    Welcome to the iPadForums Official IOS6 Jailbreak Status Thread!

    §- This post is regularly kept up to date. Factual news on the status of the IOS6 jailbreak will always be reflected in the first post as soon as we are aware of it! =§

    IOS 6.1.3 was released on 19th March 2013 and CANNOT currently be jailbroken.

    The processor families used in all of the iPad models capable of running IOS6 do not have a known bootrom exploit, therefore the development of an untethered jailbreak for IOS6 these devices is a complex process requiring multiple userland exploits. Since there is no bootrom exploit, a tethered jailbreak will not be available for these devices as things stand. It is understood however that jailbreak developers are investigating decryption of the bootroms on all these devices ;)

    The first public jailbreak for IOS6 (evasi0n) has taken 4 months and 2 weeks since the firmware was released by Apple. For reference, it took a period of 11 weeks following release of the iPad3 for it to be jailbroken on 5.1.1, and it took a period of just under 4 months following release of the iPad2 for it to be jailbroken on 4.3.3! Despite this being the longest wait for a jailbreak yet, it is still only slightly longer that the wait for the first iPad2 jailbreak ;)

    Will we also have a compatibility list for jailbreak tweaks and such for iOS6?

    I agree.. I'm not touching iOS6 for my iPad until there's a jailbreak..

    there's been some progress on the A4 powered iPhones and iPods, so I hope that's a good sign..

    I hope mentioning this isn't breaking any rules..

    Tethered Jailbreak is already available, But I am going to wait for the untethered, As nothing in ios 6 seems a must have!

    (I missed the part only for ipad 1....Sorry) Hope they get it done soon!

    (My Error, sorry,when I linked to external site I didnt realise I was breaking rules, (who honestly reads rules), so appologies Again) Just hope a jailrbreak happens in following month!

    Yes, this is only for devices running the A4 chip.

    I think the site made an error when they listed the iPad 1 as a supported device.

    The site exists to generate traffic and ad revenue, and they consistently post incorrect and lazy information in order to do this. It is one of the reasons we do not allow links to external blogs!

    @nickb67 - Did you even read my first post? It clearly lays out the facts and explain why a tethered jailbreak will NOT be available. Please remember our rules. External links should not be posted to other iPad blogs etc. If you believe I or any other member has made a mistake (and none of us are above making mistakes) then you should politely challenge it, rather than posting contradictory information from an unreliable source. Thanks for your understanding.

    That said, the first post is being updated with factual information as we speak... ;)
