iOS 6.1.3 Untethered Jailbreak Status

iOS 6.1.3 Untethered Jailbreak Status – Apple released iOS 6.1.3 to the public. Prior to the release of this firmware, it was said that Apple fixed few bugs and also patched exploits used by Evasi0n to jailbreak all iOS capable devices running iOS 6.0 -6.1.2. Hackers have warned those that wants an untethered jailbreak to refrain from updating to the latest firmware (iOS 6.1.3).

Some heeded to this warning and some didn’t. Consequently, those that upgraded to this latest firmware are still waiting for an untethered jailbreak for their devices.

Sadly, there won’t be an untethered jailbreak for iOS 6.1.3 for all iDevices. According to tweets by one of the notable hackers @pod2j, ”

we (Evad3rs) are not working on a iOS 6.1.3 jailbreak that would be too much effort for a minimal update. We’re waiting for a major release.

Truly speaking, it will be useless to expend so much energy on a minor update like iOS 6.1.3 just to please a minor few that updated to it.

Although, its not all bad news as some devices can be tethered jailbroken like iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 and iPod touch 4G on iOS 6.1.3 with the help of Redsn0w 0.9.15b3 and snowbreeze 2.9.14.

Furthermore, even if you downgraded from iOS 6.1.3 to  6.1.2, you will be able to convert tethered to untethered.

Therefore, if you want an untethered jailbreak on your device, you should stay away from updating to iOS 6.1.3.

According to these hackers, work is more focused on jailbreaking a newer major firmware that would be released (iOS 6.2 or 7.0) in order to release its untethered jailbreak in record time. This can  be seen in one of the tweets of Joshua Hill below

iOS 6.1.3 Untethered Jailbreak Status

According to Joshua Hill tweet, he is making substantial progress on perhaps untethered jailbreak of this major firmware release. This isn’t surprising because he started working on it long ago. The effort to bring untethered jailbreak to iOS 7 is really going strong and we can expect an untethered jailbreak as soon as this iOS 7 is released.

For those that would be getting new iDevices shipped with iOS 6.0, use evasi0n to jailbreak your device. Do not try updating to 6.1.3 for now if you want untethered jailbreak.

In Summary,

  • There is no untethered jailbreak for iOS 6.1.3 only on old bootrom 3GS.
  • Tethered jailbreak only support iPhone 3GS (new bootrom), iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 4G.
  • iPhone 4S and 5 users cannot downgrade there firmware from iOS 6.1.3 to iOS 6.1.2. Only A4 devices can.

Finally, our esteemed hackers who just finished the Hack In The Box (HITB) conference are working intensely on an untethered jailbreak for iOS 7. That should put smiles on our faces again when iOS 7 is released.

Stay tuned for latest news as they come. We plan to keep you informed.

    I really wish those who write your news articles do research ahead of time, iOS 6.1.3 did infact patch 6 exploits, however only 4 were in credit to the Evasi0n jailbreak, 1 was a known lockscreen bug and the last one i honestly forgot but im sure looking it up wouldnt be hard to do. The truth and point is that it is obvious that 6.1.3 broke the Jailbreak which we knew at least a month ahead when the very first 6.1.3 beta was released. Now if you want to report news, it is also true that Evad3rs said they were gonna wait for another major release (6.2 or 7.0), and T-Mobile versions of the iPhone 5 are being shipped with iOS 6.0, so those looking to jailbreak a new iPhone 5 can still do so providing they do not upgrade it. Thank you for the old news and theres something a little more recent for you to report!

    Mo you are right I think they just wanted to make a new post in order to get some seo favour regarding recent jailbreak news…:)

  3. meha says:

    I don’t think the topic had any problem.
    What’s wrong in educating people that are not too conversant with Apple firmware? Like you pointed out, some will be getting new devices soon, I’d there is no information as this they would have blindly updated only to find out that they can jailbreak.

    Seriously, I don’t understand the issue you have with the post. Is it that its obselete or is the information wrong?

  4. FYI says:

    Big deal Mo, old news new news. It’s not like this is a subscription in which I pay for it then they give me old news. And that is way away from the point, point being evad3rs officially announced no more 6.1.3 untethered jb, iOS 7 next. Because there are still kids who are asking and waiting for 6.1.3 untethered, whatever their reason for being on 6.1.3.

    Like meha said, well I’ll just straighten it out, you are not the only person reading posts. So instead of pointing out facts for your sake, when the news is not interesting for you, leave opinions to yourself for the sake of others who might view it informative.

    Oh and meha, there is really nothing wrong with the post. It is not obsolete nor it is wrong. In my opinion, they’re just informing us OFFICIALLY that untethered jb on iOS 6 is over and that we’ll see evad3rs in action again on iOS 7. :) Mo just views it in a negative way.

    Sorry for the late response.

    Just download iOS 6.1.3 IPSW and use Sn0wbreeze 2.9.14 to cook a custom firmware and then put your device in Pwnd dfu mode. Restore using iTunes.

    Once done, your iPhone 3GS would be jailbroken and hacktivated.

    Hope this answer your question

  21. Lost&confused says:

    I recently purchased the ipad mini 6.1.3 (10b329) 16gb wifi.
    Am i to believe from the countless hours and frustration experienced in my JB search, that there is NO way to JB this device as it currently sit in version?
    I’m completely new to apple products and have difficulty at the moment understanding this JB thing completely. Not to say i have not tried many many sites and read many tutorials.
    It all leads me back to a major headache and a 6.1.3 mini unjailbroken.
    If anyone understands what I need to do, please answer to this message.
    I thank you very much.

  22. Jon says:

    You *cannot* jailbreak your iPad Mini with 6.1.3. There is no jailbreak from any source for this and won’t be. You will have to wait until there is a jailbreak for iOS 7.x. Read the article carefully. It explains this. Sorry.

  23. Lost&confused says:

    Ok, thank you. So many conflicting websites. One says they have the JB other says its not out, this one says wont ever be out.
    Needed some honest clarification on the subject, and appreciate your response.
