Proper jailbreak for iOS 6 reportedly coming December 22nd [updated]

The speed at which a jailbreak for a new iOS device is released has slowed down considerably over the last few years. A tethered jailbreak  for certain devices running iOS 6 has been out September, but most people have been holding out for the untethered version – a hack that doesn’t requires the device to be plugged into a computer and re-jailbroken if rebooted. A new jailbreak developer called “Dream JB” claims he will release a proper untethered jailbreak for devices running iOS 6 or 6.0.1 including the iPhone 5, iPad mini and iPad 4 on December 22nd. Dream JB also promises to release a video on Wednesday as proof. According to his website’s FAQ page, the jailbreak will be a one-click process and will differ from previous jailbreak methods in the past by using a prepared “Webkit exploit” and “userland exploit.” After it’s all done, Cydia, the App Store’s alternative for jailbroken smartphones, can be installed on the device. Unfortunately, the jailbreak won’t support Apple TV boxes.

UPDATE: iPhone jailbreak guru MuscleNerd has put Dream Jailbreak on his list of “fake” jailbreaks that “mislead with fake info,” so you may want to wait until getting independent confirmation that the new jailbreak is legitimate before using it.
