How to Jailbreak iOS 6.1.3 with Redsn0w [Instruction for Pre-A5 Devices]
The new firmware v6.1.3 is released for iPhone users, and a lot of you might wonder whether it is possible to jailbreak iOS 6.1.3 since evasi0n exploit doesn’t support this operating system. There is a solution for pre-A5 iPhone owners. They can perform the jailbreak using Redsn0w.
Our detailed instruction on iOS 6.1.3 jailbreak will guide you through this process. iPhone 5 and 4S users have to wait till hackers develop a new exploit capable of jailbreaking their gadgets. You can upgrade to the latest firmware only if you wish to fix some bugs. Also you can downgrade iOS 6.1.3 to 6.1.2 but only iPhone 4, 3GS and original iPad users can do that with saved SHSH blobs.
Tether Jailbreak for iOS 6.1.3
There is no iOS 6.1.3 untethered jailbreak yet, so if you have upgraded to the newest firmware and your gadget is A4 powered, you can only perform tethered jailbreak for it right now. If you are still using iOS 6.1.2, stay on it and don’t upgrade if you want to enjoy your untethered jailbreak status.
