Pod2g and Planetbeing found two new vulnerabilities for iOS 6 Jailbreak



So here’s something we haven’t heard in a while: good news on the jailbreak front. Pod2g and planetbeing have found two new vulnerabilities for future iOS 6 jailbreak. Unfortunately the initial code execution for a public jailbreak release is still missing.

Made some nice progress today with @pod2g. I think I'll try to reward myself with a nap. :)

pod2g: @planetbeing oh yeah! 2 new vulnerabilities in a day, chance was with us. But we still miss that initial code execution for a public jb :/

It's great that progress is being made. Hopefully, the two find that last piece of the puzzle and are able to release their jailbreak to rest of us.
