iOS 6.1 Untethered Jailbreak Update For iPod Touch 5G & iPhone 5

By  | 

Owners of the Apple iPhone 5 along with the Apple iPod Touch 5G are waiting patiently for the release of the iOS 6 untethered jailbreak, and along with this they are showing interest in how to install Cydia. So where are we when it comes to the untethered jailbreak and can owners update to iOS 6.1?

The Evad3rs team are working on finding exploits, which are needed for them to jailbreak devices running on iOS6 and they have made a lot of progress. However for now the only jailbreak that is out is for the Apple iPhone 3GS and Apple iPod Touch 4G. If you want to jailbreak these devices they you can use Redsn0w. You install this onto your computer and then attach your handset and follow the instructions.

If you are an owner of the Apple iPhone 4S and you want the jailbreak, you will have to remain on the older iOS 5 for the time being. Owners of the Apple iPhone 5 just have to wait as for the time being there is no jailbreak. Absinthe was revealed in 2012 for the iPhone 4S and you can get an untethered jailbreak for the Apple iPhone 4S, 4 and the Apple iPod Touch 4G running on the older OS. However right now you cannot get a public release of an untethered jailbreak for iOS6 or the Apple iPhone 5 or Apple iPod Touch 5G.

Apple has released iOS 6.1 and the benefit of updating is that it fixes some bugs. While it has been said that jailbreaking iOS6 is hard, Evad3rs are confident that they will be able to release the jailbreak for iOS very soon. When they reveal it, the jailbreak should work on iOS 6 along with iOS6.1. Therefore if you want to go ahead and update to iOS6.1 then go ahead.

Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Nintendo Wii, PC, iPhone and Android games keep Berke busy at work all day. Honestly though we’re not sure why we’re paying him as it should be the other way around.
