Hate iOS 7? iOS 6.1.3 & 6.1.4 Jailbreak Is Incoming


If you’ve been clocking into Cult of Mac over your Christmas holidays, you’re probably already aware that the iOS 7 jailbreak is out thanks to the tireless work of Team Evad3rs. The jailbreak is compatible with iOS versions 7.0 through 7.0.4.

But what if you hate iOS 7? What if you love Scott Forstall and skeuomorphism? What if you’re still rocking iOS 6.1.3 or iOS 6.1.4, the last stable versions of iOS 6, on an A5+ device?

Well, good news: a jailbreak is imminent for the last versions of iOS before Jony Ive rebooted it.

The jailbreak for iOS 6.1.3 and iOS 6.1.4 are coming from iOS hacker iH8sn0w, who recently posted to Twitter, saying that the jailbreak is coming along nicely. And to prove it, he posted a teaser video of the jailbreak running on a fifth-generation iPod touch!

ih8Sn0w believes that his tool will be a Mac-only release, at least at first, and could be released as early as next week. All of which means that whether you are rocking iOS 7 or are one of iOS 6’s last remaining holdouts, there will soon be a jailbreak perfect for you.

    YES! Been waiting patiently to jailbreak my iPhone 5 but I refuse to use iOS 7. Looking forward to it!
