P0sixspwn Untether Package Now Supports Recently-released iOS 6.1.6
If you have a jailbroken iPhone 3GS or iPod touch 4g and you updated (or want to update) to the recently-released iOS 6.1.6 to fix the nasty SSL connection verification bug that plagued the iOS operating system, then you no longer have to hyperventilate about the lack of an untethered jailbreak.
iOS hacker ih8sn0w has confirmed with us that the recently-released version 1.4-1 of the p0sixspwn untethered jailbreak package in Cydia supports iOS 6.1.6 (although the Cydia description still only says 6.1.3-6.1.5).
While the hacker has not yet updated the p0sixspwn jailbreak tool to support iOS 6.1.6, he does confirm with us that we can still use another jailbreak tool, such as redsn0w, to jailbreak iOS 6.1.6 tethered, and then just install the p0sixspwn (version 1.4-1) untether package from Cydia to achieve the untethered jailbreak status.
He notes that it's not a high priority at the moment for the p0sixspwn jailbreak tool to be updated with support for iOS 6.1.6, but he does tell us that an update is coming in the future.
Those with other non-iPhone 3GS and non-iPod touch 4g iOS devices running iOS 6 that don't want to upgrade to iOS 7.0.6 have the option of installing Ryan Petrich's SSLPatch tweak
, which is a home-brew fix for the SSL connection verification bug.
