    Default Planetbeing: iOS 6.1.2 Jailbreakable on iPhone 5 and iPad Mini, Possibly Others


    iOS hacker planetbeing has just announced via Twitter that Tuesday’s release of iOS 6.1.2, which fixes an Exchange calendar bug that quickly drains the iOS device's battery life, is jailbreakable on the iPhone 5 and iPad Mini (Wi-Fi).

    The hacker also says that he is not yet able to test the rest of the iOS devices at this point in time, however since the iPhone 5 and iPad Mini are jailbreakable on iOS 6.1.2, it’s looking good for people with other iOS devices as well.

    With iOS 6.1.2 being jailbreakable, the evasi0n iOS 6 untethered jailbreak tool will likely be updated to support the software update just like it was for iOS 6.1.1 on the iPhone 4S.

    As the hackers release more information, we will continue to keep you updated.

    I think it may be good that apple has had other issues. Gives them less time to plug for jailbreak.

    So if i update the evasion package in cydia i can update to 6.1.1 ( or later)without having to rejailbreak or reinstall my tweaks etc? Just wondering.

    Or will i have to do the initial process again?

    No. You would have to restore to 6.1.2, then rejailbreak once they update evasi0n and then reinstall all your cydia stuff.

    Exactly. Screw apple being so strict with their trash phones. Let people do what they want to make them useful. That's the main reason smart people buy iPhones.

    Ya, unless you have the exchange bug there is no reason to update.

    I have two Exchange email accounts - and this certainly explains a lot. I will indeed re-jailbreak. PKGBackup will get me all my Cydia stuff back AND my App data. It'll be worth it for me.
    Here to help if I can. If I can't I know someone who can!

    Ewee, exchange bug! Sounds bad. I hope I don't catch it

    I have 1 exchange account and it seems to be ok. What am I looking for?

    I have one exchange account. I don't use calendar with it though so the bug doesn't affect me. I may just update cause I am OCD about being on the latest firmware lol.

    Probably a dumb question....but if ppl update to the latest OS (6.1.2) will all Cydia apps still work? Or will Authors have to update to be compatible?

    lol, it's bad with me. I sometimes do it even if I know there will be no jailbreak anytime soon. I have a problem I think

    I would say most likely all the cydia apps that work on 6.1 will work with 6.1.2 seeing as it is just a very minor bug fix update.

    That's what the bug seems to be from what I have read. I have never used calendar with my exchange accounts though so have never had the bug.

    I would wait to see if the 6.1.3 will still be jailbreakable. This build from what I read does not fix the pass code lock bug so they still have to push that update out. Might as well just stay on your current firmware until other issues are resolved. But that's just me.

    My two accounts rely heavily on Calendars for my job. And I've been having to nearly cripple my phone to get thru the day with battery life. It's been getting worse. I drained from 100% to 27% by 2PM today with moderate to heavy use. It's gotten worse recently. I definitely have the bug. Can't test by turning it off since Exchange calendars are central to my job.
    Here to help if I can. If I can't I know someone who can!
