  • Planetbeing Hopes to Release iOS 6.1 Untethered Jailbreak After About a Week


    Ever since the official public release of iOS 6.1 yesterday, the iOS hacker team, known as evad3rs, has been hard at work in debugging and building a jailbreak method. It was confirmed that the public version of iOS 6.1 was jailbreak safe, and that the iOS 6.1 untethered jailbreak would include over 22 variants of iOS devices including the new iPhone 5, iPad Mini, iPod touch 5G, and latest iPad with retina display.

    Planetbeing, part of the evad3rs iOS hacking team, has come forward early Tuesday morning saying that he hopes the iOS 6.1 untethered jailbreak will be ready after about a week. As expected, he says there’s always the possibility that it could come sooner or later, depending on their luck and progress.

    MuscleNerd also hinted on Monday that something special might surface on Super Bowl Sunday. Perhaps the iOS 6.1 untethered jailbreak? No one knows for sure yet.

    Planetbeing also says that there’s no rush to get your devices to iOS 6.1 just yet, however if you want to be prepared for the inevitable, you can update right now if you want to. Be sure to update through iTunes instead of OTA (over the air) updating. Planetbeing recommends a full restore to iOS 6.1.

    TinyUmbrella was also updated with iOS 6.1 support so you can save your iOS 6.1 SHSH blobs – alternatively, you can also use redsn0w. The blobs aren't very useful at this point in time, but they may turn up useful in the future.

      Is that not the real Evaders twitter feed?
      The one you are following only has 1000 followers. The real one has 57k.

      You decide!

      I'm just gonna do an OTA update. I've got a new laptop and there is no way in hell that I'm going to restore through iTunes. iTunes is a pain in my butt! Every time I do a restore through iTunes I end up losing files. iTunes software seems to be strict and cranky all the time.

      I am sure this will be my last update on my iphone5 anyway, so OTA won't hurt.

      I will say that from now on I'm not buying a new iPhone until the jailbreak is pending. I sold my iPhone 4 to get the iPhone 5 in October and throughout the last four months I've regretted getting rid of the iPhone 4. I MUCH prefer the jailbroken 4 to the non-JB 5.

      I have two iPhone 5's, an iPad Mini, and an iPad Retina in my house all patiently waiting. Best of luck to the evad3ers! Thank you guys for your hard work, and we're in the final stretch, so stay strong! We're all pulling for you!

      I swear the quality of writing here deteriorates by the day…
      You know this isn't the only place to get your news? Instead of PMing the writer to critique you decide to put him on blast and post completely off topic.


      I for one am excited for the jailbreak. It's been quite a while for me. I've been on iOS 6 from beta 1 so I haven't been jailbroken for quite some time.

      It's been posted all over. I also believe mmi put out a news article on it with direct links to the twitter page

      It's an easy trap to fall into if you're not careful. The scammers are getting quite good at their profession. You'll find @evad3rs_jb, @evad3rs_team, evad3rs.net, evad3rs_jb.com, etc., all of which are fake, but giving out plausible-looking information. Following MMI is a safe bet if you're unsure.

      The point is, if hackers ever find a vulnerability in the APTicket system for iOS 6, and you update via OTA, there may not be a way for you to get back on iOS 6.1 in the future when apple stops signing it and you want to restore to a fresh iOS 6.1.

      It's your choice, however we recommend playing it safe.

      The slow, terribly inept iPhone 4 is painful to use. I know this, I've been using it as a test device for my jailbreak tweak reviews.

      Because pod2g tells you on Twitter who to follow and who not to follow.

      I thought I clicked follow after using the link you all posted here. I admit I'm new to Twitter. So I could have done a 'search' in the phone app for Twitter then just followed the one marked official. It had over 1500 followers. Sure thought it was the real deal. Thanks all for setting me straight. I've never had a need for Twitter before now.

      If you notice in twitter, the @evad3rs is following 4 people. You want to add these 4 to your follow, as this is where you are going to get your info from.

      Wasn't me that gave you that link. You must have found them from searching. Don't feel too bad, they duped 1000 other people too lol

      Warning to all T-Mobile iPhone users considering updating from 6.0.2 to 6.1:

      Your 3G coverage will be DRASTICALLY diminished!!! I was loving the fact that that my iPhone was FINALLY getting very fast 3G download rates with very good coverage (even faster than friends' 4G speeds). However, after updating via iTunes to 6.1 I noticed that my 3G coveraged sucked!!! I went to see a so-called Genius @ the Apple store (where I purchased the phone) & they did a Deep Firmware Restore... & it's still the same! Anyway, I'm returning this phone & exchanging it for the 6.0.2 version.

      Does anyone know if when the 6.1 JailBreak is released if it willl work on 6.0.2???

      Thanks~ Joey

      Updating to iOS 6.1 will be your best bet. Just update.

      Developers will be developing tweaks for iOS 6.1, the latest jailbreakable firmware. Some of these tweaks may not be compatible with older versions of iOS 6.

      I'm laying bets that this will be another Greenpois0n injector for the 6.1 jailbreak. Anybody wanna bet against me in favor of ReSn0w? Lol!!

      With MuscleNerd involved, redsn0w will definitely be getting the support.

      I'm the type of user that likes testing things out to see what worx and doesn't work. I don't mind doing restores if it gives me (and hopefully, others) more knowledge about what programs I'm putting on my devices.

      I should've done the OTA update but I didn't... I wish I had because I'd like to see if any problems occur w/ it. If so, then that info 'might' be useful to the Devs.
