Things Looking Up for iOS 6.1.3 Jailbreak

After taking so very long to arrive, the most recent iOS jailbreak’s time in the sun was cut short by the release of iOS 6.1.3 (at least for iOS hardware running recent chips), patching exploits used by the tool. All told, we got just under six of free-and-clear jailbreak time before having to decide between keeping our jailbreaks or updating to the latest iOS. Considering all the effort that went into producing the evasi0n jailbreak, some Apple fans have been wondering if we’d once again be looking at a lengthy wait before the next jailbreak arrives. Well, it might be here sooner than you think, at least if p0sixninja has anything to say about it.

The iOS hacker posted to Twitter that he might tackle work on the next iOS jailbreak alone, and that he “discovered all the needed exploits on my own over the past few months.” Just minutes ago, he followed that up with a tweet to pod2g, claiming to have been trying to contact him in regards to these exploits.

None of this is any assurance that an iOS 6.1.3 jailbreak is right around the corner, as even if these exploits are sufficient, there’s still a lot of work in crafting them into a usable jailbreak. At the least, this news certainly has us optimistic.
