Jailbreak iOS 6.0, 6.0.1, 6.1 and 6.1.2

Edited by Maria

If you have at least an iPod, iPad, iPhone or an Apple TV, then you may have heard the word "jailbreak" or "jailbreaking". This is not what you literally think it is, because for Apple products, jailbreaking is a process of eliminating Apple's restrictions on their iOS operating system in order to take advantage of privileged access. A jailbroken iOS device can still use the App Store, iTunes and other functions normally. It allows users to fully customize the way the Apple device functions, how it looks and a whole lot more.

Jailbreak iOS 6.0, 6.0.1, 6.1 and 6.1.2 Untethered: Must-Knows Prior to the Jailbreak Process

Users of iPhone should be thankful for the emergence of iOS hackers, who teamed up and worked hard in order to craft a tool that could free a myriad of iOS devices from various factory-subjected boundaries. As highly cognizable iOS 6 is already out, and finally, the 6.1 untethered jailbreak 'evasion' has been finally introduced on the 3 primary platforms, which are Windows, Linux and Mac OS X.

This newly developed untethered jailbreak weapon could aid each iOS gadget (but Apple TV 2 and 3 are not included), which could run iOS 6 and beyond. Listed below are devices that it could support: iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPad mini, iPad 2, iPad 3, iPad 4, iPod Touch 4, iPod Touch 5.

Even though evasion could support any kind of iOS 6 firmware, it is still much better to upgrade the gadget to version iOS 6.1, before finally do the jailbreak process. This must be done in order for the user not to miss out the brand new features of the current firmware update of Apple.

On top of that, the users should as well not update their gadgets OTA or Over the Air, if they truly want to jailbreak. Instead of doing OTA, users could download the firmware of iOS 6.1, as well as update through iTunes, in order to defy any kinds of issues.

  2. 2
    Important Notes.
    User should backup his/her device by utilizing iCloud or iTunes prior to evasion. User should disable the pass-code of the lock of his/her iOS gadget prior to usage of evasion, in order to defy issues. User should also avoid all kinds of tasks that are related to iTunes and iOS, until the evasion has finished the jailbreak process. In an event that the procedure has been stuck at a certain point, user could restart the program, as well as reboot the gadget (to do this, user could hold down the Home and Power options until the device shuts down), and then rerun the procedure. In case there is an error on the OS X 10.8 implying that the evasion can't be unlocked, what the user has to do is right-click or control-click the app and then on the context menu, user should select the option 'Open'. On the succeeding dialogue box, user must also select the option 'Open'. To know the jailbreak process, iOS users could search and watch tutorial videos. In case, the user finds it difficult to follow; don't be a hero, get help from an iOS expert.
