This is good, a new exploit for a brand new device. Hopefully by the time I pick up my iPhone 5 it'll be jailbreakable!

I'm glad they found a loophole. By the time its ready for a public release iOS will be a 6.1.X.
But that first hardware loophole is the hardest, so mad props the Dev Team (if thats who is responsible)

The 4S was jailbroken less than 2 weeks after it was released. However, due to the large amount of work that is needed for a stable, official release, the jailbreak was not available to the public until 16 weeks after it was first jailbroken.

So it's good news that they already have it jailbroken, but it doesn't necessarily mean a public jailbreak will be released anytime soon.

Europa, Im sure your right but it would be nice if someone would could come out with a public jailbreak sooner than later. Im not sure why I upgraded to IOS 6 when I was completely happy with my j/b phone and the way it was set up... stupidity I suppose.

Yeah, that would be great. I have no idea how long it will take. Just saying I'm not celebrating quite yet.
