P0sixninja Will Release Untethered Jailbreak After iOS 7 Launch Date
Fresh news about iOS 7 untethered jailbreak came from well-known hacker again. On Friday, a representative of the jailbreak community P0sixninja announced that he has the necessary tools to create a new exploit. Many wondered, would the attacker use the vulnerability he found to jailbreak iOS 6.1.3 or wait for iOS 7 release. Apparently, P0sixninja chose the second option.
Last week, Apple released an update to iOS 6.1.3, which eliminated three of the five vulnerabilities that are required for jailbreak utility Evasi0n. In other words, users of iPhone, iPod touch and iPad on the new firmware is completely cut off from the informal application store Cydia.
In comments of iDesignTimes, P0sixninja wrote that he would not create jailbreak iOS 6.x. He will wait until at least iOS 7.0 or even iOS 7.1 will be produced by Apple company:
“I will at least wait for 7.0, if not even 7.1”
Apparently, this is the preferred option really, as most jailbreakers stay on firmware iOS 6.1.2, which lends itself for breaking. New iOS update does not bring any new features, and on the contrary – causes problems with the battery discharge. By the way, you can fix iOS 6.1.3 battery drain if you already run this firmware.
P0sixninja has been working on this jailbreak. Some tricks came up a few years ago, many told that he was crazy. He decided to go back to their operating time and realized that he was right. So iOS 7 untethered jailbreak is on its way.
Thus, iOS 6.1.3, is likely to become a “dead end” for the operating system Apple sixth generation, of course, if the company does not release an update to fix a bug with fast iPhone discharge. Anyway, after upgrading to iOS 6.1.3, users iOS-devices will not have access to the Cydia store. So you can or downgrade iOS 6.1.3 to 6.1.2 or wait for iOS 7 release and untethered jailbreak for this firmware.
