iOS Hacker Pod2g is ‘Very Confident’ About iOS 6 Jailbreak


Cyril Cattiaux, better known as pod2g, is a very prominent iOS hacker and member of the jailbreaking community. Cattiaux, along with other developers, has been working tirelessly on an untethered jailbreak for iOS 6.

The lack of a new jailbreak lately has resulted in the iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 and fourth-generation iPod touch being the only jailbroken devices on the latest iOS version thanks to the limera1n bootrom exploit. 

That might change in the foreseeable future, however, as Cattiaux is confident that a jailbreak for iOS 6 will inevitably be released. The security researcher recently spoke with iDownloadBlog about the potential of a complete iOS 6 jailbreak in under six months.

I’m very confident about the next 6 months. I honestly believe that iOS 6 will be jailbroken and that developers will keep coming up with more quality apps. Discussions about future tweaks during JailbreakCon have opened new doors. Creativity won’t stop.

iOS hacker Grant Paul (@chpwn) has already shown off the iPhone 5 in a jailbroken state, while the iPad mini has also already been jailbroken. Also, at the recent Hack In The Box conference in Malaysia, a panel of jailbreak developers spoke about having certain exploits up their sleeves that they are saving.

There is no question that new jailbreaking methods are being released much more sparingly lately, and it’s a shame that George Hotz (geohot) isn’t part of the scene anymore. But, at the same time, it’s good to hear that a number of individuals are still working hard on discovering vulnerabilities in the iOS platform.
