Semaphore has announced an update to TinyUmbrella utility that brings support for new firmwares iOS 6 and iOS 6.0.1, as well support as new devices - iPad mini and the iPad 4. With TU users can save their SHSH keys for firmwares. Later these SHSH keys could be used for iOS downgrades.
I've updated TU to support iOS 6 and 6.0.1. The new iPad mini and iPad 4 are also supported as well as the new iphone 4 stealth revision.
Sorry for the delay folks. I'm still working on some pretty dang well needed changes to TU. The wait will be worth it...
MuscleNerd has announced that the jailbreak developed by chpwn and phoenixdev works on the iPad mini.
the "failbreak" from @phoenixdev @chpwn in action on an iPad-mini http://twitpic.com/ba1ega (why failbreak? see @planetbeing's timeline)
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.
The iPhone Dev-Team has announced an updated version of RedSn0w and an upcoming update to UltraSn0w for iOS 6 compatibility.
Version 0.9.15b3 fixes the redsn0w “error 2601” that Windows users were seeing using the Restore button. It also fixes a related Windows iTunes error 14 for stitched files. Note that if you have a baseband, you should probably avoid stitching and simply use redsn0w’s native Restore (not iTunes).
Those lucky recipients of new iPad minis and iPad4s on Friday can use this redsn0w to save your 6.0 blobs off to Cydia. First connect your new device and turn it on, then use redsn0w’s Extras->SHSH Blobs->New and point it at the 6.0 IPSW.
Expect an ultrasn0w compatibility update for iOS 6.0 by Friday (mostly useful for 3GS old-bootrom users who are currently enjoying the untethered 6.0 jailbreak!). Same baseband support as with 5.x.
Thanks to @iamgolfy for helping test the 2601 Windows fix!
You can download the latest version of RedSn0w from here.
The discussion about the new iPad mini has mainly revolved around its display, which is said to account for 43% of the total cost of manufacturing. The display is reportedly based on a new "GF2" technology which allows for thinner display, but it lacks Retina-level resolution to which users have become accustomed in the new iPad and iPhone.
