones. It wasn’t enough that the developers could jailbreak their own devices, they had to deliver the exploit using code that didn’t belong to someone else. Of course, they were able to release their jailbreak to the public at Hack In The Box 2012.
Who knows, maybe we’ll have more details at the World Wide Jailbreak Convention starting this friday in San Francisco?
