p0sixspwn Untether Jailbreak Cydia package for iOS 6.1.6 released


iH8sn0wwinocm, and SquiffyPwn have released an updated version of p0sixspwn package for iOS 6.1.6 on Cydia.

Apple has released iOS 6.1.6 for iPhone 3GS and iPod touch 4G to fix the critical SSL bug dubbed “Gotofail” in the security community.

They haven’t updated p0sixspwn, the standalone jailbreak tool, so you will first need to perform a tethered jailbreak using Redsn0w, and then install the latest version of the p0sixspwn package v1.4-1 from Cydia to convert the tethered jailbreak to an untethered jailbreak.

Here are the steps:

  • After your device is successfully jailbroken, launch Cydia and install p0sixspwn 1.4 package to convert the tethered jailbreak to an untethered jailbreak.

If you need help, check out our step-by-step guide on how to jailbreak iOS 6.1.6 using a comination of Redsn0w and p0sixspwn.

iH8sn0w has said that updating the standalone p0sixspwn jailbreak tool is not a priority so currently this is the only way to jailbreak your iPhone 3GS or iPod touch 4G running iOS 6.1.6.

As always, let me know how it goes in the comments.

    Does 6.1.6 update change the baseband?

    • Sunil

      I don’t think so, I have updated iphone 3gs from IOS 5.1.1 with baseband 6.15.00 to IOS 6.1.3 and the baseband remains with 6.15.00

      • Vicky

        Have you updated your iphone 3gs from 5.1.1 to 6.1.6 through “Software Update” over a wifi or through a computer and itunes?
        Just let me know…

        • Sunil

          I have restored through itunes. It didn’t work by clicking on update button in itunes but it worked when clicking on restore button.

  • Ivan

    I’ve jailbreaked my 3gs with this method and installed p0sixspwn and still have no service. My iphone is updated to 6.1.6 with 6.15.00 baseband.. I have no clue what to do next..

    • Mohammed Sujathullah

      Install ultrasn0w from cydia package !

    • Mohammed Sujathullah

      p0sixpwn is a package which converts tethered jailbreak to untethered jailbreak ! u have to install ultrasnow from cydia ! to unlock your carrier

    • Quintel

      Reflash the baseband with Redsn0w

    • Sunil

      Hi, It will work untethered on IOS 6.1.6 for 3gs. First jailbreak through redsnow which is tethered and then in cydia install p0sixpwn 1.4-1.

  • Mohammed Sujathullah

    @ivan have u installed ultrasn0w from cydia ?

  • Ivan

    @mohammedsujathullah:disqus I have installed ultrasn0w, but still no service. If there is no other suggestions, I will downgrade to 6.1.2 later tonight, and I will try with evasi0n.. maybe it will work.

  • Guest

    @Ivan I follow all the steps right for an iphone 3gs but after all i get no service. I start from the beginning restoring again the iphone to the stock ios and then i follow again all the steps but on redsnow i installed the ipad baseband and then i get signal ! Now everything works perfect ! don’t forget to install ultrasn0w again to get work !

  • Glorim

    Hi, I’ve updated to 6.1.6 from 4.1 on my 3gs, baseband 6.15.00 in both and also in both there is ‘no service’ please help me. It traveled from US to Europe if it matters.

  • Ruslan

    Hi, guys. Help me. I’ve done all that described and I have Installed iPad baseband. But the iphone 3gs (with 6.1.6) doesn’t work as a phone. no signal. Another problem is that i can’t find p0sixspwn in search engine in cydia. Help me please. My e-mail is rusiksamolet@gmail.com

  • Ruslan

    1.Update your phone to ios 6.1.6 and turn off iphone and itunes without passing iphone registering.
    2.Do all Redsn0w steps in guide. (Do “Install iPad baseband” with installing “Cydia” in redsn0w on the step 7 in the guide if only your iPhone have serial number beginning on xx134 or earlier there are xx901 to xx954 or xx001 to xx054 or xx101 to xx133 available for this install. If you wouldn’t do this install – there wiil be no signal in your old bootrom iphone).
    3.Launch Cydia, it will update itself (if errors in cydia – you have to do all from the start and correctly to my plan).
    4.Find p0sixspwn in Cydia search engine and install.
    5.Find ultrasn0w in Cydia search engine and install.
    6.Reboot your device.
    7.Do a restore from backup in iTunes if needed.

    No other ways to do a jailbreak. I have tried all and done many attempts. This is my only sequence of your movements. Now iphone 3gs 6.1.6 is working.

    Contact me “ruslan_bielozorov” in skype if needed. I think there is no incomprehensible information.

Then I tried to use redsnow to jailbreak which worked but when I tried to untether it by posixspwn 1.4 program, it didn’t work and everytime I turn off my device, it gets stuck on the boot loop (gets stuck on apple logo).

  • King

    I have spent several hours trying redsn0w, pointing it to 6.0.0 firmware, I only managed to get to the point where it states that there is missing plist data for this build. I will need to wait for a standalone jailbreak. Have tried 6.0.1 firmware but no go. I am stuck on 6.1.6 on an iphone 3gs but with no jailbreak. :-(

    • honey

  • Jake

    Hi, I’m currently using an iphone 3gs as my 5 broke whilst travelling. So i backed up the 3gs to itunes, ran the software to jailbreak my phone and it went through all what it was supposed to do. On the program it said Done (iphone may reboot a few times). But my phone never rebooted. I pressed the power button and the apple sign came up for a couple of seconds then just went off. I tried rebooting pressing both the on/off button and the home button – the apple sign stayed on longer but then it would just cut off. I’m unsure what to do now as the phone doesn’t turn on at all, and when I try to restart in safety mode it just cuts off. Anyone got any ideas? Thanks

    • Cory Ferraz

      This just happened to me. What did you do to fix it?

  • thatboishaun

      That is the same issue I have with my 3GS. I hope there is a way to resolve this issue.

      • Ankit

        hi can you advise if your issue of boot loop after P0wsispwn got resolved?

        • Noah N.

          I finally resolved it but I had to wipe and rejail break my 3GS before I could get it to work but it’s now working jailbroken with p0isixspawn untethered currently

      i am facing the same problem can you advise , my email ankitt.varshney@gmail.com

  • Noah N.

    I jailbroken an iPhone 3GS with iOS 6.1.6 using redsn0w, picking the 6.0 ipsw then jail broke it. After It booted up I went to Cydia and installed p0sixspwn and it went back to Cydia and seemed fine. I restarted my phone and now it won’t boot at all, even if I try to tether boot it with redsn0w. I think p0sixspwn had something to do with it. What can I do to fix this? I even tried to re-jail brake it and it gives me an error telling me to let the phone boot up then turn off the phone using the power off slider but I can’t even boot it up to do that. Can someone help me resolve this issue

    • Daniel

      This happened to me but I was downgrading my iPhone from ios 7.1.2 to ios 6.1.3, what I done was restore back to ios 7.1.2 and re-downgraded but this time installed a package from Cydia called ‘Prevent Sleep’ and it works like a charm my phone has not gone into a deep sleep once since I installed the package, so u should try restoring your phone back to the latest ios and then jailbreak, install prevent sleep it might work hope this helps :)
