Jailbreak for iOS 6.x coming in a matter of days

Jailbreak for iOS 6.x coming in a matter of days
Over the years, iPhones, iPads, and all iOS devices in general have been getting more and more difficult for hackers to jailbreak. Yet eventually, an exploitable crack in the system shows up, thus allowing those with the right skills to enable sideloading unlicensed third-party software onto Apple's smartphones and tablets.

That's exactly what's happening right now as even the latest version of iOS 6 is to get an official jailbreak over the coming days. Team evasi0n, which is made of talented code-cracking experts like pod2g, pimskeks, planetbeing, and musclenerd, is currently finalizing the software required for the procedure and will make it available as soon as it is ready. 

The jailbreaking tool should work with iPhone,iPad and iPod touch devices running iOS 6.0 or 6.1, and a computer running Windows, Mac OS, or Linux will be required to perform the hack. The only other thing one will need in order to jailbreak is an USB cable and that's pretty much it. 

One must keep in mind, however, that even with a jailbreaking tool available on iOS 6.x, unlocking an iPhone for use with another carrier is now illegal. Also, your favorite source of pirated third-party software Installous is now gone, although alternatives have started appearing. For more information about the upcoming iOS 6.0 and 6.1 jailbreak, keep an eye on evasi0n team's web site, available at the link below.

That means heavy customisation is possible on day one. So if the device shipped with ICS, I may be able to flash JB to it.

You can still install apps without it being jailbroken, you know?

Expect Apple to sue the jail-breaking community over the recent expiration of the exception to the Digital Millenium Copyright Act. You heard it first on PA.

Wait a minute, is it a coincidence that there is a jailbreak a about the same time there is an expected drop in iPhone sales?

I was wondering when they will be ready. I was trying to jailbreak my cousins iPhone two days ago when I saw that it can be done yet. Don't know why he doesn't just stop fooling around with this stuff and get Android. Only reason he wants it done so he can download emulators and keyboards.
