The iOS 6.1 jailbreak will jailbreak all iOS 6.1 devices, including the Apple TV 2, but will not work on the Apple TV 3. This is an untethered iOS 6.1 jailbreak, so users can expect a full jailbreak experience.

Apple released iOS 6.1 today allowing the evad3rs iOS 6.1 jailbreak team to test their exploits on the final version of iOS 6.1 and according to @planetbeing, the exploits work, but much testing remains.

Safe to Update to iOS 6.1

It is safe for users looking to jailbreak their devices to update to iOS 6.1, but they should plug in to iTunes to update to iOS 6.1 instead of performing the update over the air.


@pimskeks is not clear on if he means a normal iOS update in iTunes or an alternate method, but based on @MuscleNerd’s explanation of why this is important it appears to mean simply using iTunes to update to iOS 6.1.

Stay tuned for the latest iOS 6.1 jailbreak news.
