iOS 6.1.3 Untethered Jailbreak – iOS 6.1.2 Download Links

Posted on 01 April 2013 by William Johnson

The Jailbreak community is ready for more good news, as the cat and mouse chase game between the tech giant Apple and the Dream Team of hackers gains more momentum after new exploits for the upcoming jailbreak have been discovered.

Earlier in the year the Evad3rs Dream Team had revealed major security holes untouched by Apple with the release of iOS 6.1.3, despite patching up several other vulnerabilities.

After Apple patched up the remaining vulnerabilities the evasi0n jailbreak was almost killed and this raised a lot of questions and concerns about the future of jailbreak releases.

Regardless of all this, Joshua Hill – one of the most popular iOS hacker and researcher aka P0sixninja has claimed that he has discovered new exploits that would be required for the upcoming iOS 6.1.3 untethered jailbreak.

In his latest twitter update, P0sixninja who is also a former member of the Chronic Dev Team said that so far it looks like the entire next jailbreak release would be created by him. In another tweet he said that the Evad3rs have not gone any far and all the required exploits have been discovered by him all on his own.

The veteran hacker is yet to reveal any proof of concept (POC) to demonstrate the new exploits with the iOS 6.1.3 jailbreak, the next jailbreak is expected to be released only after Apple releases the new version of iOS (iOS 7).

It is a well-known fact that Apple has a reputation of fixing the security loopholes in their subsequent iOS releases, so the jailbreak developers would not take any chances this time.

P0sixninja and the evad3rs are working harder to find more exploits and loopholes left by Apple so that they can reveal yet another jailbreak for their fans. We can expect another major jailbreak release very soon until and unless Apple fixes the major security holes which the hackers have claimed to have discovered.

Notification for U.S. readers, jailbreaking your iPhone is perfectly legal, but jailbreaking your iPod touch, iPad, or iPad mini falls into a grey area of the law.

iOS 6.1.3 update creates trouble for some users – iOS 6.1.2 Download Links

Posted on 30 March 2013 by Scott Stewart

Apple’s iOS 6.1.3 was structured to fix a security bug that let someone access the iPhone by sneaking past the lock screen. But the update also seems to have affected some users with other problems.

The obstinate battery drain rears its ugly head again with iOS 6.1.3. Several people posting on Apple’s Support Communities forum say the battery drains faster after installing the new update. Some have tried the usual steps, such as turning off notifications and restoring the device to factory settings, but say their battery charge still doesn’t last long.

The battery drain issue occurs when connecting to Microsoft Exchange another problem that’s been around awhile. This one was supposedly fixed with iOS 6.1.2 but still seems to trouble a certain number of people.

Battery drain appears to be a relentless complaint with every new iOS update.

A significant number of people ran into battery drain woes with iOS 5.0, forcing Apple to release several consequent updates to try to resolve the problem. Even after those updates, several users said they continued to experience battery drain with each new update.

Another iOS 6.1.3 bug affecting some users is Wi-Fi connectivity. Several Apple forum commenters say their Wi-Fi connections are inoperative. This particular issue has been around since iOS 6.0. Some say the problem was fixed with iOS 6.1.2 but came back with 6.1.3, while some say it was resolved with 6.1.3.

Apple has acknowledged the problem in the past and offers a support page with suggestions on resolving it.
Still one more issue influencing a few people is a battery drain that occurs when connecting to Microsoft Exchange – another problem that’s been around awhile. This one was supposedly fixed with iOS 6.1.2 but still seems to trouble a certain number of people.

For iOS 6.1.2 you can find the download links below:

iOS 6.1.3 Update Clogs Evasion – iOS 6.1.2 Download Links

Posted on 26 March 2013 by Stephen Clarke

Approximately more than a month after of jailbreaking frenzy, Apple has shut the cell doors again. The latest 6.1.3 update to iOS released on Tuesday have over a patch that clogs the use of the hacking tool evasion, which since early February has become the most popular program ever for jailbreaking phones and tablets to remove their software restrictions.

David Wang, one of the four hackers who developed evasion, assures that the new update includes a patch for a bug in iOS’s time zone settings, one of a series of vulnerabilities that permitted users to dismantle the iPhone’s and iPads considerable security measures.

Since evasion was released in a very short span, however, around to 18 million devices have already been jailbroken, according to data from Jay Freeman, the administrator of the Cydia app store for jailbroken devices which includes 13.8 million iPhones, 3.4 million iPads, and 1.1 million iPod Touches.

Aside from occluding evasion, the update also fixes a bug in iOS that let anyone to bypass an iPhone’s lockscreen using its emergency call function, allowing partial access to the phone’s private data and even to make calls.

Compared to some previous jailbreaks, Apple took its time in patching evasion. By contrariety, the company took only nine days to fix the bugs exploited by Jailbreakme 3.

Evasi0n, on the other hand, requires a USB connection between the device being jailbroken and a PC, vastly reducing the risk that it could be used for malicious purposes.

Wang says that at least one of the bugs used in evasion remains in iOS. And he’s told me previously that the hacker team who cooperated on evasion, known as the evad3rs, has a backup supply of arcane bugs in iOS that they’re saving for future jailbreak tools. It’s unclear how many of those bugs might be patched in iOS 6.1.3.

Any user who updates to iOS 6.1.3 will lose the ability to jailbreak his or her phone for months or possibly years to come. But Wang says there’s still no fix available to jailbreakers for the lockscreen vulnerability that’s also patched in this update

For iOS 6.1.2 you can find the download links below:

iOS 6.1.3 Beta 2 download available and make it more difficult to jailbreak

Posted on 15 March 2013 by Francis Pybis

Apple revealed the second Beta of iOS 6.1.3 last week, which is very likely going to kill evasi0n. As in the iOS 6.1.3 beta 2, Apple had patched at least one of the five key exploits used by the hackers to create evasi0n.

Now it will be more difficult to jailbreak. It goes to show that Apple is determined to keep its users from using their iOS gadgets off the way the firm had planned. But jail breakers see a lot of potential being unleashed with their jail broken iPhones and iPad devices.

According to Evasi0n co-creator David Wang, Apple’s latest iOS 6.1.3 beta 2 fixes a flaw pertaining to the time zone settings, one of the five bugs exploited by the jailbreak. Apple seeded build “10B318″ of the upcoming iOS 6.1.3 to developers last Thursday.

Evasi0n was dealt a temporary setback when iOS 6.1.1 was released in mid-February, but a subsequent jailbreak version was issued to bring back support for all iOS devices, including Apple’s flagship iPhone 5 and new iPad mini.

In February, the evasi0n jailbreak freed almost 7 million iPhones, iPads, and iPod touch owners after only four days since releasing their jailbreak solution. “Cydia, the application which automatically installs when an iOS device is jail broken is currently used by 23 million users each month,” according to a report.

Wang said, “There may be enough remaining in operating system to create an entirely new jailbreak, as long as Apple doesn’t fix those before releasing the update to the public.”
