Jailbreak for the iPhone 5 Achieved on the Very First Day of its Launch


An iOS developer took few minutes to jailbreak an iPhone 5.

Popular Cydia apps developer Paul Grant, who is very well known as Chpwn, has successfully jailbroken iPhone 5 on the very first day of its release. Just few hours ago Chpwn received his iPhone 5 and he has just shown the screenshot of his iPhone having Cydia installed on it.


When one of another popular hacker known as i0nic asked him whether he complied Cydia on iPhone 5, Chpwn replied that he had jailbroken it.

This very first step is. no doubt, a huge step but still a lot of work is to be done. So far it is unclear what type of exploit he used to jailbreak the iPhone 5 and installed Cydia on it. Moreover, he didn’t told us whether it was tethered or untethered jailbreak on iPhone 5 just like iPhone 4 and older devices.

Update 1: We have no recent updates yet when the iPhone, chronic or any dream jailbreak team will release the next software to jailbreak this latest communication lion.
