    The title is not entirely correct, there is a jailbreak, but it needs a developer account, so it can't be released to the public.

    Yes we are in for a wait, whats new...

    I am happy to wait for the iOS 6 / iPhone 5 jailbreak.

    These guys work hard and give the jailbreak to us for free (although I donate $10 - 15 every time) so they can take as long as they need to.

    Sensational thread title. This JB, like others, will undoubtedly take time.

    Wishful thinking. I sincerely hope you're right but it's extremely unlikely. The 4S took 3 full months. Then the 5.1.1 jailbreak took another 3 months. I would not be surprised to see the same thing happen with the iPhone 5. It's likely we won't see it until December or January.

    Of course this is just a blind guess on my part based on the lifespan of iOS5 and the 4S. I have been known to be completely wrong in the past and I hope this is one of those times! But if I mentally prepare for a 3-4 month wait, then I won't get my hopes up. Expectations are premeditated resentments!

    hmm yes i think my 1 month claim is a bit off. this is my 1st time jailbreaking and i always somehow thought the jailbreaks take a month max. dint know the diff between tethered and untethered jailbreak. but now after reading up quite a bit and knowing the time frame it tok for the other jailbreaks im beginning to think december/jan... lets see how it goes.

    All I know is it will take as long as it takes no more no less. I think people whining and crying about it (no ts I don't necessarily mean you) irritates the hackers and only delays it. I know it will never stop but Pod2g among others is already getting irritated on twitter.

    To be clear : there's no iOS 6 jailbreak ready. It's going to take weeks or months to have one. Please stop asking me about it…

    It will be some time before a public jailbreak.

    Everytime we have a new firmware level, the n00bs always rush into claiming the jailbreak will be out any day.

    And those of us who know better, just chuckle since we know these release day jailbreaks are done via developer tools which cannot and will not be useful for a general release jailbreak.

    If this is you're first JB, then you have a LOT of learning to do and can definitely not predict a JB release. I don't say this to be rude, but even I have been around the JB scene since iOS 3.x.x days, and I am still learning lots about the JB community and cannot expect/predict any timeframe. Learning the difference between un/tethered JB's isn't even the beginning of it.

    I'm not sure I understand the point of this thread. We're in exactly the same situation we're always in when a new firmware/device is released. The jailbreakers quickly jailbreak the firmware on old devices (and sometimes new devices) using private exploits that cannot be shared. That allows developers to start updating Cydia, mobile substrate, and other Cydia apps for the new OS. Then they work with old exploits like Limera1n that allow them relatively quickly to bring jailbreaks to older devices. Then they work to release tools that will allow older devices to be upgraded without upgrading the baseband so that unlocks can be preserved. After all that is done, people really get down to working on exploits for the newest devices.

    They should have a tutorial "How to jailbreak if you're a dev" and release that.

    If you are a true developer, you wouldn't need a tutorial.

    Of course, this doesn't apply to all the wannabe's who just registered their UUID to install beta firmware.

    Right after they publish "How to drive a nail if you're a carpenter" and "How to throw a football if you're Peyton Manning".

    There is great reason why they don't have a tutorial.

    The possibility of truly screwing things up are likely to be much higher. The non-tutorial weeds out the laymen who will screw things up and come crying.

    So very true.

    Look how many can't manage to use Redsn0w or Absinthe.
    And both of those require only a single mouse click :eek:

    There might also be some legal issues, you don't want Apple on your doorstep with a subpoena

    What if you are learning? Producing code, for self use, because you need the code.

    I have a dev account, I don't know how to jailbreak iOS6 with it. I want to learn.

    If you are a developer, then you know that your use of your account is subject to non-disclosure agreements which would preclude publication of this information. I'm sorry, but they're not going to jeopardize their dev accounts so some newbie can jailbreak his phone a little early.

    If you are indeed a coder, then you should already know the basics for finding bugs to crash the system and exploit the code. There is also this great thing called Google search.
