The untethered iOS 6.1 jailbreak iPhone 5 release is expected to take place on Sunday. Merely an hour ago Apple released iOS 6.1 firmware for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch to the public. Soon after that the jailbreak developers have revealed via Twitter that the jailbreak everyone has been waiting for appears to be working on the latest iOS update.
The jailbreak developers had made it clear before that they were not going forward with untethered iOS 6.1 jailbreak iPhone 5 plans until Apple released iOS 6.1 firmware to the public. They were adamant on this because they did not want to reveal the exploit that they’re using, so as to save it from being patched by Apple. The latest updates from them surely put a smile on the face of the jailbreak community at large. Whatever exploits they were planning to use have not been patched by Apple, meaning that an untethered iOS 6.1 jailbreak iPhone release can take place very soon.
We reported earlier that this new jailbreak will be released under the newly formed Evad3rs Dev Team. Pod2g, Planetbeing, Pimskeks and MuscleNerd are the four members of this new team. MuscleNerd sent out a tweet an hour back which contained a subtle hint about the release date of this new untethered jailbreak.
For all we know the untethered iOS 6.1 jailbreak iPhone 5 release can take place on Sunday, which actually is Super Bowl Sunday. There has always been an argument that Sundays are the worst day for releasing a jailbreak as it does not get the amount of online coverage when compared to a normal working day. That argument is based on solid logic, but then again, who are we to question when the great jailbreakers bestow upon us a brand spanking new untethered jailbreak.
This new untethered jailbreak will be compatible with iOS 6.0 as well as iOS 6.1. The best part is that it is going to be compatible with all new devices such as the iPhone 5, iPad mini, iPad 4 and iPod touch 5G. With the official confirmations being made, it is safe to say that untethered iOS 6.1 jailbreak iPhone 5 release is indeed going to take place very soon.
