iOS 6 Jailbreak Fakes Pod2G & Chronic Dev Team to Rip Off Jailbreakers

By  |  0 Comments

A new iOS 6 jailbreak site claims that pod2g and the Chronic Dev Team released Absinthe v3 with an iPhone 5 jailbreak and other Apple devices running iOS 6 and iOS 6.0.1.

The tool claims to offer an iPhone 4S jailbreak, iPad 4th generation jailbreak, iPad mini jailbreak and all other current Apple iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices.

The trick includes a re-creation of pod2g’s iOS blog and a fake Chronic Dev Team Website that asks users to complete an offer before downloading the supposed iOS 6 jailbreak.

Site claiming to offer an iOS 6 jailbreak from pod2g and the Chronic Dev Team.

Aside from the lack of an iOS 6 jailbreak release, there are big problems with this offer.

While it looks remarkably similar to pod2g’s iOS blog, the fake blogspot site is a copy of the real deal, with a new post. This post claims that Absinthe v3.0 is out, and points to what looks like greenp0ison, but really directs to another fake blogspot account.

The 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak I talked about for weeks now is out. Hopefully.

The wait is over !

Enjoy guys !

On the fake Absinthe site, which is not the official Chronic Dev Team Website, jailbreakers will find the following mis-information.

Absinthe 3.0 supports the following devices on 6.0 and 6.0.1:

iPad 1, iPad 2, iPad 3, iPad 4, iPad mini

iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5

iPod touch 3rd generation, iPod touch 4th generation, iPod touch 5th generation

Just as with the other fake, this is not true, though it uses a writing style similar to that found on greenpois0n.com. Note the different web address.

Users that follow through and try to download the iOS 6 jailbreak are asked to complete a survey or offer, which will provide the site owner with money, but won’t provide a working iOS 6 or iOS 6.0.1 jailbreak.

Asking users to complete an offer to get an iPhone 5 jailbreak.

The Chronic Dev Team, iPhone Dev Team and pod2g do not require payment or ask users to complete an offer for a jailbreak. The teams accept donations, but these are not payment for a jailbreak.

While there is progress on the iPhone 5 jailbreak, there is still much work to be done. The iPhone 4S jailbreak is tied to the iPhone 5 jailbreak success. Hackers already performed an iPad 4th Generation jailbreak and an iPad mini jailbreak, but neither is ready for a public release.

This isn’t the first iPhone 5 jailbreak fake we’ve seen, but it came to our attention in comments where users spread misinformation about the jailbreak.

Stay tuned for more iPhone 5 jailbreak and iOS 6 jailbreak news.
