iPhone 5 /4S jailbreak iOS 6.1.3, 6.1.4 on Redsn0w Evasi0n pre iOS 7

iPhone 5 /4S jailbreak iOS 6.1.3, 6.1.4 on Redsn0w Evasi0n pre iOS 7Jailbreaking an iPhone 5 or iPhone 4S sounds akin to trying to steal it out of a security case at a retailer and making a run for it, but instead relates to hacking into its system software for the sake of reprogramming it to make it geekier.

Whether iPhone 5 jailbreak is safe is a matter of whether you’re a programmer, and while it’ll end your warranty, it is in fact legal. But up to now it hasn’t been technically possible on system software iOS 6.1.3 and iOS 6.1.4, as no geek has yet figured out how to hack it on either the iPhone 5 or the iPhone 4S. Jailbreakers do have some options, however.

Plan one is to simply not upgrade to iOS 6.1.3 or 6.1.4, as the iPhone 5 and iPhone 4S can both still be jailbroken on older versions of iOS 6. Gambit two, if you’ve already upgraded your iPhone 5 to iOS 6.1.3 and can’t go back – as downgrading doesn’t help your jailbreaking cause – is to sell off your iPhone 5 in favor of a used one that’s still running an older iOS 6 version. You can then jailbreak that iPhone 5 instead

.Option three, if you’re the patient type, is to simply wait until the major jailbreaking teams decide to act, whether it’s with iOS 7 or something like 7.0.1 after the smoke clears.

Plan four is to get aggressive by either petitioning the jailbreak teams to get to work on iOS 6.1.4 for the iPhone 5 and iPhone 4S, or to study up and coding and work on your own jailbreak project.
