It looks like the vulnerabilities used for the evasi0nuntethered jailbreak will be fixed in an upcoming iOS 6.1.3 update. PlanetBeing, one of the founding members of the evad3rs team that reports that Apple has patched at least one of the five exploits that evasi0n uses to accomplish the jailbreak.
“If one of the vulnerabilities doesn’t work, evasi0n doesn’t work,” he says. “We could replace that part with a different vulnerability, but [Apple] will probably fix most if not all of the bugs we’ve used when 6.1.3 comes out.”
Our advice? Just enjoy the jailbreak, back up your SHSH blobs in case a downgrade solution becomes available. And obviously if you like your jailbreak, stay away from iOS 6.1.3 once it is released.
iH8Sn0w released Sn0wBreeze 2.9.10 that brings support for untethered jailbreak of iOS 6.1.2. New version supports iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 4G. It does not work with A5/A6 devices, like iPad 2, iPad 3, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, etc.
Sn0wbreeze can be used to create a custom firmware with jailbreak and preserve iPhone modem (baseband) version for unlock. It can also be used to upgrade iPhone 3GS modem version to 06.15.
You can find the release notes below. You can download the latest version of Sn0wBreeze from here.
The Evad3rs have released Evasi0n 1.3, an update to the jailbreak utility that brings support for the new iOS 6.1.1iPhone 4Sfirmware. Additionally, the team notes that OS X 10.5 should be fully supported now and the linux glibc requirement has been lowered to 2.3.
The Evad3rs Team have released an update to the Evasi0njailbreak utility. Evasi0n 1.2 fixes timezone issue in evasi0n binary if client fails to correct it and disables OTA updates, which are not good for jailbroken devices.
If you’re already jailbroken – there is no need to rejailbreak, just run Cydia and install updates there. There is nothing in evasi0n 1.2 that is not already in Cydia.
This is pretty interesting. Pod2g just announced that the new iOS 6.1.1 beta that Apple seeded to developers yesterday does not actually patch the exploits used in the latest jailbreak.
6.1.1 beta (10B311) does not fix the jailbreak. It’ll probably happen in a future revision. Don’t upgrade though, evasi0n won’t let you jb.
At least not yet anyway. Remember, this is just beta 1 of what will likely be 3 or 4 developer releases. But for the time being, pod2g says that 6.1.1 does not fix any of the jailbreak’s security holes.
