Eversince iOS 6.0.1 was released, there was a heavy rush of downloads of the latest apple iOS even though the jailbreak wasn’t available. But with grace of time, people again leaned towards jailbreak but unfortunately it wasn’t available.
Bad news for iOS 6.0.1 lovers that jailbreak is probably not going to be available for them but will directly be available for next most promising iOS 6.1. Currently, iOS 6.1 is available in Beta Version. It is expected to available full packed final release in next few days.
Evad3rs, the individual members of the newly formed jailbreak team have been urging Apple to quickly release iOS 6.1 so that they can apply the final touches to the untethered jailbreak, but apple released another beta version instead. A minor set-back for most, but the ever-present silver lining is that those who have access to the fifth beta of iOS 6.1 can also enjoy a tethered jailbreak on older A4 devices through the use of Redsn0w.
A tethered version of jailbreak has been completed but that does not sound too cool for anyone as it is worth to wait a bit for untethered version of jailbreak.
What Is Tethered Jailbreak?
This means that whenever the device is rebooted or entirely powered down and back on it will need to be connected to the computer and injected with the exploit once again through Redsn0w to ensure that it is in a jailbroken state.
MuscleNerd too contributed on the jailbreak, as he has done previously with other jailbreaks. When asked about the future of jailbreaking and the jailbreak for the next version of iOS, Pod2g gave some good news. He stated that while working on the current jailbreak, he found some more exploits that could be used with the next version of iOS, probably iOS 7.
It’s only a matter of time before Apple releases iOS 6.1 to the public, which is when the Evad3rs will release the untethered jailbreak. Both the iPhone 4S and iPhone 5 on iOS 6/iOS 6.1 will be supported, so don’t you worry. Just be patient a little longer and pray that Apple doesn’t patch those exploits.
