It is time to jailbreak your ipod touch so that you can enjoy the freedom of installing variety of apps, tweaks and themes by using the Cydia tool. Currently ipod touch can be jailbroken by using the evasi0n latest version which supports ios 6.0, 6.0.1, 6.0.2, 6.1, 6.1.2 for getting an untethered ios 6 jailbreak, but if you have upgraded to 6.1.3 then you are in trouble and you can not get a tool to JB right now.
So it is unfortunate for the people who have upgraded to 6.1.3 but if you have saved shsh blobs you can downgrade from 6.1.3 to 6.1.2 using sn0wbreeze software. Below I have given the free tutorial so that you can install Cydia on your ipod touch 4g or 5g. The same procedure can be used to jailbreak other idevices also i.e. iPhone 5, 4s, 4, 3gs and iPad 4, 3, 2.
How To Jailbreak iPod Touch 4g / 5g
We recommend to backup your ipod touch on your computer using the iTunes, just open iTunes and connect your device, in the left pan or on the top select your ipod and click backup from middle of the itunes window. Wait for backup to be saved on your computer.
Download free evasi0n ios 6 jailbrake tool from Here, and extract the zip file. Run the evasi0n.exe file as administrator.
Connect the ipod touch to the computer using the standard usb cable. Evasi0n will recognize the ipod touch model and will inform that the ipod touch is compatible with evasi0n for jail break.
Click the only available button on evasi0n screen i.e. Jailbreak and the process will start automatically. Wait 1-2 minutes and you will observe a message stating that unlock your ipod and tap a new icon. Just open the lockscreen and find and tap a new icon that is actually evasi0n icon and the caption is jailbreak. You only need to tap once and after that leave the device until it continues the process.
After 2-3 reboots your ipod touch will be ready and you can see Cydia icon on springboard. Thats all the ipod touch jailbreak on ios 6 has been completed.
What To Do After Jailbreaking iPod Touch
Just tap Cydia icon and select to use as user wait for few moments because at first run it takes some time to refresh the repositories and sources etc. Now you can search your favorite Cydia tweaks, apps and themes and install easily like you do in Apple app store.

As we already discussed in one of our previous post that evasi0n is at the moment only authentic tool to jailbreak iOS 6, 6.1 and 6.1.2 with minimum reported errors, after release of evasi0n 1.0 it was later updated to version 1.5 with in few days in order to fix some jailbreak errors and bug fixes etc. Now it has been also updated to a new version i.e. Evasi0n 1.5.1 for a smooth experience after you jailbreak iOS 6. Although this does not provide any major feature but definitely must be having something to add value to previous version. You can download Evasi0n 1.5.1 from our download page and if already jailbroken on iOS 6 with evasi0n no need to worry just keep using your previous version. For new jailbreakers it is recommended to use only latest version to jailbreak iOS 6 so that they don’t face any unexpected jailbreak error.

Evasi0n is the only authentic and free jailbreak tool available to jailbreak for ios 6.0, the most recent version is version 1.4 which is now covering all the reported jailbreak errors of which major were related to weather app not working and longer boot cycles, after jailbreaking for ios 6 on any idevices like iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch. Using the existing jailbreaking software i.e evasi0n that is provided and released by evad3rs, you can jailbreak iOS 6, iOS 6.0, iOS 6.0.1, iOS 6.1, iOS 6.1.1 and iOS 6.1.2 jailbreak.
The latest jailbreak ios 6 jailbreak software was downloaded almost on 14 million devices which is the huge number and shows the reliability and success of the current jailbreak on ios 6. The most important part of this version is that this is only untethered jailbreak of ios 6 and the second option is redsn0w o.9.15b3 version which is currently tethered jailbreak for the ios 6. Although you can also now jailbreak ios 6 using snowbreeze latest version that was also updated after release of current jailbreaking software.
Jailbreak iOS 6 On Previous Versions
If you are having other older versions of iOS installed on your device you can still jailbreak your devices but I recommend to upgrade to iOS 6 before you are willing to do the jailbreaking of your iPhone, iPad or iPod. But if you do not want to loose your previous installed apps etc you can use redsn0w jailbreak tool to jailbreak up to iOS 5.1.1 untethered which you can download from our jailbreak download page.
As I already mentioned if you are not having ios 6 you may need to upgrade to iOS 6.0 or any other variation, question comes that how do i get ios 6? The answer is simple download or upgrade your device by connecting to the computer and using iTunes latest version.
