With the release of the latest version of iOS 6.1.3, Apple showed why it is always one step ahead of the competition. This version is more developed and has a lot of bug fixes.

If you are considering on jailbreaking your smartphone, it is good to know that Apple has fixed the Evasi0n untethered jailbreak bug for iPhone 5, 4S, iPod Touch 5G, iPad mini, 4, 3 and iPad 2.

Jailbreak iOS 6.1.3 Devices – Works for iPhone 3GS, 4 and iPod Touch

Same goes for the newer devices because the option to downgrade iOS 6.1.3 firmware is not available. However, if you are in possession of A4 powered iOS device you will be able to perform tethered jailbreak on iOS 6.1.3 firmware.

After running some tests, we have confirmed that the latest generation of devices such as iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPad and iPod touch 5th-generation cannot be jailbroken. However, if you are in possession of and older device you will be able to perform tethered jailbreak using the newest version of Redsnow.

Supported Devices:

  • iPhone 4
  • iPhone 3GS
  • iPod touch 4G

It is important to know that if your device is using iOS 6.1.2 you MUST NOT update to iOS 6.1.3 because there is a possibility of wasting your evasi0n untethered jailbreak. In this session I will focus on explaining how to jailbreak your iPhone using redsn0w only for the older devices as I’ve mentioned above.

Jailbreaking Requirements:

The requirements for jailbreaking your device are:

  1. Redsn0w (version 0.9.15b3)
  2. Your iPhone or iPod touch must have installed iOS 6.1.3, if not you can download it by clicking here
  3. You must have iOS 6.0 IPSW, if not you can download it by clicking here.

So now you are ready to start the iOS 6.1.3 jailbreak process.

IOS 6.1.3 Jailbreak Instructions:

Step 1: First thing that you need to do is to download iOS 6.0.

Step 2: Download Redsn0w 0.9.15b3 and Launch it.

Step 3: Click the Extras button and click on Select IPSW. Afterwards navigate Redsn0w to the unaltered iOS 6.0 IPSW which you previously downloaded.

Step 4: While running Redsn0w, click on jailbreak and follow the instructions provided. Shortly afterwards you will be reminded to select and install Cydia.

Preparing iOS 6.1.3 jailbreak

Step 5:After you complete the prior steps you will be informed to enter DFU mode with the assistance of the Redsn0w wizard.

If you have successfully completed all the steps, Redsn0w should initiate and the process of jailbreak using the Limera1n exploit should begin. If you want to install additional tweaks and packages to your device you can install it from Cydia.

Final note: It is important not to forget that this is tethered jailbreak so if your phone loses power due to malfunction or reboots it will be back on the state before it was jailbreaked. But this time if you want to return it to the current state all you have to do is to plug your phone to your computer, start Redsn0w, select Extras and select the Just Boot option and the process of jailbreak automatically will start.

Unlocking your IOS 6.1.3 iPhone

The newest Apple iOS firmware can be unlocked with Ultrasn0w, SAM tool, X-sim, Gevey sim, R-sim card and factory unlock method. Read more here to Unlock iOS 6.1.3 devices.

That’s it! Enjoy your newly iOS 6.1.3 jailbroken iPhone or iPod touch.

  • blake

    My power button doesn’t work, is there a way of jail breaking my iphone4 iOS 6.1.3 using redsn0w without the need to go into dfu mode?

  • Grice

    I cannot find the IPSW that I need for the reboot to work I’ve downloaded the 700mb that says its ios 6 ipsw but it didn’t work! Any help?

  • ewsdafZXawer4sdzxc

  • Kim

  • Avian

    Will Gevey Sim on Iphone 4 work on ios 6.1.3 given that the baseband is preserved? Thanx in advance Sir

  • UnlockBoot

  • billy bebas

    yeah, work for my 3gs, but i have problem ” no service” in my network, please help “”mayday, mayday, mayday””

  • dan428

    That’s because you probably closed the redsnow software after jailbreaking.. and then opened it back up to boot but forgot to select the 6.0 ipsw again. To fix, just restart iphone (hold power + home) then select ipsw and do just boot.. should then boot into jailbreak state.

  • Sanford

    I have an iphone 3gs previously jailbroken on ios 4.1 and on baseband 6.15.00. I want to update it to ios 6.1.3 via itunes but my question is will this change my baseband version? Should I downgrade my baseband first and then update via itunes?
    Please help…

  • viktor

    4 cdma. everything went fine but when done! rebooted and no cydia in sight. I did check the “install cydia” box. but no cydia installed.

  • Nitin

    Remember to download iOS 6.0. NOT 6.1.3, I made the same mistake and learnt from it!

  • Martinol

    you need to select the 6.0 ipsw before starting the jaibreak

  • Simon

    this is a tethered jail break, you have to use the app and click extras > just boot every time you reboot the device. if you never reboot like me, it’s a painless extra until an untethered becomes available.

  • DavyBoy

    There is a Semi Tethered JB for pre A5 devices now, I’m still on iOS 5.0.1 myself, though I did want to give iOS 6 a try out but seeing how I can’t use the SHSH blobs from Cydia TSS server, my only option is to go up to 6.1.3 but the Semi Tethered jailbreak doesn’t appeal to me, my battery life is poor in my iPhone 4 so it powers down quite often.

    I know a Semi Tethered means that I can power off the device and back on and still use most things, but I’d prefer a full untethered jailbreak which I can’t see happening for 6.1.3.

  • Nicholas

    Hello! I followed this step by step didn’t do anything out of order or wrong! the jailbreak i am using is tethered so after i jailbreak i must “just boot” but after i JUst boot and my phone boots up with PIneapple logo Cydia has not been installed? Help?

    If Cydia wont open, you need to “Select IPSW” and choose the 6.0 version and then hit run “Just boot” in redsn0w.

  • Ali

  • xTwisTeDxVidz

    Everything Is Good But NO CYDIA!!!!!!

    please guide… apple allow ios versions update these days or not? because whenever i update my phone to any version it doesn’t work, it only accept factory activated ios 4.1. if anyone knows the issue than please tell me… thanks

  • gubs

    make sure that you are not logged to your apple/itunes account. I solved this by doing a reset on all the phone settings.

  • breck

    to get out of it you need to hold down power and home. that will gwt you out of dfu mode

  • FN1022013 Sharan Vaitheswaran
