A few days ago we reported to you that @Wincom the well known developer and hacker announced on his official Twitter account that iOS 6.1.3 and iOS 6.1.4 will be jailbreakable very soon to all devices running on the two firmwares I've mentioned above..
After all, this is the same developer that worked on an iOS 6.x downgrade, the jailbreak tweak Accentify, and has had various other contributions to the community. Needless to say, when he announced that he had an untether binary that still needed a bit of work, my ears perked up.
Wincom told us that the progress on the jailbreak. Although the project is still knee deep in its development phase, he did allow us to go hands on with some of his work. Today, with the help of winocm, I was able to install Cydia on my iPhone 4S running 6.1.3. If we’re ever going to see a proper tool released for the iOS 6.1.3 jailbreak, he just could be the developer to do so.
Today the folks at iDB got a video which shows Cydia installed on iPhone 4S running on iOS 6.1.3... Check out the following video after the jump:
With that being said, the verdict is still out as to whether this will result in an actual release that everyone can take advantage of. Although winocm seems bent on accomplishing just that, releasing a working jailbreak to the masses isn’t exactly a cakewalk.
The iPhone 4S now is running on official jailbreak, which means you can download themes, jailbreak tweaks and more...
It’s a good start, but that’s coming from a lay person whose intelligence when it comes to this stuff reaches a plateau fairly early in the game. Winocm is a ridiculously smart individual, so I wouldn’t be surprised if he did eventually release something to the public. I just wouldn’t be surprised if he didn’t, either.
With iOS 7 on the horizon, I’ve heard a lot of folks talk about the usefulness, or lack thereof, of a iOS 6.x jailbreak this late in the game. I still think an iOS 6.1.3 jailbreak would be mighty useful, and tons of people would be happy to have a jailbreak for their 6.1.3 devices. What about you? Would you be happy to have it?
A big thanks for Wincom for this huge work and we hope to see something big very soon.
