  • 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.

      Oo. Been a long time since we had a web based one! Was that with Comex's JB 3.x.x? Or 4.3.3?

      Any guess's anyone??
      Prolly wouldnt be called Absinthe since its not entirely affiliated w/ the ChronicDevTeam. I'm sure they've come up w/ a new name!!! The new jailbreak, though, might incorporate certain pieces of the Absinthe jailbreak tools.

      Remember last time, 5.1.1, MuscleNerd, I think, was the main guy preparing the injector but then he gave the whole project to Greenpois0n. So I believe Muscle will likely do the same thing again - if for no other reason than that Greenpois0n builds the easiest injector systems. RedSn0w is very convoluted with it IPSW creation step. When Greenpois0n gave us 4.2.8 and then 5.1.1 I was so relieved. 4.3.3 was even easier. But I remember the RedSn0w thing when I was a noob and it was so much harder to learn to do.

      evad3rs are a group of multiple people with plural name so it should be evad3rs have been, not evad3rs has been.

      I swear the quality of writing here deteriorates by the day…
      They've been hard at work for months, not a few hours. Have a little more respect for this group, and this forum.
      These guys have been dedicating all their free time to this jailbreak, and are GIVING it to you free of charge.

      Not to have this hopelessly digress to a grammar war - but you're understanding of grammar isn't 'quote right' there. The truth is either 'has been' or 'have been' are proper depending on the context.

      Evad3rs (generally speaking - some nonspecific group) HAVE been...
      Evad3rs (the specific group as a whole) HAS been..

      ACtually the 2nd choice there sounds way better to my native English years. And not to prop myself up - as that's uncool - but I'm the administrator/moderator of one of the larger Spanish grammar forums on the net. I know my grammar English and Spanish... But again - not to digress - just had to say it.. lol!!

      One other common English mistake is to change the verb to meet the last word said as in - "Each of them HAVE been...." which is 100% incorrect. It can only be - "Each of them HAS been.." - though that's a very common mistake in English even from reasonably educated speakers..

      BACK to Jailbreak now..

      But this time, it hasn't been a ChronicDev project. Pod2g used to be part of them and then disappeared. He resurfaced, found an exploit, worked it out and gave it to ChronicDev to package it.

      This go around, it 'sounds' like he and PBeing have done most of the leg work. They brought in the other two to finalize it but there hasn't really been any mention of ChronicDev.

      Besides...@chronic is too busy doing unlocks that he might not even be interested! I don't know if I've seen one comment by him mentioning the jailbreak...

      Don't get me wrong, I'd prefer a GPoison jailbreak over redsn0w but a userland exploit would be even BETTER!!!!

      How come? What's the difference?

      In either case, click jailbreak, and done.

      Not RedSn0w. Don't you have to create an IPSW with RS?

      corollary: do not insult mods of MMi. Insulting mods and users of other popular iOS forums appears to be ok. :P (except when its not)

      You have to create an IPSW with sn0wbreeze, not redsn0w.

      Last tine I used RedSn0w I had to make an IPSW. But it was a long time ago and I may have been doing a downgrade and not a JB. Thanks for the info, Anthony.

      Depends on what you are doing. Redsnow these days has so many extra features in it. For just jailbreaking right now it is either one click if on 5.1.1 using the absinthe method to jailbreak. Or if you use the old ramdisk method (limera1n exploit way) it is one click then enter DFU.

      I thought (w/ redsn0w) we have to go through the DFU MODE thing? GP was click and jailbreak. Maybe I'm wrong, though...

      redsn0w let's you pick between DFU mode or as Simon just mentioned, the backup and restore mode.

      DFU mode is supposed to be more stable with iCloud.

      So is it setup, now, to 'click and jailbreak' or do we still have to go through the DFU steps?
