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?
