How to jailbreak iOS 6.1.2

Notes: As always, before we get started, there are a few things to keep in mind here. First, read our jailbreak preparation post. It covers a few vital ideas that should make your life easier when it comes to managing and maintaining your jailbreak.

Be sure that your device’s passcode lock is disabled. The passcode lock can interfere with the jailbreak process. Also, make sure that when you upgraded to iOS 6.1.2, it was done, not via an OTA update, but via an iTunes update. While it’s possible that it will work, OTA updates have caused known problems in the past with regard to jailbreaks, it’s best to just play it safe. Okay, let’s get started!

Step 1: Head over to our download page, and download evasi0n 1.4. The downloads are available for Mac, Windows, or Linux.

Step 2: Save the evasi0n app to your desktop, and run it.

Step 3: Connect your iOS device to evasi0n, and ensure that evasi0n detects your device. Evasi0n should work with any iOS 6 firmware from iOS 6.0 to iOS 6.1.2. In this case, you will be using iOS 6.1.2.

Step 4: Click the jailbreak button, and the jailbreak process will begin. Be patient, as this takes a while. You will notice your device reboot several times throughout the entire process. The main thing is just to be patient.

Step 5: Eventually, evasi0n will ask you to unlock your device, and tap the Jailbreak icon on your Home screen once. Follow these instructions, ensuring that you tap the icon only one time, and then leave the device alone and let it continue.

Step 6: The evasi0n app will complete its course, and you will be able to click the Exit button. The iOS device, however, still needs to finish up a few additional steps, so again, be patient and don’t touch your device.

Step 7: Eventually, the jailbreak will finish, and you can unlock your iOS device, and open the Cydia app on your Home screen. Cydia will need to initialize, which takes about 1 to 2 minutes. After the initialization is complete, the device will respring again.

Step 8: Reopen Cydia, select Hacker, and begin enjoying your newly jailbroken iOS device running iOS 6.1.2.

Remember, this is an untethered jailbreak, so you can feel free to reboot your device at will. Also, remember to take the necesarry steps to protect your jailbreak. you can do so by reading our post that describes how to protect device.

  • Lizzie

    Please help! I’ve tried everything to fix “No Service” to no avail! I have iphone 3gs oldBR with 6.1.2 and BB 5.13.00. I used redsn0w to jailbreak (downgraded baseband and didn’t instal Cydia), then justboot through redsn)w, then evasi0n 1.5. Then in Cydia I installed repo for ultrasn0w and downloaded 1.2.8. Didn’t work. I’ve tried using mobile substrate for 1.2.7 and ultrasn0w 1.2.7 through diskaid, with the fix (6.1) installed first, restarted 2-3 times. I’ve restored and tried this process a number of times, and still no service……

    • Lizzie

      I tried with SAM too, and nothing.

    I need some help please. I have an iPhone 4 with iOS 6.1.2. I downloaded the evasi0n 1.4, I run it, then tried to connect my iPhone to my laptop and the evasi0n 1.4 can’t “read” my phone. What should I do???

  • CJ Payne

    Hi guys, bit confused here – first time JB’er, am I right in assuming that because my 4S is running 6.1.2, I will need to restore to 6.x.x to run evasion 1.4?

  • fwise

    do we choose hacker or user?

  • jay gb

    Ok guys. I’ve now done the above. ie ive now upgraded to ios 6.1.2 and have also jailbroken my 3GS with evasi0n. Unfortunately I had no idea that upgrading to ios 6.1.2 would also upgrade my baseband to 06.15.00. I’m aware that this is an ipad baseband and a downgrade is required using the redsn0w jailbreak tool. My problem is that I don’t have any previous baseband saved nor do I know which one to downgrade too. Does anybody now of a tried and tested walkthrough that is available for me to view online.

    Many thanks in advance and keep up the good work guys πŸ˜‰
