As you probably know, a few days ago iH8sn0w, winocm and SquiffyPwn have released an untethered jailbreak for smartphones and tablets running iOS 6.1.3 - 6.1.5 - p0sixspwn.

Evad3rs have recently released an updated version of their untether in Cydia that contains a bunch of improvements. The most important is probably a tweak that saurik requires to fix the problem with MobileSubstrate and make it fully functional.
Saurik has warned the iOS 7 users and jailbreakers not to install the unofficial MobileSubstrate patches that begin to appear on the Internet. The reason for such warning is quite simple - MobileSubstrate hasn’t yet been updated to work with Apple’s new operating system and that can lead to serious consequences.
Cydia has received a major redesign and improved compatibility for iOS 7.
The update comes via a new Cydia Installer package available today from the Changes tab in Cydia.
Saurik explains the release:
H8sn0w has announced the release of an untether package for the old devices running iOS 6.1.3 - 6.1.5. This includes iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, and iPod Touch 4G.
