cydia 6-1-3

Hackers winocm and iH8sn0w posted an interesting video last night, demonstrating what appeared to be a working untethered jailbreak for iOS 6.1.x. The clip shows a 5th gen iPod touch on iOS 6.1.3 navigating Cydia and running Surenix’s popular ayecon theme.

The move puts an end to the radio silence we’ve been experiencing since early October, when winocm gave a definite ETA for the iOS 6.1.x jailbreak as ‘before 2014.’ But don’t get your hopes up. It still doesn’t look like it’s going to be released publicly anytime soon…

First, here’s the video:

And the accompanying text:

“Untethered n78ap (iPod touch 5) on 6.1.3.

Works for all devices running 6.1.3/6.1.4/6.1.5 (except AppleTV3). This is the only A5 device I have that is on 6.1.3.

Why is this not public yet?
Some vulns that were used to make this possible are still available in iOS 7. :(“

While this is probably not what a lot of folks wanted to hear, it’s definitely for the best. Releasing this jailbreak to the public right now would expose some currently usable vulnerabilities to Apple, thus burning any chance of the evad3rs using them for the iOS 7 jailbreak.

Speaking of the iOS 7 jailbreak, there has been a rumor floating around that the evad3rs had some work stolen from them by someone and sold to a private third party. But team member pod2g has denied the claim, and said that work on iOS 7 is moving along, slowly.

So the name of the game right now is patience folks. Just sit tight, and we’ll be sure to let you know as soon as more information becomes available. Keep in mind that the evasi0n jailbreak didn’t come out until February of this yearβ€”5 months after iOS 6 was released.

    We will be patient then. πŸ™‚

    • Mozaik

      That’s the spirit guys πŸ™‚

    • Azat Dav

      No need to be! iOS 7 jailbreak is already out!!! πŸ™‚ check evad3rs website!

      • Elias Chao

        Well, iPod 4th Gen & iPhone 3GS can’t get the iOS 7 update, so there are some users who will be happy with iOS 6.1.X jailbreak.

  • Abdullah Al-Temimy

    Well, I guess there’s no iOS 7 jailbreak coming πŸ™‚

  • Sympho Ny

    Is anyone aware if ios 6.1.2 tweaks must be updated to work on ios 6.1.3/6.1.4 ? or if it should work as is.

  • leart

    I am still on 6.0.1 jailbroken thanks to evasi0n and semirestore πŸ™‚
    I dont know who will use this on 6.1.3 coz we that are jailbroken on 6.1.2 and below cant upgrade anymore on 6.1.3 (A5+) and peope who in the first time remained on ios 6 after 7 come out, loosed their patience and upgrated..
    So this will be for a very limited number of people i guess

    • Hex

      I’m on 6.1.3 jailbroken right now…

    • There are still lots of iPhone 3Gs and iPod 4G users (like me) out there. Don’t be that selfish.
      I had to restore to iOS 6.1.3 because my blobs didn’t work and there wasn’t something like SemiRestore yet.

    • Adriano Matos

      Yeah. The ones like me that owns a 3GS and can’t update to iOS 7 or the ones that don’t like iOS 7 and that can not downgrade. So i guess there aren’t such “limited number”.

  • Redbirdz

    Well if the IOS 6.1.3/6.1.4 Jailbreak is going to be released alongside the IOS 7 jailbreak, then whats the point of it being made in the first place? People stayed back on IOS 6.1.3/4 for the sole reason of obtaining a jailbreak sooner than on IOS 7. If they are released simultaneously then the latter jailbreak would become useless. I would rather just update to IOS 7 and jailbreak from there. This is a big but understandable disappointment.

    • on3simpleclick

      Because even if a jailbreak is released for both iOS6 & iOS7 at the same time, myself & a lot of people still don’t intend to update lol. Your arrogance is laughable.

      • Redbirdz

        Forgive me for asking but why would you want to stay on IOS 6.1.3/4 if there was a jailbreak available for a higher firmware?

      • on3simpleclick

        Have you tried using iOS7 on any device that is older than an iPhone 5? It’s almost too slow to even bother using., let alone enjoying it. I’ve had my 4S for close to 2 years & do not intend upgrading my phone until it ceases to function & the last thing I would do, is try putting up with a sluggish operating system.

      • Redbirdz

        Ah ok that makes sense. I myself own an iPhone 4S. Looks like i wont be upgrading either. thanks for the headsup

    • Ricky

      Because not everybody likes the new iOS

      • on3simpleclick

        I personally hate how iOS7 looks. Maybe once I see some skinning done via Winterboard or whatever tweak they use, then that might change my mind.

  • on3simpleclick
