Are you a hacker? How do you know this? Because they don't tweet every step they make?

And as already said, the failbreak cannot be released because it would be technically illegal to utilize let alone distribute. That said, it also could provide valuable insight into future 'legal' jailbreaks so they don't wanna throw away any potential exploits.

You are so short sighted !

Despite the obvious problems with the requirement to be registered as a developer, as soon as the failbreak sees the light of day, Apple would quickly eliminate all the exploits in the release of 6.1

We would never see an untethered jailbreak for 6.1 or newer devices.

Imagine how loudly you would complain when that would happen.

..you dont have to be registered as a dev to use the failbreak

Upgraded the #failbreak with a kernel exploit so tweaks actually work on iPhone 5. Almost a full tethered JB, though need dev account.

ok i have an iphone 5 with unlimited plan that i am not willing to give up. i need a hotspot for my ipad mini for school (i take night classes and they turn off the wireless at night) i was looking into the pay as you go hotspots but they are expensive. and i use over 5gig a month on my iphone as it is so i can't and won't change plans.

anyone know even a little bit of enough to tell me if we can expect a JB for the iphone 5 in the next 2 months or should i buy a shotspot'''';

Buy a hotspot or trade your iPhone for a Galaxy S3 or Nexus 4. You could also trade the iPad for a cellular equipped model. I don't expect to see a jailbreak before March at the earliest. AT&T has caught on to everybody tethering without a plan and its gotten to the point that it's almost not worth losing the unlimited data over (I have the same plan btw) now since they seem to be catching people no matter what device and method.

Not enough people care about a JB to bother let alone the millions out there who don't even know what a JB is or even bothered to update the FW on their phone since the day they bought it.

It's going to be release this thread has a bunch of trolling. iPad 3 took forever to jailbreak, it still came.

the same question for you. HOW can you say that you wont get a jailbreak for 6.1 or newer devices. you are so short SIGHTED. dude there has been no response from them on this. they arent even working on it. so how do you think you will be getting the jailbreak for 6.0,6.0.1,6.0.2???

Maybe because dhlizard is a bit closer to the sources than most of us...

Besides that, the main players have given some subtle hints lately, so yes they are working on it, that you choose not to accept that is fine with me.

Just because the hackers who are working on the current jailbreak have not chosen to provide updates does not mean there is no one working on it.

Those of us who have been part of the jailbreak community for more than a wisp of time are used to not hearing regular updates during the creation of a new jailbreaks. The exception to this pattern was @pod2g, the hacker who provided much of the work for the last jailbreak. He was one to give loads of progress reports.
But that is not the norm. This time, as in almost every jailbreak in the past years, there are very few updates provided. And yet the jailbreaks have come on a regular basis.

No. iPad 3 came out in mid march and the waif for its jailbreak was shorter than that of the 4S

This may sound nuts, but it will work:
Purchase a used original iPhone2G and also a sim adapter. When you need a hotspot you can place your iP5 sim in the 2G (jailbroken with, "www.jailbreak.me" on 3.1.3) and use the EDGE network. Not super fast, but get the job done with tethering.
When you're done tethering place the iP5 sim back into your iPhone5 and you're set.

Can't he just use tether.com?

Tethering over Edge network would be very painfull bro.
Why not do what you suggested but purchase a used iphone 3G instead?
Then he can tether at least using 3G speeds and any iphone 3G can be JB untethered on 4.2.1 and use tetherme, mywi, pdanet etc...

Sounds good. I just thought as he would never get caught with AT&T using EDGE for tethering and likely might using 3G that would be his best play.

(Works for me.)

I don't think anyone here is trolling, there is even a link posted by a jailbraker saying apple made it harder with 6.1...everyone knows it is getting harder, I still believe there will be a jailbreak, but the question is when...we got one I think it was mid January 2012 for the 4s...I think it will be later than that for the 5/iOS6

True, I didnt think of that.
AT&T is cracking down on unofficial tethering.

Neither has musclenerd said anything in months.

Last year it was released at the end of December, but since there is no evidence of anyone working on it right now I'd say there won't be anytime soon.

I don't know if the jailbreak scene is over or not, but it sure looks like it.

We saw it coming. I don't care too much since I now have a SGS3 and it can be jailbreak and tweaked very easily and its awesome.
You mean rooted? Kinda funny when people leave the iOS scene and go t android and when they root their devices they still call it "jail breaking"

It hasn't reach it's peak. With every subsequent jailbreak more people and/or devices are getting jailbroken.
