For those users that are planning to Jailbreak on iOS 6.1.2 then I recommend adding this Cydia Source into Cydia after you jailbreak so you don't have to manually input all the Cydia Sources manually. This will automatically add all the best Cydia Sources and give you access to all the best Cydia Tweaks, Themes and Apps for FREE with just a push of a button. Follow the steps below. 1. Open Cydia 2. Tap Sources 3. Tap Edit 4. Tap Add 5. Type this url in the box (cydiasource,n e t) without the spaces and switch coma for a dot in the url. 6. Tap "Add Source" 7. Install the package labelled "All Sources". This will give you all the best Cydia Sources to have access to all the best Tweaks, Apps and Themes for FREE.

I have iphone4 ios6.0.1 I have successfully installed cydia. However, it is frustrating as I am unable to unlock it using SAM/ultrosn0w/fixer etc. Tried all the above but the phone refuses to work with a sim from another network in another country Very frustrated. All methods to unlock the phone to work on a network in India has failed as the phone was bought in US Any help on where I am going wrong or instructions you can provide will be highly appreciated thanks espee

I need to know how to downgrade from 6.1.3 to 6.1.2 so I can use this method. Does anyone know the best way to do that?

Currently have an unjailbroken 5 running 6.0.1. Is it possible to upgrade firmware at this point? Tried downloading and installing the 6.1.2 but got an error. Also downloaded the 6.0.1 and got the same error. Can I just run the Evasi0n jailbreak per instructions above without changing the firmware or do I need to load the one from the links on iClarified? Thanks.

I wish I could jailbreak my phone but I just don't understand all these videos showing how I don't understand what there talking about and for me I just need a more simpler way of doing it and is there a way to jailbreak it using just your phone or do u have to do it on the computer because I'm having Internet problems at my house and some times I have to go all the way in to town for Internet and I don't have a lab top

There isn't a simpler way to this. You should be glad you don't need to put your iPhone in DFU Mode and then jailbreak. This is a one click jailbreak. Easy as that.

iOs 6.1.3 is only tethered Jailbreak for iphones 3gs, means you have to Justboot your device everytime you power off your device, as you problem it might your BB is on 6.15 and you have to downgrade your iphone BB to 5.13 in order to make it work.

Does this JB still work? I am 5.0.1 and I now want to JB. Did the new OS render this one non-op? I have not yet done any uodates since 5.0.1.

I had to rename the version I used to restore my phone in order to get I tunes to recognize it as restore back up I renamed it the same as the itunes back up'. Itunes recognized the file and restored it to the later version. Unfortunately I did not realize Evasion does not recognize version 6.1.3. So I am stuck with this until evasion is updated to handle it. However my phone is still unlocked and I was able to update some of my apps which require 6.1.2 and above.I would note also I had to use Internet explorer to download Evasion, some other internet navigators will download but the files will be corrupted. By the way thanks for all the info Iclarified is a great source.

rick, do you mind telling me which Evasi0n download you used to jailbrake your iPhone iOS 6.1.3? my iPhone iOS version is the same as yours 6.1.3 and if i'm not wrong the latest download evasion for iOS 6.1.3 should be Evasi0n 1.5.3 (Windows). Did you used this same Evasi0n version? Please let me know and thank you for your input.
Rick
Rick - April 24, 2013 at 11:42pm
sayury perez Thanks for the reply. I used the windows 1.5.3 EvasiOn. It will not recognize the 6.1.3.
