Update on Untethered iOS 6.1.3/6.1.4 Jailbreak For A5+ devices


There have been rumors and speculations that we may see an untethered jailbreak for iOS 6.1.3 and iOS 6.1.4 shortly after iOS 7 is released. If you did not update your device to iOS 7 in the hopes that a jailbreak for iOS 6.1.3/6.1.4 will be released soon then we’ve some good news for you.

iH8sn0w, developer of jailbreaking tool such as Sn0wbreeze, has just confirmed in a blog post that a jailbreak for iOS 6.1.4/iOS 6.1.3 is indeed in the works.

iH8sn0w says that they’re currently working on fixing issues such as:

These range from Applications automatically deleting themselves from the uicache to iMessage/Facetime activations not working (even on legit sims). 

The jailbreak will work on A5+ iOS 6.1.4/iOS 6.1.3 devices, which means it will work on the following devices:

  • iPhone 5, iPhone 4s, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS
  • iPad 4, iPad mini, iPad 3, iPad 2
  • iPod touch 5G, iPod touch 4G

It is currently possible to jailbreak iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and iPod touch 4g, but it a tethered jailbreak (except for iPhone 3GS with an older bootrom).

If you’re wondering why iH8sn0w and team are planning to release a jailbreak for iOS 6.1.4/6.1.3 rather than using the exploits for iOS 7 jailbreak, then that’s because the exploits don’t work on iOS 7.

Here’s a video that was posted on YouTube last week, which shows an untethered jailbreak for iOS 6.1.3 in action:

iH8sn0w also points out that there is a lot of work before a jailbreak for iOS 7 is released as quite a few things are broken in iOS 7 such as:

Cydia, MobileSubstrate, and WinterBoard. Not really worth pushing anything at the moment until these issues are sorted out 

He hasn’t provided any ETA on when it will be released, but should keep us posted on the progress.

As always, we’ll let you know as soon as there are any further updates so stay tuned here at iPhone Hacks, or join our Facebook Fan pagefollow us on Twitter or add us to your circles on Google+ or subscribe to our RSS feed.

  • William

    Would the Jailbreak work after I had updated to iOS 7 and shortly after downgraded to iOS 6.1.3 while it was still being signed?

    • Steve

      yes no problem at all

      • William

        Thanks, will try as soon as something comes out!

  • Zathrak

    oh thank god. been waiting and attempting to forget that ios7 ever happened. waiting with bated breath.

  • eclipse

    will there be a way to upgrade from 6.1.2 to 6.1.3 or 4 ?

  • Crom!

    I am happy with all this but I have a question. I am still running 5.1.1 on my iPhone 4 (not S) and I never updated to any other version. Should a jailbreak for 6.1.3 come out, would I be able to upgrade to 6.1.3 using a custom OS? Or is 7.0 my only path from here on and out?


    • Romeo

      I’m afraid the news are not good… since it seems apple is no longer signing anything below 7 these days… I’d stay with 5.1.1 just in case; not sure if there is any workaround (might be, but I’ve never heard of it). Good luck though!

      • Rob

        5.1.1 is the best.

      • Arianna

        I’m in the exact position as you.

  • Dan

    To bad Apple will soon stop signing 6.1.XX so yeah useless JB.

    • Dude

      they already stopped signing them…….

  • tony

    Im on IOS7 beta 5, I still have my blobs saved from stock 6.1.4, could I go back to 6.1.4 or am I just stuck going to IOS7 public release?

    • terry williams

      if youre asking you should be runnning a beta

  • Hadi

    Now that Apple doesn’t sign 6.1.3/6.1.4, will there be a way to upgrade from 6.1.2 to 6.1.3/6.1.4 and then jailbreak?

    • Xia

      If you have iphone 4 or 3GS and have saved SHSH then Yes otherwise no

  • rix1

    I only hope that the ios7 JB won’t be avilable when ios8 will be out……

  • Dee jay

    That’s messed up! :(

  • Brice

    iH8sn0w, developer of jailbreaking tool such as Sn0wbreeze, has just confirmed in a blog post that a jailbreak for iOS 6.1.3/iOS 6.1.3 is indeed in the works… Typo iOS 6.1.3/iOS 6.1.4

    • Gautam

      Thanks Brice, fixed the typo.

  • C-Los

    I doubt anyone iOS 7 is unhappy 6.1.3 sucks even if jail broken…..compared to ios7

    • Vince777

      not really… my iPod 4g on 6.1.3 runs way faster than my dad’s 4s on 7.0. And they’re gonna have a hellava time jail breaking iOS 7

  • Smitty Werbenjagermanjenson

    my 4S still has 6.1.2 jailbroken. so I’ll just hang onto that even after I get my 5S tomorrow

  • Michael C

    Can’t wait!! Been waiting for centuries for the ios 6.1.3 jailbreak!! Sucks for people that upgraded to ios7. I don’t have to worry cuz iPod touch 4G can’t upgrade to ios7 :) highest it can be upgraded to is iOS 6.1.3 haha

    • JJtoob

      Yes, this is the perfect time for us to jailbreak since we will no longer get any updates from Apple, so as soon as it’s out, I’m jailbreaking mine.

  • Robert Mcdonald

    The only thing I really miss from my jailbreak after updating to iOS 7 is my xbmc and ifile but heck I can wait I love iOS 7.

  • Magona Tragon

    when is ios 6.1.4 jailbreak released exactly?

  • mom

    Help, updated to iOS 7 on iPhone 4 and this week unable to use phone. I keep trying to go back to iOS 6 but I get an error message on my Mac. I am not a tech person, can anyone direct me to a site that can help me?

  • jack

    glad there is someone that is actually showing a real thing besides some fake crap like winocm did

  • Rick

    Lol finally someone working on this long jailbreak instead of scammers posting up fakes like winocm.

  • Chewbyka

    Keep up the good work. Upgraded my iPhone 4 (the apogee of iphones in my opinion) to IOS 7 – slowed my phone down and many features not implemented so downgraded back to IOS 6.1.3 before they shut the gate. I wished I’d have stayed on IOS 6.1.2….

  • Tyler

    Can I downgrade an iPhone 4 from iOS 7 to iOS 6.1.3 if I have the SHSH blobs?

  • drake

    is this working on iphone 4s 6.1.0,, i wantto jailbreak myy iphone.. please help

  • Alex4921

    Just got myself an Iphone 4S (Screw the 5,too costly and too much power for what I need) hoping there’d be a jailbreak(Didn’t research before :P ) and well guess there wasn’t
    Looking forward to when this is finally released

  • ima_boss

    idc its our devices let us have the jailbreak!!!!!! once we get it we dont care if it screws our devices up! i want a untetherd jailbreak D:

  • apple_fanboy

    Cannot wait for iOS 6.1.3 JB for iphone4. From what I hear iOS 7 causes performance issues on iphone4, plus iOS 7 is still full of bugs.

  • apple_fanboy

    From what I hear, it’s only worthwhile updating to iOS 7 if you have iphone 5 / iphone 5s / iphone 5c. (iphone 4s and iphone 4 hardware is too slow).

  • Nike dont touch my balls

    hurry up already, we don’t care if your gonna blabber bout how this and that works just do it. I’m NIKE and i approve this message.
