Step-by-step Tutorial: How to Untether Jailbreak iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch Using Evasi0n (Windows) [iOS 6.0-6.1.2]
UPDATE: Apple released iOS 6.1.3, so you can NOT restore to earlier firmware (both original and custom), unless you have saved your SHSH keys. If you are on iOS 6.0-6.1.2 you can use evasi0n to jailbreak.
This is step-by-step instructions on how to perform untethered jailbreak of iOS 6.0-6.1.2 firmwares using Evasi0n for Windows.
This tutorial works for:
This tutorial is for Windows users. Mac OS X tutorial is available here.
Final count down toward tomorrow's release has begun!
The Evad3rs website indicates that current progress is 96%:
85%: First major round of testing concluded successfully on Windows and Mac. Come back soon!
The official evasi0n 6.1 jailbreak: http://evasi0n.com -- Check regularly for updates! #evasi0n
The site currently indicates the following status:
In terms of release date, we're aiming for approximately a week out, but it's possible it will come sooner or later than that.
Important: do not update to iOS 6.1 if you need carrier unlock.
We have downloaded iOS 6.1 for our iPhone 4:
@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
Awesome...as @EvilPenguin_ pointed out, we're seeing the final ATV2 6.1 today too. So ATV2 will be covered by the JB (not ATV3 tho).
Unfortunately, as mentioned earlier the Apple TV 3G will not be supported by this jailbreak.
If you people plan to upgrade to iOS 6.1 please don't do an OTA upgrade. Please make a full restore using iTunes.
iOS 6.1 appears to be vulnerable to the exploits we are planning on using.
"For your information and this is important to me that everybody knows about it also, this jailbreak will be @planetbeing and @pimskeks. I arrived at the end, gave ideas that pushed them to their maximum, I kinda unblocked the situation, but it would certainly have happened without me helping."
Another progress on the public jailbreak is reported by hacker planetbeing recently. Planetbeing has given us hope that a public jailbreak is near with his latest tweet.
Tons of progress the last few days. I think the future is looking bright for jailbreaking.
So here’s something we haven’t heard in a while: good news on the jailbreak front. Pod2g and planetbeing have found two new vulnerabilities for future iOS 6 jailbreak. Unfortunately the initial code execution for a public jailbreak release is still missing.
Made some nice progress today with @pod2g. I think I'll try to reward myself with a nap.
pod2g: @planetbeing oh yeah! 2 new vulnerabilities in a day, chance was with us. But we still miss that initial code execution for a public jb :/
It's great that progress is being made. Hopefully, the two find that last piece of the puzzle and are able to release their jailbreak to rest of us.
