Now that iOS 6.1 is out for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, users of older Apple devices like the iPhone 4 can jailbreak IOS 6.1 right now, without waiting for the upcoming iOS 6.1 jailbreak from evad3rs to upgrade and jailbreak, even if it is a good idea to wait.
The iOS 6.1 jailbreak or the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and iPod touch is a tethered iOS 6.1 jailbreak, which means users won’t be able to reboot away from a computer without losing functionality.
Users who want to use the tethered iOS 6.1 jailbreak for the iPhone 4 to get Cydia up and running on the latest version of iOS can follow the instructions on RedmondPie. Users will need to download redsn0w, the iOS 6.1 ipsw and the iOS 6 ipsw to make the magic happen.
Most users will be better off waiting for the evad3rs iOS 6.1 jailbreak to arrive. This iOS 6.1 jailbreak is confirmed to work on all the iOS 6.1 devices available, including the iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS, and it is untethered. An untethered jailbreak is better for daily use as it lets users reboot their iPhone without being connected to a computer.
The evad3rs Dev Team is teasing a Super Bowl Sunday iOS 6.1 jailbreak release date, but we may not see this because the team needs to polish the jailbreak and test it ahead of a public release.
Based on Tweets from @Planetbeing the iOS 6.1 jailbreak might not come on Sunday, but it should arrive soon after. Wether the iOS 6.1 jailbreak arrives on Sunday or early next week, most users won’t miss out on anything by waiting for the untethered iOS 6.1 jailbreak.
