iOS 6.1 Untethered Jailbreak

It's finally here! The untethered jailbreak everybody's been waiting for! This will jailbreak all of your iDevices running iOS 6.1 and below. Yes, iOS 6.0.1 and 6.0. And yes, iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, new iPod Touch and iPads. All devices except Apple TV. Not going to keep you waiting, let's get to it!!

First thing you want to do is download the new version of TinyUmbrella. Links will be found on the right side of the screen, select the one appropriate to the OS you're on. Launch TinyUmbrella, plug in your device and save your SHSHblobs if you haven't already. Close it down, launch iTunes. Second thing you want to do is backup your iDevice in iTunes or via Wireless Backup. Now, preferably you want to restore and update your iDevice to iOS 6.1 directly through iTunes. DO NOT DO OVER THE AIR UPDATE ON YOU DEVICE! It may cause issues later on. It's always a great idea to do a fresh restore and update before jailbreaking. Then you can sync all your stuff back. Now let's get to the jailbreaking! (note: this is a Windows tutorial).

1: Download the evasi0n jailbreak tool.

2: Once downladed, extract the file and right click on it, run as administrator.

3: Before you proceed, disable the passcode if you have one setup.

4: Plug in your iDevice. Evasi0n should register it.

5: Click on the "Jailbreak" button.

6: Sit back and relax. Do not touch your device until prompted to do so. Let it do it's magic.

7: Evasi0n will ask you to unlock your device. When you do that, you will see a new icon called "Jailbreak". Tap it ONCE and that's it. It will launch, and go back to home screen. At this point, evasi0n will continue doing it's magic. One tap and that's it, leave your device there and don't touch it anymore.

8: Be patient. The device will reboot once or twice, maybe even more than that. Leave it alone, let it continue on it's own. No rush.

9: Evasi0n will finish and say "Done", the rest of the process takes place on the device. Again, leave it be until you see the evasi0n logo at the boot time. When the lockscreen comes up, slide to unlock and there you go! Cydia on your iOS 6.X iDevice!

10: Reenable your passcode now and you're set.

At this point I'm assuming all of you know what you're doing with Cydia on your iDevices. When you launch Cydia, select wether you're a User, Hacker or Developer and Cydia will load all the packages and exit. Then you can launch Cydia again and setup your sources and install your favorite tweaks. That's all there is to it! Congrats, you have successfully jailbroken your device! I think now it's the best time to upgrade to iPhone 5 for me! :)

Remember, this was a Windows tutorial but you can click here for more detailed instructions as well as a video or here for the Mac version. Linux is supported but I don't have a way of telling you how, I would assume it would be similar in launching the program, but all the steps in regards to waiting, taping "Jailbreak" icon once and waiting some more are definitely the same.

I am not responsible for what you do to your device, if it breaks then it's on you. Don't try this unless you know what you're doing.

Note: if any of the tweaks or sources do not load for some reason, please give a try again later on. There's thousands of others trying to do the same thing at the same time so servers are overloaded. I'll just wait a little bit longer until it all calms down. :)

Enjoy your untethered freedom! And please support the devs with any amount by donating here. They're not asking for any money, but I think it's our duty to say "Thank You" for all their hard work they put into this tool for all of us to use. Keep an eye out on this blog because I've already noticed a few cool new tweaks that are well worthy of reviewing!

Cheers!
