    Default Re: December 22nd untethered iOS6 / iPhone 5 Jailbreak- hoax or reality?

    As anyone who is interested in a new jailbreak probably knows by now, the developer behind the jailbreak being discussed here is supposed to update his site and his Twitter today with video "proof" of the jailbreak. While most of the iOS community seems to think this is a hoax or worse (possibly a way to get users to download malware) I'd be glad to see a new developer step up to the plate. Unlikely? Sure, but not impossible. I'll give him the benefit of the doubt until he proves us otherwise, if only because it feels good to hope again.

    I do wish iMore covered these things a bit more often--to me it's not a matter of being "right" or "wrong," it's a matter of reporting interesting news as it arises. They covered iPhone 5 rumors and leaks; to my mind something like this is not so very different. Why not keep your readers informed?

    exactly. nothing wrong with watching how this pans out. worst case scenario everyone goes back their normal lives

    it boggles my mind as to why some people are so passionate that this is indeed a fake. i'll laugh my *** off if it is Geohot making a return!

    I wouldn't really say that's confirmed fake. Its just some people that are skeptical. Don't get me wrong, I am too, but I wouldn't go so far as to call this fake yet.

    There's no confirmation at all there—just guesses. The last line says "stay tuned."

    I don't think it'll be legitimate but who knows. He's posting his proof sometime in the next two hours or so. If it is true I'm going to wait a couple days to get it and make sure the braver people still have use of their phones.

    i am going to completely go against all realistic thoughts and believe that this is indeed true, and safe, and will be offered for free on 12-22-12 as a sort of "yay were all still here gift"

    I don't think it's real. He never shows his computer and the Cydia app looks off center. Also the phone boots straight to home screen without slide to unlock showing up. I'm not saying for sure it's fake but this is my opinion :/ I wish it was real I'm super excited for a jailbreak
