Untethered jailbreak for iOS 6.x is finally here! Here’s how to jailbreak any iPhone or iPad on iOS 6.x with Evasi0n.
UPDATE: Are you trying to jailbreak your iPhone so that you can unlock it? How about making it factory unlocked?
Without further ado, let’s begin shall we?
As mentioned in our previous post, Evasi0n supports all 20+ variants of iOS devices, including the likes of iPhone 5, on iOS 6.0 through iOS 6.1.
Supported iOS versions:
iOS 6.0, 6.0.1, 6.0.2, 6.1 are all supported.
- A computer running at least Windows XP or above, Mac OS X v10.5 or above, Linux
- An iOS device running iOS 6.x
- A USB cable for connecting your iOS device to your computer.
Before you begin:
a. Perform a complete backup of your device using either iTunes or iCloud, something may or may not go wrong. It’s better be safe than sorry.
b. If you already have a tethered jailbreak on older devices, just install “evasi0n 6.x Untether” from Cydia to patch your jailbreak to make it fully untethered. Nice.
c. If you don’t have an official unlock, do not update without preserving your baseband!!
d. Note for newbies, this is a jailbreak, not an unlock!
1: Download Evasi0n jailbreak software for your OS (Windows / Mac / Linux) [direct download links at the bottom of this post].
2: Download iOS 6.1 [download links are at the bottom of this post], and update your device using iTunes. Make sure you restore your device to 6.1 using iTunes, and not OTA. Hackers recommended that you update to iOS 6.1 for the best “jailbreaking experience.”
3: Turn off Passcode lock for now.
4: Make sure both iTunes and Xcode (if installed) are not running.
5: Launch Evasi0n.
6: Connect your iPhone to your PC or Mac via the 30-pin connector or Lightning cable. Be sure it’s been detected properly.
Step 7: Click Jailbreak and let the tool work its magic!
Step 8: Be patient. Once done, Evasi0n will let you know.
Step 9: Look for the “Jailbreak” app on the home screen. Tap on it and the screen will turn black. Your iOS will re-spring itself (back to the home screen).
Step 10: Everything else is now automated. Evasi0n will display as “Done” and your iDevice will reboot with Cydia installed!
I’ll be back tomorrow for the instructions on doing all of these on older devices! We haven’t had this much fun since forever!!
