That iOS 6.1 jailbreak that was maybe probably definitely supposed to come out today, courtesy of evad3rs? Bad news; it's not coming until tomorrow. Despite the rumored (and hoped) Super Bowl-day launch date, we'll all have to wait just a little longer.

When the jailbreak does eventually come through, it'll support all iPhones, iPads, and iPod Touches running iOS 6.1, the first of its kind to cover devices with Apple's new A6 chip, which includes the iPhone 5. It's definitely coming folks, but for the time being you'll have to sit tight.

People that jailbreak their phones don't do it because it is "cool" we do it because there are very specific functions that we each individually enjoy or want. It's hardly even a widespread mainstream desire. But here you are, you money hungry headline whores. Competing to get the most internet hits. Pretending that you give a damn about what the hordes of the internet want or care about. Fact of the matter is, every high profile headline you make about jailbreaking brings us that much closer to making it harder to accomplish. YOU. YOU. You are responsible for mainstreaming something that isn't supposed to be mainstream. YOU. Are responsible for shining a light on that which wishes to remain in the shadows. So enjoy your readership. Enjoy your ad revenue. Enjoy that you are contributing to the degradation of a culture that you thrive on.
