  • iOS Hacker Winocm Has a Binary That Can Untether an iOS 6.1.3 Jailbreak, But Needs Work


    On Friday morning, iOS hacker winocm announced via his Twitter account that he has a binary that can untether a tethered jailbreak for older devices running iOS 6.1.3.

    The tethered jailbreak is only for devices that are susceptible to the limera1n exploit, like the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod touch 4G, and so on. Tethered means that you need to connect your device to a computer and run the boot up utility in the jailbreak tool to reboot the device, while with an untethered jailbreak, you can reboot your jailbroken device freely without having to connect to a computer.

    Since the binary is intended for untethering an existing tethered jailbreak, the binary would only work for the listed devices, and not newer ones like the iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPod touch 5G, and so on. Winocm lets us know that his untether is working on his iPhone 4, but still needs a lot of work.

    Notably, the hacker also says that the binary is useless for iOS 7. Specifically, this binary is only for iOS 6.1.3 and no other firmware version. iOS 6.0 through iOS 6.1.2 can be jailbroken untethered already with the evasi0n jailbreak tool.

    Winocm has no information regarding any kind of release at this point in time, as the binary still needs work. But nonetheless, it's neat to see that some progress is being made and is surely great news for some of those running iOS 6.1.3 at this time.

      I was on vacation & my iPhone 5 encountered the "Frozen Apple" boot loop so I had to do a full Restore & lost my JailBreak.

      I still don't know what caused the crash but I DO know that I do NOT miss the problems associated with maintaining a JailBreak!!!

      Until the day comes (if ever) that iOS is PERNAMENTLY JailBreakable across the board, good riddance Apple & hello Android...

      A full restore was not necessary.

      Enjoy Android, I hope your experience of it is more favourable than mine.

      This would be good for those people stuck on a tether.

      My wife and I have always had iPhones but she recently went to a Samsung S4 (and I purchased my i5 about a month before the S4's release) and I have to say that it is incredibly nice as well as just has an outstanding number of features. Literally the only thing that the S4 lacks is the high quality voice dictation and Siri and a lot of the good high quality games I like are not on Play Store. I honestly believe that I am going to sell my iPhone 5 and put it towards an S4 or possibly do this new device deal with AT&T. It has so many more options and usability. With a root it's almost amazing.

      Plus, iOS 7 is visually hideous! Without Jaku I want nothing to do with GUI Of iOS anymore. Thank God I can convert Jaku to android

      it's highly probable that a jailbreak for iOS 7 will occur

      No but I CAN confirm it runs on the iPhone 7S with iOS 11. Running a beta of it right now, decently stable too 👍. The tool is called "F4keBreak"
