iOS 6.0.1 Untethered Jailbreak Release Date Fake - It has been a long time since Apple received iOS 6 along with the 5th Generation iPhone and still we haven’t seen an untethered jailbreak (even the tethered one is for pre-A5 devices). The jailbreak devs are hard at work to develop a jailbreak but Apple’s security measures inside iOS 6 have proved too hard to break and recently, a few fake developers have propped up with fake screenshots and videos of jailbreaks claiming to have developed a jailbreak for the iOS 6 . And now “Dream Jailbreak” is another developer which is saying that it has developed a jailbreak for the latest iOS 6.0.1 which would be released on 22nd December.
iOS 6.0.1 Untethered Jailbreak Release Date Fake
We don’t have a particularly great reason for why it can’t be a legitimate jailbreak but here are a few things that clear it up. First of all, there is the thing that this is a completely unknown developer and over that, Dream Jailbreak is not collaborating with any of the main Jailbreak developers like Comex, MuscleNerd or P0sixninja. He claims that,
“(he is) here to show the world that the source of an exploit or jailbreak can be from outside the norm.”
Even if we take that to be true then there is the question that why would he make a teaser website, announce a jailbreak video for next week and announce the release date for his supposed-jailbreak release?
nitoTV(a well-known jailbreak-dev) says that lone developers take some time to come into the jailbreaking field and,
“Even when @comex did it he was still talking to people with credibility and working with them to a slight degree. And when geohot did it, [the jailbreak] was much easier to do comparatively. We don’t even have a good tethered jailbreak for 6.0 or a good working version of Cydia.”
Another popular jailbreak developer iH8sn0w claims that jailbreak videos can be easily faked too so we really shouldn’t get too excited by this Dream Jailbreak. Anyway, 22nd December is just a couple of weeks away and that would prove whether Dream Jailbreak is true or not.
Update: The hacker i0n1c known as Stefan Esser the German hacker the developed of iOS 4.3.x Untethered Jailbreak exploit has also confirmed via his twitter account that Dream Jailbreak is a fake jailbreak account and has more than 1000 victims.
