iPhone 5 Has Been Jailbroken – less than 24 hours


it has been less than 24 hours since Apple’s new iPhone 5 went on sale and iOS jailbreak developer Grant Paul a.k.a chpwn has posted a screenshot of iPhone 5’s taller Home screen with Cydia installed on it.

Few minutes back he tweeted:

Taller screens like Cydia too.🙂 Twitter / chpwn: Taller screens like Cydia too. …

He later confirmed that it is indeed jailbroken.

This is good news for jailbreakers as it also implies that iOS 6 can be jailbroken on the newer iOS devices. Currently it is possible to only jailbreak iPhone 3GS and A4-based iOS devices such as iPhone 4 and iPad 2.

It is not clear if the issues with Cydia and fundamental modules like PreferenceLoader have been fixed.

It is impressive that Grant has managed to jailbreak iPhone 5 on the day of its launch, we must admit that based on the status of the iOS 6 jailbreak, we were least expecting it.

Grant has developed popular jailbreak tweaks such as Zephyr.
