The iOS 6.1.2 update was released today by Apple to address some bugs found in the OS which is great news. Some even better news, is that the jailbreak hasn't been patched. The Evad3rs team did however work around the clock to update the Evasi0n tool and we are happy to report that you can now jailbreak iOS 6.1.2 untethered on the iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPod Touch and all other devices using Evasi0n v1.4.
All iOS devices that are able to run iOS 6 right the way through to iOS 6.1.2 are supported by Evasi0n including the iPhone 5. The only exception is the new Apple TV 3 which can't be jailbroken at the moment. Jailbreaking doesn't cause any harm to your device but it is always a good idea to back up your device using iTunes or iCloud before you jailbreak.
Jailbreaking iOS 6.1.2 using Evasi0n v1.4 is exactly the same as before and if you have used Evasi0n to jailbreak iOS 6 or iOS 6.1, then jailbreaking iOS 6.1.2 won't be a problem. Just in case though we have included a brief tutorial that you can follow.
The first thing to do is update your device to iOS 6.1.2 using iTunes. OTA updates can mess with the jailbreak so a fresh restore via iTunes is recommended. The next thing you need to do is turn off the Passcode Lock if you have it enabled and then download Evasi0n 1.4. Start up Evasi0n on your computer and simply click on the “jailbreak” option. All you have to do now is sit back and let Evasi0n do the rest. Don't touch anything while your device is being jailbroken. Once completed, your device should boot straight back up and you will see a new jailbreak icon on your home screen. Tap on this in order to finish the process. You device will reboot a few times for a little while before it finally boots into the jailbroken state. That's it, you're done. If everything has worked Evasi0n will tell you that the jailbreak is complete and Cydia will be available on your home screen.
