  • iH8sn0w: iOS 6.1.3/6.1.4 A5+ Untethered Jailbreak Tool Should Be Released This Week


    Alongside the evad3rs' release of evasi0n7, an untethered jailbreak for iOS 7, another set of hackers, iH8sn0w and Winocm, were working on an untethered jailbreak for iOS 6.1.3, iOS 6.1.4, and iOS 6.1.5.

    So far, they have released the p0sixspwn untether package for A4 devices and the iPhone 3GS that works with iOS 6.1.3-iOS 6.1.5, and can be installed on devices that are jailbroken tethered either with redsn0w or sn0wbreeze, but the hackers are also looking to release a separate tool that will offer an untethered jailbreak for A5 and later iOS devices.

    On Wednesday, iOS hacker iH8sn0w used Twitter to tell the jailbreak community that the hackers are busy spending time with their families right now, but they are hoping to have their jailbreak tool ready by the end of this week. The tool will jailbreak A5 and later iOS devices running iOS 6.1.3 and iOS 6.1.4. On Sunday, the hackers teased the untethered jailbreak running on an iPod touch 5g, which is an A5 device.

    It's important that the hackers take all of the time that they need so they can fine-tune the jailbreak to be as bug-free as possible. A buggy jailbreak would mean chaos for users, and the potential loss of their iOS 6 jailbreak, which could force them to upgrade to iOS 7 (which can be jailbroken also, but due to the major user interface change, many don't wish to upgrade to it).

    If you're waiting on the iOS 6.1.3/6.1.4 untethered jailbreak for your A5 or later iOS device, our best advice to you is to just remain patient. We will keep you updated on the latest.

      Didn't Apple stop signing 6.1.3?

      If you are at 6.1.3 then you can get untethered. If you are not , then restore to 6.1.5 and get untethered . Basically 3GS is pwned for life.

      There is no 6.1.5 for he 3GS. 6.1.4 is only for the iPhone 5, and 6.1.5 is only for the 4th gen iPod touch. 6.1.5 was only a FaceTime fix and the 3GS doesn't support FaceTime.

      so there is no separate untethered jailbreak tool for 3GS? except using redsnow/snowbreeze (tethered) and then install untethered via cydia?

      The effort is great, but why spend it on 6? All new devices are iOS 7, iOS 6 is old school...

      I've had every iPhone,iPad made. Don't trust the new 7 jailbreak.

      Then 6.1.3 which is the last firmware and forever being signed gets untethered for new bootrom.

      A new version of Sn0wbreeze is in the works, but there's still no ETA on that.

      Because apple won't patch the iOS 6 jailbreak and some devices that were on the later versions of iOS 6 can't be updated to 7.

      When snowbreeze gets updated, millions with A4 chips will be happy. Great effort by this Canadian hacker from Toronto , iH8sn0w

      If you have an old iPhone and are still using it, the data and rate plan is the same as a new one.

      In most cases you can sell you old phone and buy a new one with updated contract and make money if you don't wait too long. Might as well.

      That is true. I was wanting a phone overhaul, but got a software overhaul. I prefer the iOS 6 look. iOS 7, IMO, looks like a kid threw pastel crayons into the phone. Lol. iOS 7 will be better with the jailbreak. Hoping for bigger folder sizes. 9 per screen kills me.

      You realize you don't need a jailbreak to increase don't size right?
