Less than 24 hours after the iPhone 5 launch, the hacker Grant Paul also known as Chpwn managed to jailbreak his Apple handset, announced via his twitter account. We can now say with certainty that there is an iOS 6 jailbreak that might be released sooner than expected. Whether it is a tethered or untethered jailbreak remains unknown. It might take months before the jailbreak is available to the public, but it is good to see that it is already underway. You can see the tweet from Grant Paul along with a screenshot found below.

While the DevTeam always acted transparently and from the outset, it was clear that the jailbreak will be published and made accessible to all users, is not known whether @chpwn actually declared its willingness to provide a download. Pod2g and his colleagues in the case of iOS 5.1 jailbreak but asked for a donation, the donation was voluntary.
The quick hack can meanwhile suggests that iOS 6, some “gaps” which allows jailbreak all interested users
But it must be pointed out that the law is controversial: While this is loading, a jailbreak not “illegal”, but Apple insists that the warranty on the device will be voided as soon as a device is jailbroken.
iOS 6, the latest version of Apple’s operating system was discussed well so far. But Apple Maps provide “trouble”: Google Maps has been banished (but can be downloaded as an app). But apparently Apple Maps shows some places and not airports and other facilities. This must probably still be improved.
And from Aplle’s perspective, this might also be conceivable vulnerabilities in iOS 6, outlining the rumored jailbreak. The IT giant from Cupertino is not currently plague, but the iPhone 5 is already a big hit with two million of pre-orders in 24 hours speak for itself.
