Tons of progress the last few days. I think the future is looking bright for jailbreaking.

Today is a great day as some news surfaces on Twitter about the status of the long-awaited iOS 6 jailbreak. Famous iOS hacker @planetbeing last night tweeted that he has made some significant progress towards a jailbreak for the newer iOS devices and that the future is “looking bright.” He also tweeted a few days ago showing that he and @pod2g are collaborating on the effort.
Made some nice progress today with @pod2g. I think I’ll try to reward myself with a nap.

Pod2g has finally released his first App Store application, and evidenced by the tweet above, has a little more time on his hands to spend on working on a jailbreak.
What exactly these tweets mean is yet to be seen, but we do know that we won’t be seeing a jailbreak until iOS 6.1 is released. Luckily, as we posted yesterday, iOS 6.1 is probably just around the corner. That doesn’t mean that a jailbreak for said software will also be available, but evidenced by what we’ve seen so far, a jailbreak will in all likelihood be coming eventually. Before iOS 7 at the very least.
