  • iOS Hackers Deem iOS 6.1 Jailbreak Safe, Go Ahead and Update Through iTunes


    iOS hackers MuscleNerd and planetbeing have both confirmed that the public release of iOS 6.1 is jailbreak safe! The update is vulnerable to all of the vulnerabilities that the hackers had planned on using to jailbreak iOS 6.1. That being said, update away! (Through iTunes)

    According to planetbeing, while the firmware can be jailbroken, it's going to take a little while to get everything all polished up, bug free, and get a jailbreak method that can be released to the public:



    If you’re excited to jailbreak your iOS 6.1 devices, the good news is it’s only a matter of time now. The jailbreak will include 22 different variants of iOS devices, including Apple’s new iPhone 5, iPod touch 5G, iPad (fourth generation), and iPad Mini. It will also include older iOS devices that can run iOS 6.1, excluding the Apple TV 3, for now. You can view our post to see the full list of supported devices.

      If you try to JB your OTA'ed 6.1 it might still work
      but you won't be able to downgrade back to 6.1 in the future.
      And jailbreaking it in the future might be "hard" or "real hard" or "impossible".
      And if you OTA another update on top of JB'n 6.1 you lose both your current jailbreak,
      AND the possibility of restoring to a previous jailbreakable firmware.
      I jumped the gun and did the OTA before I heard I should use iTunes. Could I restore with iTunes and undo whatever the OTA affected?

      Yes, you can!
      Make an iTunes device backup first (just to be safe).

      The trouble with OTA isn't that it does something BAD that needs to be undone,
      but that it fails to do something GOOD, that you might need later.

      If you're using OTA'ed 6.0.x, just update to 6.1 with iTunes. No need to redo the 6.0.x.
      If you're on OTA'ed 6.1, restore to 6.1 with iTunes.

      You could always download the .ipsw and hit option + restore from iTunes, select the IPSW and do it that way

      1. Apple would not do that
      2. It won't install if it is the wrong version

      Thanks
      There are a lot of dodgy sites, some of them have "absinthe" in the name
      so I'd hesitate to recommend trying one at random, without a closer look.

      But OSX Daily has a list of direct links to the Apple server:
      iOS 6.1 Update Released [Direct Download Links]

      (by the way, which model is yours?
      Sometimes apple delays release by a few hours (????) for certain models in certain regions.)
