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.the iOS6 JB is out already for the 4 and lower. Nothing for the 4S or 5 yet.
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.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.
Jailbreaking is far from dead.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 :-(
