Let me just preface this by telling you this is probably not the jailbreak you have been anticipating, but for the sake of being completionists, we are showing you how to jailbreak a pre-A5 device using the final public version of iOS 6.1.
As you know, the final version of iOS 6.1 just dropped for all devices, and that means that Sunday, we should probably expect a jailbreak of the untethered variety to hit all iOS 6.1 compatible devices outside of the obstinate Apple TV 3 (update: we now know the jailbreak will be called evasi0n). In the interim, however, for those of you wishing to jailbreak Apple’s latest firmware on a pre-A5 device, we’ll show you how.
Check inside for the full video and written tutorial that guides you step-by-step through the process.
It’s almost here, ladies and gentlemen. I know we say this before every jailbreak, but this truly is the most highly anticipated jailbreak to ever hit the community.
Just consider it for a minute: There a more devices supported with this jailbreak than ever before, and there are perhaps many people out there that have never had a taste of jailbreaking before who are anticipating their first time.
Couple this with the fact that it’s been a very long time since we’ve had a jailbreak to begin with, and you can kind of see where I’m going with this. We’re all very excited, but don’t get into so much a frenzy that you forget to cover some essential basics when it comes to preparing for the iOS 6.1 jailbreak. Be prepared, and take these steps.
Remote Messages is a jailbreak tweak that allows users to access full SMS and iMessage functionality on the iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, and iPhone 4S from a desktop browser. It’s a clever utility that allows the iPhone to run as a server, which creates a chat window front-end on desktop browsers. This front-end comes complete with support for profile pictures, attachments, and Emoji icons, as well as for sending and receiving texts. This utility is especially handy if you like to have your phone connected to a stereo away from your desk or if you prefer typing with a full keyboard and screen.
Unfortunately, it seems the $4.99 app is mostly popular with pirates. According to a Reddit thread by the developer, 7 out of 8 installs of Remote Messages are pirated copies…
Some very good news was made known today by one of the members of the evad3rs — the team responsible for the upcoming evasi0n jailbreak. MuscleNerd, who is a well respected part of this team, has made it known that nearly all iOS 6.1 compatible devices will reap the benefits of the upcoming jailbreak.
This means that only the Apple TV 3, and possibly the Apple TV 2 will lack support. As far as every other device goes, they’re fair game. Take a look at our full list of iOS devices that will be jailbreakable on iOS 6.1 after the break…
Is it, or is it not the “GM” release that we’ve all been waiting for? That’s still up for debate, but, regardless if it is or not, it’s unlikely that we’ll see an iOS 6.1 jailbreak released until iOS 6.1 goes public.
In the meantime, if you happen to be a developer, you can enjoy a jailbroken version of iOS 6.1 beta 5 on your pre-A5 device. This jailbreak is a tethered jailbreak only, unless you happen to be rocking an old-bootrom version of the iPhone 3GS.
Take a look inside as I walk you through the step-by-step process of jailbreaking iOS 6.1 beta 5…
Ladies and gents, it has landed. Yes, Auxo, the highly anticipated jailbreak tweak that reinvents the iOS app switcher has gone public on Cydia.
Last week we brought you an exclusive first look at the tweak in action, and needless to say, nearly 200,000 views later, many of you are looking forward to trying it out for yourselves. If you have a jailbroken iPhone running iOS 6, I’m happy to report that you can now download Auxo from Cydia’s BigBoss repo for just $1.99.
Apple seeded the 4th beta installment of iOS 6.1 just a while ago, and it’s now available as both a delta update, and a direct download via Apple’s developer portal.
As we always strive to do, we’ve taken it upon ourselves to jailbreak iOS 6.1 beta 4 as a confirmation that it can be done. Inside, we’ll show you the exact steps that you need to take in order to do the same on your qualifying iOS 6 beta 4 device.
iOS 6.1 beta 3 has been released to developers, and as we always do, we show you how to jailbreak it. This jailbreak is a tethered jailbreak, and works with pre-A5 devices like the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, or iPod touch 4th gen. It also should be reiterated that the jailbreak is for developers only.
Take a look inside as we showcase on video how to jailbreak iOS 6.1 beta 3.
If you’re a developer wishing to jailbreak your pre-A5 device running iOS 6.1 beta, then you’ll be happy to know that it can be easily done using the same method we used to jailbreak the iOS 6.0.1 public release.
This is, of course, a tethered jailbreak, and it only works with pre-A5 devices like the iPhone 4, or the iPhone 3GS. For the full video tutorial, check inside…
iOS 6.0.1 was just released a few minutes ago, but we’ve already confirmed it can be jailbroken right now using the existing jailbreak tools for iOS 6.
Although RedSn0w was recently updated to 0.9.15b3, the update doesn’t yet include support for iOS 6. That’s okay, because you can still point at the already supported iOS 6 firmware and successfully jailbreak iOS 6.0.1.
Check inside for the full video walkthrough that shows how.
The iPhone Dev Team has released RedSn0w 0.9.15b2, which fixes a few items for owners of older devices.
The most outstanding fix is for 3GS owners with old bootroms — RedSn0w 0.9.15b2 brings back untethered jailbreak support for end users who fall into that category.
Most of the changes don’t pertain to owners of newer devices, but it’s always a good idea to ensure that you’re running the latest and greatest version anyway. Take a look inside for the full release notes.
RedSn0w 0.9.15b1 was a gargantuan update. In fact, we’re still trudging through all of the new features. One new addition that has us really excited is the new direct restore option for pre-A5 devices.
This new restore option allows you to downgrade your device without having to fool with host files, stitching, Pwned DFU, iTunes, or anything else that made downgrading so incredibly cumbersome in the past.
We’ve made a step-by-step tutorial that shows you how to use this new restore feature, along with getting by those pesky Mismatched APTicket errors. Check inside for the full tutorial.
