iOS 6 Untethered Jailbreak for iPhone 5 and iPad Mini Coming Soon

The rumour mill heats up again, but this time it’s about the jailbreak. Yes! The official iOS 6 untethered jailbreak for iPhone 5 and iPad Mini and others – it’s been a long time we haven’t heard some updates.

A mysterious hacker calling himself “Dream JB” started teasing the iOS community about his quest on the iOS 6 untethered jailbreak using the latest devices, according to Killian Bell of Cult of Mac.

“A mysterious hacker has begun teasing the first untethered jailbreak for the latest devices running iOS 6, including the iPhone 5, the iPad mini, and the fourth-generation iPad. The hack will not come from the usual suspects — the iPhone-Dev Team — but rather from an individual calling himself “Dream JB.” He promises it will arrive on December 22, but are we getting our hopes up over nothing?”

This is not the first time that a hacker drops his bombshell of figuring out an untethered version of the latest firmware update. Some had attempted to take over. It’s been awhile, and it looks like hackers must go through a needle’s eye before releasing it to the public. But could this be a real deal?

An iOS 6 jailbreak exists, but it’s a tethered solution for A4 devices, specifically intended for the legacy devices – iPhone 3Gs, iPhone 4, iPod Touch 4G and iPad 1. Tethered jailbreak requires users to plug the device into your Mac or PC. And personally, I find it cumbersome so I ditched the method on my iPod Touch 4G.

If Dreamer JB’s promise holds true on December 22 or earlier, it’s going to be an early Christmas present for the iOS community. Here’s a transcribe of the video proving of his claim.

“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.”

What do you think folks?
