According to a recent interview with Pod2g and the Chronic Dev team, February is the estimated release date for the IOS 6 and iPhone 5 jailbreak. Also, this jailbreak will work for iPad Mini, iPad 4, and all other iDevices. This is big news for owners of new apple device like the iPhone 5 who never had a chance to jailbreak until now.
Hackulo.us, the largest cracked apps resource for jailbroken iDevices has been down for over 2 months now and show no signs of coming back. Yet other cracked apps sources such as Apptrackr require you to connect your device to a computer to sync.
