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).

Evasi0n v1.4, like past versions of the utility, features an easy-to-understand GUI or graphical user interface, which equips even novice jailbreakers with a powerful, yet simple method for administering the code required to complete an untethered jailbreak for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch models on 6.1.2. Fortunately, the instructions for jailbreaking using Evasi0n are virtually identical to our previous tutorials. If you’ve already jailbroken using our jailbreak iOS 6.1 tutorial, jailbreaking 6.1.2 should be a breeze.
Important Jailbreak Prerequisite:
Before proceeding, if you wish to, not only speed up the process, but also eliminate the possibility of encountering any errors, you should follow the simple 6.1.2 restore procedure listed below. Additionally, if you plan on updating to 6.1.2 from a previous firmware, or if you updated using Apple’s over the air (OTA) update feature, you must complete the following before jailbreaking.
- Initiate a complete iOS 6 backup of your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad via iTunes.
- Restore to Apple’s latest 6.1.2 firmware and continue – refrain from restoring your data until you’ve completed the evasi0n jailbreak.
Additionally, if your device has a lock screen passcode set, ensure that it’s been disabled before following the instructions listed below.
How to Jailbreak iOS 6.1.2 UnTethered Using Evasi0n
Step 1: Download Evasi0n from our download page, which is linked below, to ensure that you have a completely authentic version of evasion.
Step 2: Once Evasi0n has been successfully downloaded, if you’re on Windows, extract the contents using the same method you would for any regular zip file. Mac users needn’t worry, as OS X automatically preforms this step – we strongly advice that you place the files on your desk top for convenience and ease of use.
Step 3: To continue through the jailbreak process, connect your iDevice to a computer via an official 30-pin or Lightning Apple USB cable.
Step 4: Run Evasi0n and simply click the Jailbreak button to the far right of the utility, as pictured below, and wait for the process to complete. Remember, it’s crucial to abstain from interacting with your device’s buttons and/or removing the USB cable, as both will interfere with the jailbreak.
Step 5: When prompted by evasi0n, slide to unlock your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch and tap the Jailbreak icon once and let the jailbreak completely finish before unplugging your device.
Step 6: After a series of reboots, your device should return to its familiar unlock screen and Cydia will be placed in a blank springboard space. Congratulations, you’ve successfully jailbroken untethered on iOS 6.1.2 and you’ll be able to download and install your favorite packages, tweaks and themes from Cydia. Fortunately, if you don’t know which Cydia tweaks to get, we’ve complied a list of 25 awesome Cydia packages we recommend.
