iOS 6.0.2 Untethered Jailbreak Now Available On iPhone 5

Popular hacker Planetbeing have brought hope to many with his statement today via reditt saying that he has an untethered iOS 6.0.2 jailbreak running on his iPhone 5.
He however insisted that it cannot be released now because of the release of iOS 6.1 that the boys at Apple will drop anytime soon.
This statement brings hope to many as some people have though that tethered jailbreak of new devices isn't possible let alone an untethered jailbreak.
However Planetbeing has this to say:

Untethered Jailbreak iOS 6.0.2 on iPhone 5
"Yeah, I’m not really sure what all the doom and gloom is about. The fact is, I have an untethered iOS 6.0.2 JB running on my iPhone 5 right now. The reasons it’s not released are because 1. releasing it would burn an exploit we want to save for ourselves so we can always get in to look at new firmware and help JB in the future, 2. iOS 6.1 is coming very soon and will likely break a small part of it anyway, there’s no point in sacrificing the many bugs it won’t break.

Anyway, where there are 4+ bugs (that it took to get this to work), there’s gotta be one or two more so while jailbreaking is getting harder, reports of its death are highly exaggerated.

This is not stuff I want to say over Twitter with 140 characters because I’m afraid of starting some sort of riot, but I like the smaller /r/jailbreak community more. "

That is it folks, if you thought that JB is over for new devices then think again cos these guys are not gonna let Apple win the fight that easily.
Stay tuned for more info on untethered JB has they come.
