Apple Patches Evasi0n Untethered Jailbreak Exploit
The usual cat and mouse game between Apple and vast majority of jailbreaker and hackers have started again.
Evasi0n was the tool that brought about untethered jailbreak to all iDevices running iOS 6.0 - 6.1.2 for a while and seems as though the cat & mouse game ended. However new reports especially from popular member of the evad3rs team David Wang (p0sixninja) says that those that want to keep their untethered jailbreak should stay away from updating to the upcoming iOS 6.1.3 firmware.
It will interest you to know that Apple already released beta versions of iOS 6.1.3 to developers and its rumored that the untethered jailbreak exploit used by Evasi0n have been partly patched.
According to Wang, if one of the exploits are patched, the jailbreak would not be able to function. Consequently, hackers will have to look out for new vulnerabilities in the firmware to create another untethered jailbreak for all devices concerned.
Although, Wang in one of the interviews with Forbes stated that there are enough exploits already developed to keep iOS 6.x untethered jailbreak alive but it would be smart for those that want an untethered jailbreak to remain on iOS 6.1.2 until the coast is clear and the go is proclaimed by the wonderful hackers out there.
With past occurrences, it is known that no really new updates or features will be seen in iOS 6.1.3 that is so different from iOS 6.1.2. Therefore, I will advise that all folks that want to keep their jailbreak should refrain from updating to iOS 6.1.3 should it go live.
