Untethered 6.1.3 Jailbreak iPhone 4S, iPad iOS 6.1.4 iPhone 5, How to Avoid Frauds – It’s an endless “game of cat and mouse”. For those of you who haven’t been a part of the jailbreak scene for long, once an Untethered jailbreak is released, like Evasion, Apple patches the exploits utilized in said jailbreak (as they did with 6.1.3). In return, the countless number of users who inevitably update their iPhone, iPad or iPod touch become stuck on the latest firmware without the hope of jailbreaking. After Apple patches a jailbreak utility, the developers and hackers typically go to work discovering new vulnerabilities for future tools, thus repeating the continual cycle. Unfortunately, while members of the jailbreak community wait for the developers to create and release the next UnTethered jailbreak, various scams propagate and spread like wild fire – iOS 6.1.3 and 6.1.4 are no exception.
As mentioned above, when Apple released iOS 6.1.3 to the public, the company effectively corrected and closed a number of the main vulnerabilities utilized by evasi0n to achieve an untethered jailbreak. As a result, only iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and iPod touch 4G owners who update to iOS 6.1.3 can jailbreak using a simple redsn0w workaround. While the main hardware exploit that powers redsn0w will always function for the devices it supports on any firmware, it simply cannot operate on devices Apple has released with upgraded hardware.
Unfortunately, with that said, iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPad 4, iPad Mini, iPad 3, iPad 2 and iPod touch 5G owners cannot jailbreak if they update to iOS 6.1.3. Furthermore, iPhone 5 models that were either upgraded to, or shipped with, iOS 6.1.4 will also be incapable of jailbreaking.
In essence, because the hackers insist on waiting to release the next Untethered solution to ensure maximum compatibility, newer devices on iOS 6.1.3 will be unable to jailbreak until the days of iOS 7, which is when the hackers will push out a new utility. From now until then, don’t believe anything you read or hear about jailbreaking unless you see it here. Evasion Jailbreak is committed to providing our readers with the most reliable jailbreak news and the very best tutorials available on the web.
If you happen to come across a site or someone who claims they can jailbreak iOS devices on the latest firmware, instantly crosscheck with Evasion Jailbreak to confirm its validity. Often times individuals or groups re-package existing tools, which simply cannot function on the latest version of iOS, and either sell a non-functional tool to make a profit or embed some form of a malicious virus.
Both the evad3rs (the small group of developers behind evasion) and p0sixninja (the quondam leader of the Chronic Dev Team) have confirmed development of at least two new jailbreak utilities, scheduled for release sometime after iOS 7. While we certainly understand how frustrating it is to be unable to jailbreak, it’s crucial to remain patient during this period.
Finally, it’s important to realize that we are in no way associated with the developers and hackers behind the creation of jailbreak utilities. We’re Evasion Jailbreak: a blog dedicated to reporting on jailbreaking and iOS devices.
