If you have been following the progress of the much-anticipated untethered iOS 6 jailbreak, then you will know that there isn't much to be excited about. Apple has been stepping up their game when it comes to strengthening security, both on the hardware and software side, which makes it a lot trickier for someone to come up with a jailbreak solution. Well as of late, it seems that someone decided to shake up the jailbreak scene by claiming to have the untethered iOS 6 jailbreak. This iOS 6 jailbreak will work on all current devices such as the iPhone 5, iPad mini, and iPad 4. So where is this outrageous news coming from?
This particular too-good-to-be-true claim has been made by a mysterious hacker named Dream Jailbreak. Yup, he has been claiming that he has found the elusive untethered iOS 6 jailbreak. Not only that, he has also set a release date for it and he is about to provide video evidence that he did in fact succeed. Check out the guy's tweet below:
Today is proof day! Will upload what you're all waiting for as soon as I get home. Cheers!
Many members of the jailbreak community are already calling this guy a fraud, which is justifiable for so many reasons. Famed jailbreak hacker iH8sn0w is just one of the folks who are slamming Dream JB saying that "people who are capable don’t go about giving dates and bragging online." Stefan Esser, better known as i0n1c, also slammed Dream JB on his Twitter account: "Wow that fake jailbreak account @dreamjailbreak already has more than 10000 victims^H^H^Hfollowers." iH8sn0w advises the people not to get their hopes up and especially refrain from downloading anything because this is a very smart way to spread viruses.
don’t get your hopes up. But also don’t just download anything. It seems like a very smart thing to do to distribute a new virus.
The skepticism that surrounds this Dream Jailbreak persona is definitely warranted. After all, he claims not to be affiliated with any other jailbreak team and hasn't released anything noteworthy in the past. Even if he says that he is going to provide proof, video footage can be easily faked nowadays. For all we know, this might just be a very elaborate hoax from a person who's screaming for attention, or just an epic trolling scheme. There's a good reason why we still don't have an untethered iOS 6 jailbreak. It's just not that easy.
Our advice is to try and not get your hopes up. And of course, don't just haphazardly download anything that this guy releases. If it is indeed the legitimate untethered iOS 6 jailbreak, then you will surely hear from prominent members of the jailbreak community. As for now, it is best to think that the elusive untethered iOS 6 jailbreak is not coming anytime soon, let alone in a matter of days.Contact Us for News Tips, Corrections and Feedback
