The year 2012 has been an exceptional year, considering the developments in the field of technology taking place all over the world. Major share of these developments constitutes from Apple’s whole new line of gadgets coming along for public this season. Considering the all new A6-chip powered iPhone 5, then iPod Touch 5G, and an all new operating system for them, the iOS 6, we have a big question thrown towards the jailbreak community- When to expect an untethered iOS 6 jailbreak? Here’s all you need to know about untethered iOS 6 jailbreak, and whether to expect it or not in the future.

Is An Untethered iOS 6 Jailbreak Available?

The answer is a clear NO. There has been no development in the field of jailbreaking when it comes to Apple’s iOS 6 running on latter end chipsets including A5/A6 chip processors. The devices targeted by A5 and A6 chip processors are Apple iPhone 4S and Apple iPhone 5 and Apple iPod Touch 5G. The whole jailbreak community has come to a stand still since there is no bootrom exploit available for these devices. The A4 chip devices like Apple iPhone 4 on the other hand do support bootrom exploits, but the results are not really good. You can not expect more than a tethered iOS 6 jailbreak on Apple iPhone 4S, and talking about Apple iPhone 4S and iPhone 5, jailbreaking is not at all possible at this point of time. Similarly, Apple iPhone 3GS and iPod Touch can be tethered jailbroken with the latest RedSnow version. Further, if you depend on software/hardware unlocking methods on your iDevice, we recommend you to keep away from the iOS 6 update at first.

When To Expect Official Untethered iOS 6 Jailbreak?

Members of the jailbreak community are working day and night to encounter possible exploits on the iOS 6 operating system, however the results are not really remarkable.  When to expect an untethered iOS 6 jailbreak might be the most common question at this point of time, but there’s no definite answer to this question. Apple is working equally hard to make its operating system and hardware jailbreak-proof, and certainly getting an upper edge currently. Considering iOS 5 only, it took about three good months for dev-team members to come up with a working exploit or call it untethered jailbreak.

Few days back we had Chpwn, our friend from Twitter and one of the active jailbreak members who has already jailbroken his iPhone 5 running on iOS 6. However, he adds that the whole process is still buggy and a stable release might take a lot more time. If things work the way they should, we can expect a working untethered iOS 6 jailbreak in a couple of months.

Is This The End Of Jailbreaking And Unlocking?

Certainly NOT. This does not mean an end to jailbreaking and unlocking on latter Apple devices. We have reports coming from all over the world where people have found some exploits in iOS 6. Once things become a little stable, a working untethered iOS 6 jailbreak can be expected. Unlocking is the next step, and can be discussed only when iOS 6 becomes jailbreakable on iPhone 4S and iPhone 5. In case you own an A4 chip devices, we don’t really recommend you to tether jailbreak your devices at this moment due to bugs and instability with Cydia packages.
