iOS 6.1.3 UnTethered Jailbreak Update, iOS 7 And The Future of Jailbreaking

Untethered iOS 6.1.3 Jailbreak Update, iOS 7 and the Future of Jailbreaking – Today, as part of our effort at Evasi0n Jailbreak to keep our readers constantly informed, we’ve put together this basic guide to outline the status of the next UnTethered Jailbreak. As a number of our avid site users are already aware, Apple effectively patched the iOS 6.0 through 6.1.2 Untethered evasion jailbreak with the release of iOS 6.1.3 on March 19th. In this article, we’ll not only explore the reasons why the evad3rs have opted against developing a utility to jailbreak 6.1.3, but we’ll also examine iOS 7 and jailbreaking’s place in the future.

iOS Jailbreak 6.1.3 Update, 7.0 And The Future of Jailbreaking

iOS 7 and 6.1.3 Jailbreak News

After questions related to whether iOS 6.1.3 can be jailbroken, which it in fact can using a Redsn0w workaround for the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and the iPod touch 4G, the second set of most asked inquires pertain to the status of the iOS 6.1.3 Untethered jailbreak. Unfortunately, the short-term outlook for the next major jailbreak utility is rather bleak.

While both the evad3rs (the genius group of hackers behind the evasi0n jailbreak utility) and p0sixninja (quondam leader of the Chronic Dev Team) have confirmed the development of two separate utilities, both are waiting for the release of iOS 7 and new iDevices before pushing out refreshed utilities capable of jailbreaking all iPhone, iPad and iPod touch models.

Although some question the evad3rs and p0sixninja’s motives for delaying the release of the next jailbreak, we can assure you that they have the public’s best interest in mind. The developers of jailbreak tools often spend months discovering, testing and verifying the half-a-dozen or more primary exploits that are required to create said jailbreak tools. From a hypothetical standpoint, if the developers decided to release a jailbreak for iOS 6.1.3, the time they spent discovering the precious and rare exploits would be wasted, as Apple would surely patch the exploits with a minor firmware release (most likely 6.1.4).

However, if the hackers wait to release a jailbreak, new devices and firmwares – like iOS 7 – will be able to be jailbroken using the same exploits that would otherwise be patched if the hackers had rushed to release a jailbreak for 6.1.3. In a rather interesting, yet basic, question, one of our readers asked the following: “How can they [the developers and hackers] ensure that Apple won’t patch the exploits they’ve delivered before they release a jailbreak?” – we have a simple answer to that. If Apple doesn’t know which iOS vulnerabilities the hackers plan on exploiting, they can’t patch them; it’s similar to the common saying “it’s like trying to find a needle in a hay stack”.

Looking forward, we know for a fact that jailbreaking will endure, survive and even thrive as iOS continues to grow. It’s not a question of whether or not the Evasi0n iOS 6 untethered jailbreak is the last of its kind, but rather when the latest advancements in the world of jailbreaking will be made available to the general public.

If all of your jailbreak-related questions haven’t been fully answered in this article, we recommend reading our iOS 6.1.3 and Jailbreak iOS 7 Guide for information on downgrading, semi Untethered or semi Tethered, UnTethered and Tethered jailbreak utilities.

    this uja1l is stupid website with full of surverys bastereds guys please dont download nothing .. i paid lot of money to this unjail fuckers

  5. Khaxper says:

    Yes, I understand all those reasons, posted one and once again, in so many places over the internet… We’ll wait till iOS7 to release our JB tool… fine! But, if there’s is a posibility, even if it’s one in a billion, it could happen than iOS7 is being released with all those secret exploits, already patched… ok, but that’s almost impossible… well, then they’ll just release iOS 7.1 or 7.0.1 and patch them… so we will be again like right now, waiting for the iOS8… All I can see, is that the War Apple vs Hackers is being winned by Cupertino… those times when every iOS update was almost inmediatly “PWNED” are gone… and doesn´t appear to come back

    • Simon says:

      Key rule to these things: If you have to pay for it or need to complete a survey; DO NOT USE IT.

      • Jg says:

        It ask for survey … Bt all comments at YouTube said it worked !!!??? So I don’t know if it fake or …….

  11. Carl says:

    Just wondering if it is a good idea for me to update my ipad 2 to 6.1.3 as i dont know whether it is possible to jailbreak it afterwards?

  12. Jordany says:

    I wanna thanks the evaders teen for hard working. 6 month after i bought my iph 5 i was able to jailbrake. My phone was replace by apple and gave me 1 with 6.1.3 I feel frustrated, with no jailbrake iphone dont make anysense Not because of FREE APPS, but for the tweaks, and the freedom of mind of thinking that anything u want in your phone can be done by jailbraking. Is there any way to downgrade let me know thanks

  13. Juan says:

    Two things on why I think this time having an untethered for 6.1.3 would be a good idea (and waiting for iOs7 a bad one): First, the fact that Cydia 6.1.2 shsh blobs have been screwed and, as Apple doesn’t sign it anymore, the majority of users that needed a restore had no choice rather than upgrade to 6.1.3. Again, this time is quite different from others when you could downgrade or restore. Even there are cases like mine, that saved 6.1.2 blobs with TinyUmbrella but -for some reason I don’t know- the blobs were still unusable (tried using them to stich a signed IPSW with iFaith on a PC with no luck). Second: What if iOs 7 is a major rework of the iOs (like some say)? Wouldn’t the vulnerabilities found in previous iOs be useless as the architecture is completely different? (I don’t know a thing about it, really: just asking from common sense). Regards.

