The upcoming iOS 6.1 untethered jailbreak will support almost all devices [Updated]

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…

Earlier today, Apple released iOS 6 beta 4 to developers. We’ve discovered a handful of new features and other changes in the update, but there’s one thing that stayed the same.

Dev Team frontman MuscleNerd has just confirmed that beta 4 is still jailbreakable with the latest version of RedSn0w (0.9.13 dev 3). There’s just a few things to remember…

RedSn0w 0.9.14b2 released with improved baseband downgrading

Last month, the Dev Team released a new version of RedSn0w that allowed iPhone 3G (and some 3GS) users to downgrade their basebands. This was a big deal for users who had been stuck on the problematic 06.15 bb.

Today, the Dev Team has pushed out an update to the jailbreak utility that greatly improves on this feature. The downgrading process has been made simpler, and now works on a much wider range of devices.
