    Despite the ridiculousness, it appears that this team has actually come up with something amazing.

    Just a matter of time until a full JB can be released!!! :D

    Every time people are hoping/expecting a jailbreak, there's always one troll, or a team of trolls, who pretend they are releasing an untethered jailbreak. Even though they always turn out to be frauds, thousands (tens of thousands??) of people believe it. It's mind boggling how so many people fall for this time and time again.

    Unless the established hackers co-sign a no name jailbreak, I don't even give it one second of my attention.

    Yes, these guys have been trolling, but last night they released a tool that puts A5+ devices into pwnDFU mode. This is legit.

    Fom Planetbeing on reddit 1 day ago:

    "Somewhat contradictory. They claimed they had no way to turn off code sign on July 21: https://twitter.com/UnthreadedJB/status/359123979979591680 But turning on verbose mode requires adding a boot argument to the kernel. Another boot argument can turn off code sign, so the ability to do one implies the other. Adding a boot argument requires a bootloader level exploit AFAIK.
    Given the current evidence, the simplest explanation is that something is being faked: i.e. either the video or the tweet is a lie."

    It is a repackaged evasi0n which lifts the 5.1 restriction that the evad3rs put in place.

    Saurik also pitched in the reddit thread.

    The JB exploits used for a cdma iphone 4 on 5.1 where always there and released by the dev team for 5.1.1. Same exact thing. All they did was package a program for that specific model iphone and firmware only.

    yep and already named and shamed:

    ATTENTION: This Tool is NOT a jailbreak. This Tool is a proof that they indeed have a bottom exploit. This tool will ONLY put your device in pwnedDFU mode, which is exactly what the tool claims to be doing (read the log). pwnedDFU can only be achieved with an hardware exploit.
    I have an i4 and others posted that this uses a modified version of SHatter (Chronic Dev's never released, though well documented, A4 exploit) that supposedly works on all devices. It your turn to test this on non-A4 devices. And report here ofc.
    EDIT: It is confirmed to just be a repackage of SHatter, meaning this only works on A4 devices. This tool is useless, redsn0w does the same exact thing using the limera1n exploit.

    When will these people ever learn…. sigh

    Lol:D
    They're just repackaging old tools and exploits and calling it theirs. And then make false claims that it does this and that where in reality it doesn't.
    Not sure why anyone would trust or bother.
    If it was legit it would be acknowledged, verified and used by millions already obviously;)

    As annoying as these trolls are to me, in the end I always laugh at how gullible people are. It's just a microcosm for humanity. If people want something badly enough, no matter how unlikely, they'll still trick their minds into believing its true. In some respects this can be a healthy approach to certain lifestyle changes, but in this context, its strictly comical. When will people learn! Haha

    This sounds like nVidia, rebranding or rebadging old hardware to make it look new.

    and another from planetbeing on reddit:
    Apparently UnthreadedJB Released Their Bootrom Exploit? door circa2kin jailbreak
    [–]planetbeing
    Why do you say that? I don't think that's true. All his releases are of previously released or publicized exploits.
