This week has been an excited one with regards the iOS 6.0 or 6.1 Untethered jailbreak news. On 20th January we came to know from a tweet from pod2g that a new vulnerability has been discovered and good progress have been done in jailbreaking the iOS 6.1 or 6.0.2 etc. Now just hours ago planetbeing has made me and many of us more excited saying “Tons of progress the last few days. I think the future is looking bright for jailbreaking. ” . I am also like you desperately waiting to get my iPhone 5 Jailbreak as soon as possible.
If we link all the tweets which we are reading through different hackers/developers it is now becoming more clear that they have achieved something basic which is necessary to released the untethered iOS 6.0 or 6.1 jailbreak for public use and now they are working together as a team. Have a look on below tweet by pod2g on 21 January 2013.
Based upon all these developments we hope that now it is matter of few days and we night be hearing about some good news with our jailbroken A6 devices including iPhone 5, iPod Touch 5G, iPad Mini and iPad 4 etc.

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.

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.

Jailbreak iPod Touch 4G iOS 6.0.1 Using RedSn0w 0.9.15b3
If you are willing to jailbreak your ipod touch that has been already updated to the iOS 6.0.1 you can do it using the most famous and reliable iOS jailbreak tool called redsnow. At the moment the only available jailbreak for iOS 6.0.1 on iPod Touch is by iphone dev team in the form of redn0w 0.9.15b3.
Update: You should use Evasi0n iOS 6 Jailbreak to jailbreak iPod Touch 4G which is now latest and more reliable jailbreak solution, Click Here to download evasi0n and jailbreak iPod Touch.
The 6.0.1 jailbreak is stable and working properly without any bugs and errors once installed correctly on your iPod touch. The tutorial to jailbreak ipod touch 4g mentioned below is given step wise and is tested before posting on my site there are minor issues while jailbreaking is in progress which I have addressed at the step it may occur. Many people faced the error of “missing keys.plist” which can be avoided easily by first reading carefully complete jailbreak procedure and watching the video given at the end of this post and then you start your jailbreak process.
In addition to jailbreak ipod touch 4g, you can also jailbreak iphone 4, and iphone 3gs jailbreak using the same 6.0.1 jailbreak procedure, and if you have 3gs old boot-rom your 3gs jailbreak will be untethered 6.0.1 jailbreak.
Important Before You Jailbreak iPod Touch 4G
There are few things which every new jailbreaker must understand i.e. your iPod touch may become unresponsive if the proper jailbreak is failed and you may need to restore it using the iTunes therefore you must take a backup before starting the process to jailbreak ipod touch.
Secondly it is not an untethered ios 6.0.1 jailbreak which means whenever you are required to reboot your iPod Touch you have to do it using the redsn0w, yes you will need a computer each time you need to reboot your iPod Touch. Some time a jailbreak app installation may requires reboot in that case you should read the message carefully before tapping Yes or Reboot. If respring is required it does not matter and not requires tethered booting of your ipod touch 4g.
How To Jailbreak iPod Touch 4G
Jailbreak iPod Touch 4g Step 1:
Download the ipsw firmware file for your ipod touch for iOS 6.0 remember even you are jailbreaking 6.0.1 you will need firmware of 6.0 to jailbreak ipod touch using the Limera1n exploit. Click Here To Download iOS 6.0.
Jailbreak iPod Touch 4g Step 2:
Download Redsn0w 0.9.15b3 or b2 both will work to jailbreak your device. Click the download links for WinMac. After the file is downloaded extract it preferably on desktop so you can access easily. Open the redsnow folder and run the redsn0w.exe file: in Windows right click and select Run As Administrator and in OS X Mountain Lion, use Ctrl-Click => Open.
Jailbreak iPod Touch 4g Step 3:
Connect your ipod touch to your computer. It is recommended to put your ipod touch in DFU mode at this stage just do as I have mentioned: turn off your ipod and now press and hold both power and Home buttons for 10 seconds and after 10 seconds while holding Home button release power button and keep pressing Home button for further 10 seconds and release it.
Your ipod screen should remain blank at the end and when you will open Redsn0w the status of your ipod touch will be shown in the middle bottom of redsnow window i,e Detected device ipod (DFU Mode). Or you can perform this step later when redsnow will ask you to do these steps. Some people are confused at this stage and their ipod touch either becomes ON or goes in recovery mode, don’t worry just press and hold both buttons for a while and your device will reboot and you can try again.
Jailbreak iPod Touch 4g Step 4:
After the redsn0w program runs you will see the redsnow main window which is showing two options i.e. Jailbreak & Extras. Click Extras => Select IPSW the program will ask you to select ipsw file this is the ios 6.0 firmware file which you downloaded in first step. Browse your computer and locate and select to open. Nothing will happen at this stage only you will see a message that successfully identified with the build number in the message body. Click back to go to main RedSn0w 0.9.15b3 window again.
Jailbreak iPod Touch 4g Step 5
Click Jailbreak to go to next screen, you will see a quick message window saying preparing jailbreak data , patching kernel and then option to select from three options. Just select Install Cydia which is already selected so just click next. If you have already put your ipod touch in DFU mode this step will complete smoothly and install the jailbreak and Cydia for 6.0.1, otherwise you will have to put your device in DFU mode.
You will see some messages on redsnow screen with progress bar followed by some activity on your ipod screen (first matrix text moving up and then RedSn0w icon showing progress for Moving applications) after which the device will reboot at the end.
After reboot if you check the springboard you will not find the Cydia installed this is because you have one step to complete the jailbreak and Cydia installation. The final step is boot tethered your ipod touch. If this was an untethered 6.0.1 jailbreak you would not need this extra step and jailbreak was complete.
Jailbreak iPod Touch 4g Final Step – Boot Tethered
Just complete the steps 3 & 4 and after selecting the 6.0 ipsw file go to Extras => Just Boot, if not in DFU put in DFU and wait until the screen activity is complete and your device reboots. At this stage one may ask why we are selecting 6.0 firmware again but this is required otherwise you will face the error of “missing keys.plist”.
After you have completed the process, you ipod touch 4g is now boot tethered and you will see Cydia installed on your iPod touch 4g. Enjoy.
