With the release of the iPhone 5 and iOS 6, we’re sure that there are many iOS users out there who are itching to have their devices jailbroken. Unfortunately if that describes your current situation, you might be in for a wait. This was revealed by none other than pod2g during the JailbreakCon 2012 where he stated that there is no working untethered jailbreak available for iOS 6 yet. In case some of you guys came across a photo of a jailbroken iPhone 5 (pictured above), that is apparently what is known as a “failbreak” and is actually a version available only to developers which means that it is by no means suitable for regular folks like you and me. No word on when an untethered jailbreak will be available for iOS 6 or the iPhone 5, although it has been suggested that we could be waiting for months, so until then for those who want a jailbroken iOS device, you will need to downgrade back to iOS 5.1.1.
