Check if Your device is Supported

The very first thing you must know about iOS 6.1 jailbreak is that whether it supports your model of iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch or not. Chances are very high that your device is supported by the iOS 6.1 untethered jailbreak because it will support all the latest devices and also the older ones that can run iOS 6.1 firmware. Here’s the list of devices supported by iOS 6.1 untethered jailbreak:

  • iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS
  • iPhone Touch 5G, iPod Touch 4G
  • iPad 4, iPad 3, iPad 2, iPad mini
  • Apple TV 2G

Any device other than these devices cannot be jailbroken with the upcoming jailbreak.

Backup Your Personal Data

It’s always recommended to backup your personal stuff before jailbreaking or updating your device. You can backup your iPhone, ipad or iPod Touch’s personal data using iTunes or iCloud. Just make sure that your contacts, photos, notes, videos and other personal data is safe and secure before you even think about jailbreaking. If your device is jailbroken on an older firmware and you want to backup Cydia apps, you can always use PkgBackup to backup Cydia tweaks and apps.

Update to iOS 6.1

Now that you’ve backed up your personal data, it’s time to update to iOS 6.1 (Not recommended for iPhone unlockers). There are 3 ways to update to iOS 6.1: Over-The-Air (OTA), Updating via iTunes, Downloading IPSW and restoring via iTunes. For jailbreak sake, it’s recommended to always fresh/clean restore iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch via iTunes. Evad3rs, the hackers team behind the upcoming untethered jailbreak, also recommends to fresh/clean restore and that delta (OTA) upgrade may result in problems.

Here’s our details guide on how to update to iOS 6.1. This is where you can: download iOS 6.1.

Save SHSH Blobs for iOS 6.1

Hia what I can do if I’ve updated my ipad mini to 6.1 useing the OTA
Can I still jailbreak my ipad mini…

iPhoneHeat February 3, 2013, 10:34 pm

A fresh restore is recommended. OTA updates usually don’t play well with the jailbreaks.

Patience people patience! The site is at 93% final testing. It will be out soon enough. Just because its Monday there doesn’t mean it’s Monday where they’re at. Over here it’s only 9pm Sunday. Be patient. You’ve waited this long another couple hours or even days isn’t going to make a difference.
