pod2g: Evad3rs not working on iOS 6.1.3 Jailbreak


Apple released the iOS 6.1.3 software update on March 19th. It fixed the Lock screen bug and brought improvements to Maps app for Japanese users.

Unfortunately from a jailbreaker point of view, it also killed the evasi0n jailbreak as Apple fixed 4 security flaws used by the evad3r to develop the jailbreak.

It is currently possible to only jailbreak iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and iPod touch 4G on iOS 6.1.3. If you accidentally upgraded to iOS 6.1.3 on the newer devices or just bought a device that comes pre-installed with iOS 6.1.3 and are hoping that evad3rs team release a jailbreak for it, then we’ve some bad news.

pod2g, a key member of the evad3rs team has just tweeted that they’re not working on a jailbreak for iOS 6.1.3. They’re waiting for Apple to release a major update.

While it makes sense to preserve the exploits for a major update, it is also a risk as Apple could fix them on their own in the next major iOS software update.

It also remains to be seen if Apple will release iOS 6.2 before it releases iOS 7 and if evad3rs team will release a jailbreak for it.

So if you’re a jailbreaker, I would advise you to check out this post to find out what the iOS 6.1.3 means for you.

As always, we’ll let you know as soon as there is any update so don’t forget to join our Facebook Fan page or follow us on Twitter or add us to your circles on Google+.

What do you think about evad3rs dev team’s decision not to work on a jailbreak for iOS 6.1.3?

    I agree, it is too big an assumption that Apple won’t fix the exploits. They should not wait for a major update to release the jailbreak, especially if Apple doesn’t release iOS 6.2.

  • DrDave

    I agree that a jailbreak should not be wasted on such a minor update like 6.1.3. Waiting for a major update is more prudent.

    That’s the only wise decision they could make. Anything else would be stupid.

    smart move

  • ifonix

    smart move. keep doing the good work looking for exploits and ways to jailbreak. iphone will b so borring without jailbreak and you guys doing great job. keep the faith… so far in this cat-mouse game, you r (almost) always step ahead

  • Cyrus

    Why can’t the evaders expand a bit, and continuously release jailbreaks so apple is constantly defeated…wouldn’t they relax a bit with this cat and mouse bullsh*t if we triumphed day after day?
