Thread: Planetbeing: The Future is Looking Bright for Jailbreaking, Pod2g Urges iOS 6.1 Release

  1. #41
    Will an iPhone 5 jailbreak mean I would be able to unlock a Sprint iPhone 5 and use it on Verizons network?

    iOS 6.0.2 is where the jailbreak sits right now in planetbeing's hands. So there's no reason to stay on an older firmware and not be able to update later down the road.
    Thanks for the quick reply. Makes total sense. I will update my iphone 5 and ipad mini as soon as I can. But I'll probably leave my ipad 2 and iphone 4 on 5.1.1 untethered for now.

    On a similiar note, I have learned to be very cautious before I update due to a couple of my past experiences. I always save my blobs but for some reason everytime I try to downgrade or even do the tethered 6.0.1 jb for iphone 4 I get an itunes error and then I am stuck having to update to the latest firmware. Even after googling everything you could possibly google about itunes errors, still no help. Luckily this was on my brother's iphone 4 and not mine but I can't seem to get past the itunes errors. I think itunes is Apple's biggest flaw.

    I am thinking/hoping that the ios 6 untethered jailbreak will be similar to Absinthe and won't require itunes to complete the process.

    Also, many thanks to the jailbreak developers that are working on this. I for one, do not take any of their work for granted and am very happy that they are doing this for free and in their spare time.

    So let's get this right. My iPad mini running on 6.0.1 I should update this to 6.0.2 ??

    And my iPhone 4S that I have jailbroken and running 5.1.1 I should leave alone.

    Please can you clarify before I update my Mini and should this be a over air update or through iTunes ???
    Update the iPad mini. Keep the 4s at 5.1.1. I updated not thinking and have hated my phone since.

    Also has there ever been a jailbreak that didn't work for all past FW? Meaning if the jb works for 6.0.2 it will work for that FW and older?

    And I'll say it again. I have NEVER seen a jailbreak released for a FW that isn't being signed by apple. Especially sense the iPhone 4S and newer can't even be restored to older FW even with saved blobs and whatnot.

    My guess would be the jail break will be released when it works with 6.1. I could be wrong. And because I don't depend on a jail break and would rather be on a current FW i will be updating when 6.1 is released. And if I'm wrong. Oh well lol
    I have to concur with you on this one, based on the trends of earlier jailbreaks, it would seem (in my opinion) unlikely that the jailbreak would work with the current released firmware.

    However, we must take into account how much more robust 6.1 "may" potentially be.

    iOS 6 has presented some new variables into the equation, and is much more different to solve given a lot of unknowns.

    And the definition of "work" can vary, as it can mean that it will operate correctly on iOS 6.1, but will remain unstable, or it could be fully functional and compatible with iOS 6.1

    Either way, I personally do not believe updating to iOS 6.0.2 for iphone 5 users hurt at all, it may just require a little bit of work to reinstall and restore everything, but if the jailbreak is stable on 6.1 (based on user reviews that will most likely update to 6.1), then those that updated to 6.0.2 can update to 6.1

    If it is not stable, they will be safe on iOS 6.0.2

    so either way

    In addition to what Anthony said about making sure to use itunes to update opposed to over-the-air, I would suggest that when you use itunes to always restore to the latest version instead of update to the latest version. It will make it easier to downgrade in the future if you have your blobs saved and ever needed to downgrade.

    It is explained on the Dev Team Blog that OTA updates have the "wrong kind" of ramdisk that is missing the necessary vulnerability to bypass the APTicket system. This is why we recommend not using it.

    Thanks, I just don't want the JB to be on 6.0.2 and by the time I try to upgrade I can only go to 6.1.

    Right, that's why I am recommending iOS 6.0.2. I'm on iOS 6.0.2 on my own iPhone 5 as well.

    It's not the same. But just in case, we like to do it.

    We never know what they have up their sleeves for the future.

    It's all about preparation.

    Point redsnow to a iPhone 5,2 firmware. Mine is 5,2 as well.

    What am I missing with this update to 6.0.2? I'm on 6.0.1, and both iTunes, and the phone say that I'm up to date with firmware, there's no 6.0.2 option for me. Verizon 4S.

    You're fine. iOS 6.0.2 is for iPhone 5 and iPad Mini only.

    iOS 6.0.2
