I just cant believe that it’s happened this much faster. Yes, iPhone 5 has just been jailbroken on the latest iOS firmware update iOS 6 by one of the popular iOS developers, chpwn. He has reported about iPhone 5 jailbreak via Twitter. Since he is a reputed member in the iOS jailbreak community, we have to believe it and the pictures he posted look perfectly legit which has iPhone 5’s 1136 x 640 resolution.

But still the big question has not been answered. What type jailbreak has done with iOS 6 on the latest iPhone 5 ?. Is it an untethered jailbreak or just tethered ?. Most of you might have already heard that iOS 6 Beta versions were jailbroke by the developers which include iOS 6 GM jailbreak also, so i think its not a tough task for them to do the same on the original iOS 6. Here in this case chpwn posted an image which shows that Cydia is running on iPhone 5 which has iOS 6 as the default OS. For beta releases and iOS 6 GM version jailbreak, there was no Cydia installed after the jailbreak. That is the reason why i strongly believe, the latest iPhone 5 jailbreak by chpwn is an untethered action. MuscleNerd from iPhone Dev Team has also confirmed chpwn’s action regarding the iPhone 5 jailbreak on iOS 6.
Some of you had experienced the wait for A5 untethered jailbreak last time even though the pictures of jailbroken iPhone were released soon. It took a few months to get an untethered solution for A5 devices such as iPhone 4S and iPad 3. So, i think the case will not be different for iPhone 5. Final release of iPhone 5 untethered jailbreak on iOS 6 may take the same like iPhone 4S or more than it.
We are just waiting for more regarding iPhone 5 untethered jailbreak. This is an update from one in the many. Other jailbreaking giants like pod2g, i0n1c etc are there for more. So stay with us tuned for more updates of iPhone 5 jailbreak on iOS 6.
