iOS 6.1 appears to be vulnerable to the exploits we are planning on using.
Before we could dare ask when this long-awaited untether would surface, MuscleNerd waded in, adding:
Hey, did everyone know the Super Bowl is this Sunday? What will you be doing? /cc @evad3rs
While it’s not absolute confirmation, it seems more than just a subtle hint that the untethered jailbreak could be ready as early as Sunday.
It’s been a long, winding road to here – on the cusp of an untethered jailbreak release, and for a while, it was looking as though we may not even see a jailbreak at all. With every new release of iOS, Apple tightens security, and naturally, shuts many doors previously exploited by the jailbreak Gods.
Now, with some of the most talented heads in the game having collaborated to a successful outcome, it’s almost as though the jailbreak was never in doubt, and it would certainly cap off a great Super Bowl Sunday if we were treated also to an untether.
The jailbreakers like to be cryptic, and often drop hints merely to throw us off, so it’s worth not getting too ahead of ourselves at this point. Moreover, Planetbeing also talks of two proof of concepts in need of merging and polishing, and thus the jailbreak “will not be ready to release until that [merging, polishing] and testing” has taken place.
