Upcoming iOS 6.1 Jailbreak to Support Nearly All Devices


iOS 6.1 Jailbreak

With the public release of iOS 6.1 now available, many iDevice users will start to look forward to an eventual jailbreak. According to a member of jailbreak team evad3rs, users won’t have long to wait and nearly every iDevice made in the last three years will be supported.

MuscleNerd, a member and spokesperson for the jailbreak team, tweeted early Monday that all iOS 6.1-compatible devices, except for the Apple TV, will be supported in the upcoming untethered jailbreak. This includes the following devices:

  • iPhone 3GS
  • iPhone 4
  • iPhone 4S
  • iPhone 5
  • iPod touch (4th generation)
  • iPod touch (5th generation)
  • iPad 2
  • iPad (3rd generation)
  • iPad (4th generation)
  • iPad mini

The jailbreak team expects the Apple TV 2 to be compatible with the jailbreak soon, but support for the Apple TV 3 may never arrive as it is a far more difficult device to crack.

The jailbreak is near completion and may be released as soon as Super Bowl Sunday (February 3), according to a followup tweet from MuscleNerd.
