A new jailbreak & unlock scam has emerged taking advantage of less savvy iPhone owners who believe that hacks are a godsend to iDevices, because of Apple’s limitations.
While jailbreaks do open the door to a flurry of tweaks and mods that squeeze more functionality out of stock devices, the tools required to reap the benefits of an iPhone 5 jailbreak are not yet available. The same goes for iOS 6.
“UNLOCK each iPhone version, from 2.0 to 4.3.5 and new 6.0 & 5.1 & 5.1.1 Only 3 min and your iPhone will be free and you will use it with every operator,” reads a new ad signed superunlockiphone.com.
It also claims to be able to jailbreak iPhone 5 units “from 6.0 to iOS 6.0.1.”
If such a hack was even available at the moment, it would take a heck of a lot more than 3 minutes to get your device up and running again.
The site in question is rigged to look like a genuine services provider that charges “only” €14.99 (around 20 American dollars) for a software product that customers cannot try before buying.
Instead, superunlockiphone.com says it offers a 30-day 100% money-back guarantee.
History has shown that shady sites like this one almost never reimburse their customers, nor do they actually deliver the advertised goods.
Just hours ago Softpedia reported on the progress of a select team of hackers regarding their jailbreaking efforts with the iPhone 5.
Only a handful of people in this world are actually working on these hacks, and they’re still a few bugs away from the final release.
If they haven’t cracked it, you can be sure superunlockiphone.com isn’t anywhere near achieving an untethered iPhone 5 / iOS 6 jailbreak, as advertised on their site.
Moreover, genuine hackers never reach into anyone’s pocket in exchange for their jailbreak solutions. Superunlockiphone.com is chock-full of “buy now” buttons, which should scare off even the least savvy user.
To make matters worse, this so-called services provider actually claims to bundle free apps, games, wallpapers, ringtones and (hear this) Live TV with your purchase.
We’ve stressed this countless times before - be skeptical about sites claiming to offer iPhone hacks in exchange for your cash (regardless of how little they charge you for it). The genuine solutions are entirely free of charge, always.
