We will just have to hope that the jailbreak is for 6.0.1.

    Since IOS 6.1 is imminent too, the same situation will likely apply to 6.0.1. We can only wait and see, and hope for the best! But if you enjoy the features your jailbreak provides, you have the most appropriate configuration at the present time.
    Quick iOS updates from Apple make it harder for jailbreakers, which version do they concentrate on?

    It entirely depends on the nature of the update...

    Since 6.0.1 is a bug fix update, the first thing they will do is look at what it is that Apple patched in each part of the 6.0.1 OS and look at the same files / libraries in 6.0. This may give clues to vulnerabilities which would make jailbreaking IOS 6.0 easier. In that regard they would stay concentrated on 6.0, which is why you should always wait to apply a minor point release unless you absolutely require one of the fixes it supplies!

    The flip side is that changes to the OS may actually introduce new vulnerabilities (although in a minor bug fix release, this is less likely), so again you look at everything that has changed in 6.0.1 but this time test the new 6.0.1 code for vulnerabilities. It is much more likely that a major point release, such as 6.1, will be looked at like this, since it will have new features, new code, and hopefully new vulnerabilities. Since 6.0.1 is mostly fixing bugs, its quite unlikely that there are new vulnerabilities to exploit in it.

    So, I'd imagine at the moment, iOS 6.0.1 is being used to identify potential weaknesses in 6.0 which may not already have been public. But once 6.1 is out, it may complicate things significantly. IMHO of course!

    Though that definition is also getting a bit gray with internet call services.
    Phone manufacturers and air-time sellers seem to have forgotten that - it's the ONE feature that no-one ever advertises. ;-)

    It would be a bit like advertising that your car is also a car, don't you think?

    What you saw was, essentially, a concept jail break. they're just proving that there are vulnerabilities on the new, new iPad. Yes, the iPad4 has been jail broken (so has the Mini) on iOS 6. However, they were jail broken the same way all the other iDevices were on iOS 6 - by using developer tools. This means that a public jail break is still being worked on.

    All this to say - there is no public jail break for iOS 6 yet. But, "they" are still working on it. We just need to keep hoping they'll succeed.

    What you read about was a developer only jailbreak that won't be publicly released as it requires an Apple developer account to make it work. Another version of it has been demonstrated on the iPad 3.

    I ran across a link to a redpoison site that claims to have an untethered jailbreak for all iDevices on 6.0 or 6.01. It sounds too good to be true. Since I see no mention of it here and they force you to complete some kind of "offer" before downloading, I think it is most likely some kind of scam.

    You're correct in thinking its a scam.

    Hang in there. Don't fall for the scammers!
