iOS 6 jailbreak out this Sunday?
We heard whispers earlier this week that an iOS 6 jailbreak that would unleash the power of your iPhone 5 was on the way, and now it looks like it’s right on track. A website for the jailbreak has gone live, and all signs point to a release as soon as this Sunday.
Head on over to evasi0n.com and you’ll see the website for a new iOS 6 jailbreak that’ll let you unlock your iPhone 5, iPad mini or any other device running iOS 6. It’s not live yet, but it looks like you simply have to plug your iPhone into your computer (PC, Mac or Linux) and just hit go – the team behind it, including legendary iPhone hackers musclenerd and pod2g, are testing it right now behind closed doors before unleashing it on the masses.
While there’s no release date on the site, we doubt it’s a coincidence that every iOS gadget featured on the homepage has the date showing 3 on it – which could well be this Sunday 3 February.
An iOS jailbreak is the holy grail for smarpthone hackers, who spend months looking for security flaws in Apple’s software that can be easily exploited. Once jailbroken, your iPhone can run apps Apple hasn’t approved, and you can even change its themes and interface in ways you couldn’t before.
Though it comes half a year after the launch of iOS 6, this marks the first time you’ll be able to easily jailbreak an iPhone 5 or iPad mini, and we’re sure plenty of people will be itching to do so.
