Grant Paul, known on twitter as @Chpwn, has posted a picture on twitter of his shiny new iPhone 5 running Cydia! That’s right – less than a day after the iPhone 5 officially went on sale, it was already jailbroken. Now, this is a very early jailbreak and probably won’t be available to the public for a little while, but this is definitely a promising step in the right direction.
Taller screens like Cydia too. :) twitter.com/chpwn/status/2…

My biggest gripe with jailbreaking is that it slows down my device. But with the insanely fast A6 processor, perhaps the iPhone 5 won’t be plagued by the same lag that pervious jailbroken iPhones were. What do you guys think? Will you jailbreak your iPhone 5 when this hack goes public, or are you content with Apple’s version of iOS? Let me know in the comments section below or on twitter @TiP_Jake.
