An untethered jailbreak for iOS 6.1 is just around the corner, and we’ve got good news. Jailbreak developer MuscleNerd — a member of the new evad3rs — claims that the upcoming jailbreak will support almost all devices that are compatible with the iOS 6.1 software update.
The complete list of compatible devices is as follows: iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPad 2, fourth- and fifth-generation iPod touch, third- and fourth-generation iPad, and iPad mini. The only devices that won’t be supported are the
Apple TV 2 (Update #1: 1:13 PM Pacific: Nope, the Apple TV 2 will now get the jailbreak, too) and Apple TV 3.
All iPhone, iPad and iPod touch models and configurations will be supported, such as Wi-Fi only devices and those with cellular capabilities as well. And the Apple TV 2 will eventually be compatible with this jailbreak, once Apple issues a software update for the aging set-top box.
Exciting is building around the iOS 6.1 untethered jailbreak. There has not been a public jailbreak available for newer iOS devices in quite some time, so the community is more ecstatic about freeing and unlocking their devices now more than ever. Cydia developers, too, are rushing to update their tweaks for the latest software.
