The iOS 6.1 was released yesterday. The new operating system can be jailbroken through the program ‘Redsn0w’ but only for older iDevices and in connected mode.
Redmond Pie, the Microsoft-based technology site, gave details about this feature. It said that the latest iOS by Apple could be jailbroken via ‘Redsn0w’ version 0.9.15b3. However, to do so, the users have to connect their device to their computer each time they restart it.
In addition, Redsn0w’s latest version works on only older devices like fourth generation iPod Touch, iPhone 3GS, and iPhone 4 that have an A4 chip. The users who have latest iDevices will not be able to use it.
Redmond Pie hinted that an untethered version could be released on Sunday, February 3. An iPhone developer team called ‘evad3rs’ was reported to be working on a full version of untethered iOS 6.1 jailbreak, which would likely to work on latest iDevices including the Apple TVs too.
