Are you one of those folks who are currently waiting for iOS 6.1 untethered jailbreak? Well if you are, then I highly suggest you read this before trying out the new jailbreak that is going to be released very soon.
iOS 6.1 Untether Wait
Most of you would probably by now be aware of the latest news regarding iOS 6.1 untethered jailbreak. Apple released iOS 6.1 yesterday only to be met by hackers who claim they have hacked into the OS (jailbroken). This news would have been a relief to many of you who were anxiously waiting for an untethered jailbreak for iOS 6.
Currently we do not have an untethered jailbreak for iOS 6 even after months of waiting but that is all about to be changed. Team Evaders who are currently working on the iOS 6.1 untethered jailbreak mentioned that they have successfully jailbroken Apple’s latest firmware. Finally.
Unlike other rumors you might have heard about the release date; we finally got to know that they (@musclenerd, @pimskeks, @planetbeing and @pod2g) teased us with a release date. @musclenerd, the leader of the iPhone dev team mentioned that they might release the iOS 6.1 untether jailbreak this coming Sunday. Which if you are a jailbreak fan is a huge thing. Sunday is Funday!
Preparation for iOS 6.1 untether jailbreak
So now we know the date for the release of iOS 6.1 untethered jailbreak. So are you completely ready for it? Well not quite.
Those of you who are planning to jailbreak their iPhone, iPad and iPod touch this coming Sunday should know one very important thing. Before you attempt the jailbreak (once it is available) you should do a full restore of your iOS device.
To do a full restore simply connect your iOS device to computer and head to iTunes. On the left hand side it will show your iOS devices’ name such as “Maypalo’s iPhone”, simply tap on that and click restore. Make sure you back up before attempting the restore.
Those of you who have already updated to iOS 6.1, should also restore their devices to iOS 6.1. Remember not to update via OTA (Over The Air). Restoring via iTunes is necessary.
If you people plan to upgrade to iOS 6.1 please don’t do an OTA upgrade. Please make a full restore using iTunes.
