    From /u/planetbeing's reddit post history:.

    "I actually have source code for a jailbreak based on a bug that is going to be closed for 6.1 (so might as well release it for 6.x right?). However, it would require a developer account to actually use. I really agonized over releasing it, but unfortunately I was convinced that doing so might encourage a lot of people breaking Apple Developer agreements and might be seen as something of tortious interference on my part. My peers also commented that the source code release might allow Apple insight into some of the techniques I used which while not bugs or vulnerabilities by themselves, might allow them to develop better mitigations. In the end, the risk was not worth the potential benefits."

    Interesting, a shame the exploit couldn't be put to use.

    But it was confirmed he finished the jb for 6.1 - what is this exploit he's on about?
