Absinthe2.0 Magnifying Glass

So here’s something we haven’t heard in a while: good news on the jailbreak front. It looks like now that pod2g has completed his first iOS app, entitled podDJ, the security expert has turned his attention to hacking iOS 6.

His return alone is great news, since it seems like he’s been gone from the community forever. But to add to the excitement, the hacker just announced that he and planetbeing recently discovered two new vulnerabilities…

Here’s planetbeing’s tweet regarding the hacking session:

And here’s pod2g’s response:

This is great news, obviously, as iOS 6 has thus far proven to be a tough nut to crack for hackers. In fact, back in December Mark Dowd said that Apple has practically overhauled security in the latest version of its mobile firmware.

Don’t get too excite yet though, as pod2g notes that they still have a ways to go. Even after they’ve completed the jailbreak, they’ll still have to test it across all devices, and build and test the desktop software, to ensure that it’s stable.

But still, progress is progress. Well done guys.

    Is that for iPhone 5 too, or?

      Why would they make a jailbreak without making support for the most popular device? Your question was just stupid.

  • Can’t wait for it to be released!

  • This is indeed great for future Jailbreaks, but the big problem for the upcoming one is the missing vulnerability for code execution on boot. So for now the Jailbreak will only work on a Developer Phones -> “Failbreak”.

  • a iPhone without a Jailbreak is not a iPhone

    • Johnathan Jennings

      It’s still an iPhone.. Just a boring one.

    • Nvrhde

      Its a Apple Phone

    Awesome news! Well done pod2g and PlanetBeing! Keep up the good work. :o)

  • rashid

    can’t wait 😀 please released soon! i must donate! xD

    • WolfgangHoltz

      Why not donate first. Because if you donate afterwards, it’s more like paying. 😉

  • Is it possible that in the future there will be no more vulnerabilities and jailbreaking will die?

    • No Software in the world can have no Vulnerabilities, because Software is coded by humans, and humans do mistakes.

      • RarestName

        It’ll just be harder to crack.

        Yes, the best example is the playstation 3, it took years, but it was eventually jailbroken.

      • The PS3 was broken in a few months, they just didn’t start before they had the incentive to break it. Which was the removal of Linux, which was the way to run code.

      • Alvin Ma

        well the simpler the software is, the harder to make mistake……..and for iphone…you bet…….

    • Ahmadjoon

      Noooooo!because the hackers are a lot and are going to do it because they want to be famous there are 100s hackers but we have just 10-50 persons who work on iOS security

    • Hamza Mohammed

      Jailbreak will never die because it comes by apple in indirect way

    • The more features apple adds to iOS are the more vulnerabilities that come along with them. With the addition of more code comes more loop holes. Jailbreaking will never die

  • Awesome

  • Approximately how much time more?

    • How long is a piece of string.

      Closer to iOS 7 release than what most people like!

    • planetcoalition

      Perhaps you should bear an appreciation mindset instead. They are working their butts off to bring you the jailbreak and you take it as if you’re entitled to it.

  • i have an iphone 4s runing on ios 5.1.1 but i don’t have the shsh blobs could i run a fresh re-restor with redsnow , I’M USING ULTRA-S SIM TO UNLOCK IT

  • Andre Grey

    i love this site….best site ever…..

    we always get stories on time

  • When this jailbreak hits, will it just be for iphone devices or will it work for the ipod touch as well? specifically the ipod touch 5g

    • Manuel Angel

      Mostly iPhone’s, iPod Touches, and maybe the iPad 4 and mini.

    • Mohammed Sahib

      AFAIK it depends if it is a software vulnerability or a hardware one. The former presumably will work on all iOS 6 devices, the latter depends on the processor type (A6/A6x or A5/A5x).

  • Liam Mulcahy

    I want that jailbreak

  • Since I lost my jailbreak, I have SWITCHED to a SAMSUNG GALAXY S3. Yes to android. I’m sad to say. It can’t touch the iPhone in awesomeness, only when it is JAILBROKEN. with the iPhone NOT jailbroken, the android is the way to go. Fully customizable. And that’s why I want my jailbreak back. I’m so sad, been crying for months. No jailbreak, no iPhone.

    • 4p0c4lyps3

      I feel ur pain, bro.

    • yeah but i hate android i just cant use that BS so i always make sure i have a jailbroken iPhone to use…lol

    • a smit

      crying? really?

    • i will never go android again… been there and it sucked…

  • We have a jailbreak !!!!!!!!! It’s tethered but works just fine! I’ve been using it for a while and it’s stable! Just don’t let your battery die, simple!

    Just try it!

    • Ronald Weaver

      Allot of people don’t have a jailbreak thats available right now. I asume you might have a iPhone4 or a 3gs. Anything newer than than is locked to stock.

  • ClaudieX X

    Question: i have an iPhone 4 and I’m waiting the jailbreak of iOS 6.1 to buy an iPhone 5. But now the web is starting to talk about the iPhone 5s coming soon. What do you think i must do? Stay with the excelent 4, buy the 5 the day next to the ios 6.1 jailbreak or wait the 5s??

    Please Android users dont say childish things that nobody cares…. really.

    • I would say buy the iPhone 5 when the jailbreak comes out

  • Jesus, some of the commenters bitching about not having a jailbreak makes me want to quit coming to this site sometimes. Downvote if you like, just proves my point really. -___-

    • Ronald Weaver

      I am just pointing out some irony here. Do not take it as a stab at you. But you are complaining about people who complain. XD LOL

      • 4p0c4lyps3

        He most certainly is.

      • Alex

        +1 well put

      • You know what? You got me there XD

    • 4p0c4lyps3

      Adios amigo

  • MadFunny Bruh

    Hope the release is close and of course I think everyone in JB community should donate for the hard work those guys do =)

  • finally … pod2g returns to jailbreaking 🙂

  • Nvrhde

    Gotta be carefull
    My friend JB his iphone 4 in ios 4. 00
    Now he cant upgrade his OS

  • Keep it up Pod2G and PlanetBeing!

  • i know its just as soon and ioS 6.1 drops it will be jaibreak time again

  • elkirf

    Wow! what a great news. Waiting…

  • Yo, I heard this Dream JB thing is going to be huge!
