Here’s How to Jailbreak iOS 6.x Untethered With Evasi0n for iPhone 5, iPad Mini, 4S etc.

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?

Supported devices:

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!!

Now that you have an untethered jailbreak, how about making your AT&T iPhone officially unlocked??!

Fix ‘There is No SIM Card Installed in the iPhone’ iTunes Error After iOS 6.1 Update

Just updated to iOS 6.1 but getting the iTunes error “There is no SIM card installed in the iPhone you are attempting to activate”? Here are some possible fixes.

This is a rather weird issue because you already have your SIM card inserted but iTunes is saying otherwise.

You can try the following fixes:

1. Take out the SIM card and insert it again (you may have to do this multiple times)

2. If that doesn’t work, try using a newer SIM card (friend’s, wife’s, collague’s etc). Some old SIM cards are not able to activate iPhones running on iOS 5 and above.

3. If that still doesn’t work, visit your nearest network provider and get a replacement SIM card. Be sure to try your iPhone there and then.

If you have an iPhone 3GS with iPad Baseband 6.15.00…

If you have iPad baseband 6.15.00 installed before, for whatever reason iTunes won’t let you activate your iPhone on iOS 6.1. Apple may have quietly put this restriction in place. In case you missed the news, you can now downgrade from iPad baseband 6.15.00 to 5.13.04.

How to Downgrade Baseband iPad Baseband 6.15.00 (iOS 6.1) to 5.13.04

1. Google and download iREB and put the iPhone 3GS into DFU mode. Download original iOS 4.1 firmware from here.

2. Click Shift+Restore (Option+Restore on Mac) on iTunes and point it to the firmware you just downloaded in Step 1 (iOS 4.1 is always being signed by Apple even if you don’t have the SHSH).

3. Google and download redsn0w 0.9.15b2 and select Extras.

4. Then select IPSW and choose the same iOS 4.1 you downloaded in Step 1.

5. Go back and select Jailbreak. Select ONLY Downgrade iPad Baseband. Ignore the rest.

5. Redsn0w will start doing the downgrade and you will see ‘Flashing Baseband’ screen on your iPhone with the Pawnapple icon. DO NOT INTERRUPT your iPhone while baseband flashing is in progress.

6. When done, your iPhone will reboot itself and the baseband should have been downgraded to 5.13.04. Try to connect to iTunes once more and see if it would activate.

Those with AT&T iPhones (all models) can be permanently unlocked so that you don’t have to deal with these issues in the future.

If you don’t have an official unlock, you may want to consider using this tutorial.
