As you all know, there is much hoopla surrounding the release of the most anticipated jailbreak, the iOS 6 untethered jailbreak. In an earlier report, well-known jailbreak developer Intelliborn announced three of its most prominent products have been updated for iOS 6 compatibility. With the imminent release of the jailbreak, it's expected other developers will follow suit and there will be an influx of tweaks and apps. On a related note, Jay Freeman (@saurik) also performed housekeeping of his own and updated two of his apps, Winterboard and Veency.
As reported by iJailbreak, Saurik updated two of its prominent products for iOS 6, Winterboard and Veency. Those dabbling in customizing and theming their iOS devices should be familiar with Winterboard. After all, it's the premier go-to solution when it comes to theming every aspect of their iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Aside from being compatible with iOS 6, Winterboard has been upgraded to take advantage of the A6 CPU, which is found on newer devices like the iPhone (A6X on the iPad 4). This means you will experience the fastest Winterboard on your A6 device.
The only downside is some of the icons (especially those native to iOS 6) won't be supported from the get-go. Once the iOS 6 untethered jailbreak drops, it shouldn't take too long before the makers of popular Winterboard themes will update their creations so they are fully optimized for iOS 6. It won't be too long before you can use your favorite Winterboard themes.
Another product of Saurik gets the iOS 6 treatment is Veency. For the unitiated, it is a jailbreak app functioning as a Virtual Network Computing (VNC), which can control your iOS device from the computer with the use of a VNC client. While not as popular as Winterboard, we're sure many folks are pleased Veency is now compatible with iOS 6.
As the release of the iOS 6 untethered jailbreak comes to a close, it is expected other jailbreak developers will be updating their apps and tweaks for compatibility with the latest firmware. Evasi0n is now 85% complete. Keep your eyes peeled and make sure to tune-in.Contact Us for News Tips, Corrections and Feedback
