  • Apple Began Signing iOS 6.0.x Firmware Thursday Evening, Didn't Last Long [UPDATED]


    According to iOS hacker ih8sn0w, Apple has randomly begun signing iOS 6.0.x firmwares, such as iOS 6.0.1. If you need to downgrade your A5+ iOS device so you can jailbreak it with evasi0n, now is the time to do so.

    You will need to place your iOS device into DFU mode and restore via the iOS 6.0.x firmware file. Apple is currently signing the following jailbreakable firmwares:

    iOS 6.0
    iOS 6.0.1
    iOS 6.0.2

    It is unknown how this window of opportunity will last, but many people are reporting success after ih8sn0w's news. Hurry while you have a chance!

    Update: Sorry folks, party is over. Apple is no longer signing the jailbreakable firmwares. DO NOT attempt to restore your firmware to an earlier version, as it will no longer work. Stick with what you have.

      Apple is no longer signing these firmwares. Hopefully at least some people were able to take advantage of the moment.

      There is no good reason why you continually come back here and berate Apple and their products everyday, but you do so all the same.

      So on his Twitter he mentioned something about using this window to get "good" iOS 6 APtickets for devices affected by Saurik's article at Where did my iOS 6 TSS data go? - Jay Freeman (saurik)

      Any clue exactly what that means? I have an old iPhone 3GS that's currently jailbroken on 5.1.1 though I still pull my blobs every few weeks with TinyUmbrella, and just for grins I went ahead and got my missing 6.0 SHSH file during the rush half an hour ago using iFaith. Would that have created a "correct" APTicket this time, and then submitted it to Cydia alongside the SHSH? Or would I have had to have already been on 6.x and pulled it from my own phone during the window for that to work? Does it even matter?

      The phone was deactivated after my last upgrade so I'm not really too concerned, but the way I figure it, the more jailbreaking options I have on this thing the better.
