The Possible iOS 6 Jailbreak Could Be a Hoax

If you're a part of any hacking scene, hoaxes are pretty much a part of everyday life. More often than not, the story is almost always the same. At an intense time of need, a completely unknown group comes along and promises us something that exceeds far beyond even what the most prominent developers have been able to accomplish. Such seems to be the case with DreamJB's new claim that they have an untethered iOS 6 jailbreak for devices as new as the iPhone 5, but is that really the case?

If history can be used as a decent barometer, then many followers are going to be inclined to say yes. After all, the iPhoneDev team alongside Chronic have been working for quite some time now at giving us a feasible option on Apple's latest system software. Sure, some of the older A4-based devices can make a tethered jailbreak using tools like Sn0wbreeze, but most of us don't want to be so tied  down to a computer when phones have become such an important part of our lives. That being said, untethered is always best.

 

That's why it seems just a little bit suspicious that a completely new name has finally come to give us exactly what we want even on some of the very newest pieces of hardware. Many of the community veterans are urging users to take great care when the supposed jailbreak is released next week. As iH8sn0w very rightly put it, "Never trust anyone who has never released anything credible in the past." After all, it seems reasonable to think that a virus might very easily be spread through a method as popular as this.

 

While we will probably know more next week, in general the scene warns us to proceed with caution.
