Jailbreaking iOS 6.x has been met with many roadblocks, but for untethered jailbreak seekers, this upcoming Sunday may be the day you all receive a very late Christmas gift courtesy of team Evad3rs.
Evad3rs’ Planetbeing recently tweeted:
“iOS 6.1 appears to be vulnerable to the exploits we are planning on using. :)”
MuscleNerd, also a part of Evad3rs, added to the commotion by tweeting:
“Hey, did everyone know the Super is this Sunday? What will you be doing? /cc @evad3rs”
Of course all this iOS 6.1 untethered jailbreak talks is by no mean a confirmation of its eventual release, but MuscleNerd’s subtle hint in his Super Bowl tweet is creating quite a bit of hype for an actual untethered jailbreak.
News of people running an untethered iOS 6.1 jailbreak on their iPhone 5 have been floating around the internet for quite some time, but there has been no official public release as of yet. It may be a good thing that there hasn’t been a public release yet, because the great people at Apple are quick to plug in the holes and prevent the exploits from taking away the company’s much needed revenue.
