Have no fear, iPhone 5 jailbreak is near

Have no fear, iPhone 5 jailbreak is near
Chronic Dev developer planetbeing issued this picture showing his white iPhone 5 well on its way to be jailbroken from the Cupertino shackles. Notice the abundance of unauthorized widgets in the pull-down notification bar? Nice.

Have no fear, iPhone 5 jailbreak is near
At this stage, he says, the puzzle is still falling into place, as Apple made the phone harder to jailbreak, or likely the existing exploits have been patched, so the hacker is looking for new ones, and making strides in the process from the looks of it:

I would characterize it more as finding the missing pieces rather than debugging at this stage. Typically the messiest part of the jailbreak process has been installing it in the first place... We’re further along than WWJC. But again, I can’t give any specifics. The jailbreak itself is stable but we’re missing needed exploits. I can’t discuss what we’re missing."

If history is any indication, we should see the first jailbreaking solutions for the iPhone 5 next month, and asked whether the situation with the exploits is still "grim", like he said at WWJC few weeks ago, the hacker this time answered "Not at all." Now that it's legal, why not.
