    Default 6.0.2 Untethered Jailbreak Update

    It's not a release, but it's the most exciting jailbreak news I've heard since buying my iphone 5!
    Planetbeing says he has an iOS 6.0.2 untethered jailbreak now, but we must be patient

    Default 6.0.2 Untethered Jailbreak Update

    This is great news. To be honest, I was hoping they would just wait until 6.1 so we can update and enjoy the new things and still have a jailbreak. Thanks for posting this Massie.

    To summarize for you BLINK, they were trying on 6.0.2/6.0.1 but at this point it looks like they're going to wait for 6.1 and just do it on that so everything is on a level playing field. So we all just have to wait a bit more.

    Excellent news guys. My iPhone 4 on 5.1.1 jailbroken got stolen, so I went to buy another iPhone 4 for iPhone 4 money and the seller not being very experienced sold me a 4s. I only noticed when I got home because of Siri in setting. So u had a bit of a result in the end and its has 4 months warranty.

    BUT I NEED MY JAILBREAK SO BAD!!!

    So this is great news. Thanks for the post Massie!

    Default 6.0.2 Untethered Jailbreak Update

    I have been drooling over this since I heard about it late last night. If they wait 4 or 5 weeks I might win 3cit's pool!

    Now, seriously, what should one expect when one re-breaks their phone after an upgrade and new JB? I had a half-dozen apps that I have discovered during the last several weeks I very much need/want. When I log back into my Cydia account, will they all be there just waiting to come home?

    They will not just be sitting there ready. You'll need to reinstall them one by one. There are apps that "backup" jailbroken apps but I don't use them since they really don't seem to work that well. Personally I just make a list and go from there.

    Any paid apps will be ready to install for free after you login to Cydia. 😃

    Well, my most looked forward to having back are Lockinfo and biteSMS, both paid apps so that will be a good start.

    Lesson learned - make a list next time!

    ... And thanks for the info.

    I forgot to mention the best way or the way I prefer is to save the deb files and install them back that way.

    Read this on iDB earlier, now I can get rid of this pesky badge on my settings icon! Didn't want to upgrade iOS 6 anymore incase the jailbreak that comes out wasn't for the latest iOS 6 version. But now I guess I can.

    Just a heads up, Cydia SHOULD keep a record of your purchased apps by means of your phone's id. Really the easiest way to upgrade is just to take a quick screenshot of all of your tabs, then back up your phone. The screenshots will be saved into the backup and you're free to go back and find the apps when you're done upgrading.

    Be careful. You can upgrade now, but don't upgrade when 6.1 comes out. The jailbreak may or may not work with 6.1. They're just avoiding giving Apple a heads up on the exploit they have now so that Apple has an easier time closing it in 6.1 prior to release. This doesn't mean what they have now WILL work with 6.1 nor does it mean that they will release a tool that works with 6.1.

    This is kind of a bummer: Planetbeing today said it still won't be released until another exploit is found:

    it is a very frustrating cycle, that is for sure. jailbreak... wait for the next exploit before you update to the next OS (repeat process)

    i have already accepted the fact that if i want more customization then get an android and you'll have most of those features you desire right out of the box

    Yep. I can live without but would obviously love to have it. I actually sent Tim Cook an email this morning asking him to consider adding a Gatekeeper type function to iOS, so I'm sure he'll be getting on it soon anyway.

    Ha! My hopes exactly! I've been clamoring for Gatekeeper on iOS ever since they introduced it in OS X.
    If you have jailbreak woes, you can iMessage me at iDonev@me.com. I'll try to help (provided I have time to spare).

    So iirc planet being actually has 4 exploits running on his device right now?
    Why are we concerned about a singular "silver bullet exploit"?
    Seems like there is already more than one
