Suarik Releases Cydia Substrate for Android without an iOS 6.1.3 Jailbreak – As the majority of our readers at Evasion Jailbreak are already aware, Apple effectively patched the Evasi0n UnTethered jailbreak when they released iOS 6.1.3 to the public. Unfortunately, newer devices that have upgraded to 6.1.3 (or even iOS 6.1.4 in the case of the iPhone 5) are stuck on the firmware without a jailbreak in sight until the days of iOS 7. Recently, in an almost taunting move, Jay Freeman (known online as Saurik) released Cydia Substrate and WinterBoard for Android devices. Meanwhile, those iDevices owner who mistakenly, or unknowingly, updated are left without a means to jailbreak 6.1.3 until either the evad3rs and/or p0sixninja release the next UnTethered jailbreak utility for iOS 7.
Jailbreak 6.1.3 iOS Semi UnTethered on iPhone 4, 3GS, iPod touch 4G with Redsn0w – Following Apple’s release of iOS 6.1.3 today, a popular jailbreak tutorial YouTuber named iCrackUriDevice published an updated semi UnTethered jailbreak guide for the new firmware using a simple RedSn0w workaround. Unfortunately, because the Untethered exploits employed by Evasion are patched in iOS 6.1.3, this jailbreak remains exclusive to A4-powered devices and is Tethered by default, which we’ll explain later. If you own a newer iDevice on a previous version of iOS 6, including 6.0.1, 6.0.2, 6.1, 6.1.1 and 6.1.2, we strongly advise following our evasi0n jailbreak tutorial, as it includes untethered support for all devices.
As mentioned above, the Redsn0w Jailbreak is compatible with, and can jailbreak, the following iPhone and iPod touch models running iOS 6.1.3.
- iPhone 4 (both GSM and CMDA models)
- iPhone 3GS
- iPod touch 4th generation
While the following newer iDevices are incompatible with this 6.1.3 jailbreak, they are still able to be jailbroken on all previous versions of iOS 6, even 6.1.2, using evasion.
- iPhone 5
- iPhone 4S
- iPad mini
- iPod touch 5th generation
- iPad 4 powered by Apple’s A6X chip and Retina display
- iPad 3
- iPad 2
Furthermore, even though it’s possible to use redsn0w on 6.1.3, iPhone and iPod touch owners will only be able to jailbreak using what’s referred to as a “Tethered Jailbreak”. Consequently, devices jailbroken using this method will require Redsnow to boot into their fully jailbroken state every time they power off. However, it is possible to install what’s known as a semi Tethered or a Semi UnTethered jailbreak on iOS 6.1.3 after completing this tutorial. This will allow the iPhone or iPod touch to reboot without the assistance of a computer with limited functionality. If you’ve previously jailbroken using a tethered version of redsn0w, jailbreaking 6.1.3 should be easy for you. Read more…
iOS 6.1.4 Explained: Jailbreaking, Unlocking, iOS 7 And More – Earlier this month, on May 2nd, Apple released iOS 6.1.4 to the public. However, instead of issuing the firmware to all current iDevices as one would expect Apple to do, the latest firmware is exclusive to the iPhone 5. iOS 6.1.3 is the latest iteration of iOS 6 for the iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad 4, iPad 3, iPad 2, iPad mini, iPod touch 5G and the iPod touch 4G. Since 6.1.4′s release, the staff at Evasion Jailbreak has received a large number of questions pertaining to whether the firmware can be jailbroken and if 6.1.3 is jailbreakable on other devices. In this article, we aim to answer a number of commonly asked questions pertaining to iOS 6.1.4. Read more…
UnTethered iOS Jailbreak 6.1.3 iPhone 5, iPad 4 Information – Following both Apple’s release of iOS 6.1.3 and our in-depth jailbreak tutorial for the new firmware, a large number of avid Evasion Jailbreak readers have inquired as to the status of an UnTethered jailbreak for iOS 6.1.3, how the current Tethered and semi Untethered jailbreak functions and whether or not it’s possible to downgrade from 6.1.3 to 6.1.2. While we’ll answer all of the most commonly asked questions we receive in this Jailbreak 6.1.3 Q&A article, iCrackUriDevice (a popular iOS and jailbreak tutorial YouTuber) has recently published an in-depth video explaining much of what is detailed in this post. If you’d prefer a vocal explanation to the iOS 6.1.3 jailbreak questions previously mentioned, be sure to watch the video embedded below.
Is it possible to Jailbreak 6.1.3?
Yes, it’s possible to jailbreak an iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS or a 4th generation iPod touch on iOS 6.1.3 using Redsn0w. Unfortunately, because Apple patched a number of the exploits utilized by the evasi0n jailbreak utility, it’s not currently possible to jailbreak the iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPad 4, iPad 3, iPad 2, iPad mini or the 5the generation iPod touch on 6.1.3.
