When Apple released iOS 6.1.3, it killed the evasi0n jailbreak. evad3rs, the developers of evasi0n jailbreak have also announced that they didn’t plan to release a jailbreak for iOS 6.1.3 or iOS 6.1.4 (iPhone 5), as they don’t want to burn the vulnerabilities before iOS 7 is released to the public.
While there is a tethered jailbreak for iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and iPod touch 4, users of newer devices like the iPhone 5, iPad 4 who may have accidentally upgraded to iOS 6.1.3 or iOS 6.1.4 have been stuck without a jailbreak.
Things have been fairly quiet on the jailbreak front, but a tweet by winocm, a respected member of the jailbreak community, earlier today has raised some hopes of an untethered jailbreak for iOS 6.1.3.
I now have a binary that untethers 6.1.3. Needs some more work though.

He however notes that some more work needs to be done. With iOS 7 round the corner, it probably makes sense to wait as Apple could fix the vulnerabilities before it is released to the public.
What do you think winocm should do? Wait for iOS 7 or release it as soon as it is ready?
