Could We Perhaps Be Looking At An Untethered iOS 6.1 Jailbreak By This Sunday?
Itís big news today that Apple launched iOS 6.1 to the public after having just launched the fifth beta on Saturday evening. Itís even bigger news that iOS hackers planetbeing and MuscleNerd have been all over the update, and have deemed the update as jailbreak safe, meaning that all of the vulnerabilities found for iOS 6.1 thus far will work with the public release. (So go ahead and update via iTunes!)
So this brings up the big question: How long until the untethered jailbreak for iOS 6.1? While we donít know for sure just yet, MuscleNerd has teased the possibility of a Sunday release in one of his Tweets, where he asks what everyone will be doing on Sunday, the day of the Super Bowl, and CCs the evad3rs hacking team:
<blockquote class="twitter-tweet"><p>Hey, did everyone know the Super Bowl is this Sunday? What will you be doing? /cc @<a href="https://twitter.com/evad3rs">evad3rs</a> <a href="http://t.co/9fEgKI3b" title="http://evad3rs.com">evad3rs.com</a></p>— MuscleNerd (@MuscleNerd) <a href="https://twitter.com/MuscleNerd/status/295964113270620160">January 28, 2013</a></blockquote>
<script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>
Planetbeing made it clear in one of his Tweets that the jailbreak could take a little time to finish up, as it needs some polishing in terms of hammering out the bugs and creating a tool that the public can download and use to jailbreak their iOS 6.1 devices. In the past, the time it took for hackers to do this wasnít very long, so this could be a good sign for the future jailbreak as well.
While MuscleNerd, nor the rest of the eva3ders, have not yet clarified what has been planned for Sunday, the Tweet seems mysterious enough to take into consideration. Either way, it should be interesting to see what surprises the hackers have up their sleeves.

Any one think I should start prepping my 4S for a long awaited update from 5.1.1 to 6.1? Pkgbackup, iCloud backup etc?

So the surveys said that when the new google maps came out a lot of people moved into iOS6, lets see how the chars go this time lol
Im so totally waiting for its release before updating, meanwhile, time to backup stuff...
I'm doing that at this moment, Dropbox, Senuti, iCloud are doing their thing right now

I hope they surprise us and offer it before Sunday!
Early bird gets the jailbreak!

Looking more forward to Sunday now. Cause as we all know Sunday is usually funday

Any day would be good just knowing it will work on 6.1 is a relief
01-28-2013, 03:07 PM #18
I made a list of the tweaks I had when I updated from 5.0.1 to 5.1.1 now to find that list...

Thank the gods! Or evaders! Same thing really!! I cannot wait to see "Preparing filesystem" in my iPhone 5! It's finally here!!
The niners in the Superbowl (my team ever since I was a baby) and a new jailbreak on the same day = Best day EVER!! Although it is possible it's released before...even if it was released today, people would just be enjoying their jailbreak on Sunday rather than actually jailbreaking it!El Zurdo