Note: Right now there is no chance of untethered/tethered jailbreak after iOS 6.1.2 therefore if you will find iOS 6.1.3 or iOS 6.2 don’t upgrade to these versions until you are sure that the jailbreak for 6.1.3 or jailbreak for 6.2 is available by authentic means.
- After your device is having iOS 6 or later version you only need to download latest version of evasi0n iOS 6 jailbreaking software which you can find on our iOS 6.0 jailbreak download page. Save and extract the downloaded file and just run the evasi0n.exe file to start jailbreaking iOS 6.
- Connect your device to computer and evasi0n will recognize and give message in its window that your device is matching the requirements to jailbreak with ios 6. Now click the Jailbreak button on evasi0n screen to start the process of iOS 6 jailbreaking.
- You will see some progress on Evasi0n screen and your device will also reboot, after a while you will observe the progress is stopped on Evasi0n on your computer and there is a new message that please unlock your idevice screen and tap a new Jailbreak icon. Just open your device screen and find new icon and tap it, this is one time activity to complete the iOS 6.0 jailbreaking process securely on your device.
- After this step you will see a lot of activity on both computer evasi0n screen and on your device screen, the device will reboot several times and al last you will see a final message on evasi0n screen that jailbreak on iOS 6 jailbreak is completed.
Starting Cydia After Jailbreak For iOS 6.0
Now you can simply open your device springboard and find a new icon called Cydia, just tap it and select to use as User, after a while the Cydia will be ready and now you can search Cydia iOS 6 apps like you do in normal app store, Cydia is an app store for jailbreak tweaks and apps which include free as well as paid apps. Most of apps are very cheap as compared to the value these are providing to us.
Cheers and enjoy your idevice jailbreak on iOS 6.

Visitors looking to jailbreak ios 6.0.1 on iphone 4s or iphone 5 untethered or tethered must be disappointed because still we are waiting for release of a legitimate and authentic iphone 5 jailbreak on iOS 6.0.1 or 6.0.2.
By following the below process you should be able to jailbreak iOS 6.0.2 on iPhone 4, iphone 3gs and iPod touch and if you have 3gs old bootrom then you are lucky your iphone 3gs ios 6.0.2 jailbreak is untethered.
If you are looking for untethered jailbreak for iphone 5, 4s, iPad 4,3,2 and iPod Touch 5g, then there is no good news and just yesterday i0n1c has just tweeted that Apple has put more strict measures on latest ios versions making iOS 6.1 untethered jailbreak more difficult.
If you have iOS 5.1.1 or older versions on your idevice including iphone 4s and iPad 3 you can jailbreak 5.1.1 untethered using the Absinthe or redsn0w jailbreak tool. Check our free jailbreak download and installation guides.
Download latest version of redsn0w i.e. 0.9.15b3 from our redsn0w download free page. Extract the file, by default the folder can be opened from downloads in my documents.
Download iOS 6.0 firmware for your device from this ios 6.0 download page.
Open the redsn0w.exe file and go to Extras => Select IPSW and browse to the ios 6.0 firmware file which we downloaded in previous step, select the file and go back to main redsnow page.
Now turn off your iphone and connect it to computer using the usb cable. On redsn0w main screen click Jailbreak and then click next the jailbreak program will require you to put iphone in dfu or direct firmware mode. You have to only follow the screen instructions and press the combination of buttons as mentioned and once the DFU mode is detected the jailbreak process will start automatically. You will also see some activity on your device and it will reboot after few minutes.
If you are jailbreaking iphone 3gs then it is complete now and you can start using Cydia 6.0.2 and download and install jailbreak apps and tweaks. If you are jailbreaking iphone 4 or iPod Touch 4g then you have to boot your idevice tethered using the redsn0w again.
Open redsnow go to => Extras => Select IPSW => Browse and select the iOS 6.0 ipsw file which we downloaded in the beginning of this tutorial. Go to main screen and click Extras => Boot Tethered. Again turn off your device and put in dfu mode when redsn0w asks. The device will reboot and you shall be able to use the Cydia on 6.0.2 or 6.1 now.
The 6.0.2 jailbreak process is completed but still this is tethered 6.0.2 jailbreak that means if you are restarting your device due to any reason and you still want to use Safari & Cydia you must boot tethered using computer as we mentioned above.

