For the past few days is among us a new version of the operating system for Apple iDevices. I already did get after its launch, the developments and improvements that brought with version 6.1 of iOS that although have been quite limited, it is a highly anticipated release for the untethered jailbreak for 6.1 should arrive imminently.

In the last hours is much speculation about the release of the tool that enables the jailbreak for version 6.1, which is estimated to go live next Sunday. If it is so, since we'd like you to receive EsferaiPhone a number of aspects to consider to be prepared and leave your device ready to jailbreak and thus, have no problem in the attempt.

For starters, it should be recalled devices that do not bear the jailbreak, because his version may not be the 6.1. In this sense, we find the following devices:

  • iPhone 2G
  • iPhone 3G
  • 1-3G iPod touch
  • iPad 1
  • Apple TV 3

In case your device is not in this list, it means that you will be able to perform the jailbreak untethered to it, being the terminal support and you can install Cydia, improved and optimized for the new release. Then, we suggest a series of steps before starting the jailbreak process:

  • Make a backup of your device data:

Before starting, it is always important to have a current backup, which can do both via the iCloud and through iTunes. In case something goes wrong, you always have the peace of mind that your data before the operation is safe and fully available to reload them back into the terminal.

In addition to the backup, if you are a user who owns iOS 5 jailbreak on your terminal, you may want keep the repositories you have installed in it .

  • Prepare to restore to the latest software version (6.1):

While we can update our terminal via iTunes or through the OTA, so we install the new version before updating, since evasi0n team (responsible for creating the jailbreak) we recommend performing a full restore of the operating system from iTunes and from there load the backup made previously. You may eventually also be compatible with an update via OTA, but until confirmed better not risk it.

  • Ten computer and a cable handy:

From Evad3rs page you can see both the jailbreak status (68%), as some of the features which will be jailbroken and the minimum required. This way the software will run on both Windows, Mac and Linux, and the process will last about 5 minutes. Of course you will need a cable to connect the device to your computer.

  • Waiting patiently:

The managers of the jailbreak for this version, Evad3rs says it will launch the same throughout this week. Obviously, all the steps you can make well in advance, so be prepared to have your device ready, with all your information secure, for it is for many, a highly anticipated release.
