Well, well, iOS hacker Winocm, who is currently working on jailbreaking iOS 6.1.3 as well as 6.1.4 has given a definite ETA this time, and as per the developer, get ready for the release of the jailbreak “before 2014.” With this news, many iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users will become happy, as they’ll be finally able to jailbreak their iOS devices.
The Evad3rs team did a very decent job last year when they jailbroke iOS 6. This jailbreak was released for all devices running iOS 6 up to iOS 6.1.2, after which the Cupertino company plugged the exploit that made jailbreak possible with the Evasi0n. However, with the release of iOS 6.1.3 and 6.1.4, Evasi0n stopped jailbreaking these new OS’s, perhaps because they were waiting for the launch of iOS 7, and there was no point in wasting time and effort on older versions.
However, with Winocm, it seems that he has made his way far ahead in terms of jailbreaking 6.1.3 & 6.1.4, and although he has not gone there yet, his recent Tweet suggests that the jailbreak is not far. All we know right now that the jailbreak will be here before 2014. Perhaps, during the holiday season? That would definitely be a nice holiday gift for all of us.
Winocm also urges users to remain patient, and says that “we are all trying to get things done as soon as possible.”
iOS 7 jailbreak scene
Talking about the iOS 7 jailbreak scene, all we know right now is that the jailbreak is currently in progress, according to Planetbeing. Rest assured, we will keep our fingers crossed to see the jailbreaks of iOS 6.1.3, 6.1.4 and iOS 7 soon. We hope someone from the Evad3rs team also posts an ETA for the jailbreak of iOS 7. We’ll keep you posted on that.