Redsn0w utilizes Geohot’s limera1n exploit form 2010, which is a hardware based vulnerability that cannot be patched by Apple for the devices it supports simply by releasing a new firmware. That’s why older devices are supported by the 6.1.3 jailbreak, while newer devices cannot make use of redsn0w to accomplish the same task. Furthermore, older iDevices jailbroken on 6.1.3 will be jailbroken by what’s referred to as a Tethered jailbreak, meaning users will be required to reboot their device using redsn0w every time it powers off. However, that being said, it’s possible to install a Semi Tethered or a Semi UnTethered jailbreak following the Tethered Redsn0w jailbreak. Read more…
iOS 6.1.4 Untethered Jailbreak 6.1.3 Evasion Status, Upcoming iOS 7 Solution – Since Apple’s iPhone 5-exclusive release of iOS 6.1.4 last week on May 2nd, the staff of Evasion Jailbreak have been flooded with a number of questions related to iOS 6.1.4, the new firmware’s jailbreak status and whether there’s a 6.1.3 untethered jailbreak, which is currently the latest version of iOS for all devices, excluding the iPhone 5. In today’s post, we’ll reference past reports from Evasi0n that contain the latest and most recent jailbreak information for all devices. However, before we begin, it’s crucial to understand one thing: we are in no way associated with the developers and hackers who create and release jailbreak utilities. We are Evasion iOS Jailbreak 6.1.3 Tutorials: a blog dedicated to providing its readers with the best tutorials and the most accurate jailbreak-related information available on the web. Read more…
Jailbreak iOS 6.1.2 UnTethered on iPhone 5, 4S, iPad 4, iPod touch 5G And All iDevices with Evasi0n [Video Tutorial]
Jailbreak 6.1.2 iOS 6.1 UnTethered on iPhone 5, 4S, iPad mini, 4, iPod touch 5G, all iDevices with Evasi0n - Shortly after Apple released iOS 6.1.2 to the public to correct minor bugs, the Evad3rs (the dev team behind the untethered evasion jailbreak) updated their Evasi0n utility to v1.4. Thankfully, because the Untethered exploits utilized by evasi0n were left un-patched, users can now jailbreak Apple’s latest 6.1.2 firmware using Evasi0n version 1.4 or 1.5. The new jailbreaking tool also supports 6.1.2 and older versions of iOS alike, including 6.0, 6.0.1, 6.0.2, 6.1 and 6.1.1. All iOS devices that can upgrade to iOS 6.1.2 can now be jailbroken, with the exception of the Apple TV 3, which, as of now, is unable to be successfully jailbroken due to a lack of exploitable jailbreak vulnerabilities.
As mentioned above, the Evasi0n Jailbreak is compatible with and can successfully jailbreak the following iPhone, iPad and iPod touch models running 6.1.2, 6.1.1, 6.1, 6.0.2, 6.0.1 or iOS 6 (not 6.1.3). Read more…
iOS 7 Web Traffic Increases and Untethered Jailbreak Details – With Apple scheduled to unveil iOS 7 to the public next month during the company’s annual World Wide Developers Conference, more commonly referred to as WWDC, the anticipation amongst Apple and jailbreak fanatics couldn’t be higher. As the majority of readers here on Evasion Jailbreak are already aware, in one swift move on March 19th, Apple effectively patched the iOS 6 through 6.1.2 evasi0n UnTethered jailbreak with the release of iOS 6.1.3. Since the firmware’s release, Apple has also issued iOS 6.1.4 exclusively to iPhone 5 owners, which is also currently unable to be jailbroken. Over the past weeks, we’ve written a number of articles detailing why the evad3rs aren’t developing an iOS 6.1.3 jailbreak, so if you missed them, we recommend taking a look at our jailbreak 6.1.3 archive prior to finishing this article.

Apple Releases iOS 6.1.4 for iPhone 5, Evasion Jailbreak 6.1.4 Warning – Today, in a rather peculiar update, Apple released iOS 6.1.4 to the public, which appears to be exclusive to the iPhone 5. Today’s iOS 6.1.4 firmware follows the release of Apple’s 6.1.3 update on March 19th that was issued to bring minor improvements and bug fixes to iOS. Unfortunately, like with iOS 6.1.3, today’s 6.1.4 release is unable to be jailbroken by evasi0n. Additionally, 6.1.4 is on the smaller side of firmware updates, weighing in at merely 11.5MB in size for Apple’s over the air (OTA) update feature on an iPhone 5 running 6.1.3.
Who Needs To Jailbreak iOS 6.1.3? Saurik “Jailbreaks” (Roots) Google Glass – Jailbreaking: the process of achieving root access on a device to install third-party software modifications that would otherwise be restricted. Typically, when individuals think of jailbreaking, they immediately assuming that the term is exclusive to iOS and Apple’s iPhone, iPad and iPod touch models, however that’s not the case. Furthermore, the term jailbreak extends far beyond iOS 6 and Apple’s latest 6.1.3 firmware, which we’ve discussed at length in the past few weeks on Evasion Jailbreak 6.1.3 Tutorials. If jailbreaking is simply defined as the process of achieving root access and “freeing” your device from restrictions and limitations, then “jailbreaking” can also be used as a synonym for rooting an Android device. So how about Google Glass? Where will the forthcoming device fall in the world of hacking and jailbreaking? Read more…
