    Oh for cryin' out freakin loud... Really??? The Beta is out today - and you want it freakin' jailbroke already???

    What are you smoking?

    And for what it's worth - it seems the stock iOS6 features announced today cover what I jailbreak for... so - come release day for iOS6 - it's back to TeamPure!!

    Yes. We have to have it ASAP. We need to jump on that immediately. Preferably today.

    Absinthe was good for a day but now it's completely irrelevant.

    The DevTeam will likely begin to probe for vulnerabilities - but you are simply out of your Vulcan mind if you think something will be released to jailbreak iOS6 before it's publicly released - and will likely be several weeks after iOS6 is released in October.

    Ceasing this needless hope of something you will never see will benefit you, and us - as we won't have to see it.

    Then you better get a developers account and get on it .. I cut you some slack I let you have till tomorrow to deliver lol

    On a side not I doubt there will be a jb until ios6 is official because if not then apple will fix the exploit in betas

    I didn't upgrade with Abstinthe because I knew that iOS6 was coming like pretty much the next day. But if I was a developer I'd definitely be on it like, now.

    And yes. I know it's in beta, I was just saying that when it does get shipped out, the jailbreak should be shipped out right along with it. So it should be in everyone's mind to be working on it today. I don't think anyone has the capacity to wait for this.

    I'll wait patiently.

    And not be nuts about posting why they can't get it done sooner because I wanted it YESTERDAY!!!!

    Of course they're working on it: in fact, some of the pieces are already in place:

    But if you think it's going to be released before iOS 6, I don't know what to tell you except that's not the way it works.

    I understand that, what I was trying to say is that we have ample time right now to make the jailbreak before iOS6 gets put out.

    So, there should be no waiting once iOS6 becomes available.

    Just putting it out there, but within an hour of the first 5.0 beta being released the Dev Team had updated and released redsn0w to jailbreak the beta.. and every subsequent beta after it.

    I wouldn't be surprised if it was out tonight.. MuscleNerd's Twitter has been mysteriously quiet.

    Different situations have different options—sometimes a new firmware can be jailbroken, even if tethered, with existing methods. In a case like that it's easy to update an existing jb to work with a beta because it doesn't reveal any new exploits to Apple.

    You never know, but I'm guessing this won't be one of those.

    Most of the stuff available on iOS 6 can be done through jailbreaking (Turn by turn navigation is better on the TomTom app as it doesn't require cellular network, only gps.) Fusion has facebook intergration as well (look it up in cydia) you can share pictures directly from photo app already and Siri still cannot shut off radios and features (ie. push email, brightness etc) but you can do much more with ios 5 jailbreak.

    That's not how it works, the jailbreak devs need time to make an untethered tool, which takes time since they need to find an exploit and then test it for weeks to make sure it's bug free. Apple plugs exploits in the beta's with the final release so they can't even start to work on an untether until then. Why do you think every jailbreak takes around two months to come out after a new OS is released?

    If iOS 6 comes out in October, don't expect an untethered jailbreak until around Christmas, just like last year with iOS 5.

    There might be a semi-tether sooner though which is good enough for most people..

    It's true: iOS 5 (Jailbroken) is comparable to iOS6. I'm really excited today: I might just decide to keep this iPhone Jailbroken, the iPhone 6 will be shipping with iOS 6 and I can take it from there.

    This is so great.

    Default there, happy now?



    It’s true, MuscleNerd has successfully jailbroken iOS 6 on an iPod Touch 4th generation device. Unfortunately, that jailbreak isn’t publicly available, and in its current form it’s hardly what we’d expect anyway. While it’s been technically jailbroken by the defacto leader of the iPhone Dev Team, essential items like Cydia still lack functionality, and it’s just a tethered jailbreak.

    Hence, it’ll probably be a while before we see an official iOS 6 beta jailbreak from the Dev Team. It’s just nice to know that they’ve already started tinkering around with the possibilities…

    Did you know that the maps app in iOS 6 is actually from TomTom? LMAO haha i read that and I was like "well, now there's definitely no reason to give up the jailbreak." Unless the Facebook intergration is something spectacular and battery life is improved, i'll just wait for the cidya tweaks that add the same features.
