Well that didn’t take long. It not even a week yet and the iPhone 5 has been jailbroken. chpw whose real name is Grant Paul posted pictures on his Twitter showing off his work. To be fair chpw is a master jailbreak developer. So we have no word when and if this jailbreak will be out in the wild for us to use. So once again in less then 24 hours another iPhone goes down. In the ring of cat and mouse, hacker vs. Apple it seems that the jailbreak developers always get the last laugh. Well, until Apple updates the iOS again.
One thing that has come out of this which is great news for us waiting for the jailbreak is that rumor has it that the jailbreak used an old exploit flaws in iOS 6 itself. That means it should not be long for the jailbreak to head our way. Fingers crossed it’s sooner than later.
