Scammers Release Fake Solutions to jailbreak iOS 6.0.1 for IPhone 5/4S/4

If you want to jailbreak iphone 5 or 4 or 4S you should know this still isn’t possible for all the three devices. The iPhone Dev-Team solution to jailbreak iOS 6.0.1 works only for iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 and iPod Touch. Whereas iPhone 5 and iPhone 4S are waiting for a flawless solution to jailbreak their devices, scammers are dipping their toes in a market with huge data theft potential.

Several weeks after Apple released iOS 6, hackers still haven’t figured out how to break the system on the newest iPhones. Since jailbreaking iPhones isn’t illegal, Apple has most likely put a lot of work in making its system more difficult to crack. It hasn’t exactly managed to do just that, but the new devices make it harder for hackers to find exploits in the system.

If you’re looking for software to jailbreak iOS 6.0.1 on iPhone 5 or 4S, there still isn’t a solution for that. Several smartphone websites have warned against fake jailbreaking solutions for weeks now as the real hacks haven’t been found. Don’t think there’s no reason to be on the lookout for apps that try to steal data or compromise your system while impersonating a jailbreaking software for iPhone.

The longer we have to wait to jailbreak iOS 6.0.1 on iPhone 5 and 4S the more scammers fill up the internet with fake solutions. The latest iO6 jailbreaking fraud targets the untethered version (that developed by iPhone Dev-Team, Redsn0w). Scammers have populated the internet with websites that label themselves as homepages of Pod2g and greenpois0n/absinthe, the team member and download page for Chronic Development.

The fake sites copy most of the design and information of the iPhone Dev Team and the greenpois0n homepages. Websites in this type of scams are so similar to the original ones that it becomes hard for a layperson to figure out which is which. Idigitaltimes writes that several readers have complained they lost money to the scam.

The fake jailbreak iOS 6.0.1 solution requires users to click on the download link and complete a survey or an offer, then pay for an untethered jailbreak that doesn’t work.

  1. This is very low. I’m sure if they think enough they can create a real jailbreak for the iPhone 5 and make a lot of money instead of trying to scam people.
