iOS hacker and jailbreak wiz Winocm, who is currently working to jailbreak iOS 6.1.3 as well as 6.1.4 has given a "definite ETA" on making his efforts a tangible success "before 2014." Thus, it would seem that he is indeed making strides, and although many iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users are currently waiting and hoping for news on a possible iOS 7 jailbreak, this is certainly a good day for the jailbreak scene in general.
Developer Winocm has successfully managed to jailbreak iOS 6.1.4 on both CDMA and GSM version of iPhone 5. Details as usual are scarce at this very moment, it is highly recommended that you ignore any update at this point for your iOS device and wait for further confirmation on the progress being made on this untethered jailbreak for 6.1.4.
As far as prominent figures in the jailbreak community go, Joshua Hill - also known as P0sixninja - is up there with the best of them. If you remove his various public Twitter based meltdowns from the equation, you are left with a person who has undoubtedly been one of the most important components in the production of recent jailbreaks. Although we haven't heard a great deal from him since his rather acrimonious departure from the Chronic Dev Team, it looks like he could be potentially about to propel himself back to the top of the pecking order after claiming to have all the necessary exploits required for the production of a new jailbreak.
The Evad3rs team has updated its famed Evasi0n tool to jailbreak iOS 6, 6.1, 6.1.2 with improved boot times. Some users were finding the post-jailbreak boot time was considerably longer than it should have been, but this latest update fixes all that. Those already jailbroken need not jailbreak again; instead check within your Cydia packages for the updated list, which should become apparent after a refresh.
iPhone Dev-Team have just updated Redsn0w, adding full support for final public release of iOS 6 on select devices with official version of Cydia, along with tons of new features which are detailed after the jump.
As is usually the case when this time comes around, jailbreakers have been waiting patiently for the official word on whether it is safe to update their devices to iOS 6 or not. Although Apple have taken some design and functionality inspiration from a number of Cydia based tweaks and offerings, the hardcore jailbreak faithful still need to experience that freedom on their hardware.
