iOS 6.1.3 Update Disable iPhone Evasi0n Jailbreak!

By  | 

The iOS 6.1.3 update which is about to be revealed will put paid to the new versions of the jailbreak by Evasi0n.

Forbes have said that one of the team members of evad3rs, David Wang, who is better known as PlanetBeing, has been testing the patch and revealed that one of five exploits that were used for the jailbreak has been repaired. This was a flaw in the time zone settings of the OS. It is thought that the beta will be the end of the evasi0n hack when the update has been released to users. He has been continuing to explore the patch to find out if other vulnerabilities have been fixed. 7 million people downloaded the jailbreak in four days of it being released. Compared to some other jailbreaks in the past, Apple have been slow to patch the bugs that have made the jailbreak possible.

Apple pushed out the update to iOS 6.1.2 six days again and there was no fix for the jailbreak. Forbes said that it had taken Apple nine days to fix the jailbreak tool for the Apple iPhone 4, jailbreak 3.0.

Wang said that the update to iOS 6.1.3 could take around one month to be released and at the same time he said that evad3rs found more bugs in the OS and these could lead to jailbreaks in the future.

When iOS 6.1.3 is revealed it will bring a fix for Maps in Japan, and a fix for the bug which affects the passcode, which was found in iOS 6.1.
