In case you live under a rock, you have probably figured out by now that the long anticipated iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak was released earlier today. This jailbreak is a common effort of several high profile iOS hacker, but we can all agree to admit that pod2g was the leading force behind Absinthe.
In an interview that took place a few hours ago, pod2g revealed an important fact about Apple’s next mobile OS. According to pod2g, the team is already one step ahead of Apple and has the necessary pieces to work on a jailbreak for iOS 6…
How can they have parts of a jailbreak for iOS 6 when iOS 6 beta hasn’t even been seeded to developers, you may ask? It’s my understanding that what Cyril (pod2g’s real name) means is that the hackers have several more exploits up their sleeves that they assume will still be valid for iOS 6. Of course, only time will tell, but assuming no intel leaks, one can be confident that a jailbreak for iOS 6 should be available shortly after its release.
So why don’t they release jailbreaks faster if they have all those exploits available? pod2g explains:
I don’t know about you, but I really like to find out more about what’s happening behind the scene. I’m really looking forward to meeting those guys at JailbreakCon in a few months and find out more about how they work.
