Update: Shortly after this article was published “Dream JB” turned out to be a complete fake. The person behind the website literally rick rolled everyone and shut the site down. It was all apparently a “social experiment” from the beginning, and there was never an actual jailbreak for any kind. If a jailbreak release isn’t coming from known and respected hackers, don’t trust it. The source link to the site has been removed from the bottom of this post.

A mysterious hacker has begun teasing the first untethered jailbreak for the latest devices running iOS 6, including the iPhone 5, the iPad mini, and the fourth-generation iPad. The hack will not come from the usual suspects — the iPhone-Dev Team — but rather from an individual calling himself “Dream JB.” He promises it will arrive on December 22, but are we getting our hopes up over nothing?

We’d usually advise jailbreakers to avoid Apple’s iOS updates just after their release, until hackers have confirmed that the latest software can be jailbroken. But one report claims that it’s perfectly safe to update your A4-powered devices to iOS 5.1.1 without losing your Redsn0w jailbreak.

Don't expect to see Cydia on your new iPad anytime soon.

Just hours after its release on March 16, Apple’s new iPad was jailbroken by the iPhone Dev-Team. Their announcement gave us hope that an exploit for A5 and A5X devices running iOS 5.1 would be available within weeks, but it now seems like we’ll be waiting a whole lot longer than that.
