We have already seen enough proofs of iOS 6.0/6.0.1 jailbreak posted by hacker community but the vulnerabilities and methods used by them did not allowed to distributive it publicly. However, iOS kernel exploit hacker of French origin pod2g and planetbeing discovered few more vulnerabilities within iOS 6.x and confirmed that a huge progress has been made in iOS 6.0 jailbreak scene. The confirmation came via his twitter account.
Now that pod2g has almost confirmed it, expect him to release the hack as soon as it is ready. Expect Absinthe-like tool be released for jailbreaking iPad 4, iPad 3, iPad 2, iPad, iPad Mini, iPhone 5, iPhone 4S/4/3GS including iPod touch and Apple TV. Details are thin whether the newly discovered exploits will assist firecore team to jailbreak Apple TV3 on latest mobile operating system.
Tons of progress the last few days. I think the future is looking bright for jailbreaking.

WARNING: Be sure you hold off on upgrading to any upcoming iOS update until pod2g or planetbeing divulge more details on his upcoming jailbreak. Apple could release iOS 6.1 software update within a week or two.
There’s no official word on when the untethered 6.1 jailbreak might be available, but signs are pointing that it might be packaged and pushed to jailbreak community within a week or two or after iOS 6.1 is released to public.
Most of you will ask for an ‘exact ETA’. To clarify, there is no exact date been shared by pod2g. Continue to be patient, supportive, and be extremely excited that it is on the way! Perhaps, the best way to know about it is to follow Jailbreaks on Twitter or Facebook. If you have any other issue related to jailbreaking jump to jailbreak forum to seek help. Till then Enjoy!
[UPDATE:] Looks like pod2g and company is waiting just for iOS 6.1 release. Expect jailbreak to be released as soon as iOS 6.1 is out for download. What is your opinion? Will you jailbreak your device?
