The race to jailbreak the iPhone 5 continues as the world's best hackers appear to be hard at work trying to crack the new iPhone's hardware and software for the thousands (if not millions) of iPhone 5 owners not satisfied with the parameters set by Apple.

Recent expert analysis suggests that an iPhone 5 untethered jailbreak could be months or even a year away, while others point out that Apple has redesigned the iPhone to make jailbreaking illegal, forcing hackers to rethink the way they jailbreak.

However, one iPhone hacked gives us hope. @planetbeing was one of several acclaimed jailbreakers to attend Hack in the Box 2012 earlier this month, and ever since his return from the computer security conference he's been leaving a trail of tweets that just might lead us the an iOS 6 untethered jailbreak for the iPhone 5 and its indomitable A6 processor.

Here's are seven tweets from @planetbeing that make us think he could announce an iPhone 5 jailbreak any day now.

While no definitive iPhone 5 jailbreak came out of the Hack in the Box, it appears that behind closed doors the world's best jailbreakers may have brainstormed up a few new ideas that could be the key to cracking iOS 6. If just one of these three iOS 6 exploits works we could be getting an iPhone 5 jailbreak very soon

This is good news for all jailbreak enthusiasts. An untethered iPhone 5 jailbreak would be more stable and easier to use, and it sounds like @planetbeing clearly prefers to spend his time working on an untethered iOS 6 jailbreak.

Here we see that @planetbeing is pretty much finished designing a tethered jailbreak. We're almost there!

It's important to be patient, notes @planetbeing. The idea of a working untethered iPhone 5 jailbreaking is certainly exciting, but rushing the job would only result in an unsuccessful jailbreak for the iOS 6.

Let's not get bogged down in the nitty gritty. As @orbyorb notes, it's just nice to see our hacker friend hard at work on something so important.

Brian Sweet asks why we still don't have a tethered iPhone 5 jailbreak, since @planetbeing has already designed one and moved on to the untethered iOS 6 jailbreak. It sounds like the hacker really only sees the tethered iPhone 5 jailbreak as a stepping stone to an untethered version

Clearly @planetbeing is making leaps and bounds in progress, and we can't wait to see the results! But please dude, don't burn yourself out. After all, millions of iPhone 5 owners are counting on you.
