 IntelliScreenX running on an iPhone 5.

P0sixninja from the Chronic Dev Team just tweeted out some good news regarding the untethered iOS 6 jailbreak. After arguing about how the teamwork was being managed he stated that he had found the “BootROM and decryption keys for A5/A5X/A6/A6X” followed by a tweet that helps clarify ”it’s at least a starting point for finding a new bootrom exploit, and makes userland jailbreaks 1000% easier.”  He then stated that despite working on his own he has gotten far. This is great news as it shows that at least someone is hard and work and progressing to make the jailbreak. He even states at the end that finding a few more addresses is essentially all that is left in the process.

The jailbreak to be released will for for all devices (iPhone 5, 4S, 4, 3GS, iPod Touch 5, 4, iPad 3,2) and it will most likely be untethered.

Also Plantbeing doing great, and released some more information it became apparent that he was working on what would be a releasable jailbreak and not just a developer failbreak: “Can’t say too much, but we’re still missing critical pieces so it’s not releasable right now. Believe me, we’d love to release it asap.” He added, “It’s mostly working, as you can see, but I run into weird bugs every day and have to fix them as they come up.”

As for the ETA, all we currently know is that Planetbeing will not release the jailbreak on a Sunday this time around–as he’s promised not to. Other than that, he refuses to comment on whether the jailbreak is weeks or months away.
