I0n1c was a big shot in 2011 when he produced a long awaited untethered jailbreak for 4.3.x and gave it for free to the iPhone Dev-Team, who manag ePwnageTool and RedSn0w. To this day he still remains famous among the jailbreak community despite the fact he has not contributed much to the scene whatsoever besides consistently teasing and making fun of it.
You want an iOS 6.1.3 jailbreak? Monday the early bird rate of our iOS kernel exploitation training ends: https://t.co/XdBCDB9eoC

According to i0n1c after “having received numerous requests to organize an iOS Security and Exploitation Workshop in Europe, we have created this brand new iOS security course that is entirely focused on the iOS kernel and its exploitation.”
The training will take place in Frankfurt (Germany) in September and is a full 5-day course costing $4000 EUR (increasing depending on when you purchase).
Just what is going to be covered?
We will cover the latest iOS 6 (and maybe iOS 7) kernel security features, discuss their weaknesses and you will learn how to circumvent them. At the end of the training you should be able to exploit new vulnerabilities in iOS 6 or 7 that you discover in kernel land on your own.
A big focus on this training will be exploiting iOS 6.1.3, in fact one of the topics discussed is a real kernel vulnerability present in iOS 6.1.3. So, who knows maybe someone will take i0n1c’s teachings and create an iOS 6.1.3 Jailbreak… but who knows.
