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.
SBSettings is, in my opinion, one of the best jailbreak tweaks on offer over at the Cydia Store.
Through different revisions of iOS and on numerous devices, it has always been the very first tweak I have installed following a jailbreak, and when I am lucky enough to have it running on a jailbroken device, I’d say it saves me an average of ten minutes a day. Dragi, a new tweak over at the BigBoss repository, takes the power of SBSettings and its various toggles to the next level by allowing you to use the lock screen’s slider to trigger custom actions.
Over the last couple of days, a group of iOS developers has been targeted with a series of rapid-fire texts sent over Apple’s iMessage system.
The messages, likely transmitted via the OS X Messages app using a simple AppleScript, rapidly fill up the Messages app on iOS or the Mac with text, forcing a user to constantly clear both notifications and messages.
In some instances, the messages can be so large that they completely lock up the Messages app on iOS, constituting a ‘denial of service’ (DoS) attack of sorts, even though in this case they appear to be a prank. Obviously, if the messages are repeated an annoyingly large volume but don’t actually crash the app, they’re still limiting the use you’ll get out of the service. But if a string that’s complex enough to crash the app is sent through, that’s a more serious issue.
As far as prominent figures in the jailbreak community go, Joshua Hill – also known as P0sixninja – is up there with the best of them.
If you remove his various public Twitter based meltdowns from the equation, you are left with a person who has undoubtedly been one of the most important components in the production of recent jailbreaks.
Although we haven’t heard a great deal from him since his rather acrimonious departure from the Chronic Dev Team, it looks like he could be potentially about to propel himself back to the top of the pecking order after claiming to have all the necessary exploits required for the production of a new jailbreak.
