  • 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.

      Now if that's the case can't we DFU the device and setup as new phone to make it go back to how it was per say...?
      Or am I missing something?
      Correct, and correct.

      If you updated OTA, just DFU restore back to the firmware you're on right now and you'll have everything all set.

      No, I don't lose them. Because iCloud saves that stuff for me. iCloud is great.

      Thanks bro that's what I figured but just needed some clarity. Now if my blobs were saved on 6.1 could I still be setup for success when downgrades are possible? If and whenever that happens?

      I've always restored from backup and its never caused me any troubles. It's one of Apple's central and most trustworthy tools. No worries.

      If your blobs are saved AND you got to your current firmware via iTunes restore (not OTA), then you might be eligible for a downgrade in the future when hackers find a way to do so.

      One more question:
      I ran StifleStand on my iPhone, will this have any bearing on the jailbreak?

      Nah. It shouldn't. It's just taking advantage of a reversible OS glitch.

      My guess is it will be a brand new tool, with @pimskeks saying ". @planetbeing nice! The GUI is also making progress :-)" if he's working on a brand new GUI, I'm 99% positive it will be a new tool altogether.

      Ok people. I think this should be a legitimate question.
      I am on i4, 6.0.1, tethered JB and I am sure, not the only one in this world. I hope there will be also something like Rocky Racoon on Cydia, as the last time for 5.1., just to switch from tethered to untethered jailbreak