Jailbreak iOS 6.0.1 & 6.1 Update
First of all I would like to clear that there is no untethered or tethered jailbreak available for iPhone 5, iPad 4, iPad Mini and iPod Touch 5g because all these devices are coming with iOS 6 out of the box therefore no question for any jailbreak for A5 and above devices for ios 6.01 jailbreak or later versions which is till now iOS 6.1 beta 4.
iOS 6.0.1 Jailbreak For Pre A5 Devices including 6.0 and 6.1 Jailbreak
There is one tethered ios 6.0.1, 6.0 and 6.1 jailbreak available which is only compatible for iPhone 4, iPhone 3gs and iPod Touch 4G, which can be achieved through redsn0w 6.0.1 jailbreak tool version 0.9.15b3. Before doing the tethered jailbreak you also need to download the ipsw firmware file for ios 6.0 which is must for doing all the jailbreaks of ios 6.0 or later i.e. up to ios 6.1 beta 4 jailbreak. Since this is a tethered ios 6 so it requires tethered booting for Cydia 6.0.1 to work each time if you reboot your device due to any reason.
Jailbreak iOS 5.1.1 and earlier versions
If your device is having iOS 5.1.1 still and you have not updated then you are a lucky man really in the current scenario because most of our visitors have already updated their iOS through OTA update and now they are finding ways to degrade but there is no way if no one has saved the shsh blobs using Cydia or sn0wbreeze etc.
iOS 5.1.1 jailbreak is compatible with all devices upto iphone 4s and you can jailbreak iPhone 4s, 4, 3gs iPod Touch 4g/3g, iPad 1/2/3 untethered if they are having iOS 5.1.1 or earlier version except ios 5.1 becuase there is no 5.1 Jailbreak available. People having 5.1 should upgrade to 5.1.1 and then they will be able to get untethered jailbreak for their device using Absinthe and redsn0w jailbreak tools.
Complete iOS Jailbreak Tutorial List
There are many iPhone, iPad and iPod users who are still having older ios versions still running on their devices and they never felt the need to update. I suggest all to update to iOS 5.1.1 because the latest untethered jailbreak that was done by using the limera1n explot is very stable and it is perfect for all devices up to iPhone 4s. You can update your device firmware in iTunes using the Shift+Update button on your iTunes for restoring your device to iOS 5.1.1 firmware which you will need to download from our firmware download page before going to the iTunes.
Warning: If you click the update button in iTunes it will update to latest iOS 6.0.1 version, for which there is no untethered jailbreak.
Once you will click the Update button while pressing and holding the Shift button the iTunes will ask you to select the firmware for which you need to restore and at that time you will select the 5.1.1 firmware file which you must have downloaded before going to iTunes.
Ok now what if you don’t want to upgrade and want to keep sticking with your current iOS, no problem just check our complete list of iOS 6.0.1, 6.1, 5.1.1 and older version jailbreak tutorial list and select the jailbreak download option for your device and your version.
Just check out this jailbreak guides index and enjoy jailbreaking.

In response to the claim of dream jailbreak for an untethered 6.0.1 jailbreak many jailbreakers have given their comments that is it not possible to get 6.0.1 jailbroken by a single person and DeramJB has updated his wiste stating that the forthcoming 6.0.1 Dream Jailbreak will support iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPad (gen2 and beyond), iPad Mini, iPod Touch (gen4 and beyond) running iOS 6.0.1. Also he has talked about the video proof before release of the actual jailbreak on 22 December.
In my opinion we should welcome any claims like this and wait for the outcomes of the claim, 22 December is not away and we can encourage the Dream JB team to provide proofs and if this 6.0.1 untethered jailbreak is real and they put some price for it, the situation will become more suspected. Lets see what happens next. We shall keep you updated.
Update December 10, 2012 1:02 AM EST – Proof will be posted both here and on my Twitter account on Wednesday. As far as the video that will be uploaded, it will be a single-take shot of the entire jailbreak process, including a restart and usage of the device to prove it is untethered. It will be uploaded as raw video straight from my camera to YouTube. So no edits in any form. Thank you all for your patience and support. Also, with the extremely high volume of tweets and over 4500 emails, I will try to address the public as I can. I ask that you read the FAQ before contacting me by email. I will update the FAQ for you all tomorrow morning. I’ve also moved past website updates to the bottom of the page. Goodnight everyone!
