Just yesterday, Apple released iOS 6.1 beta 5 to developers. This release was rather unexpected as most people believe that the Cupertino company is about to release the public iOS 6.1. Upon closer inspection, various prominent members of the jailbreak community like i0n1c and MuscleNerd have found out that despite the beta designation, iOS 6.1 beta 5 may be in fact a "golden master" or even the official release masked as a beta. Many people take this as maybe Apple's way of fishing out for jailbreak exploits. On a related note, Evad3rs, which has been recently formed said that the hotly-anticipated iOS 6 untethered jailbreak is pretty much ready, they just need Apple to officially release iOS 6.1.
iDigitalTimes has recently interviewed Pod2g and they were able to confirm that the iOS 6 and iOS 6.1 untethered jailbreak is finished. However, Pod2g is not about to take all the credits to himself, as he stated that the most important work was not by him but by other members. Nikias Bassen (@pimskeks) and Planetbeing are the two members that deserves most of the credit for really getting their hands dirty that pave the way for the iOS 6 untethered jailbreak. If anyone can recall, both Pimskeks and Planetbeing are also members of the jailbreak super team, Evad3rs. Pod2g did his share of contribution by helping other members "unblocked the situation."
I arrived at the end, gave ideas that pushed them to their maximum, I kinda unblocked the situation, but it would certainly have happened without me helping. Now I am helping as much as I can in terms of communication, websites, and also development, but I was not involved the same way as previous, focused on my work and all... Yes, in order @planetbeing, @pimskeks, then me.
The last but certainly not the least member of the Evad3rs team is MuscleNerd, who was also deemed a key contributor, as one would expect. Pod2g stated that while working on the current untethered jailbreak, MuscleNerd has found some future-proof exploits that could be utilized even for the next version of iOS.
All in all, everything is looking good. As repeatedly stressed by Pod2g, the men to thank for the iOS 6 untethered jailbreak are Planetbeing and Pimskeks. However, we believe that Pod2g is just being modest and have contributed more than he leads us to believe. Once the iOS 6 untethered jailbreak is released, newer devices like the iPhone 5 and iPhone 4S will be supported on iOS 6 / iOS 6.1. All we can do is exercise patience and hope that nothing will go wrong like Apple patching these precious exploits. [via iJailbreak]Contact Us for News Tips, Corrections and Feedback
