Pod2g, the hacker behind recent untethered jailbreaks, says that work on a jailbreak of iOS 6 is still ongoing. He has recently been encouraging Twitter users to demand an open iOS from Apple leading to speculation that the Dev-Teams had given up.
I read some coms on the internet today saying that if I started #weWantAnOpenIOS it is because we can't jailbreak iOS 6 and Apple won.
This is false in many ways. Firstly, the jailbreak is being developed in the underground, and is just not ready for a public release.
Secondly, it's not the jailbreaker that talked with this message, as I am not involved in security research for some months now, working on
my application and other projects. If the only possible way to #weWantAnOpenIOS is the jailbreak, it'll happen. It is not the end!
Or course, a jailbreak (although not one ready for public release) has already been demonstrated by chpwn. In addition, pod2g previously announced that he was not working on a jailbreak of iOS 6.
