iOS 6, 6.0.1 and 6.1 beta 2 Jailbreak Status for iDevices
Is there hope for untethered jailbreak for iOS6, 6.0.1, 6.1 beta 2 on even new devices? Maybe, considering the recent tweet by popular hacker: @p0sixninja as depicted in the twitter images below.
With the recent release of iOS 6.1 beta 2 to developers, hackers will have to slow down the pace a little bit so that a more stable jailbreak tool can be released for all devices.
It could be recalled that the same thing happened for iOS 5.0 Hackers had to wait till 5.1.1 for a universal untethered jailbreak tool to be released. Maybe the same will happen in the case of iOS6.1 or 6.1.1.
If, Joshua Hill's research yield fruit and he was able to crack what he's talking about in his tweet below, saying that "...only at least 2 exploits needed to be found in t he bootrom for it to be untethered for life" we may not need to worry anymore as to jailbreaking any iOS version and idevice. Lets keep our fingers crossed for the awesome hackers out there to do their thing.
Many people hold the opinion that a jailbroken iDevice is more powerful than an iDevice that is not jailbroken. The same goes for a rooted android device. For this reason, idevice users usually seek to jailbreak their devices while some others rely on both a jailbreak & unlock to use their devices.
Needless to say, many need to know the status of jailbreak available for iDevices so as not to get stuck. For this reason, i have listed the jailbreak status for the different Apple devices below.JAILBREAK STATUS FOR IOS6 AND 6.0.1iPhone 3GS old bootrom

Is there any hope of an untethered jailbreak in the near future? Well we don't know yet. However @p0sixninja tweeted that he is working on something big as seen in the tweeter image below.
With this tweet, one can say that anything could happen in the near future that will bring smiles to the face of apple fans. Till then, you can refrain from updating to iOS 6 so as the keep the full power you have over your device on iOS 5.1.1.
