Stefan Esser, known as @i0n1c in the Jailbreak community, broke silence on Twitter today, announcing that Apple’s latest firmware iOS 6.1 adds even more security against Jailbreak. In the past, Esser has played a big part in bringing iOS exploits and being responsible for the iOS 4.3.x Untethered Jailbreak Exploit.
The iOS exploit hacker Tweeted that he thinks Apple has changed something in its security and that iOS 6.1 adds “tougher protection” against Untethered Jailbreak iOS 6.1. In October planetbeing released a Failbreak, which opened the Jailbreak to some private developers helping to find a way and making the Untethered iOS 6 Jailbreak work. The Failbreak was the only thing close to a public release of anything related to an iOS 6 Untethered Jailbreak. i0n1c mentions that iOS 6 hasn’t been “broken” yet, so this could be why his thoughts on Apple upping security could be true.
We still have no idea when we will be seeing an Untethered iOS 6 Jailbreak, Untethered iOS 6.0.1 Jailbreak, Untethered iOS 6.0.2 Jailbreak or Untethered iOS 6.1 Jailbreak. We do know that the Dev Team always works with the base firmware first, being iOS 6.0, and then moves on to see if others are possible. So far there hasn’t been any word if Apple made any changes in iOS 6.0.1 or iOS 6.0.2, but if you have a device on iOS 6.0, it is best not to upgrade if you are planning to Jailbreak.
The upcoming Untethered iOS 6 Jailbreak will include the iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod Touch 5G, iPod Touch 4G, iPad Mini, iPad 4G, iPad 3G, and iPad 2G. This means all of the devices running an A6, A6X, A5, A5X, and A4 processor will be able to use the upcoming Untethered Jailbreak iOS 6.
