Although Posixninja tweeted yesterday that the status of "iPhone5 jailbreak is grim", it seems that we will soon see an untethered jailbreak for iOS 6.0.1.
Posixninja tweeted earlier today that he has found the "BootROM" and decryption keys for A5/A5X/A6/A6X "and " it's at least a starting point for finding a new bootrom exploit, and makes userland jailbreaks 1000% easier". So far He's been working mostly on his own and progressing successfully . He later tweeted all that's left for the process to complete is to find a few more addresses .
This untethered jailbreak will likely work on all devices including the new iPhone 5 and iPad.
