Jailbreak for iPhone 5 and iOS 6 months away

Apple released the iPhone 5 in the same week that they began rolling out iOS 6 for other iOS devices. The iPhone 5 comes with iOS 6 pre-installed and for those hoping to jailbreak their shiny new phone soon will be in for a wait. Likewise, those who have upgraded their devices to iOS 6 or are itching to do so are also in for a long wait until it is jailbroken.

During the JailbreakCon 2012, pod2g stated that there isn’t a working untethered jailbreak for iOS 6 yet, which in turn means there’s no jailbreak for the recently released iPhone 5 either. A working jailbreak for iOS 6 isn’t expected for several months, so it’s best to stay on iOS 5.1.1 where possible. It was also noted that photos of jailbroken iPhone 5s may appear, such as the one in the post but, is commonly known as a “failbreak” and is a developers version and not available, or suitable for regular users.