When Apple had released iPhone 5 with the new iOS 6 version,for that time everybody is waiting for untethered jailbreak for iPhone 5. We know that there are many iPhone 5 users who are searching for untethered jailbreak of iOS 6. Therefore we give you a latest news that DreamJB is claiming that they will release untethered jailbreak of iOS 6 for iPhone 5. Keep in mind that this is a news from the DreamJB who is claiming that they have jailbroken iOS 6 for iPhone 5. May be it is fake news because we can not trust on it until DreamJB will release official release to the public.
It is our aim that we inform and update you about jailbreaking,may be it is another fake but if we didn’t give this news and it did turn out to be accurate we will have failed our readership. DreamJB claims that untethered jailbreaking for iPhone 5 will be released as early as December 22. DreamJB also claims that he is only one developer and he will release untethered jailbreaking on his own official website and also make twitter acount to communicate with jailbreaking community. Jailbreaking community had mentioned many times that there are many difficulties of this latest jailbreak therefore it is also difficult to believe that one man can resolve this problem but may be DreamJB claim is true and genuine. DreamJB is also claiming that untethered jailbreaking video will be available on youtube. In that video DreamJB will show clearly the tutorial of jailbreaking for iPhone 5. Once again we say that it is not our intention to get people’s hopes up for nothing it is our mission to give the latest information for those who didn’t hear the latest news. Lets see what will happen. We can hope that DreamJB will prove their ability and iPhone 5 users will jailbreak their device soon.

There is possibility that some of the people who don’t know much about the iOS jailbreaking and the jailbreak process, are loosing the hope for an untethered iOS 6.1 jailbreak for A4, A5 and A6 devices. It has been more than one and half month after the release of iPhone 5 and iOS 6.0 and also now there is iOS 6.1 beta in the scene but there is no confirmed news or even rumor that when we shall be able to get iOS 6.0 or 6.1 untethered jailbreak for all devices.
If you are the one who is loosing the hope about iOS 6 Untethered jailbreak then hold on and if you have some time watch below video. The jailbreak team is really working on untethered 6.0/6.1 jailbreak and we are very much sure that the result will come out soon. This video was recorded during the HITB conference in Malaysia. The event was live streamed but the recording was just posted on Youtube by Whispering Bell.
A special 1-hour LIVE STREAMED iOS / OS X panel discussion held on the afternoon of Day 2 at #HITB2012KUL featuring (L-R:) Mark Dowd (Azimuth Security), Cyril aka pod2g (Chronic Dev Team), L33tdawg (Founder/CEO of HITB and moderator for the panel), MuscleNerd (iPhone Dev Team) and David ‘planetbeing’ Wang (iPhone Dev Team)
If we watch the video by sparing the time we will be happy to know that our loving jailbreaker are working on iOS 6 jailbreak and they will be able to find a way for a public release of untethered A5 jailbreak. To summarize the video below points are sufficient to read if you are not interested to watch the video:
- MuscleNerd says that baseband hacking and software unlocks are virtually irrelevant nowadays because it’s gotten so easy for third-party vendors to add IMEI’s to Apple’s unlocked device database.
- Mark Dowd, security expert, says Apple has practically overhauled security in iOS 6, making it significantly harder to write kernel exploits for it compared to previous versions of the software.
- pod2g has been pretty busy with his day job, but has started looking at the iOS 6 jailbreak. He’s working on finding a userland patch, trying to find a vulnerability to trigger the code execution.
If you are having iPhone 4, 3gs and iPod Touch 4g you can jailbreak your device untethered and tethered i.e. until 5.1.1 the jailbreak is untethered and on iOS 6.0, 6.0.1 and 6.1 it is tethered.

If you have already updated to iOS 6.1 your iPhone 3gs you may be looking for 3gs jailbreak on iOS 6.1. If you are new to jailbreak community you must know that the existing iPhone 3GS Jailbreak for 6.1 and 6.0.1 is a tethered jailbreak. Tethered jailbreak requires that every time you need to reboot your iphone 3gs you must use a computer and reboot using the redsn0w jailbreak tool, which you will use for jailbreaking 3gs on 6.1.
This Jailbreak iOS 6.1 is also compatible with iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 4G, and if you have 3gs old bootrom device your 6.1 jailbreak will become untethered automatically. Below is the step wise tutorial on how to jailbreak iPhone 3gs on iOS 6.1 or 6.0.1.
