Evasi0n was the first ever untethered jailbreak for the iOS 6 was patched by Apple in iOS 6.1.3/6.1.4. There was reports that an untethered jailbreak for iOS 6.1.3 was still possible but that it was not publicly available as it needed a little work. Today we have some great news for those running iOS 6.1.4 on the iPhone 5.
iOS 6.1.4 was released in May for the iPhone 5 and we can report that users can now jailbreak this. Developer Winocm, who achieved the untethered jailbreak on iOS 6.1.3 last week, tweeted an image of iOS 6.1.4 running Cydia on an iPhone 5. Details are still a little scarce and we can only assume that progress is being made and Winocm's exploit is indeed capable of jailbreaking iPhone 5 on iOS 6.1.4.
For all those users out there eagerly awaiting an untethered jailbreak and who are uninterested in Apple's new iOS 7, it is recommended that you ignore any software updates on your iOS device and wait for further confirmation on this untethered iOS 6.1.3/6.1.4 jailbreak. If you are already running iOS 6 all the way up to iOS 6.1.2 you can still jailbreak using Evasi0n on all iOS devices.
Some of the code that is required to jailbreak iOS 6.1.4 has been made public by Winocm but the downside to this is that is is not like most public jailbreaks. If you are looking to download an executable and have your iPhone jailbroken in seconds this is not for you. This code is just part of the magic required to get Cydia installed on an iPhone and users who choose this route will need to have their own kernel exploits in order to get the ball rolling. This is however a big start and with iOS 7 just around the corner we are sure there are plenty of people who would be only too happy to stick with iOS 6 if an untethered jailbreak is on the way.
