The wait for the untethered jailbreak for iOS 6.1.3, iOS 6.1.4, and iOS 6.1.5 on all devices is over. On Monday, iOS hackers iH8sn0w and Winocm released their p0sixspwn jailbreak tool for Mac OS X; a Windows version is coming soon. P0sixspwn will jailbreak all of the devices that run the previously-mentioned iOS 6 firmwares, but will not jailbreak any variation of iOS 7. If you're looking to jailbreak your iOS 7.0-iOS 7.0.4 device, you will want to use evasi0n7.
P0sixspwn gives you a pretty simple interface:
Those that used redsn0w or sn0wbreeze to jailbreak their iOS 6 device tethered, and then installed the p0sixpwn Cydia package to untether their tethered jailbreak on their A4 device or iPhone 3GS won't have to re-run this tool. Those with A5 devices or later will want to run this tool to achieve an untethered jailbreak, but it will also work with an A4 device or iPhone 3GS that hasn't been jailbroken yet.
With p0sixspwn released, users can now choose to either stay on iOS 6 or upgrade to iOS 7, and have a jailbreak in either instance. So if you're not ready to face the music and upgrade to the iOS 7 interface, the good news is you can be on the latest version of iOS 6 and still have all your goodies.
