Jailbreak 6.1.3 Semi UnTethered iOS on iPhone 4, 3GS, iPod Touch 4G

Jailbreak 6.1.3 iOS Semi UnTethered on iPhone 4, 3GS, iPod touch 4G with Redsn0w – Following Apple’s release of iOS 6.1.3 today, a popular jailbreak tutorial YouTuber named iCrackUriDevice published an updated semi UnTethered jailbreak guide for the new firmware using a simple RedSn0w workaround. Unfortunately, because the Untethered exploits employed by Evasion are patched in iOS 6.1.3, this jailbreak remains exclusive to A4-powered devices and is Tethered by default, which we’ll explain later. If you own a newer iDevice on a previous version of iOS 6, including 6.0.1, 6.0.2, 6.1, 6.1.1 and 6.1.2, we strongly advise following our evasi0n jailbreak tutorial, as it includes untethered support for all devices.


Jailbreak 6.1.3 Untethered Evasion

As mentioned above, the Redsn0w Jailbreak is compatible with, and can jailbreak, the following iPhone and iPod touch models running iOS 6.1.3.

  • iPhone 4 (both GSM and CMDA models)
  • iPhone 3GS
  • iPod touch 4th generation

While the following newer iDevices are incompatible with this 6.1.3 jailbreak, they are still able to be jailbroken on all previous versions of iOS 6, even 6.1.2, using evasion.

  • iPhone 5
  • iPhone 4S
  • iPad mini
  • iPod touch 5th generation
  • iPad 4 powered by Apple’s A6X chip and Retina display
  • iPad 3
  • iPad 2

Furthermore, even though it’s possible to use redsn0w on 6.1.3, iPhone and iPod touch owners will only be able to jailbreak using what’s referred to as a “Tethered Jailbreak”. Consequently, devices jailbroken using this method will require Redsnow to boot into their fully jailbroken state every time they power off. However, it is possible to install what’s known as a semi Tethered or a Semi UnTethered jailbreak on iOS 6.1.3 after completing this tutorial. This will allow the iPhone or iPod touch to reboot without the assistance of a computer with limited functionality. If you’ve previously jailbroken using a tethered version of redsn0w, jailbreaking 6.1.3 should be easy for you.

Now that you know the limitations of Redsn0w, to be immediately notified on any and all news pertaining to the status of the UnTethered evasion jailbreak for newer firmwares like 6.1.3, subscribe to our official iOS 6.1.3 UnTethered feed.

Important Jailbreak Prerequisite

Before continuing with this semi Untethered jailbreak tutorial, ensure that you have the following:

  • An older iDevice (remember, only the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and the iPod touch 4G are supported) running the latest iOS 6.1.3 firmware from Apple.
  • The RedSnow 0.9.15b3 jailbreak utility and your device’s corresponding 6.0 firmware file.

Additionally, while mentioned above, it’s worth reiterating that this is a Tethered jailbreak, which requires additional effort on your part and doesn’t support newer iPhone, iPad and iPod touch models. If at all possible, we recommend staying on a lower iOS 6 firmware and jailbreaking with evasion – iOS 6.1.2 is ideal because it’s the latest firmware supported by evasi0n.

How to Jailbreak iOS 6.1.3 Semi UnTethered Using Redsn0w

Step 1: Download Redsn0w from our download section, which is linked below, to ensure that you have an authentic version of the tool.

Step 2: Once Redsnow has been successfully downloaded, if you’re on Windows, right click the utility, set compatibility mode to Windows XP Service Pack 2 and grant the program administrative privileges. Mac users needn’t worry about compatibility, as practically all versions of OS X  can use the utility immediately after downloading it.

Step 3: Run Redsn0w and click Extras, followed by Select IPSW. In the pop-up window, simply point Redsnow at the iOS 6.0 IPSW, not 6.1.3. After the firmware has been successfully identified, click the Back button to return to the main Redsn0w menu.

Step 4: Click the Jailbreak button, ensure that the option to, Install Cydia was checked by default and continue to the next screen. At this point, Redsn0w suggests turning your device off to enter DFU mode, although it’s possible to bypass this stage of the jailbreak entirely by entering DFU mode ahead of time.

Step 5: To enter Device Firmware Update mode, simply connect your iPhone or iPod touch via a standard 30-pin USB cable, press and hold both the home and power buttons for a total of ten seconds. Once ten seconds has passed, release the power button and continue to hold the home button for an additional ten to fifteen seconds.

Step 6: If you’ve entered DFU mode correctly, Redsnow will automatically proceed. Simply wait for the process to complete and for your jailbroken device to reboot, after it has, you’ll need to boot Tethered.

How to Jailbreak 6.1.3 iOS Untethered

As previously mentioned, you’ll be required to boot tethered for Cydia to appear and every time you need to reboot your iPhone or iPod. To boot Tethered, simply open RedSn0w, click Extras, followed by Select IPSW, point the RedSn0w window at the iOS 6.0 IPSW and select the option to Just Boot.

When you arrive at the stage that requires your device to enter DFU mode, follow the procedure outlined in the fifth step of this tutorial.
