iOS 6.1.4 Jailbreak Successfully Working on iPhone 5

The jailbreak community has a new reason to be happy. Winocm who brought an update to the iOS 6.1.3 untethered jailbreak has made another release showing a proof displaying the iPhone 5 with iOS 6.1.4 running Cydia.

The tweet does not offer many details, but the shared image offers a complete story. In the same time, the image shows the fact that there is hope for the jailbreak community, and jailbreak untethered for iOS 6.1.3/iOS 6.1.4 should not be far away. This is the first time when the respective firmware has been publicly hacked.

iPhone 5 on iOS 6.1.4 sucessfully jailbroken

As it was mentioned earlier, the developer has been busy in the last period working and announcing his jailbreak for iOS 6.1.3. The respective jailbreak was offered last week and jailbreakers who test it confirmed its efficiency. Now, his progress is good news for everybody who relies on a jailbroken device and who lost their jailbreak when upgrading to iOS 6.1.2.

The picture tweeted by the developer shows Cydia running on both GSM (AT&T) and CDMA (Verizon) version of Apple’s latest handset. The devices were running on the latest public version of firmware available at this time.

It is worth mentioning that so far, there is no compatibility list available since nobody had tested other devices, besides iPhone 4S and iPhone 5. However, the proof released clearly suggests that the Cydia, the third party store, works normally on recently jailbroken iPhone 5 using Winocm’s jailbreak.

Winocm, the jailbreak developer, was able to get the iOS 6.1.4 jailbreak without much effort since the firmware is very similar to iOS 6.1.3. In the same time, the Evad3rs team said that they have some untested exploits, and the team is patiently waiting for the public release of iOS 7.

Users who expect the untethered jailbreak and are not willing to update to the forthcoming firmware should avoid upgrading their device to any small firmware update at this point. Jailbreak developers advise users to wait patiently until further details regarding the iOS 6.1.3/iOS 6.1.4 untethered jailbreak are released.

The iOS 6.1.4 was released in May for iPhone 5 users only, and it brought only a small improvement regarding a bug fix. The updated was only 11.5 MB, and it was unjailbreakable until now.
