[WARNING] - DO NOT Update to iOS 6.1 if you want Untethered Jailbreak

Many jailbreaking enthusiasts out there will have heard of Stefan Esser, aka i0n1c. He has just issued a tweet from @i0n1c talking about a change of guard at Apple and how even tougher protection had been added to iOS 6.1, despite the fact that the jailbreaking community hasn’t yet managed to jailbreak iOS 6. Although this is not a huge statement it does pack a punch, coming from somebody so much a part of the jailbreaking community and who came up with the untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.3.2, as reported by iClarified. As well as this he was responsible for the jailbreak for the iPad 3 on the iOS 5.1so i0n1c certainly knows what he’s talking about.

If you still hope to eventually jailbreak your A5 or A6 iOS 6 device then you may want to hold back on updating to iOS 6.1 when it comes, bearing in mind this rather gloomy news. As Cult of Mac reminds us, the “changing of the guard” that i0n1c alludes to is that iOS chief Scott Forstall recently received his marching orders and Craig Ferenghi who replaced him, seems to have even less tolerance of jailbreaking.

This will be a big blow to those waiting to jailbreak their iOS 6 devices but we need to remember that pod2g and others haven’t yet given up on an eventual iOS 6 jailbreak, even if it doesn’t exactly look close. However rather than waiting for iOS 6.1 it seems that was a red herring as it will be even harder to crack so remember, don’t update to it when it arrives soon if you still want to wait for a jailbreak at some point down the line.

However, MuscleNerd from the Dev Team warned Jailbreakers not to upgrade beyond iOS 6.0. See his tweet below.
