iH8sn0w: iOS 6.1.3/6.1.4 A5+ Untethered Jailbreak Tool Will be Released for Mac First
iOS hacker iH8sn0w has been keeping the jailbreak community updated
on Twitter about the progress of his A5+ jailbreak tool for iOS 6.1.3 and iOS 6.1.4. The last we heard from him, the tool was expected to be released as early as this week.
On Saturday, iH8sn0w made the announcement on Twitter that the jailbreak tool he has been working on with iOS hacker Winocm for jailbreaking A5 and later devices running iOS 6.1.3 and iOS 6.1.4 is coming together nicely. iH8sn0w expects that the tool will be a Mac-only release initially, and that a Windows version of the tool will be released a few days afterwards.
With this arriving jailbreak tool, iOS device users will have the choice of staying with the latest versions of iOS 6, or upgrading to iOS 7, and either way, they'll have a jailbreak; this gives users the ability to choose between keeping the classic iOS 6 interface, or upgrading to the new flatter iOS 7 interface, while keeping the best of both worlds in both cases. The evad3rs released evasi0n7
for those running iOS 7.0-iOS 7.0.4, and this tool can be opened and used on Mac or Windows.
The hackers released a teaser video of the jailbreak running on an iPod touch 5g a few days before Christmas that can be viewed below:
