How To Jailbreak iOS 6.1.3 On Pre-A5 iPhone And iPod touch With Redsn0w 0.9.15b3

how to jailbreak ios 6.1.3    It is no longer news that the final build of iOS 6.1.3 has been released thereby putting an end to apple signing of iOS 6.1.2. This final build comes  with bug fixes and improvements over the prior release. However there is a mixture of both good and bad news for those who wish to jailbreak their apple idevice on this build. The bad news is for owners of A5 iDevices e.g iPhone  5 has Apple has patched Evasi0n untethered jailbreak exploits for iPhone 5 and other newer devices. So if you accidently updated to 6.1.3, there is no way for you to untether-jailbreak your device. For newer devices, there is no option to downgrade to older firmware either. But if you happen to have A4 pywered iOS device, e.g iPhone 3gs e.t.c you can tether jailbreak iOS 6.1.3.

Using the latest release of redsnOw which is redsn0w_win_0.9.15b3 which was released in 2012, a tethered jailbreak can be applied on all pre-A5 iPhones and iPod touches, those vulnerable to the Limera1n exploit, such as the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and iPod touch 4th-generation. Unfortunately, as mentioned above, newer devices like the iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPad and iPod touch 5th-generation cannot be jailbroken.

However my candid advice is that if you are currently on iOS 6.1.2, do not update to iOS 6.1.3 as this will make you loose your Untethered jailbreak. To follow this tutorial, you must agree that you are  a user of an A4 apple iDevice only.

Supported iDevices:

  • Apple;  iPhone 4, iPod touch 4, iPhone 3GS

Required Files to be Downloaded:

  • Redsn0w 0.9.15b3 [Windows / Mac]
  • Download iOS 6.1.3 restore firmware below:
  • iOS 6.0 IPSW. You can download iOS 6 from the below links:

Before you go ahead, keep in mind that this is a tethered jailbreak and will require you to plug your device into your computer anytime you wish to reboot your device.

Step 1: Download the original iOS 6.0 from the link provided above.

Step 2: Download and fire up Redsn0w 0.9.15b3 and run it. Download links above.

Step 3: Click on the visible Extras button and choose Select IPSW. Point Redsn0w to the unmodified iOS 6.0 IPSW you downloaded in step 1.

Step 4: From Redsn0w’s main screen, simply click on Jailbreak and follow the easy on-screen instructions. When prompted, choose to install Cydia.

Step 5: When instructed, enter DFU mode with the help of the Redsn0w wizard.

If all has gone well, Redsn0w will now start doing its magic in the background: jailbreaking your device using the Limera1n exploit and installing Cydia in order for you to install and run third-party tweaks or packages. This process should not last more than just a few minutes.
