    Default Winocm: iOS 6.1.3/6.1.4 Jailbreak Should Drop Before 2014


    While the evad3rs are working hard at trying to jailbreak iOS 7, other hackers are working on a jailbreak for iOS 6.1.3 and iOS 6.1.4 – these are the most recent releases of iOS 6 that many people are stuck on after updating from iOS 6.0-6.1.2 (the latest jailbreakable firmwares).

    iOS hacker winocm, one of the minds behind the jailbreak for iOS 6.1.3 and iOS 6.1.4, showed us video evidence of his jailbreak running untethered on an iPhone 5 running iOS 6.1.4 just last month. With obvious progress being made, many are wondering when a time will come when they can finally jailbreak their iOS 6 devices again.

    On Monday, winocm Tweeted saying that he believes a definite ETA for his jailbreak will be before 2014, or within the next couple of months. While this isn't an exact date, it is as least better than nothing. He also notes that it was very helpful of everyone that dumped iPad kernels, as it helped him a lot. He asks that everyone waiting for the jailbreak simply remains patient as they continue to work hard on completing the project.

    As we’re more than familiar with, hackers put a lot of time and effort into making jailbreaks as stable as possible and ensuring that they work with as many devices as possible. An application interface also has to be built so that regular users can jailbreak their devices with ease. This work takes a while, and does require patience.

    While a lot of people continue to question the reasoning behind a jailbreak for iOS 6.1.3 and iOS 6.1.4 since iOS 7 is now available, it should be noted that the exploits being used in this jailbreak are no longer present in iOS 7 and therefore being used on the older firmware is not wasting them. There are also a number of people who have no interest in upgrading to iOS 7, and are stuck on the latest iOS 6 firmware with no jailbreak.

    We will continue to keep you updated on the progress of this jailbreak as more information surfaces.

    The point is that not everyone wants to bump up to iOS 7. Being that evaders are working on it I'm glad that someone is tackling iOS 6
    If it aint broke... you aint try'en hard enough

    Oh my goodness...
    I still can't believe an article was written about @winocm being facetious. He was saying that the jailbreak will be out before 2014 as a joke to everyone asking about ETA. This was taken way too literal....

    We already know it'll be out before 2014; they're already working on the details for finishing it up. I'm sorry but this article is pointless.

    BTW, I'm not tryin to be Negative-Nancy over here, just pointing out the truth!

    That's nice for people who still somehow care for 6. I've been on 7 since June and don't regret a thing. Don't really see why not to update.

    Some ppl just don't get it. It's a choice u guys know right? Evaders are doing the 7X jailbreak. This 6.1.3/6.1.4 JB is filling a void where a lot users (myself) included dont see any point in updating to 7X. Had it as a beta on my jailed 5. Thought it was absolutely crap, sold it & still think its crap! So I got another i5 on 6.1 & staying on that Jailbroken.

    Give it a rest on Winocm he's doing his own thing & instead of ridiculing him for working on an older firmware JB it's still an impressive feat in itself. At the end of the day he can do whatever the hell he likes whether u like it or not!

    Kudos again to Winocm & iH8sn0w for giving some of the iCommunity chance to JB on a later version of iOS6

    It's not all about YOU!

    Outside of all the bugs...ppl still want to be jailbroken.

    I'm glad that someone is still thinking about iOS 6!

    I for one am very very pleased that an iOS 6.1.3 jailbreak is in the works. I have no interest in updating to iOS 7. Honestly I think it's extremely ugly. It looks like a women/child designed it(not that there's anything wrong with that...just as a man, it does not look appealing to me at all). Not into to the bright and girly looking UI. Plus, once the untethered 6.1.3/4 jailbreak comes out, like basically every other jailbreak before, I will be able to have everything the latest iOS provides anyway due to the functionality a jailbreak provides. I have a setup on my phone that I love and have been use too, and I know going with the iOS 7 jailbreak would leave some of my most prized (and paid for) tweaks useless on the latest iOS (there's still tweaks I paid for, for iOS 5 that have not been updated for iOS 6, and I'm not about to make that list even longer by updating to iOS 7). I have a feeling it's going to be a very long time before all my preferred tweaks are compatible with iOS 7(if at all), so I'm most likely gonna be staying on iOS 6.1.3 for a very long time. And hopefully there will be a tweak/theme that will bring back the original iOS UI (or at-least a UI that is far less feminine looking:/) it's not that I hate change...I just happen to hate this new UI Apple made particularly. Honestly....if Jobs was still around, I don't think he would have approve of the new UI.lol. But hey that's just my 2 cents.
