This is false in many ways. Firstly, the jailbreak is being developed in the underground, and is just not ready for a public release.

A lot of people have been treating the last few week’s news as signs that jailbreaking is coming to an end. We wanted to clarify that just because install0us went down and no jailbreak has come out in the last few months, doesn’t mean that it is over, hell mobile piracy is far from over too. If you recall from last year it took months to get a working iOS 5 jailbreak, but when we did it lasted for months after months. Pod2G’s trend #wewantanopenios was a statement to get Apple to open it up itself opposed to full on letter or defeat.
Pod2G tweeted “ If the only possible way to
#weWantAnOpenIOS is the jailbreak, it’ll happen. It is not the end!” Any site that reported that jailbreaking was dead either misunderstood or is sensationalizing the story. While jailbreaking may be facing some competition and work we must remember it is far from over.
