It seems that a stream of good news has been opened for the fans of jailbreak by two jailbreakers, if not all.

The two jailbreakers, who played very crucial role in opening Apple's last mobile operating system iOS 5 for Cydia, Pod2g and Planetbeing are yet again digging deep into the Apple's latest iOS 6.

Pod2g recently posted on his Twitter account addressing Plantetbeing, "Hey @planetbeing, please look at your IRC, I think I have good news!"

Though the details about the 'good news' were not given out by any of the jailbreakers, it seems that Pod2g has found out some vulnerability in the iOS.

Followers of Pod2g on Twitter also asked the same question, however, so far there is no response from the hacker.

Replying to a follower's query about the 'good news' another follower of Pod2g tweeted, "@JailbreakMatrix @pod2g @planetbeing fingers crossed its a code execution."

Last week also, Planetbeing posted on his account expressing his happiness about his findings.  "Made some nice progress today with @pod2g. I think I'll try to reward myself with a nap. :)"

Responding to Planetbeing's message Pod2g also declared his progress, "@planetbeing oh yeah! 2 new vulnerabilities in a day, chance was with us. But we still miss that initial code execution for a public jb :/"

Apart from the development, Planetbeing looks like he is not happy with the so much discussions and talks going on about the jailbreak. "Why is everyone getting so excited about the jailbreak?" he asked.

No matter how difficult it is to jailbreak Apple's latest OS, Planetbeing is leading the jailbreak community, as far as iOS 6 jailbreak is concerned.

When iOS 6 users had lost hopes of getting an untethered jailbreak, Planetbeing was the one who went ahead saying the jailbreak is possible and he has already running iOS 6.0.2 untethered jailbreak in his iPhone 5.

"Yeah, I'm not really sure what all the doom and gloom is about. The fact is, I have an untethered iOS 6.0.2 JB running on my iPhone 5 right now," he had said in a post Reddit.
