Recently the hacker tweeted that the 'the next jailbreak might be created entirely by me' saying that he had discovered several exploits needed for the new jailbreak.
In an interview to iDesignTimes p0sixninja commented that he will definitely not release jailbreak for iOS 6.x.
P0sixninja says that he has found the exploits necessary to release a new jailbreak. He does not mention it, but it looks like this jailbreak will be for the latest iOS 6.1.3. In the past the hacker contributed to various jailbreak releases in the past including: GreenPois0n, Cdev Reporter, Absinthe, etc.
Well, so far it looks like the next jailbreak might be created entirely by me.
It looks like the vulnerabilities used for the evasi0n untethered jailbreak will be fixed in an upcoming iOS 6.1.3 update. PlanetBeing, one of the founding members of the evad3rs team that reports that Apple has patched at least one of the five exploits that evasi0n uses to accomplish the jailbreak.
"If one of the vulnerabilities doesn’t work, evasi0n doesn’t work," he says. "We could replace that part with a different vulnerability, but [Apple] will probably fix most if not all of the bugs we’ve used when 6.1.3 comes out."
Our advice? Just enjoy the jailbreak, back up your SHSH blobs in case a downgrade solution becomes available. And obviously if you like your jailbreak, stay away from iOS 6.1.3 once it is released.
In January, a number of Apple employees’ Mac devices have been hacked after visiting a popular iPhoneDevSDK forum. The employees from Facebook and, probably, dozens of other companies have also been attacked by the hacker. The site's owner, Ian Sefferman, has provided some limited details about what happened in his blog.
@MuscleNerd is every other device supported?
@unicornhacker yes, every other 6.1 device variation will be supported. All TWENTY-TWO of them (omg!). Plus atv2 if it's out in time.
Unfortunately, with the exploit that's being used, the Apple TV 3 will not be supported.
@MuscleNerd @evad3rs_jb So those of us with atv3 still have to wait for a bootrom
@arovik not necessarily. Although atv3 uses far fewer services that can be tampered with, it's not isolated. But it can't use this next JB
iOS 6.1 appears to be vulnerable to the exploits we are planning on using.
Apple's anti-malware tool is able to enforce minimum version numbers for such plug-ins as Flash and Java, and the company simply updated its blacklist to require that computers be running higher version of Java 7 than was publicly available.
iH8Sn0w released Sn0wBreeze 2.9.7 that brings support for tethered jailbreak of iOS 6.0.1. New version supports iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 4G. It does not work with A5/A6 devices, like iPad 2, iPad 3, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, etc.
Sn0wbreeze can be used to create a custom firmware with jailbreak and preserve iPhone modem (baseband) version for unlock.
You can find the release notes below. You can download the latest version of Sn0wBreeze from
Chpwn has posted an image showing Cydia running on a jailbroken iPad 4.
Last month, chpwn revealed that his jailbreak would be reserved as a failbreak. That means it will be limited to jailbreak developers and won't be released to the public. This is being done to make it easier to discover new exploits (which will be used for public release) in the future.

Last month, chpwn revealed that his jailbreak for the iPhone 5 would be reserved as a failbreak. That means it will be limited to jailbreak developers and won't be released to the public. This is being done to make it easier to discover new exploits (which will be used for public release) in the future.
Researchers announced on this Monday that they had discovered vulnerability in Java 7. Hackers can use the bug to compromise any system through a web browser running the latest Java software, reports Tod Beardsley, engineering manager for open-source testing framework.

Take a look at the video from RedmondPie of the Chronic Dev-Team announcing Absinthe 2.0 at HITB:
For those who didn't follow the conference, or get caught up in the excitement that surrounded it, the 'one more thing' bomb-shell was related to the fact that the Dream Team used their presence at the security event to officially introduce the world to the v2.0 release of their one-click Absinthe jailbreak solution. After months of hard work and exploit finding, mixed with weeks of will-they-won't-they speculation, it turns out that they indeed did introduce us to Absinthe 2.0.
Our instructions how to jailbreak your device using Absinthe are available here.