  14. Justin says:

    You guys are pretty senseless in not releasing the jailbreak because it is obvious that the length of 6.1.3 is longer than ios 6.1 and others i honestly see no point I creating a jail break other than there arent any exploits…

  15. Tatsuo says:

    Thank you guys for all your effort on jailbreaking iOS 6.0-6.1.2.. I know it was a lot of work for you guys.. I know that you guys won’t sacrifice exploits for an iOS 6.1.3 Jailbreak tool.. But I was wondering… can u guys make a tool for downgrading from iOS 6.1.3 to older firmwares so that we can still use the iOS 6.0 Jailbreaking tool?

  16. Paul says:

    I’m bummed too. But if you don’t like it figure it out yourself. This is a free service and if they want to wait it’s their right. The explination given makes perfect sense,

  17. Mikki says:

    Iphone 4s 6.1.3 can be jailbreak ?

  18. JAMES says:

    On internet many people talk about a future major release : IOS 6.2 . Will hackers release a jailbreak for this version of IOS??

    • Evasion Admin says:

      We’re quickly approaching WWDC 2013 (where Apple will unveil iOS 7). If Apple does release 6.2, the developers will still wait for iOS 7 before releasing the next major jailbreak utility.

  19. Serge Lemire says:

    Try to write a fictive IMEI and the system will ALWAYS tell: Congratulations…and try to contact them. You click anywhere in the website and it does not go anywhere. SCAM SCAM SCAM

    • Serge Lemire says:

      OUps I don’t see the Ads anymore. I am not talking about this site here but an ads certifiing that it can unlock any iphone.

  20. howisthat says:

    Why do you guys send me daily emails telling me “We are unable to jailbreak 6.1.3 on most devices” nobody gives a shit… I have blocked you and will google search when the next IOS comes out… no need to tell me daily you can’t do it.

  21. Hoox says:

    OMG. You must get so bored having to write the same thing over and over again. It is what it is. And its that way so that iOS7 will be breakable. Just accept it. Suck it up, dry your eyes and move on. So what if your favorite tweak or two is missing for a few months. The device is still great without the jailbreak. Jailbreak just makes it that much nicer. Quit your bitching and hang tight for the guys who work thanklessly through many incredible painful hours to get this right for the masses who can only complain when they don’t do it fast enough or don’t agree with common sense judgement with the decisions that are made. JBers (evasi0n and co) Good job! Keep up the good work.

  22. Ever says:

    Hi all I had a I4s under 6.1.2 that i had jailbroken and put back unwillingly under 6.1 3 Then I managed to “destroy” my Idevice and get another new one in a apple store, device which is under 6.1.2. Oh Lord … Thank you

    • 3dChris says:

      Yes, the “Lord” is the reason why you received an iphone with an iOS version 6.1.2. I’m sure “God” cringed at the idea of you not being able to install your favorite theme, and no doubt he is pleased with your acknowledgement of his intervention. (FYI – This post is saturated in sarcasm, in case it wasn’t obvious)

  23. Tyré says:

    A concern is that by releasing a jailbreak apple could release a patch by figuring out the iOS vulnerabilities you used, well couldn’t they hypothetically be figuring that out by themselves anyways right now and by the time iOS 7 is released have it patched anyways? So why waste time now not doing anything if you could have a jailbreak out, in the end it’s an endless cycle of updating and patching regardless by both teams so why not continue the loop.

    • Evasion Admin says:

      Sorry, but that’s HIGHLY IMPROBABLE. The odds of that happening are less than one in a billion, as they could theoretically exploit something that otherwise appear un-exploitable.

  24. Steve says:

    I understand your concerns, but I just recently got my iPhone 5 with 6.1.3. I was really looking forward to jailbreaking and extending its usability, like I have with all of the other iPhones I’ve had (I’m a jailbreaking veteran from iPhone 1). I find it very hard to accept that I have to wait possibility months now in order to jailbreak my phone? Good grief.

    • 3dChris says:

      If the grief is so good, then why are you crying? I doubt they are going to change their mind and release the jb for 6.1.3. Oh wait, what’s this? Hey guys! Some guy named Steve is having a hard time accepting the fact that he may have to wait a couple months before he can make his icons pink. Shit, that changes everything! Um, no it doesn’t. Fail.

      • george says:

        Dude, what the hell is wrong with you. “Good grief” is a phrase people use, not to be taken literally -__- And obviously when someone is exposed to the freedom of jailbreaking your device, of course it is hard when you have a boring iDevice that is limited to basic features. And he never even said that they had to jailbreak just for him, he is just bummed that he is unable to jailbreak his device. Stop being such a dick like seriously

  25. Raphael says:

    I wanted to buy an iPad just to unlock it but I can not wait for ios 7, so I’ll try an ‘alternative device. I hate to say it.

  26. Brett says:

    You should just release the jailbreak after 6.1.4. People already know not to upgrade waiting at 6.1.3 anyways if they want to jb
