The final build of iOS 6.1.3 has made its way to the end-users, with bug fixes and improvements over the prior release. Those who are more interested on customizing their devices by jailbreaking, then there’s both good and bad news. Apple has patched Evasi0n untethered jailbreak exploits for iPhone 5 and other newer devices, as confirmed by the company here. So if you accidently updated to 6.1.3, there is no way for you to untether-jailbreak your device. For never devices, there is no option to downgrade to older firmware either. But if you happen to have A4 powered iOS device, you can tether jailbreak iOS 6.1.3, full details after the jump.
Earlier on today, Apple released the final version of iOS 6.1 to the public. Before you get your greasy paws on it, you might be wondering if you can already jailbreak. That is indeed possible with a tethered jailbreak using the latest version of Redsn0w.
Apple has kept the developer betas of iOS 6.1 coming in thick and fast, and with iOS 6.1 beta 2 having just been seeded by the Cupertino company, we're here with the usual jailbreaking details. It is - as ever - a tethered break, and it'll only work with iOS devices susceptible to the Limera1n exploit, so those running A4 or earlier. If you own an iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPad 3/4 or iPad mini, or a fifth-gen iPod touch, you won't be able to participate, since none of them can be jailbroken on iOS 6. If you're rocking an iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, or iPod touch 4th-gen and wish to jailbreak on the latest dev beta, you can do so with ease.
The much anticipated update to The iPhone Dev Team's Redsn0w jailbreak utility brought a ton of features. The updates attached to the revision are probably a lot more notable than most of us would have imagined with one of the new features allowing iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS users to block the baseband update that would generally come attached to updating the firmware on the device. This is great news for owners of one of those two devices who want to experience all that a new version of iOS has to offer without losing a software based unlock on their current baseband.
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.
With Apple recently pushing out the fourth beta of iOS 6 to developers, it represents a chance not only for developers to test and discover the latest changes, but also those who are involved in the production of new jailbreak tweaks to liberate devices that are running this latest beta.
The last couple of days has been rammed full of Apple related goodness with more than enough news coming out of Cupertino to keep the most hardcore Apple fan content. The release of the financial figures for the third quarter of 2012 showed great progress with seriously impressive sales of the iPad and a profit of $8.8 billion raked in during the period. And today, we saw the final retail version of OS X Mountain Lion hitting the Mac App Store, and is all set to consumed by millions of Mac users out there.
Even though, when iOS betas are released by Apple, jailbreaking isn't necessarily number one on users' agendas, many of us like to have the option of installing some of the many great tweaks offered by the community. Thanks to the continual endeavors of the iPhone Dev Team, those having just updated to iOS 6 beta 3 can jailbreak their device using the just released version of Redsn0w.
The jailbreak community and the technology loving world have been talking about it for quite a while now, discussing what they believed would and wouldn't be included in Apple's overhaul of iOS. The Worldwide Developers Conference pretty much confirmed or dismissed all of the speculation, leaving us with the first beta of Apple's iOS 6 software to get our teeth into.
The Redsn0w jailbreak tool is what the jailbreak community considers to be the "Old Faithful". Sure, plenty of other groups get in on the act with their various jailbreak utilities, but it seems as though no matter what firmware version is released, the iPhone Dev Team always comes though with alterations to its iconic tool in order to help iOS users liberate their otherwise heavily-restricted devices.
