Untethered iOS 6 Jailbreak Promised for iPhone 5, 4S on December 22nd

By  |  28 Comments

An un-named hacker promises the first untethered iOS 6 jailbreak for the iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPad 2, 3 and 4 on December 22nd.

Dream Jailbreak announced plans to release an untethered iPhone 5 jailbreak that runs on iOS 6.0 and iOS 6.1 later this month. This iOS 6 jailbreak tool is reportedly capable of jailbreaking most current Apple devices, including the iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPad 2 and newer, iPad Mini as well as the iPod Touch fourth gen and newer.

This would be an improvement over the tethered iPhone 4 jailbreak on iOS 6 with Cydia. An Un-tethered jailbreak allows users to reboot the device without it attached to a computer, and is more realistic for daily use.

iOS 6 jailbreak untethered release

Dream Jailbreak claims an untethered iOS 6 jailbreak release date for December 22.

According to the Dream Jailbreak hacker, proof of the iOS 6 jailbreak is going live on Wednesday December 12th, in the form of an un-edited video that will show the entire iOS 6 jailbreak process.

The jailbreak is not a one-click and done jailbreak, but according to the Dream Jailbreak Team this new iOS 6 jailbreak is, “very easy to do.” This is reportedly a userland exploit so Apple will fix it quickly.

The iOS 6 jailbreak process will install Cydia according to the Dream Jailbreak FAQ. Cydia lets the users install tweaks and new apps not approved by Apple. It’s important to note that not all new cydia apps and tweaks are capable of running on the iPhone 5.

Joshua Hill, a well-known iOS hacker, Tweeted “They’re all fake” on December 8th, but did not call out Dream Jailbreak specifically, though he did address the ARB Dev team which claimed to show an iPhone 4S jailbreak on iOS 6 recently.

The video above is not tied to the Dream Jailbreak’s upcoming video of proof, but some experts claim the video might be a developer account phone running a compiled version of Cydia.

The Dream Jailbreak Untethered iOS 6 Jailbreak release date is swiftly approaching and it looks like the tool will support Windows and Mac. There is no information on whether the iPhone 5 jailbreak is a free release or if the Dream Jailbreak will ask users to pay to jailbreak.

    the only problem is that the kid that created the video hasn’t shown any proof what so ever ! you need to at the very least show a Cydia app or tweak running which he HASN’T DONE at all !!! so as far as I’m concerned it never happened !

      He hasn’t released his video yet. On his website and twitter he’s been assuring us that the video, due tomorrow, will be one shot, showing the jailbreak procedure, instillation, application, and a working cydia

        sorry man, I was commenting on the video that is in this article and not dreamJB. the meathead in the above youtube video has not shown 1 single app or tweak running on his phone and what he is showing is not proof.

      First I’ve heard of it? I don’t understand this new trend of exact release dates? Every previous break has been released when complete, not completed, waited and then released :s seems dodgy to me, but fingers crossed they arnt just more glorified scams involving cash

    maybe these guys believed in the mayan apocalypse and thought we’d be all dead by the 22nd!!

    Anyone know if there is a jailbreak for iphone 4s on ios 6 yet?

      Nothing yet as far a JB for ip 4S running IOS 6.0 or above. Everyone had said that the real dev’s are dicks because they said a JB probably won’t come out of left field as these last 4-5 fakes have. As soon as they say this one or that one is fake people start saying they are full of themselves but look at the facts : no one has come out of left field and produced a legit JB and everyone that has tried has been proved as fake ass loosers with too much time on their hands.

      Another LIAR ! dude, put up a video of proof that you are in fact on an A5 chipset and that its running IOS 6 or higher and then show a popular Cydia tweak running on it.

      Yeah, that’s what I thought. NO PROOF.
