    Default More developers spotted in the iOS 6 jailbreak effort


    You’re probably familiar with two developers by the name of David Wang and Cyril Cattiaux, also known as PlanetBeing and pod2g. If you’re reading this, you’re likely waiting for them to release an untethered jailbreak for iOS 6 and the iPhone 5. The good news is they’re not working on the jailbreak alone.

    The iOS 6 jailbreaking effort seems to be picking up speed as other developers have begun contributing their own expertise to the movement. Here are the recent developments…

    Pictured: Nikias Bassen, David Wang, Cyril Cattiaux, P0sixninja, and Joshua Hill, presenting at Hack In The Box 2012

    First off, Nikias Bassen, the developer known as Pimskeks, has returned to security research and jailbreaking after taking time off to spend with his family. Along with Cattiaux and Wang, Bassen was part of the ‘Dream Team’ responsible for the Absinthe 2.0 jailbreak. Just yesterday the developer posted: “no time to rest, time to get something done!”

    Then there are other experts who are looking for exploits from other angles. For example, Joshua Drake, a security researcher and winner of DefCon 18′s ‘Capture The Flag’ hacker competition suggested looking for webkit exploits, the rendering engine behind Safari, and other developers asked whether or not an exploit in Safari would be viable. Joshua Hill, another developer behind the iOS 5 jailbreak, was quick to respond:

    @SwissHttp whats the prob with the piles of already disclosed but not patched webkit bugs?
    @jduck1337 @swisshttp sandbox isn't a huge issue, we just haven't dug into webkit to much (except @comex)

    It wasn’t long before another security researcher replied:

    @jduck1337 @swisshttp sandbox isn't a huge issue, we just haven't dug into webkit to much (except @comex)
    @p0sixninja @jduck1337 Good to know. Maybe I'll have a look then, if I find some time.

    Also, since we posted our last story about pod2g and PlanetBeing’s progress, it seems the developers have continued to make progress. Here’s a tweet pod2g posted on Monday:
    @pod2g
    Hey @planetbeing, please look at your IRC, I think I have good news!

    While this all looks encouraging, keep in mind none of this means we’ll see a publicly released jailbreak in the immediate future. Even after when the jailbreak itself is finished, the developers are likely to hold off for testing and the final release of iOS 6.1.


    On another Note this most don't know:

    iOS 6.1 Release Date Predictions

    iOS 5 was released in October alongside the iPhone 4S. Then, in January, Apple released iOS 5.1 Beta 3 to developers. Specifically, the company pushed the update on January 9th. Apple then released the final Gold Master version of iOS 5.1 to the public on March 7th, just a little under two months after the Beta 3 update arrived.

    iOS 6 was released in September alongside the iPhone 5, Apple’s latest version of the iPhone. The iOS 6.1 Beta 3 arrived today, December 3rd, more than a month ahead of the iOS 5.1 Beta 3. Given the September released date of iOS 6, that seems to point to an iOS 6.1 release date in 2013.

    As for a specific release date, if Apple holds to its previous schedule, iPhone, iPad and iPod touch owners should expect the software update to roll out at some point in early February and maybe even as early as late January.


    So cross your damn fingers, and hope Feb. is the lucky month. Cause I am tired as hell rebooting my shit with the PC.
