* If your Apple device is running on iOS 6.1.2, DO NOT UPDATE to iOS 6.1.3 if you wish to keep your jailbreak.
iOS 6.1.3 was unexpectedly released yesterday with a number of updates, general bug fixes and performance improvements. We had warned our users previously not to update to this version of iOS if they wished to keep the jailbreak.
Unfortunately, this version patched up some of the exploits used by the evasiOn team to jailbreak iOS 6, which means that if you update to iOS 6.1.3 you will lose your jailbreak!
Is iOS 6.1.3 Jailbreakable?
The answer is yes, but not for all devices. Moreover it is a tethered jailbreak using redsn0w. If you go for a tethered jailbreak, you will have to connect your device to a PC every time you reboot it.
Compatible Devices – Pre-A5 devices, iPhone 4, iPhone 3Gs, iPod Touch 4
iPhone 5 and other A5 devices are not jailbreakable on iOS 6.1.3.
This update mainly consists of the passcode bypass bug fix and improvements to maps in Japan. However, iOS 6.1.3 isn’t completely bug free either. So if you are not in Japan or if these updates are not of any use to you, do not update to iOS 6.1.3.
