Do you know that it is possible to downgrade iPhone 4S to iOS 6.1.3 these days? Even while both iOS 8.3 and 8.4 are available to users and Apple continues to test the future iOS 9 version [you can download iOS 9 beta 3 through direct links] there is a program that makes it possible to get back to the old iOS 6 on your iPad 2 or iPhone 4S.
The old iOS 6 is different from iOS 7, 8 and 9. There are a lot of users who might want to use it again. If your model is supported by the tool we’ll talk about you are good to try and downgrade iPhone 4S 6.1.3 without SHSH blobs saved [you are still advised to save your blobs for iOS 8.1.3 and other platforms with TinyUmbrella].
There is OdysseusOTA program that is created as a command line one. With its help you can truly return to the old firmware version on your 2011 iDevice. This firmware works better on the A5 chip and faster than the current firmwares that require newer models and more powerful smartphones and tablets.
How can this tool work? Apple is signing OTAblobs for iOS 6.1.3 and this is how hacker was able to create the program that can help you downgrade in case you want to get back from iOS 8 or iOS 7 to iOS 6. It looks like the famous iPhone maker made some kind of mistake in its code which allows users downgrade through the exploit found and shared by hacker elghtSpace.
Here is how to downgrade iPhone 4S to iOS 6.1.3:
Step 1. Make sure you have iPhone 4S or iPad 2. All other gadgets aren’t supported.
Step 2. Jailbreak iPhone 4S with any program available: TaiG, PP Jailbreak, Pangu etc.
Step 3. Watch the video on YouTube and download the commands shared by hacker under his video.
It is interesting that 6.1.3 jailbreak iPhone 4 untethered solution was introduced not so long ago. This program was created by three well-known hackers, including winocm, SquiffyPwn and iH8sn0w, and officially released in the end of 2013 though iOS 6.1.3 firmware was launched nearly a year ago.
Hackers presented another update for iOS 6.1.3 jailbreak tool called P0sixspwn available for both Windows and Mac operating systems. It comes with some fixes to problems discovered in previous releases. You can download jailbreak for iPhone 5 iOS 6.1.5 and other supported Apple models with versions 6.1.3 – 6.1.5.
Winocm and iH8sn0w released Windows version of p0sixspwn. Use the tool to jailbreak iOS 6.1.3, iOS 6.1.4 and iOS 6.1.5 on Windows computers.
With the release of iOS 6.1.3 and iOS 6.1.4 in March last year, Apple has blocked Evasi0n, allowing to complete the untether process. As a result, most people have lost access to Cydia. Except you will use redsn0w to jailbreak iOS 6.1.3 / 4 / 5 tethered.
The last few months working hackers on tools to crack iOS 6. Created utility called p0sixspwn. You can use it to jailbreak iPhone, iPad and iPod touch on operating systems iOS 6.1.3-6.1.5.
The program is available for Mac OS X and Windows.
iPod touch 4G
p0sixspwn 1.0.4 was released for Windows and Mac but before jailbreaking you need to download the tool:
Users who wish to jailbreak iOS 6.1.3 devices can use the P0sixspwn jailbreaking tool released for different iGadgets running iOS 6.1.3, 6.1.4 and 6.1.5. The instruction is not difficult to use.

The tool is must-have for users who are using 6.1.x firmware and don’t want to update to iOS 7 while wishing to use jailbroken applications and games from Cydia store.
Users who happen to own iPhone 4 GSM smartphone have troubleshooting while trying to make jailbreak iOS 6.1.3 untethered work using the method shared by iH8sn0w and Winocm. Hackers have shared their guide on how to solve the issues and updated their program to fix the problem.
While a lot of users experience problems with the untethered iOS 7 jailbreak Evasi0n7 presented by the Evad3rs team, some people are still using iOS 6.1.3 – 6.1.5 devices which can be also untethered thanks to iH8sn0w and Winocm hackers who released their jailbreak iOS 6.1.3 untethered instruction for iPhone 4 / 3GS and iPod touch 4G owners.
Here is how you can perform the untethered jailbreak for these three devices. If you are already jailbroken with tethered jailbreak, you should follow the guide shared by iH8sn0w.

Fixes to Problems
Some iPhone 4 GSM users experience problems while jailbreaking. Here is a troubleshooting guide to fix iOS 7 jailbreak issues on iPhone 4 GSM.
Note. Hackers promise to update Sn0wbreeze and release jailbreak for A5+ gadgets.
And now hackers iH8sn0w and Winocm presented the long-awaited iOS 6.1.3 untethered jailbreak for iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 4G.
With the release of iOS 6.1.3 Apple closed vulnerability which was used by hackers to jailbreak iOS 6.1.2 and lower with evasi0n. A week later, hackers released Redsn0w – tethered jailbreak for iOS 6.1.3, and a little later there was a tool Sn0wbreezxe which you could use to create custom iOS 6.1.3 firmware tethered jailbroken.
Naturally, this situation does not suit either users or developers of the exploit and hackers continued working on creating untether jailbreaking. It was first demonstrated yesterday on the media player iPod Touch 5G, and today has become available for devices iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 4G (iH8sn0w and Winocm promise adapt exploit for A5 + processors later this week).
How to make untethered jailbreak iOS 6.1.3 – 6.1.5 using p0sixspwn
Step 1. First, you must jailbreak your device using Redsn0w or Sn0wbreeze
If you don’t have activation tickets or supported baseband by ultrasn0w you can use IMEI unlcoking service and make your iPhone to be forever unlcoked no matter what iOS / baseband / SIM card you try to use.
Hacker Winocm, previously repeatedly demonstrated the jailbreak for iOS 6.1.3 and iOS 6.1.4, marked the release dates of public exploit. According to him, the release will take place in the next few months. In late September Winocm said the jailbreak iOS 6 is almost ready for release.
A hacker has asked people to be patient, noting that “the jailbreak will be released before 2014.” While we are waiting for iOS 7 jailbreak the developer has posted video demonstrating jailbroken iPhone 5 on the operating system iOS 6.1.4.
Previously was also published a screenshot of a hacker, who confirmed the existence of an exploit for the iPhone 5. In the past Winocm also talked about the preparation of untethered jailbreak iOS 6.1.3 for iPhone 4. Now, apparently, he is preparing a version for the iPad tablet.
At this point there you can use only Sn0wbreeze or Redsn0w to crack iOS 6.1.3. They are available for the iPhone 4 and 3GS, but this jailbreak is tethered.
This means that each time you restart the device must connect it to the computer
As always, remember that I will be following the development of untethered jailbreak for iOS 6.1.3/6.1.4 and will post any fresh news.
