Downgrade iPhone Running ios 6.1.3 to ios 6.1.2: Currently we cannot support this process. It is very complicated and requires some extra research to complete the process. Not all phones will be able to be downgraded. The best thing to do is not update the iPhone to 6.1.3 until there is a stable untethered jailbreak, and a stable carrier bundle and commcenter patch created. Please follow these instructions carefully, and use google to find any information that you need.
Again, if you happen to be on iOS 6.1.2, DO NOT update to iOS 6.1.3, or you will lose your untethered jailbreak. This tutorial applies to users of pre-A5 powered iOS devices only, who may have accidently updated to 6.1.3, or those developers who want to test their tweaks and apps on 6.1.3 for any future public untethered jailbreak release.
The update, which has seen various beta releases over the past months, and by various, we mean a lot, brings with it a slew of new features and, perhaps more importantly, fixes to existing issues, making the overall user experience more worthwhile. Some of those issues may seem rather minor, whilst others are biggies, especially if they happened to affect you!
How-to Jailbreak iOS 6.1.2:
Step 1: Update your device to iOS 6.1.2 using iTunes (download iOS 6.1.2 from here): if you are jailbreaking your device, why not update it to the latest version of iOS? OTA updates might mess with the jailbreak, therefore a fresh restore via iTunes is strongly recommended.
Step 2: Turn off Passcode Lock in case you have it enabled. In order to do this, simply head on over to Settings > General > Passcode Lock > Off.
Step 4: Start up Evasi0n on your computer and simply click on the “Jailbreak” option. Kick back or grab a cup of coffee as Evasi0n does its work and jailbreaks your device. Remember not to touch anything while your device is being jailbroken.
Step 5: Once this is done, your device should boot straight back. You will see a new Jailbreak icon on your home screen. Tap on it in order to finish the process.
Step 6: Your device will now reboot quite a few times for a short while, before it boots into the jailbroken state. Once this is finally done, your device should boot back in a jailbroken state.
You are done: if everything has gone as expected, Evasi0n should indicate that the jailbreak is complete. Cydia should now also be on your home screen.
Soon after the release of iOS 6.1, it came to the attention of the tech world that a major security flaw allowed basically anybody with a spare couple of moments to slip through the passcode system and access a device’s confidential, and supposedly secure data. The release of iOS 6.1.1 a couple of days back, which fixed lingering cellular and battery issues with the iPhone 4S, is also susceptible, and an urgent update is required on all fronts to sort this mess out. According to iFun, a German blog which accurately pinpointed the aforementioned 6.1.1 release, reckons that will likely be “early next week”, meaning those conscious as to the security of their iPhone will only have to wait a couple more days.
The wait is over, and today we’re happy to release updated versions of aTV Flash (black) and Seas0nPass that support the recently released 5.2 (iOS 6.1) Apple TV software. Big thanks goes to the evad3rs for making much of this possible.
The update that is now filtering through to Cydia and showing up as an update on devices carries a version number of 0.3-1. One of the main focus of the update is the bundled functionality to disable the over-the-air update daemons that annoyingly force users to be prompted of any available firmware updates. The installation of version 0.3-1 will mean that the Settings app will not make us aware of the availability of iOS 6.1.1, when it goes live at a point later on. Secondly, it fixes the automatic date and time issue on all devices which have been jailbroken using Evasi0n.
The Evasi0n desktop tools for Windows, Mac and Linux have also been revamped to the next version number, which is v1.2, to implement these changes on all newly jailbroken devices. If you are one of the few that have been waiting until all bugs have been ironed out before injecting the Evasi0n untether, then it would seem that you are set to benefit from the experience of others. All freshly jailbroken devices using the latest Mac, Windows and Linux iterations of Evasi0n should be free from many bugs being faced by numerous users worldwide.
If you’re already jailbroken using Evasi0n, simply launch Cydia, tap the Changes tab at the bottom of the screen and you should see an update to the Evasi0n untether package, install, and you’re done.
Speculations have already put the 5th iteration of the iPad at a rather smaller dimension in comparison to the current variants, albeit still larger than the iPad mini. Most notably, the renders indicate a much thinner bezel on the iPad 5 on the sides, while a thicker, although reduced, bezel on top and bottom of the device. The resultant is a rather decent sized tablet that is bound to get even more fans fall for it. Apple hasn’t been keen on changing the way its tablets looked until now, but it seems that if this render were to taken seriously, the fruit company has learnt a lesson or two.
