In a response to one follower, pod2g confirmed that the evad3rs simply aren’t working on a 6.1.3 jailbreak – however don’t fret, his tweet also contains great news.
New iPhone Security Flaw Discovered After Evasi0n Jailbreak Patched By 6.1.3 – Following Apple’s recent release of iOS 6.1.3, which unfortunately patches the UnTethered Evasion Jailbreak, an entirely new security flaw was discovered yesterday. As many of you may already know, we reported on Tuesday that Apple issued iOS 6.1.3 to address a passcode lockscreen security flaw, patch the untethered jailbreak and bring improvements to the Maps app for Japanese users.
iOS 6.1.3 Released, Jailbreak Details – Following the release of iOS 6.1.2 exactly one month ago, today Apple has released iOS 6.1.3 to the public for the following iDevices: the iPhone 5, 4S, 4, 3GS, iPad 4, 3, 2, iPad mini and, last but not least, Apple’s 5th and 4th generation iPod touch models. The new 6.1.3 firmware was issued to bring minor improvements and bug fixes to iOS, including a cure for the lockscreen passcode security bug and additions to the Maps app for Japanese users. Similar to iOS 6.1.2, today’s 6.1.3 release is on the smaller side of firmware updates, coming in at either 18.2MB for the iPhone version or 31.7MB for the iPad edition of iOS 6.1.3 for Apple’s over the air (OTA) update.
Download Evasion 1.5.3 Update to Jailbreak iOS 6.1.2 – Following today’s earlier release of Evasi0n 1.5.2, the evad3rs (the dev team responsible for creating the first and only Untethered iOS 6 jailbreak) updated their evasi0n jailbreak tool to version 1.5.3. It seems that, in addition to bringing localization for German, French and Chinese, evasi0n v1.5.2 also causes the utility to crash on Windows. Evasion 1.5.3 simply corrects the unwarranted and bizarre issue with the previous evasi0n update. Also, like with past versions, evasi0n 1.5.3 includes support for jailbreaking iOS 6.0 through 6.1.2 on all iPhone, iPad and iPod touch models that can upgrade to the latest firmwares.
Download Evasi0n 1.5.2 for an UnTethered iOS 6.1.2 Jailbreak – Today, the evad3rs (a semi-new and prominent dev team on the iOS jailbreaking scene) updated their Evasi0n Jailbreak utility to version 1.5.2. The latest edition of evasion is a minor release that brings localizations for French, German and Chinese to the evasi0n 6.1.2 jailbreak tool. Like with previous versions, Evasi0n v1.5.2 supports all iPhone, iPad and iPod touch models on iOS 6.0 through 6.1.2 and jailbreaking with evasion is still a breeze.
How to Jailbreak iPod touch 5G and 4G UnTethered, Jailbreak 6.1.2 – As a reminder to our readers, the staff of Evasion Jailbreak decided to write this in-depth iPod touch jailbreaking reference. In spite of the explicit mention of iPod touch 4th and 5th generation support in our latest evasi0n 1.5.1 iOS 6.1.2 jailbreak tutorial, a number of our readers have questioned whether the utility actually includes support for the two iPod touch models that can upgrade to 6.1.2. In this article, we’ll cover the steps required to jailbreak either your iPod touch 4G or 5G on iOS 6 through 6.1.2, as well as the difference between an UnTethered and a Tethered jailbreak and provide links to our top Cydia tweaks articles for post-jailbreak assistance.
Download Evasi0n 1.5 for an UnTethered 6.1.2 Jailbreak – The Evad3rs (the new and prominent dev team on the jailbreak scene) updated their Evasi0n Jailbreak tool to version 1.5. The new edition of evasion was issued to include the corrections that were issued in the evasion 6.0-6.1.2 Untether Cydia package, which addresses a bug that may cause boot issues on some iOS devices. As with past versions, Evasi0n v1.5 supports all iOS-based devices on iOS 6.0 through 6.1.2 and users can jailbreak just as easily as before.
Download Evasi0n UnTethered Jailbreak 6.1.2 Version 1.4 Utility – Today, the @evad3rs (the official twitter handle for the Evad3rs jailbreak dev team) updated their Evasi0n Jailbreak utility for all iOS 6 devices to version 1.4. The latest update was issued to include support for Apple’s newly-released iOS 6.1.2 firmware. Like with past versions, Evasi0n 1.4 corrects various bugs that jailbreakers experienced when using the initial release of evasion and users can now jailbreak with more ease then before.
Jailbreak 6.1.2 iOS 6.1 UnTethered on iPhone 5, 4S, iPad mini, 4, iPod touch 5G, all iDevices with Evasi0n – Shortly after Apple released iOS 6.1.2 to the public to correct minor bugs, the Evad3rs (the dev team behind the untethered evasion jailbreak) updated their Evasi0n utility to v1.4. Thankfully, because the Untethered exploits utilized by evasi0n were left un-patched, users can now jailbreak Apple’s latest 6.1.2 firmware using Evasi0n version 1.4 or 1.5. The new jailbreaking tool also supports 6.1.2 and older versions of iOS alike, including 6.0, 6.0.1, 6.0.2, 6.1 and 6.1.1. All iOS devices that can upgrade to iOS 6.1.2 can now be jailbroken, with the exception of the Apple TV 3, which, as of now, is unable to be successfully jailbroken due to a lack of exploitable jailbreak vulnerabilities.
As mentioned above, the Evasi0n Jailbreak is compatible with and can successfully jailbreak the following iPhone, iPad and iPod touch models running 6.1.2, 6.1.1, 6.1, 6.0.2, 6.0.1 or iOS 6 (not 6.1.3).
Evasi0n update will Jailbreak 6.1.2 UnTethered – Following the recent iOS 6.1.1 iPhone 4S-exclusive firmware, today Apple has released iOS 6.1.2 to the public for the following iDevices: the iPhone 5, 4S, 4, 3Gs, iPad mini, iPad 4, 3, 2 and, finally, Apple’s iPod touch 5G and 4G. The new 6.1.2 firmware was issued to address an exchange bug that was detailed last week. Interestingly, the 6.1.2 update doesn’t correct a major iOS lock screen security flaw, which leaves users’ phone log vulnerable. Like iOS 6.1.1, today’s 6.1.2 release is on the smaller side of iOS updates, weighing in at a mere 12.8MB for Apple’s over the air (OTA) update. Additionally, the build number has been updated for most iPhone, iPad and iPod touch models to 10B146, save for the cellular-capable iPad 4 and iPad mini models, which carries a build number of 10B147.
