iOS hacker extraordinaire, and my new friend since this week, pod2g just took the stage at JailbreakCon. After going over who he is and his hacking CV, pod2g went on to explain how he came up with Absinthe, his iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak.

But the question that was on everybody’s mind was “when are you coming up with an iOS 6 jailbreak”…

As pod2g explained to me, the iOS 6 jailbreak that Chpwn teased us with last week is merely a start, and is still far away from turning into an actual, usable jailbreak.

But like pod2g said on stage today, after talking with other iOS hackers such as PlanetBeing, there is a slim chance that they might start working hard on this jailbreak and may have something to base their research on in the near future.

But again, there is nothing concrete at this time, and you should not hold your breath.

I’ll be doing an interview with pod2g later on for those of you that are interested in learning more about the man.

  • im from london and got a jailbroke iphone 4S on ios 5.1.1 been jailbreaking all my iphones since ios 3.1.3 im so tempted to upgrade to ios 6 but dont wanna lose my jailbreak…. guy you should start charging for the jailbreak be a good way of bring money in for u and the next software jailbreak other sites are charging for it why not u guys as your the ones that realease it and shops all over the UK are charging £15 for your jailbreak !!! i bet 95% of people would pay £15 or $20 for this 🙂 ….. end off good work u guys over the years thanks

  • If there was a root-file access jailbreak I’d be happy with that 🙂 I assume the problems are with producing a “consumer-ready” jailbreak without any major issues.. I just want to be able to get into the root for now, to change the awful charger sound for example. Anyone know of a way?

    They do get paid to do it. jailbreaking is an 8 million dollar business. they get paid by saurik the creator and owner of cydia.
