Are you frustrated by the lack of good jailbreak options for iOS 6? Yearning for an untethered solution? One that will work on all the latest hardware? If what one dev has been saying is true, Christmas may be coming early for you this year, and a full-featured untethered iOS 6 jailbreak could be arriving on December 22.
The anonymous dev, who claims not to be a part of any larger iOS hacking team, intends to release his Dream JB jailbreak one week from this coming Saturday. Supposedly, it will work on both iOS 6.0 and 6.0.1, and supports Apple’s latest SoCs, letting it operate on the iPhone 5 and this year’s iPad models (including the mini).
That’s a pretty big claim, and realizing that a little evidence could go a long way, the dev intends to post a video tomorrow showing the full process in action. From what he’s shared so far, users are first going to have to trigger a Webkit exploit to get the iOS device into a state where the full jailbreak is possible. While a little more convoluted than a straight-up one-click jailbreak, he claims it will still be very easy to do.
At the risk of setting ourselves up for disappointment, this all sounds very encouraging, and you can bet that we’ll be bringing you news of this Dream JB proof tomorrow, should it arrive as scheduled.
