As hackers work to develop an untethered jailbreak for the latest Apple hardware and software, end-users are waiting on their toes for updates from the dev crews.
One such update recently came from famed hacker Joshua Hill (@p0sixninja
) who has revealed to a follower that iOS 6 has so many circumventing features, it’s probably the toughest nut to crack so far.
Asked whether the jailbreak could come out before January, Joshua said
, “the protections in iOS6 are ridiculous… it surpasses any OS ever created… it will be a long slow process.”
That doesn’t directly answer the follower’s question, but it does indicate that things are not moving at a fast pace on the iOS 6 jailbreak front. Which means there’s still a lot of waiting to be done before you can hack your new iPhone 5, for example.