Although it is safe to jailbreak but we strongly recommend that you backup your iPhone 3gs before starting the 3gs jailbreak process. Simply go to iTunes =>connect your device => Right click your device in iTunes left panle => Click Backup
How To Jailbreak iOS 6.1 on iPhone 3GS
- In order to perform the 3gs 6.1 jailbreak you have to use iOS 6.0 firmware file (don’t confuse with 6.0 we really need 6.0 firmware not 6.1 to jailbreak) which should be specific to your device. You can visit our iphone firmware download page and download the file. This is a lrge file approximately 800 mb and it will take much time depending on your internet speed.
- Now you need the actual jailbreak software which is redsn0w, download redSn0w 0.9.15B3 from our free jailbreak download page and extract the zip file.
- Turn off your mobile and connect to your computer. Run the redSn0w.exe file you will get the main redsnow screen.
- In the main redsn0w window go to Extras => Select IPSW redsnow will ask to select ipsw file browse to the file which you saved in step 1 and click Open.
- Now you have to go back to RedSn0w main window and click Jailbreak, on the next screen redsnow will ask you to put your iphone 3gs in DFU mode, just follow the instructions on the screen and on next screen click next when asked just ensure that Install Cydia is selected and click Next. The jailbreak installation will proceed and your device will reboot.
- Boot Tethered: This is the last and very important step because since now you have jailbroken your iphone 3gs but you will not see Cydia installed on your springboard. In the main redsn0w window click extras => Just Boot => put your device in DFU mode and let the process complete. After reboot your iphone 3gs is now ready to be used as a jailbroken on iOS 6.1 or 6.01.
iPhone 5 Jailbreak Status
Till now we are waiting for latest software to jailbreak iOS 6.1 which will be able to jailbreak all devices untethered including iphone 5 jailbreak. You can join our blog to get notified when the iphone 5 jailbreak will be available.

Sn0wbreeze is an alternatives jailbreak tool that you can use to jailbreak you device instead of using typical Redsn0w jailbreak tool. The snowbreeze jailbreak works in the same way only it is a little different in way of installation i.e as compared to Redsn0w that installs a payload on your device and snowbreeze constructs the custom ipsw while jailbreaking your device. The custom ipsw that is generated by jailbreaking using s0wbreeze can be used later for downgrading and restoring your device’s baseband.
The latest update was announced today by iH8Sn0w giving the sn0wbreeze 2.9.7 that is compatible to jailbreake iPhone 3GS and A4 devices on iOS 6.0.1.
If you want to jailbreak 6.0.1 using snowbreeze you can check my old tutorial on How To Jailbreak Using SnowBreeze, just follow the steps but use the latest version of snowbreeze.
What is New?
● Added 6.0 (10A403)/6.0.1 (10A523) support. (Only includes iPhone 3GS & A4 devices).
● The 6.0/6.0.1 is currently a tethered based jailbreak via iBooty (except for iPhone 3GS old bootrom users).
● SAM is built-in for iOS 6 hacktivations. (Hacktivated phones can reboot to a semi-tethered state after being activated [rather than just hang at the Apple Logo]). Kudos @sbingner!
● Use iFaith mode after selecting/downloading the appropriate IPSW for your device. You will then be prompted to browse for SHSH blobs for the IPSW you have selected.
● Remember to enter a PWNED DFU state with sn0wbreeze’s iREB button in the top bar of sn0wbreeze prior to (SHIFT + Restoring) the custom signed IPSW!
iREB & iOS 6:
Due to some changes in iOS 6, the current public standalone version of iREB will NOT enter a proper PWNED DFU state for restoring to custom iOS 6 IPSWs. An update for the standalone version should come sometime this week. In the meantime, use the iREB tab located in sn0wbreeze’s top status bar to enter a proper PWNED DFU state.
As stated many times in the past, sn0wbreeze cannot be updated to work on A5(X)/A6(X) devices until a low level exploit in DFU or iBoot is found and made public.
A5(X)/A6(X) Baseband Preservation/Hacktivation?
For those running A5(X)/A6(X) devices and need to preserve your baseband, there is nothing you can do at the moment. For those wanting to hacktivate, the only advice I can give is to buy the carrier’s SIM (the one its locked to obviously) on ebay. The SIM does not have to be active with the carrier to activate the phone.
● Windows 8 users currently need to use this workaround to run sn0wbreeze.
● iPad baseband will fail to flash on iOS 4.0 –> iOS 4.2.1 restores.
● iPod Touch 2G 4.x.x restores fail.
You can download Sn0wbreeze 2.9.7 from our free jailbreak download page.
