Finally, that moment so many people have been waiting for. The good news is that iPhone 5 users will be finally able to jailbreak their devices, on Sunday (hopefully). Till now, A5 and A6 chips sporting Apple devices were out of luck for jailbreakers, but perhaps the coming Sunday can change the game.

iOS 6.1 pwned

Many jailbreak rumors are surfacing on the Internet and it finally looks like we can expect to see a 6.1 jailbreak. MuscleNerd, a member of the Evad3rs jailbreak team tweeted his excitement, shedding more light on the upcoming untethered jailbreak and its release date.


And here’s a small clue that mentions “Sunday” as the day of the launch.



Talking about the supported hardware and device compatibility, he confirms that all iOS devices like the iPhone 5, iPad 4, iPad Mini, etc which are able to run iOS 6.1 firmware are compatible with the jailbreak. There are 22 such devices that will be supported by the first Evad3r’s release. Apple TV 2 will also be supported, now that the firmware is out. Apple TV 3 users will miss the fun as this device won’t be supported, as of yet.

Also note that this is an “untethered iOS 6.1 jailbreak”, which means that you won’t need to connect your device to the computer whenever you reboot it. This is the type of jailbreak that everyone was waiting for to free their devices.

Planetbeing, another member of the Evad3rs team also tweeted that the code found in iOS 6.1 is vulnerable to the exploits the team is planning to use.
