Here’s a complete tutorial on how to jailbreak iOS 6.1.3 on all A4 and pre-A4 devices, including the iPhone 4, 3GS, iPod touch 4G etc using Sn0wbreeze 2.9.14.
With the release of iOS 6.1.3, the Evasi0n iOS 6.1.x untethered jailbreak was patched by Apple. But thanks to Geohot’s legendary Limera1n exploit, it is still possible to jailbreak iOS 6 (and over) running devices rocking an A4 chip. We have already showed you how to jailbreak iOS 6.1.3 using Redsn0w, now we will show you how to do it using Sn0wbreeze.
Before we begin, let’s go through the usual checks.
The Evad3rs team has updated its famed Evasi0n tool to jailbreak iOS 6, 6.1, 6.1.2 with improved boot times. Some users were finding the post-jailbreak boot time was considerably longer than it should have been, but this latest update fixes all that.
Those already jailbroken need not jailbreak again; instead check within your Cydia packages for the updated list, which should become apparent after a refresh.
With the news that Apple has plugged one of the key exploits used by the Evasi0n tool to jailbreak iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices running iOS 6.1.3 beta 2, it looks as though the eventual release of iOS 6.1.3 will prove an insurmountable task for the Evad3rs team. Planetbeing has already stated that, if one exploit is down, the whole jailbreak is basically finished, so if you want to keep your device free from Apple’s shackles, grab this Evasi0n update from Cydia but do not apply any such updates from Apple.
Update 1 (02/28/13): This tutorial also applies to Sn0wbreeze 2.9.11
2.9.10 2.9.11 has just been released to jailbreak iOS 6.1.2 untethered, but first things first, if you have an iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, or any of the other newer iOS device, you should follow our tutorial posted here to jailbreak iOS 6.1.2 using Evasi0n.
The jailbreak community may be alive and reinvigorated with the hard work that has gone into the production of the untethered jailbreak iOS 6.1, but the veteran software in the community is still managing to remain relevant. The always-popular Sn0wbreeze jailbreak tool has now been updated to version
2.9.10 2.9.11, bringing with it a number of important improvements and additions focusing on the new iOS 6.x untether.

Update 1 (02/28/13): This tutorial also applies to Evasion 1.5
Apple quickly released the iOS 6.1.2 update today to address a few lingering bugs in the OS, but luckily, the jailbreak wasn’t patched.
However, the Evad3rs team worked around the clock to update the Evasi0n desktop tools and we are now glad to say that iOS 6.1.2 can be jailbroken fully untethered using the latest version of Evasi0n, which is v1.4.
All iOS devices that are able to run iOS 6.0 through 6.1.2 are supported, including the 5th-gen iPhone. The only exception is the recently released Apple TV 3, which cannot be jailbroken at the moment.
Apple has kept the developer betas of iOS 6.1 coming in thick and fast, and with download of iOS 6.1 Beta 2 having just been seeded by the Cupertino company, we’re here with the usual jailbreaking details.
It is – as ever – a tethered break, and it’ll only work with iOS devices susceptible to the Limera1n exploit, so those running A4 or earlier. If you own an iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPad 3/4 or iPad mini, or a fifth-gen iPod touch, you won’t be able to participate, since none of them can be jailbroken on iOS 6. If you’re rocking an iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, or iPod touch 4th-gen and wish to jailbreak on the latest dev beta, you can do so with ease.
The latest version of Redsn0w hasn’t been updated to support the new iOS 6.1 beta 2, and likely wont be updated until iOS 6.1 is public, but if you follow the usual guide – pointing to the new firmware instead of the old one – then you’ll find the jailbreak works once again.
