Jailbreak 6.1.3 UnTethered To Follow iOS 7 Jailbreak While the majority of readers at Jailbreak Evasi0n are already aware of the current jailbreak status, we’ve received a countless number of questions pertaining to a post-iOS 7 solution to jailbreak 6.1.3 for the devices that will regrettably become obsolete this fall. Before we propose our solution, for those of you who aren’t caught up, the latest public jailbreak utility (evasi0n) includes support for iOS 6.0 through 6.1.2. Unfortunately, when Apple released iOS 6.1.3, they effectively patched a number of key vulnerabilities that evasion exploited to achieve an Untethered jailbreak. Now, iOS devices that update to 6.1.3 (or even 6.1.4 in the case of the iPhone 5) are regrettably stuck on the latest firmware without a jailbreak in sight.
Once Apple releases iOS 7 to the general public, the company will stop supporting both the iPhone 3GS and the 4th generation iPod touch in the latest versions of iOS. Obviously, this causes an issue for the previously mentioned devices, as the next Untethered jailbreak utility will be released for iOS 7.
Our prediction is that, based on past events and earlier jailbreak tools, the next Untethered utility will include support for iOS 6.1.3 for both the iPhone 3GS and the iPod touch 4G, which will give the now-outdated devices a permanent UnTethered jailbreak.
