    Let the waiting begin... :( Anyone want to take a stab at how long it'll be?

    Thanksgiving sounds like a good round guess. How long was it for the 4S again?

    It took 6 weeks for the iPhone 4 jailbreak and 16 weeks for the 4S jailbreak, so I agree with iPhonewarrior and I'm not going to hold my breath.

    the iOS6 JB is out already for the 4 and lower. Nothing for the 4S or 5 yet. :(

    It's new hardware so availability of an iOS 6 jailbreak isn't really an indication that it will be available for the iPhone 5 anytime soon. Making the untether for the new hardware is the hardest part.

    I'm gonna miss Bite, toggles and NC enhancements the most.

    Blech...no more Bite SMS. :( I still don't understand why Apple can't incorporate something as simple and functional as that into their iOS. It makes no sense to keep doing it the old way.

    Also, since I'm on an unlimited AT&T plan, no FaceTime for me until the JB is released. It's gonna suck when I work nights and I can't say good night to my 3-yr old via FT.

    Agreed! Though I'm not upgrading to the 5, this is one of the top three reasons I'm not updating my 4S to iOS6. They already gleaned enough from the jb community, why not just give this up already? Bite integrates so well that I almost forget it's not a stock feature.

    Have you tried Tango, in the App Store? Works great on 3G.

    Yes It is, but I believe it's tethered.

    I fear if I install FakeClockUp on this thing, it may tear through the fabric of space and time.

    Thread moved to iPhone Jailbreak.

    I wouldn't expect it for several more weeks, in my opinion. The jailbreak has to be completed for the new iPhone hardware, with a possible delay for an incremental firmware update such as iOS 6.0.1. Then the jailbreak has to be packaged into user-friendly software for end users and beta tested. This all takes time.

    No, they haven't given us an ETA and there is no sign that they are getting close to a public release yet. There is still lots of work and testing to be done.

    Jailbreaking is dead. Now a days it takes longer to jailbreak a device than the device lifespan itself. For example, by the time a jailbreak for the iPhone 5 comes out, we will all be looking at getting the iPhone 5S (or whatever the designation). I jailbroke my 4S but only enjoyed it for a few short months until the next phone came out. If you are like me (buying the latest all the time), then maybe it's time to give up on jailbreaking all together. It's a shame because I enjoy my idevices way more when jailbroken :-(

    Jailbreaking is far from dead.
