iOS-based jailbreak fans have been waiting patiently for an untethered iOS 6 jailbreak for quite some time now, and while there have been a few leaks on the web providing the anticipated jailbreak, most of them have turned out to be fakes. Now it has been stated that the public version of the anticipated iOS 6 untethered jailbreak could arrive as soon as Dec. 22.
Hacker DreamJB has come out with the latest information on his official page as well as Twitter account.
“I have been receiving a high volume of emails. I will address your questions as efficiently as I can. A twitter account has recently been set up to help manage public relations. I am merely a one man army, folks. I apologise for any delay in responding to your inquiries. Recurring questions will have their answers posted on an FAQ page which will appear on this site in the coming week,” states DreamJB.
Interestingly enough, DreamJB also states that he is not affiliated with the official Dev team in any way, and this may lead to a few doubts regarding the legitimacy of the hacker, especially in times when a host of fake leaks are doing rounds on the web and, accordingly, misleading jailbreak fans.
DreamJB says that the first untethered iOS 6 jailbreak will be exclusively available on his official page and will arrive on Dec. 22. As far as his Twitter page is concerned, he mentions the availability of the untethered iOS 6 jailbreak for Christmas and has also extended an invitation to “media colleagues for more detailed discussion regarding Dream.”
This news, if true, could be a major breakthrough for jailbreak fans as it has been mentioned repeatedly that the jailbreak process has been much slower than ever due to heavier iOS 6 protections and security measures.
“The protections in iOS6 are ridiculous… it surpasses any OS ever created… it will be a long slow process,” Chronic Dev team member Joshua Hill previously tweeted.
Hill is known for being the mind behind important Jailbreak tools such as GreenPois0n and more recently Absinthe. He left the Chronic Dev Team last July.
