iOS 5.1.1 was only released a short time ago, and already a little bit of buzz has been generated about iOS 6, the next edition to Apple’s mobile operating system which hasn’t even been officially announced by the company yet. Apple is expected to debut iOS 6 to the world at their annual WWDC event, which is slated begin on June 11.
Yesterday, @pod2g and colleagues released Absinthe 2.0, which has the power to provide an untethered jailbreak solution for our iOS devices under iOS 5.1.1. Later, pod2g claimed that the Devs already have part of the iOS 6 jailbreak done, despite it not actually being in existence to the public yet (or announced). According to the famous hacker, when Apple launches iOS 6, a jailbreak solution will not be far from ready.
We won’t give up on jailbreaking iOS devices because this is too important for us and we already have a part of the jailbreak for iOS 6 and we will be ready right on time for it. […]
We will not give you the exact recipe, but we have other exploits that we won’t release at any time. This is our secret. It allows us to inject stuff into new devices and to start dumping the memory. When we have the dumps, we look at different ways of finding the vulnerability.
Apple is expected to release iOS 6 alongside its next-generation iPhone handset later this year. Apple has started a trend of launching a major release of their new mobile OS right alongside their next big device upgrades. Last year, both the new mobile operating system and the iPhone 4S launched in fall, and it’s possible that the same trend may be followed this year. I’ve had my iPhone 4 ever since it launched the first day at AT&T, and I’m sure I’m going to stick with it until I see what Apple has up their sleeve with the next big product release.
I gotta say, I’m glad to see that the devs are already ahead of the game this time. It’s nice to know that hard work today could lead to far more time off in the future (and by far more… I mean a few days. These guys work really hard).
