[News] iOS 6 Rumoured Jailbreak Release

20121221-185232.jpg
At a time when millions of iOS 6 users have been eagerly waiting for an untethered jailbreak for months now, an unknown hacker by the name of “Dream JB” has created a buzz among the jailbreak community by claiming that he will release an untethered jailbreak for iOS 6 Dec. 22. The self-proclaimed hacker has even said that his untethered exploit will be compatible with newer iOS devices such as iPhone 5, iPad Mini, iPad 4 and the new iPod touch.

On 17th December 2012, the Dream JB (Dream Jailbreak) website was updated with a post outlining the progress of the claimed iOS 6 untethered jailbreak for iPhone 5. The hacker said that he would upload a video Wednesday, proving that the untethered jailbreak he created was real. Here’s what the post said:
“Proof will be posted both here and on my Twitter account on Wednesday. As far as the video that will be uploaded, it will be a single-take shot of the entire jailbreak process, including a restart and usage of the device to prove it is untethered. It will be uploaded as raw video straight from my camera to YouTube. So no edits in any form. Thank you all for your patience and support. Also, with the extremely high volume of tweets and over 4500 emails, I will try to address the public as I can. I ask that you read the FAQ before contacting me by email. I will update the FAQ for you all tomorrow morning. I’ve also moved past website updates to the bottom of the page. Goodnight everyone!

I should note that all announcements are made in EST time zone. As of now it’s 8:11 PM EST, proof should be out before 8 PM EST tomorrow.”

According to the hacker, the new iOS 6 and 6.0.1 untethered jailbreak will support devices including iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPad (2nd generation and beyond), iPad Mini and iPod touch (4th generation and beyond).

As per the FAQ page provided by the Dream JB website, the jailbreak will be a one-click process and will differ from the previous jailbreak methods using “Webkit exploit” and “userland exploit.” The hacker clearly stated that “any device that normally supports iOS 6.0/6.0.1 is supported by the jailbreak,” meaning A6 devices are included.

Meanwhile, Dream JB’s claims regarding the iOS 6 untethered jailbreak have raised a lot of skepticisms around the tech world, with prominent jailbreak developers of the iPhone Dev Team and the Chronic Dev Team denouncing it as yet another elaborate gambit of a hoaxer.

While well-known iOS hacker MuscleNerd has put Dream Jailbreak on his list of “fake” jailbreaks, another renowned jailbreak developer Joshua Hill aka @p0sixninja criticized it saying “they’re all fake.”

No matter how many times we say “They’re all fake” no one ever listens….. *sigh*

iOS hacker iH8sn0w, on the other hand, too to his Twitter account saying: “Never trust anyone who has never released anything credible in the past.”

He further urged the users to be very careful about fake jailbreak websites. “Don’t get your hopes up,” he tweeted, “But also don’t just download anything.. it seems like a very smart thing to do to distribute a new virus.”

Jeff Benjamin of iDownloadBlog said in a post Tuesday that any claim about an iOS jailbreak that lacked word from respectable members of the Chronic Dev Team or the iPhone Dev Team was “almost always fake.”

“Suppose an iPhone 5 jailbreak does drop on the 22nd, and it does work? If so, I will happily apologize to the man behind the Dream JB, and create a post outlining how wrong I was for lumping his project in with all of the other fakes that we’ve seen over the years,” Benjamin wrote.

“This guy claims that he’s a ‘one man army,’ which is fine. But explain to me why it took a literal Dream Team of talented hackers to orchestrate the last Absinthe jailbreak for iOS 5.1.1?” he added.

Dream JB describes himself:

“My identity will remain an obscurity. I am not affiliated with any known dev team. This project is individual and solely run by me alone. I am here to show the world that the source of an exploit or jailbreak can be from outside the norm.”

According to him, he is a university student, currently in the middle of writing his final exams. However, he says although he has his priorities, he does his best “to keep you all in the loop with the timeline of events and the release.”

[Tutorial] How To Jailbreak A4 Devices On iOS 6.

 

The iPhone dev team have updated Redsn0w, adding full support for final public release of iOS 6 on select devices with official version of Cydia, along with tons of new features which are detailed after the jump.

Redsn0w 0.9.15b1 for both Windows and Mac not only adds support for tethered jailbreak of iOS 6 on A4 based devices, but also for re-restoring and downgrading of select devices from iOS 6 to an older firmware, or in case of re-restoring, from iOS 5.x to iOS 5.x.

Supported devices:

First and foremost, it is important to note this is a tethered jailbreak and is only meant for devices boasting an A4 Processor (or below), namely: the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and the 4th-gen iPod Touch. Devices with A5 (iPhone 4S, iPad 2), A5X (iPad 3) and A6 (iPhone 5) processors are not supported at this point. Hacktivation + baseband preservation support has also been added for iPhone 4 and 3GS.

This latest version of Redsn0w does not require the user to go through the trouble of downloading and pointing the app to the iOS 6 IPSW for the jailbreak (the older version of Redsn0w, as mentioned in our previous jailbreak iOS 6 guide, required manual IPSW selection). Instead, the latest Redsn0w recognizes the firmware already installed on your device, downloads the required files and proceeds with the jailbreak. It’s that simple. Cydia, as mentioned above, is now also included as part of this Redsn0w’s release.

Jailbreaking is done in the same way as it is done with iOS 5.

Note for iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS Ultrasn0w unlockers: You will first need to preserve your older baseband to be eligible for unlock. Click on “Extras” option and then select “Custom IPSW” option. Select the required iOS 6 IPSW file for your device, and let Redsn0w make the custom firmware for you. Once done, enter Pwned DFU mode by selecting “Pwned DFU” from Redsn0w’s Extras option, and then restore to this custom firmware.

How to boot your device tethered on iOS 6:

Since this is a tethered iOS 6 jailbreak, you will need to boot your device in a tethered mode every time the device is turned off and back on. Booting in tethered mode is easy, and can be achieved using Redsn0w: click on the “Extras” from the main screen and then simply click on “Just Boot” option. Follow the on-screen instructions. Once done, you will be rebooted back into tethered-jailbreak mode.

What’s new in Redsn0w 0.9.15b2?

New re-restore features have also been introduced in this version of Redsn0w. It now allows third-gen iPad and iPhone 4S users to RE-restore to any version of iOS 5.x even if Apple is currently not signing the software, provided that your SHSH blobs are saved for iOS 5.x, and the device is currently running iOS 5.x (not iOS 6) that too updated via iTunes, not OTA. iPad 2 users will also be able to downgrade if they have blobs for both 4.x and 5.x saved – even from iOS 6. The A4 based iPhone 4, 3GS and 4th-gen iPod Touch users can of course always downgrade to an older firmware for untethered jailbreak provided that they have SHSH blobs saved for the firmware they want to downgrade on.

If you want to install Cydia on iOS6,refer to this article.
